Ah. What is Singapore’s food scene without the infamous chicken rice right? But what if we told you we found an alternative that halves the calories? Simply by swapping the usual bulk of rice to quinoa and still preserving all the familiarities! We dare you to blindfold your friends and feed them – they probably will not be able to tell the difference. This gem tastes like the real deal. *drops mic

Sure, the word lemak translates to fats but there are always choices people! Boasting a space for its own organic farm produce right behind the bistro, the space stresses how important food with low salt content and no MSG are. Quoted from one of their eye catching signages, If you need to raise your blood pressure with more salt, please ask our staff for the POISON. Welcome to Poison Ivy Bistro, everyone.

“I can’t control everything in my life, but I can control what I put in my body. Not only do you get more nutrients by choosing brown rice over white, you will definitely feel full for a longer period of time. Coconut milk is the known villain for containing high level of saturated fatty acid so the folks at Foodmatters uses cashew paste to thicken the curry instead. Eureka!
