If one craves for seafood, the best place to go to would be Mezza9 at the Hyatt, it is located in 10 Scotts Road, Singapore, 228211. It is a buffet that caters to brunch (a mix of breakfast and lunch). Their seafood is freshly served and sustainable. Why this restaurant? This is a restaurant that operates with a sustainable source of seafood, this means that the kind of fish that they serve will still be available in the future. Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) has started working with the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) in Singapore and several great restaurants are partnering with WWF and MSC to showcase the fact that a restaurant can source for sustainable and quality fish that is affordable. This raises the awareness of problems that will arise when fishing in our own region.
For those that wants organic food, Café Salivation is a great place to have coffee. It was the first western vegetarian café in Little India opened in 2008. How it is eco-friendly is that it uses only sunflower oil and olive oil for cooking. The desserts served contains no egg and they serve Colombian coffee. The café encourages and educate people on eating vegetarian food because it is healthy. Living a healthy life is very good because the more healthy a person is, the lesser the prone to diseases they will be. This café does not use Monosodium Glutamate (MSG) at all, which is great because people who intake too much MSG will tend to have numbness at the back of the neck and arms, weakness and heart palpitations.
Breakthrough Cafe is a great social enterprise cafe to eat in. What is so great about this cafe is that the owner of the cafe, Freddy Wee, used to be a drug addict and had spent alot of time in and out of rehab and prison in the 1970s. By going to this cafe and supporting them, it is helping all the workers, mostly ex-drug addicts, to reintegrate back into society where they are given a second chance in life. It is located in People’s Park Centre, 101A Upper Cross Street. Perhaps some former convicts may never feel the same because people will judge them once they know about their history with all the offences but these former drug addicts are given a place here in the cafe where they can work.
