Finding healthy Singapore restaurants that are open for dinner is difficult enough. What more, we love ambience and good food. These did not disappoint.
Here is the perfect scenario: A partner goes on a diet and you’re all for the idea.
Instead of eating out, you whip up healthy spreads for dinner. These revolve around chicken breast, vegetables and fruit juices. You are in for the long term.
Fact is, the reality is hardly sweet. Hectic work schedules often leave no time for cooking. Grabbing dinner at a traditional salad joint makes you unhappy, while having an oily, carb-filled meal irks your partner.
These four restaurants will keep the romance alive:

Dining at this 35,000 sq ft hideout in Dempsey is an experience. We love that it is unashamedly supportive of local produce – there is even an urban farm on site! If you’re feeling adventurous, get a starter of crispy frog legs from Jurong Frog Farm. These are served with beetroot fregola pasta and sour sheep cheese. Don’t worry if you feel like having a salad – the menu has that covered. Remember to make reservations as the place fills up really quickly.

130E Minden Road
Open for dinner: Daily, 6pm to 10pm
Dinner in a converted warehouse has just enough edge to impress a date. Order a spread of small dishes including seared scallops, crispy soft shell crab and chicken bulgogi to share, tapas style. Raw food and salads are readily available too. For a treat, indulge in the Cream of Ebiko pasta. They all sound great to us!
66 Kampong Bugis

3) Real Food

The chain has several outlets islandwide, but our pick is the one at Clark Quay Central – just in case you have to work later that day. Their vegetarian dishes are unprocessed, and free from preservatives and trans fats. We’re sold.
6 Eu Tong Sen Street
Clark Quay Central
Open for dinner: Mondays to Saturdays, until 9.30pm. Until 8.30pm on Sundays.
4) Aloha Poke

These bowls are the latest craze. Diners have a choice of Poké – seasoned tuna or salmon varieties that are tossed with sesame seeds, onions and scallions. The Hawaiian staple is then topped up with salad, rice, pineapples and lime. We guarantee this: Satisfaction here is far greater than a traditional salad bar. It is perfect for a casual date!
92 Amoy Street
Open for dinner: Mondays to Saturdays, 5.30pm to 11pm
