Count the memories, not the calories sounds catchy, but this mantra can get hard to live by when trying to stay healthy.  

So enter the grand plan of monitoring your calorie intake, which can be a tedious process. But hey, there’s no need to painfully estimate how many calories there are in each and every dish when they’re already printed on the menu for you! Here are 6 restaurants in Singapore with calorie-count inclusive menus: 

 

1. YOLO Food

There are two kinds of extreme eaters in the world - those who binge on junk food all day as if there’s no tomorrow, and the fitspos who fuel themselves up with the healthiest foods they can find. If you’re leaning towards the latter, we say go for YOLO Food.

If you’re new to calorie counting, let YOLO Food do the homework for you. Based on your recommended calorie intake (calculated using your age, height, weight, gender, and active level) the good folks here can also recommend suitable meal combos for you. 

There’s also the option to create your own meal. Pick your preferred choice of protein, sides, topping and sauce -  the calorie count for each individual ingredient is given! For instance, sides like Peranakan Veggie Curry and Quinoa are both 180 kcal each, and proteins like Teriyaki Chicken and Herb Chicken are 230 kcal.

2. Sushi Burrito

Sushi’s great, and so are burritos. Put these two food concepts together and ta da, we get Sushi Burrito. And while a burrito-sized sushi means it’s packed with more yummy fillings, you don’t have to feel guilty about eating it. Using only fresh vegetables and unprocessed meat, these supersized sushi rolls make a novel, healthy treat.

Tip: Have your sushi burritos even healthier than they are by asking for less sauce. This will reduce your order by 10-48 kcal, depending on your order.

One of their top picks is the Crabby Crunch Sushi Burrito ($7.50/half roll), which has 280 kcal and comes packed with soft shell crab, naruto maki, and avocado. 

Besides sushi burritos, they also offer Japanese salads such as Salmon Sashimi Salad (250 kcal, $7.90) and ramen like The Volcano Ramen - piping hot noodles topped with a spicy minced meat mix (297 kcal, $8.90).

With all things Korean being the craze these days, it’s no wonder that Korean food has also been the centre of attention. But don’t mistake DoSiRak as just another fad - this Korean eatery gives the classic bibimbap a twist with its shaker-style meals. The best part? All their meals are under 500 calories.

It's choices aplenty at DoSiRak, and whatever you'd like to include in your bibimbap mix is up to you. Here are some of our favourites:

  • Vegetarians: Avocado and Sweet Potato, Pumpkin Tofu
  • Pescararians: Seared Tuna and Cured Salmon
  • Meat-lovers: Beef Bulgogi, Spicy Chicken

They’ve also got a wide selection of sides ranging from kimchi and edamame to bean sprouts and chickpea. If you’re overwhelmed by choices and just can’t decide, there’s a “let Omma (mother) decide” option. This will allow the chefs to recommend sides based on your selected main.

With each bibimbap totalling to less than 500 calories, you can go ahead and top off your dish with a satisfying onsen egg or extra beef bulgogi, guilt free! Aside from using the freshest ingredients, DoSiRak's sauces and kimchi are all made in-house too.

Office workers hustling hard in the CBD, your lunch break is a good time to keep your bodies strong and healthy by having a well-deserved rest, and by replenishing your energy with guilt-free food at Wheat Baumkuchen.  

Their popular dishes include the Shredded Chicken Breast Soba ($8, 456 kcal) and the crowd-favourite Grilled Salmon Soba ($10, 492 kcal). Aside from soba, you can also choose to have your dish with brown rice - a healthier alternative to white rice. PM Lee approves

But if the chewy texture of brown rice doesn’t suit your taste buds, Wheat Baumkuchen has recently started serving Bhutan Red Rice, which has softer grains and contains 10 times more antioxidants than brown rice.
