What is it about? Singapore Restaurant Month is back this year with the focus moving from celebrating local produce in 2015 to eating healthier in 2016! Diners can look forward to enjoying wholesome locally-inspired new and signature dishes across more than 40 restaurants in Singapore. To qualify, the dishes must be either 500 calories or less, or has to be made up of at least 8% wholegrains.
When is this? From 1st July to 31st July 2016, the ongoing Singapore Restaurant Month is held in conjunction with the Singapore Food Festival, which will be celebrated from 15th to 31st July 2016.
Where can I go to savour this? More than 40 restaurants will be taking part in the Singapore Restaurant Month this year, including Heritage Restaurants such as Prima Tower Revolving Restaurant (Dish: Shredded Scallop with Fish & Egg White, 499.9 calories), Jumbo Seafood (Dish: Steamed Cod Fish with Jin Hua Ham in Rice Wine, 146.5 calories) and Red Star Restaurant (Dish: Fish Head with Mustard Leaves & Tofu Sou, 399 calories).
Other restaurants includes Si Chuan Dou Hua (Above Dish: Double-boiled White Fungus in Pear Vessel, 454.2 calories), The Soup Spoon Union (Below Dish: Grilled Salmon with Cauliflower Rice, 486.3 calories), Putien (Dish: Pan Fried Tomatoes with Minced Pork, 311.9 calories) and even Sushi Tei (Dish: Nabeyaki Udon, 489 calories).
What are you waiting for? While we don’t need an event like this to remind us of the benefits of eating healthy, having 46 restaurants coming together and dishing one at least one healthy option as part of the Singapore Restaurant Month is definitely an initiative worthy of our support. Last year we went local, and this year, let’s go healthy!
Who are the organisers? The Singapore Restaurant Month 2016 is organised by Restaurant Association of Singapore, in collaboration with the Health Promotion Board (HPB) and Singapore Tourism Board (STB).
