Cuisine: Healthy food

Vibe: This is a tiny, simple space. The minimalist décor and open kitchen reflects the transparent attitude to fresh ingredients and wholesome living that Supafood is all about.

Who to bring: Gym bunnies and people who love to eat clean are an obvious choice. But it would be equally fun to bring that one friend who insists that salads can’t possibly taste good, as this is the perfect place to prove them wrong.

What’s hot: The organic, apple roasted, pulled pork salad turns the notion that salads are boring and bland on its head. Consisting of organic kale, cherry tomato, pomegranate, pumpkin, chia seeds, feta and quinoa mix with apple cider vinaigrette dressing, it’s full, flavourful, and varied. There is a generous serving of pork, and the pomegranate adds a welcome burst of freshness to the dish. The dressing is not too acidic and all of the extras like chia seeds and feta make you feel like you’re getting value for money. Although we opted for large, the smaller size would probably have been enough.

What’s not: There are only a few bar stools, and it’s clear that this place was designed as a lunchtime takeaway option for the hordes of Central and Sheung Wan office workers, but it would be great if they could extend their offerings and opening hours to cater to more people. As they are only open from noon-8.30pm, and closed on Sundays, it feels like they are deliberately ignoring anyone who can’t come at lunch time on a week day.

The organic curry of Aussie grass fed beef and rice was also just average – the vegetables on the side were the real highlight of the dish as the beef was quite fatty.

Cost: Supa Salad Bowls cost from HK$118-HK$138. Supa Rice Boxes are HK$88 to HK$98. Organic snacks cost from HK$18 to HK$48. Sides cost HK$18. Juices and smoothies cost HK$48-HK$68.
