Guilt-Free Gourmet
Save the earth while you dine at these eateries that take sustainability seriously.

1 Open Farm Community

One of the first in Singapore to push the farm-to-table concept in Singapore and focus on local farming, there’s plenty to do here besides eat. You can also explore the fruit and vegetable orchards or take part in gardening workshops. The focus is on locally sourced ingredients and seasonal and innovative dishes, such as Cauliflower Wings (a crowd favourite) and Local Pekin Duck Rillette (served cold with homemade and homegrown roselle jam, red leaf hibiscus and sourdough crisps). If that’s not enough, the restaurant curates and hosts local farmers to showcase their produce to guests, who can then enjoy these freshly harvested ingredients and learn more about the grow-your-own-food movement.

2 Yellow Pot

This modern Chinese restaurant in the gorgeous Six Senses Duxton is beautifully decorated in black, gold, and yellow, and with – you guessed it – yellow pots of various sizes and designs, too. Decor aside, it is the restaurant’s sustainability efforts that deserve mention. Yellow Pot works closely with local farmers and producers committed to responsible sourcing and sustainable practices, and this can be seen in its dishes. For example, you can order items such as Steamed Kühlbarra Barramundi and Braised Tiger Prawn Crispy Noodle. Unhealthy additives such as flavour enhancers, gluten, and sugar are largely avoided as well. (83 Duxton Rd., Six Senses Duxton, 089540, duxton/dining/yellow-pot-restaurant)
