The 5 Best Healthy Restaurants In Singapore
The Finest Guilt-Free Indulgences
Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is quite a challenge without being constantly tempted by the numerous sinful delights threatening to weaken our resolve to eat clean every time we dine out. With that in mind, here are the top five restaurants serving up the best wholesome yet utterly delectable cuisine, ideal for a guilt-free indulgent feast with your loved ones.
Proving that healthy food doesn’t have to be bland and boring, is COMO Cuisine. Big and bold on flavours yet still surprisingly light and refreshing, the menu carefully put together by executive chef Timothy de Souza features Asian flavours and techniques and only the finest local and regional ingredients. Opting for healthier alternatives, ingredients such as tamari replaces soya sauce while agave syrup or fruits are favoured over sugar in desserts, as well as the ingenious use of a tandoori oven to naturally enhance flavours without relying on oil. The result is a harmonious medley of unique flavours sure to leave a lasting impression. Take for instance the signature tandoor cauliflower that takes on a smoky flavour, finished with a refreshing side of almonds, pomegranate seeds and yoghurt.

Established in 1997, Singapore’s first and only vegetarian Mediterranean restaurant has developed quite a serious following over the years. This well-loved haunt is anything but sinful and offers up dishes of improbable quality and complexity that keep customers coming back for more. If there’s one thing to try, it’s the Bosco Misto – a pair of spinach, feta and tofu patties coated in almonds and sesame seeds and dressed in a delectable plum sauce.

If you’ve chosen to cut out meat from your diet entirely, dining out to celebrate a special occasion can prove to be a particularly challenging affair. Thankfully, Saint Pierre’s newest fine-dining vegetarian creations, the brainchild of chef-owner Emmanuel Stroobant, are every bit as scrumptious and elegant as its main Michelin-starred menu. A staunch vegetarian himself, Saint Pierre’s recent move to the opulent One Fullerton now offers two contemporary pure vegetarian menus for dinner either in six or 10 courses. Highlights include the Avocado – organic avocado millefeuille layered with pickled bang kwang (jicama) fresh young coconut shavings.

Joie Restaurant by DOZO
Perched on the roof top garden of the Orchard Central, Joie Restaurant by DOZO has joined the meatless fine dining trend offering aesthetically stunning Japanese–French Fusion cuisine. Thoughtfully prepared and plated with finesse, every dish is an exquisite piece of artwork, every bit as pleasing to the eye as to the palate. A prime example of the visual feast to be had here is the Zucchini Tower – slices of zucchini stuffed with crème cheese and truffle mayonnaise placed atop a bed of puff pastry, with a side of beetroot sphere.

The Open Farm Community
One of the pioneers of the farm-to-table concept in Singapore, food at the Open Farm Community is always fresh, seasonal and locally sourced. Its menu changes according to the available produce directly from the on-site vegetable and herb garden complemented with the local Singaporean and regional produce, ensuring only the freshest ingredients with the lowest possible carbon footprint. A must-try is the Watercress Soup, complete with a soft boiled organic egg, crispy kale, served with warm pita bread, not to mention also a personal favourite of the co-founder and celebrity chef Ryan Clift who helms the Tippling Club.
