Are you planning on losing some weight to achieve your body goals for this summer? Well, it’s no secret that exercising alone isn’t enough, so you need to make changes to your diet as well. 

Living in Singapore can make maintaining a clean and healthy diet hard because unhealthy meals are always right around the corner. It takes extra effort to stay away from your favourite hawker meals if you’re used to eating them regularly. 

If your main problem is finding healthy meals on the island, worry no more because we have you covered. We’ve made a list of five dining spots in Singapore with a diverse menu of healthy food, perfect for those who want to change their diet. 

Check them out below to see if what they’re serving fits your taste buds:

1. Dosirak

If you’re a fan of Korean food, you wouldn’t want to miss out on the menu of Dosirak. It’s a small dining spot located at Tanjong Pagar that serves homemade kimchi and bibimbap, topped with modern sauces to add a kick to your meal. 

Aside from it being healthy, the thing we like about Dosirak is the serving size of its dishes; not too big but not too small to leave customers starving. Every bibimbap is served in a tub, so all you have to do is shake it to mix all the flavours and ingredients.

Other people may contest the “healthiness” of bibimbap, but Dosirak is sure that their take on the classic Korean dish is nothing short of healthy. All ingredients used are fresh and sourced ethically. 

It’s suitable for vegetarians as well, as customers can choose fish, meat, or vegan meals. Dosirak’s vegan option includes Kimchi Tofu, Avocado Sweet Potato, and Pumpkin Tofu

If you’re curious about the calorie count: a single serving of Dosirak’s bibimbap contains less than 500 calories. 

2. SaladStop!

Are you looking for meals that can both help you lose weight and improve the condition of your skin? Try SaladStop! You’ve probably heard of it because it’s one of the most famous salad bars in Singapore. It’s even popular in neighbouring countries such as Indonesia, Japan, the Philippines, and South Korea.

Here, customers can create their own salad bowls and add any ingredient they want, including salmon, tomatoes, carrots, avocados, olive oil, walnuts, kale, sunflower oil, and greek yoghurt, among others. According to the specialists at Dermatology Singapore, these are foods you want to consume to boost collagen production, fight wrinkles, and have an overall brighter glow.

No worries about finding a SaladStop! branch either, because there are 14 locations scattered all over the island. There’s probably one near your home or office. You can even opt for delivery if you’re too lazy to drop by any of its branches. 

3. Aloha Poké

With three locations islandwide, Aloha Poké makes it easier to satisfy your cravings for seafood, served how Hawaiian surfers like it. It’s the first of its kind here in Singapore, plus it’s healthy, so we couldn’t help but add it to our list. 

In case you’ve never heard of it, poké is a Hawaiian staple made up of tuna/salmon, scallions, sweet onions, toasted sesame seeds, pineapple, and lime. It’s already a healthy meal on its own. But Aloha Poké makes it healthier by mixing it with salad or rice if you want a bit of carbohydrate. 

Aloha Poké’s meals can be served either a Wasabi Mayo or Spicy Sauce. Or you can have it without either if you’re conscious about calories in those sauces.

For seafood lovers out there, we highly recommend trying out pokés if you want a meal that’s equal parts healthy and unique. 

4. Mahota Kitchen

If you don’t mind spending a bit more on a healthy meal made with farm-fresh ingredients, then we recommend checking out Mahota Kitchen. It’s another restaurant that seafood lovers would want to try as its menu is mostly made up of fish, lobsters, shrimps, crabs, sea bass, oysters, bamboo clams, and more. It runs its own seafood farm, so everything that goes into a place is fresh and sourced sustainably. 

To ensure the freshness of its seafood, everything that’s harvested from their farm is delivered straight to their kitchen within 24 hours. There are no middlemen involved, so there’s a lower carbon footprint as well. 

Mahota Kitchen’s best-sellers include the Silver Pompano, Hybrid Grouper, Steamed Red Snapper with Vegetable Sauce, Fish Maw and Carrot Soup, and the Shi Tang Signature Crab Quinoa Porridge.

It serves keto cakes as well, which is good news if you’re watching your weight but can’t resist a great dessert since a single serving of its keto cake contains only 3.9 grams of carbohydrates. 

5. Healthy Soba IKI

Lovers of Japanese cuisine can finally rejoice because there’s now a way to enjoy it without feeling guilty about your diet. Healthy Soba IKI is a Japanese restaurant that serves 100% organic buckwheat soba.

Some of the health benefits of organic soba are decreased risk of heart attack and diabetes, improved liver and digestive health, and more energy for recharging and muscle growth. Who knew you could get all these from eating Japanese food?

There are different types of soba served at Healthy Soba IKI: Cold Soba, Hot Soba, and Soba with Rice. Its menu even features a Singaporean twist on the dish that mixes it with Bak Kut Teh. Another thing customers like about this restaurant is how fast its services are, so if you’re in a hurry but craving Japanese food, we recommend dropping by. It’s located at One Raffles Place

In Conclusion:

Finding healthy dining spots in Singapore is actually not that hard, as there are many of them scattered all over the island. The only problem is that unhealthy foods are more accessible to everyone. 

If you ever go hungry while on a diet, don’t hesitate to drop by any of these restaurants because they can satisfy your cravings without making you guilty for eating something. 

By the way, if you can recommend other healthy dining spots, please do so! We always love hearing what our readers have to say.
