A trailblazing takeaway concept by the dynamic team behind Omakase Burger and Picnic Food Park, Supergreek at Raffles City is a fast-casual eatery that aims to deliver the goodness and wholesome qualities of vibrant and delicious Greek cuisine in an affordable and accessible selection of thoughtfully- curated souvlaki grain bowls, pita wraps, and salads, designed for the modern palate and lifestyle.
Supergreek is also proud to make and serve its proprietary homemade authentic Greek yoghurt – possibly the first in Singapore, made daily through a process that spans 30 hours!
“Supergreek aims to obliterate the misconception that healthy, nutritious food is not just tasty, but incredibly tasty. Our goal is to provide nutrition-dense food that tastes so good that you will want to have it over and over again – three, four, maybe five times a week,” shares Cheng Hsin Yao, owner and founder of Supergreek.
With eight nourishing souvlaki grain bowls, customers can choose to enjoy these combinations within a traditional pita, or in a hearty salad. All grain bowls, salads and toasty pita wraps are assembled à la minute for maximum freshness.
Souvlaki (souv·la·ki·a) – the popular Greek street food of small pieces of meat or vegetables grilled on a skewer, is the highlight of Supergreek’s menu offerings. Supergreek’s modern spin on this Greek specialty consists of tender cuts of meat, fish and vegetarian options accentuated with quintessential herbs such as oregano and dill, as well as tomatoes, onions and Greek vinaigrette, then grilled, roasted, or steamed, but never fried.
“At Supergreek, we follow traditional Greek cuisine which is predominantly plant-based, and focused on lean meats, seafood and heart-healthy olive oil that is also fresh. Whether your diet is plant-based, keto, low carb, pescatarian, high-protein, or if you are just curious about eating better, we have some amazing options for you that will help you in your search for the holy grail of sustainable healthy eating: nutritious, delicious, affordable and repeatable.” Hsin Yao elaborates.
