1. Knock-out Koshari at Fill a Pita, Clarke Quay
With a plentiful mix of perfectly-cooked brown rice, brown lentils and macaroni, topped with luscious red pepper sauce that will definitely perk you up, this Koshari from Fill a Pita is everything you need to put some pep in your step. If you're a fan of crispy fried onions they'll even pop some of these on top to add a fabulous extra texture to the dish!
2. Incredible Iron 'Wo' Man Salad at Saladstop, Clarke Quay
Combining fabulously fruity flavours and wholesome vegetables, this salad mix is our go-to favourite at Saladstop! overlooking Clarke Quay. With baby spinach and roasted pumpkin providing the nutrients, raisins and toasted almonds adding the texture and natural sugars, topped by salty feta cheese and a sharp raspberry vinaigrette, it's a winning combo every time.
3. Perfect Premium Rendang Rice Bowl at Greendot, Raffles Place
This Rendang Rice Bowl from Greendot is premium for a worthy reason. The real show-stopper of this dish is the Lion Mane Mushrooms that are cooked in a perfectly aromatic Rendang sauce, surrounded by Gong Bao fresh mushrooms, sliced carrots, steamed broccoli and other fresh greens such as seaweed flakes.
4. Rad Rebel Salad Bowls at Kitchen by Food Rebel, Chinatown
One of the easiest ways to get your five-a-day of fresh fruit and veg is to pop down to Chinatown to Kitchen by Food Rebel. Their Rebel Salads are to die for! Topped with mixed organic leaves and drizzled with home-made olive oil or vinaigrette, it's the perfect light lunch with friends or work colleagues.
5. Pukka Paneer Tikka Kurry Korner at Kurry Korner, Orchard
For those who enjoy the flavour of Indian side dishes and appetisers but don't want the meat to fill them up, Kurry Korner's home-made Paneer Tikka is bursting with lightly marinated spices. The cottage cheese is grilled slowly with capsicum and onions in a traditional clay oven for an 100% authentic taste!
6. Plush Penne all'Arrabbiata at Ricciotti Riverwalk, Boat Quay
Who said pasta had to be boring? Not at Ricciotti Riverwalk, that's for sure! Their vibrant, spicy Arrabbiata sauce goes brilliantly with their wholewheat penne. The combination of garlic, chilli and tomato packs so much of a punch that you don't feel like you've missed out on having meat or fish to accompany it.
7. Loveable Lentil Coquette Burger at Real Food, Raffles Place
This hearty veggie burger is jam-packed with lentils and comes with a raw salad and sweet potato wedges. Real Food's burgers are surprisingly dense and is cooked perfectly crispy on the outside to provide that satisfying texture with every delicious mouthful.
