There has been a shifting collective conscious unfolding across the globe, where we think beyond “clean” eating, to now, “green” eating. Our nutritional decisions aren’t revolving solely around the size of our midsection, but caring for the greater good of the environment at large. Where issues of conscious consumption, waste reduction, sustainability and responsible sourcing are at the forefront of many minds. And the hospitality industry in Singapore is quickly picking up on the trend – with a recent explosion of healthy eating options in the Lion City which support sustainable practices and low, or no-waste concepts.
The newest addition to this eco-friendly, nourishing crop is Verde Kitchen, Hilton Singapore’s green-fingered restaurant which is dishing up natural, sustainable whole foods prepared to nourish mind, body, and soul.
The cosy restaurant, tucked away on Level 2 of Hilton Singapore on Orchard Road, seats 32 for their daytime dining menu and features a variety of appetizingly wholesome dishes, accommodating to even the fussiest of health-conscious diners. With gluten-free, dairy-free, vegetarian and raw food options, Verde Kitchen embraces a holistic and wholesome attitude towards healthy eating – one that isn’t about restriction, but rather focuses on celebrating the abundance of high vibrational produce that has been locally and sustainably sourced.
Honouring the cultural highlights of its hometown, Verde Kitchen’s menu brings about a new balance to healthy eating whilst celebrating local delicacy favourites.
“We’re proud to serve healthier versions of local South-East Asian favourites alongside the freshest salads and healthier desserts”.
From the Green Mango and Quick-Seared Tiger Prawns and the Penang Assam Laksa to the Organic Basil-crusted Tooth Fish and Malay-style Organic Lacto Chicken Curry, these salubrious options satisfy your hawker-stall cravings, without throwing any hidden nasties into the mix.
Promoting a greener future without compromising on taste, Verde Kitchen maintains a rigorously upheld “No” list which honours the intention of the eatery. Opting to discard the common mass produced/mass farmed sourcing solutions, each item entering the super green kitchen contains no man-made fertilisers, pesticides, GMO’s, additives or hormones. So you can be assured that what comes through those swinging kitchen doors have been carefully considered to be the best possible option for your, and the environment’s, health.
Maximising healthier cooking methods and practices, the culinary team offers a more nutritious lunch option along Orchard Road, without the usual side-serving of excess sugar, salt, and saturated fat. You can pair your generously portioned main courses – big enough to share, or enjoy all to yourself if you’re refueling post-workout – with a freshly squeezed tonic or probiotic-rich smoothie, packed out with superfoods and an array of alternative nut milk options.
For an added little pick me up, try the Puro Fairtrade Coffee, a responsibly farmed and sourced micro-roaster – yet another tick for the socially conscious. Make sure you leave some extra room though – the no-sugar-added dessert menu has a wicked flourless chocolate cake and supremely light but flavorsome chia seed pudding – for those who like to have their cake and eat it too, sans guilt.
Embracing responsible sourcing methods, 50% of Verde Kitchen’s menu engages locally grown, organic and certified ingredients from nearby farms to support sustainable food systems. They even harvest hotel-grown leafy vegetables from the Vertical Garden located onsite. The outcome? Presenting real food, that holds a superior taste and superseded benefit to society, straight to your plate.
So for the socially savvy diner, who’s wanting to honor their own green conscious – and knows that our power is in our support and spending – then drop by for your next long lunch. Your body and the planet will thank-you.
