From leafy greens to the freshest sushi, you can indulge in your favourite foods on the go while keeping a balanced diet and skipping out on the extra calories. Now you’ll have no reason not to get back to your (old) New Year’s resolution to eat better.

1. Glow at SuperNature

Founded in 2001, SuperNature has consistently led the way as a trusted provider of the most extensive selection of certified organic and natural products. Step into SuperNature’s new home at Dempsey Road as the wellness brand, part of the COMO group, bids farewell to its old space at Forum The Shopping Mall and move into a new haven designed by renowned Italian designer Paola Navone of OTTO Studio.

Offering an immersive and seamless retail and dining experience, SuperNature caters to the diverse health and well-being needs of shoppers, both in-store and online. At Glow, the cafe and restaurant within SuperNature, patrons can savour a delectable introduction to mindful and functional eating.

Embracing the culinary philosophy of COMO Shambhala, Glow’s nourishing dishes are meticulously crafted using top-quality ingredients sourced from SuperNature and developed in partnership with their in-house naturopath. Besides salads, sandwiches and unique dips, highlights on the menu include the Quiche Florentine ($15), which features a buttery, flaky pastry crust with a rich and savoury filling that’s baked in two layers for a delectable, golden-brown finish. The Beef Noodle Soup ($25) is a warm and hearty dish featuring a robust beef broth crafted from Australian grass-fed beef shin simmered for up to 3 hours, and tender cubed beef and flavourful beef balls made from freshly minced beef, which are imbued with the same fragrant herbs and spices found in the broth.
