Offering healthier and more wholesome dishes, these hotels in Singapore are ready to support you and your clean-eating goals.
Staycations are always a good idea, especially if you’re in dire need to destress and take a break. However, for those watching your waistline, all-you- can-eat bacon and croissants at breakfast buffets and luxurious champagne brunches might be too tough to resist. Leave those worries behind – you’ll be safe from temptation at these hotels.
YOTEL SINGAPORE: GRAINS & HOPS RESTAURANT AND BAR
For your grain bowl ﬁx, head to Yotel Singapore’s all-day dining restaurant, which offers nine rice bowls topped with ﬂavourful skewers.
There are four types of grains: multigrain, basmati, garlic quinoa and Grains & Hops’ signature purple sticky rice – an antioxidant-rich grain that is naturally gluten-free. For a healthier meal, we recommend grilled options such as the Grilled Miso Salmon Fish ($20) or Grilled Chicken ($16) that comes with a multigrain rice base and a house salad. On meatless Mondays, the Vegetarian ($14) bowl with grilled button mushrooms, zucchini, and semi- dried tomato polenta skewers, and aged balsamic dressing on basmati rice won’t disappoint.
HILTON SINGAPORE: VERDE KITCHEN
Using mainly sustainably-sourced ingredients and leafy greens grown in their own vertical garden, this new restaurant in Hilton Singapore offers salads with superfoods and healthier versions of South-East Asian dishes.
Post-workout, refuel with a glass of Protein & Nuts Recovery Smoothie ($13) made with nutrient-rich almond milk, banana and whey protein. For mains, you won’t go wrong with the Organic Basil-crusted Glacier 51 Tooth Fish ($38). The cod ﬁsh comes with a side of local mushrooms, potatoes and a natural thyme jus.
Count on the culinary team to keep your sugar, salt and saturated fat levels in check as they are trained in healthier cooking methods and practices. For instance, both the Flourless Chocolate Cake ($14) and Homemade Gula Melaka Ice Cream ($14) aren’t overwhelmingly rich or sweet – good enough as a relatively guilt-free dessert treat.
