5 Best Food Options Available In The CBD Area For The Health Nuts

It’s lunchtime. While Macdonald’s or even the typical Hokkien Mee may sound cheap and good, not everyone would be so keen on consuming these foods. At a time when we are actively encouraged by the government to keep our weight in check and to pay more attention to what we’re putting into our bodies, healthy foods have been gaining popularity among the young crowd, and not just the ladies who are not desiring to put on the pounds.

While The Fun Social does not think that the stigma of healthy food would go away any time soon, you know the words ‘disgusting’ and ‘inedible’ thrown around in conversations, we could spread the word on some cafes and restaurants in Singapore that will make people take back those descriptions. In this article, we would be showcasing the stores located around the CBD area that would be a fantastic alternative for those working folks who are seeking to improve their diet, without having to sacrifice on the delicious factor for that matter!

With two outlets located around Raffles Place and Bugis, A Poke Theory is hugely-popular among the office crowd, serving not only in-house, but also delivery options for those who do not have the time to head out of the office. Here at The Fun Social, we are big fans of the salad shop as their food is incredibly scrumptious. At around $12-$13, customers are able to select their choice of base, flavours, size and toppings for their poke bowl. As such, the salad is fully-customized to each customer’s specific preference and taste. Your notion of salads would no doubt change for the better after taking a bite of A Poke Theory!

There’s Japanese food, and now there’s a Korean alternative as well. For fans of Korean Bibimbap, you’re in luck. The sauces and ingredients are not only organic, but also hand-made and all-natural. Priced at around $8-$13, it is incredibly affordable, making it a perfect option for your daily lunch. That’s not all. The food served is also halal-friendly, and is suitable for vegans and those with other dietary practices. According to the restaurant, while their Bibimbap is deeply-rooted with tradition, it could be considered a modern take.
