Call it inspiration or divine intervention, when the chance came to revisit their concept in the West, The Black Hole Group didn’t need to dig too deep and discover their inkling for Greek food.
The concept of a family affair, the notion of a healthy diet, and most importantly the taste. The blends of peppers, citruses, oils, cheeses, and grilled meat orchestrate in tandem to set the taste apart from other cuisines.
Oh, and dipping the pita with that olive oil. It’s like the grace of the gods.
Don’t fret though, they’ve still got Greek-inspired burgers, pasta and pizzas too. So join them at Éla, an experience in the West like no other.
An establishment steeped in culinary history, the 1-Group introduces Zorba, The Greek Taverna – a unique Greek experience that brings authentic dishes with age-old traditions from the azure Mediterranean Sea to sunny Singapore. Sitting along the waterfront of the Singapore River in Clarke Quay, Zorba aims to transport guests to a Greek isle with nourishing simplicity set along the picturesque riverbank.
Taking pride in their culinary traditions, Zorba presents a selection of crowd-pleasing dishes from appetisers, pristine seafood and meats, and tempting desserts. Rooted in Greek heritage and culture, Zorba sources its traditional ingredients direct from Greek suppliers.
A signature option at Zorba is the extensive selection of Greek’s Mixed Grill Platter ($88). This hearty sharing platter includes cheese-stuffed bifteki, pork gyros, chicken and beef souvlaki, lamb chops and Loukaniko. Perfect for sharing with friends and family of two to three, this platter, and served with a side of fried potatoes, salad, and tzatziki. Another substantial dish is the classic grilled platter of Souvlaki ($20) that showcases juicy grilled meat skewers served with chips and tzatziki salad. Zorba's version features the traditional Greek selection; Argentinean air-flown Black Angus striploin, Iberico pork, and Brazilian chicken breast. The meats are marinated for 48 hours in a proprietary blend of spices before being grilled to perfection, making for a full-flavoured and tender bite.
An all-time favourite, the Htapothi Sti Skhara ($30) features a heritage recipe from the isles of Greece. The octopus is first tenderised by hand as the chef beats it with a smooth rock, after which it is sprinkled with salt water and rubbed with the same rock in a circular motion until the tentacles curl up. The octopus is then slow grilled atop a low-burning charcoal fire with sea-salt and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice, for a delicate smoky char.
Other noteworthy grilled items include Tsipoura ($32), which utilises sea bream flown in from Greece. The ancient Greeks held the sea bream or 'Orata' (Italian for 'golden') in high regard due to the golden flecks in its eyes, and it was frequently offered to the goddess Aphrodite for its attractiveness and meaty flesh. Keeping the seasoning light and clean, the fish is drizzled with lemon, garlic and olive oil and grilled on a plancha for a meal worthy of a deity.
Aside from pristine seafood and quality cuts of meat, the Greeks are equally known for their saccharine desserts. Fit for any sweet-tooth, Greek Baklava ($12) presents a rich sweet flaky pastry made of layers of filo filled with chopped nuts and held together with honey. Another dessert staple includes Yiaourti Me Meli ($8) - Greek yoghurt with lashes of honey and crunchy walnuts.
Along with the great tasting food, Zorba also serves Katogi Averoff wines from Metsovo by the bottle to further enhance the Mediterranean experience.

“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.

Located at Boat Quay and tastefully decorated with an original Taverna theme, Gyromania welcomes everybody for a sensational and palatable journey of Authentic Greek Cuisine.
Originally the Gyro consisted of various cuts of meat (primarily lamb & pork, sometimes boneless chicken and beef) skewered on horizontal rotisseries. One of the reasons this Greek version of fast food was so popular is because the freshness - as patrons ordered the Gyro, the new layer began to cook from the rotisserie effect. So each order was fresh and the meat did not begin to cook until the next order was peeled from the cone of meat. Souvlaki has become one of the more popular fast foods in Europe and is now becoming popular in Singapore.
Alati, or salt from the ancient Greek word ἅλας, takes great pride in serving only the freshest produce wild-caught by the hands of the fishermen at the Aegean Sea.

Built on the same promise as FIX Cafe, FIX Grill offers “Original Handmade Goods” of the edible kind and sets itself apart with a few choice touches.
The kitchen’s attention to detail can be seen in its range of creative appetisers, each component carefully put together to achieve a harmony of flavours in each dish. One such appetiser is the Watermelon and Prawn Salad.
