Earth Day’s just two days away! In commemoration, we’ve collated a list of restaurants in Singapore that go green so you can dine with an ease of mind. If you’re curious about sustainable food, check out this post where you can find delectable and flavourful dishes made with sustainable ingredients!
One visit to The LoKal at Neil Road surprised us – but in a positive way. Apart from providing us with comfort food like the Grilled Mortadella Ciabatta and Crabmeat Pasta, we had our iced drinks served without plastic straws! The staff explained that they were trying to rid of plastic straws, a topic that made headlines in Singapore just last month.
So if you’re looking for a cosy space that offers mouthwatering grub with an environmentally-friendly stance, don’t hesitate to pay them a visit!
A widely-popular buffet spot and named Best Halal Spot in Chope’s Diner’s Choice Award in 2016 and 2017, Carousel at Royal Plaza on Scotts is famed for its extensive buffet spread ranging from seafood to Asian favourites, and even a massive dessert selection.
What’s even more noteworthy, though, is that they’re recently rolled out an initiative by recycling daily food wastage and converting them into liquid fertiliser. Now that’s impressive.
Serving up innovative dishes, this innovative restaurant at Dempsey is not just about sustainable dining. With a vision to “strengthen our understanding and respect for food and its origins,” they encourage growing food at spaces like rooftops and sidewalks, in the interim creating a sense of community.
Don’t just settle for their delectable nosh, though. Partake in some of the activities that they regularly organise, which include farming events and recreational activities.
Cr: Kilter Avenue
As part of Kilter Avenue which also comprises of a bar and a gym, this three-in-one space at Shenton Way is one to look out for. Advocating for a healthy lifestyle outside the confines of an office’s four-walls, they’re on a mission to “promote food for the gut, drinks from the heart, and movement that changes the mind”.
To do that, they’ve established their own sustainable garden, and even encourages people to go vegan three times a week to help combat animal abuse, world hunger, energy consumption, and even water wastage. The Chefs themselves are even vegan, and have both worked at restaurants like Tippling Club, Esquina, and Cheek by Jowl!
