Best Salads in Singapore

For those looking to keep to your #eatclean routine, we know how tough it can be in Singapore, considering the amount of good food we're surrounded by. However, these salads have proven to be tasty, quick, healthy lunch fixes that won't leave you too stuffed to function. Here are our best salad picks to try!

For Massive Portions of Salads

What started out as a single takeaway stall in the basement of Chevron House is now a chain salad stop for office workers in the CBD, with two other outlets in Republic Plaza and The Sail. The Chevron House outlet remains the same as we remembered it to be, with its signature crispy skin Salmon (add $2) as its best-selling protein, while Republic Plaza dishes out more Asian-influenced items like Sukiyaki Beef (add $1.50), Peppered Smoked Duck (add $1.50) and the well-marinated Lemongrass Chicken Thigh. We are told by the staff that the salad offerings at The Sail is similar to the one at Chevron House. Each box comes with one carb, three toppings, one dressing and your choice of protein ($9.90 for one protein, $12.90 for two, $15.90 for three). We like how crazy hearty the salads are, and appreciate that they offer more unique bases like Barley Rice and Sweet Potatoes. Portions are generous, prices are reasonable and the quality is consistently good, making this a go-to spot for fitspos in the area. Pro tip: Consider sharing a medium-sized salad with a colleague, or save half for dinner!

For Protein-Rich Salads in a Food Court

Wafuken is one of the many stalls located in the sprawling food court at Asia Square, but is easily spotted with its long, snaking queue at lunch. Thankfully, orders move along quickly, kudos to their well-trained and efficient team. Start your salad selection with the most important ingredient — the protein! There are six to choose from (from $4), including Flank Steak ($7 half portion), Wagyu Rump ($20 half steak) and the perfectly sous vide Salmon ($10). It's nice to know that Wafuken offers half portions for some of the proteins — perfect for smaller eaters. If you're keeping to your #eatclean routine, skip the carbs ($2 each) and opt for the sides instead — it's where you'll find your greens. We enjoyed the Wafu Salad ($2), Grilled Asparagus ($2.50) and the Spicy Bean Sprouts ($1.50) best. The salads are generally tasty on their own, but if you need more flavour, opt for the garlic soy or the ponzu pink peppercorn sauce.

For Salads under $10

Previously a nitro ice cream shop, Ice Queen has taken desserts off the menu and now focuses solely on salads. The strictly takeaway outlet is located in the basement of One Raffles Place, and is an attractive alternative to The Daily Cut for those working in the area, considering they offer equally well-cooked proteins at a more affordable price. A small DIY Salad ($8.90) comes with one main, one side and two toppings — enough to leave your tummy feeling satisfied without warranting a food coma at the office. Go for the more interesting mains like the Mushroom Whiffle, an egg white waffle with spinach, mushrooms and cheese, or the Cauliflower Rice. Of all the proteins offered, the tender Salmon Fillet, the incredibly tasty Ribeye Steak (add $1) and the Truffle Scrambled Eggs impressed us most. Pro tip: Complete your meal with a cup of Thai Milk Tea at just $1.50!

For Super Fresh DIY Salads

The key thing that takes a salad from good to amazing is the quality and freshness of the produce. As the office crowds that flock here daily will testify, this riverfront joint preps every single one of its ingredients really well, offering a foolproof blueprint for DIY salads. Unlike many salad joints that charge extra, The Salad Shop offers a baby spinach base at no extra cost. With your preferred salad base and six toppings (our favourite are the beetroot and seeds), the basic Rabbit Size ($8) is more than enough for modest appetites. For something more substantial, choose to add on a protein option ($3) — these include baked falafel, roasted striploin beef and smoked duck, among many other perfectly cooked choices. Trust us, this will keep you satiated till dinner time.

For All Things Guacamole

Opened by two avocado lovers excited to spread their love for guacamole, this hidden gem in Maxwell Chambers is where you should go to when the guac craving strikes. Order their best-selling Guacamonster 2.0 ($15), which sees a double serving of Guac & Go's smooth, creamy guacamole paired with chicken over a bed of greens and a colourful spread of tomato salsa, sweet potato, quinoa, tofu and lentils. For something even more substantial, there are grain bowls (from $12) and sandwiches (from $12). Wash it all down with a cup of coffee (from $4), made with beans from Common Man Coffee Roasters. Pro tip: Look out for new offerings on their changing seasonal menu!

For Seriously Underrated Salads

If it's noon and you're in Raffles Place, head to this air-conditioned space for a delicious salad. Located right at the exit of Raffles Place MRT Station, Bottles and Bones is both a sit-down restaurant and a grab-and-go spot that offers reasonably-priced salads. There is only one size available here ($14.90), which includes one main, one side, three toppings and a dressing. Prices are nett, proteins are unbelievably tasty and portions are generous, which explains why they usually sell out by 1pm. Go for their signature Crispy Pork Belly as your main (additional mains cost $2) with its very audible crackling skin and opt for the onsen egg, pickled carrots and the forest mushrooms as your toppings. Treat yourself to an additional topping ($1) and get the much raved about Truffle Crumble that adds just the right amount of crunch and flavour in your salad! Of the nine dressings available, standouts include the unique truffle and yuzu aioli, the flavourful baby spinach pesto and the creamy Cajun spiced mayo.

For Reliable Salads in Town

Located in the basement of ION Orchard, this perpetually buzzy salad stop by Cedele is a convenient spot for getting your daily greens intake. Toss & Turn operates from 10am to 10pm, which means you can have a healthy meal at anytime of the day. Apart from salads (from $10.50), they also serve sandwiches (from $7.80) and soups (from $6). There are five pre-selected Signature Salads including the refreshing Tropical Chicken ($11) that comes with bite-sized chunks of pineapples, and the crowd favourite Teriyaki Chicken Noodle ($11.50). Otherwise, follow Burpple Tastemaker Sheryl Lyx's lead and customise your salad bowl. Regular (from $10.50) gets you a salad base, two proteins and four veggies, while Hot Main (from $12.80) subs out one of two proteins for a hot protein like Tomato Italian Meatballs or Pork Carnitas. Tastemaker Sheryl recommends having the corn, tofu, egg plant and egg as your veggies with the yummiest pomegranate dressing! Pro tip: Submit an order online before you swing by for pick-up, you can be in and out of there in a jiffy.

For Mexican-Inspired Salads

Hidden within the OUE Link walkway closer to the Fullerton exit, you'll find a buzzy salad stop turning out hearty bowls of Mexican-inspired salads. The hole-in-the-wall shop has a row of counter seats for dining in, but most prefer to takeaway (at no extra cost) instead. There are three sizes available — Petite ($8.90) comes with one protein, Standard ($11.90) with two and Wholesome ($17.90) with three proteins, guacamole, chia seeds and chips. Each bowl comes with a base (cilantro red rice, sesame pasta or lettuce), five fixed toppings (salsa, grilled peppers, black beans, fresh corn and grated cheese) and a choice of sauce. Zoom in on the flavourful Pulled Pork and the spicy Chilli Beef as your proteins and skip the sauces — the salads are tasty on their own. Unless you're getting the Wholesome which comes loaded with not one, but two scoops of guacamole, you must add on their super smooth and creamy Signature Guacamole ($2) to complete your salad. Pro tip: Swing by during off peak hours (10.30am-11.55am, 3.30pm-5.30pm) and enjoy $1 off all bowls and burritos!

For Hearty Protein-Rich Salads

The Daily Cut has developed a bit of a cult status among fitness and clean-eating enthusiasts, who frequent the joint for the protein-rich salads. The proteins here are laudable and generously portioned, of which the salmon (additional $2, goes really well with the ginger ponzu sauce) and rib-eye steak (additional $1) are standouts. We like that there are non-leafy options for the base, including sweet potato, wholewheat pasta and brown rice — perfect on days you're craving something more substantial. The salads are available in four sizes: Petite ($9), Regular ($12), Large ($15) and X-Large ($18); the latter allows you three portions of protein! Either the Petite, which comes with half a portion of protein, or the Regular, which comes with a full portion, should satisfy moderate appetites. There are currently three outlets, the latest being this one at Tanjong Pagar Centre (near the MRT station control). Pro-tip: Queues in the CBD can get crazy at mealtimes, so visit for a late lunch after 1pm, or an early dinner before 7pm.

For Asian-Inspired DIY Salad Bowls

This salad chain (they have five outlets in the CBD and city area) is a reliable option when you're attempting to #eatclean. While the other four outlets at Asia Square, One Raffles Place, International Plaza and Raffles City focuses on soba, the one at Republic Plaza dishes out hearty rice bowls alongside DIY salads. Instead of paying a fixed amount and choosing the items to go into your salad, Wheat charges according to the ingredients picked, so you can exercise more flexibility in customising your salad while keeping to your budget. Baby Spinach ($3) and Chopped Broccoli and Cauliflower ($2) are great as bases and go well with the tender Ribeye ($8) and the Chinese-style, soy sauce infused Char Siew Pork Belly ($5) respectively. As for sides, we enjoyed the Pickled Beansprouts ($1), Baby Young Corn ($1.50) and Grilled Pumpkin ($1.50). There are only two dressings available — wafu and aojiso, a perilla leaf soy sauce dressing. If you're rushing for time, there are six pre-selected bowls (from $10) to choose from, including the Sashimi Rice Bowl ($16.90) and the indulgent Beef and Foie Gras Rice Bowl ($18.90).

For Tasty Green Salads in Telok Ayer

Retaining the original Telok Ayer Chung Hwa Free Clinic store front, this industrial-chic cafe along Telok Ayer dishes out huge, tasty salads. It can get pretty packed during lunch hour, so swing by early with your colleagues to snag a table indoors, or be prepared to brave the heat outdoors. Of the many salads offered here, the My Awesome Salad ($17) is certainly the crowd-pleaser. Featuring smoked salmon, chicken breast, tomato, half an avocado and yummy duck rillette, we couldn't get enough of this. All their salads come with a basil pesto spread on a piece of toast, and a huge bed of mesclun leaves. If you're looking for something more unique, opt for the Perigourdines Salad ($21) that combines really flavourful duck gizzards, smoked duck breast, duck rillettes on toast and walnuts. Pro tip: My Awesome Cafe is also open on the weekends, from 9.30am-12am!

For Healthy Eats along Duxton Road

Located along Duxton Road, this beautiful space is great for catching up with your girlfriends over healthy eats. Get your green game on with the crowd-pleasing Truffled Portobello Salad ($15.90). The vegetarian salad sees slices of well-marinated, grilled portobello mushrooms, cherry tomatoes and Japanese cucumbers on a leafy bed of baby spinach. The bed of greens is tossed in a honey lemon dijon dressing and finished off with a drizzle of truffle oil. Portions are big and great for sharing amongst two small eaters. Apart from Salads (from $11.90), there are hearty Grain Bowls (from $16.90) and an option of customising your own salad (from $16). Pro tip: Sprout Salad Bar also serves good Coffee (from $3.50) and has multiple power points available, making it a conducive space for getting work done in the Duxton area.
