    1 / 10 1. Grain Traders

    They serve up wholesome food bowls with a mix of grains, proteins, and hot and cold veggies. Everything is roasted, grilled or braised so it’s healthy yet mouthwatering. You can even customise them if you like. It’s insanely popular with the working lunch crowd, and that says a lot about their food.

    2 / 10 2. Guac & Go

    Guac & Go’s salads incorporate our favourite superfood: avocado! And they’ve made it even yummier in the form of guacamole. It’s no surprise that their bestseller is the Guacamonster; they also have a whole selection of interestingly assembled salads like the Crunchy Mushroom or Smoked Duck Mango Guac salad.

    By the folks behind one of our favourite cafes, The Populus Coffee & Food Co., this relatively new haunt serves sumptuous nutritious bowls that’ll convince you to hop onto the health food bandwagon if nothing else will. Boring ol’ chicken thighs have no business around here – tasty proteins are incorporated into the bowls, from braised beef cheek to teriyaki roasted cod and more.

    Can’t let go of local food? Try Red Baron’s Quinoa Goreng – a spin-off of Nasi Goreng – using quinoa as a base and served with shrimp, chicken, chilli padi and a sunny side up egg with ikan billis. Healthy meals mean we get a free pass for dessert right? Right. The French toast is a clear winner – eggy brioche doused in addictive gula Melaka sauce.
