So proud of you, Singapore: The Locavore restaurants to eat at

The F&B scene in Singapore is taking baby steps towards a sustainable future. This month, we highlight two local restaurants that are at the forefront of the locavore movement

In the past, we'd eat the tapiocas grown in our grandmother's garden. But as our country progressed, the farm-to-table process was replaced by bulk produce and imported goods. Thinking about where our food came from became a chore.  

One thing you should know: It's not impossible to have everything on your plate grown and harvested in Singapore.

Ahead, two locavore restaurants (who are mainstays in the local F&B scene) are leading us back to the sustainable eating habits of the past with modern dishes and dining concepts.

This contemporary Middle Eastern restaurant uses veggies only from Quan Fa Organic Farm. Savour star dishes such as the Avocado and Kale Tabbouleh, a modern take on the traditional Levantine salad of lemon vinaigrette-drenched creamy avocado on a bulgur wheat base.

Try the creamy homemade cashew milk noodles bathed in a mildly sweet watermelon consomme with mint, basil and tangy berries.

Address: #01-01, 48 Peck Seah Street 


2.Open Farm Community

A charming eatery with an expansive garden that cultivates herbs and vegetables by Edible Garden City. The greens are used as ingredients in the restaurant.

A favourite dish is the chilled avocado and ginger soup that’s served with poached yabbies.

The ginger’s sharpness and the sweetness of the blue pea flowers add a mild flavour to the avocado soup. The creamy light-green concoction is then poured over the pink yabbies.

Address: 130E Minden Road
