Verde Kitchen Supports ‘Pick the Right Catch’ Sustainable Seafood Movement
Special dishes created in support of World Oceans Day on June 8
SINGAPORE - With more than 80 percent of the world’s marine fish stocks either fully exploited or overfishedi, Verde Kitchen will be dedicating a special “Pick the Right Catch” theme with seasonal highlight menu items for diners from 1 June to 30 September 2019 that support the sustainable seafood movement. In addition to raising awareness on sustainable seafood dining, the seasonal menu also serves to support World Oceans Day on June 8, which invites people around the world to celebrate and honour the ocean.
Staying true to Verde Kitchen’s mantra of presenting “real food, full of natural flavours,” diners can expect a wholesome lunch that is big on flavours, nourishing for the body and sustainable for the ocean. Currently, 60 percent of seafood served on Verde Kitchen’s menu carries the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) or Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC) eco-labels, ensuring the seafood sources are either sustainably caught or responsibly farmed, respectively.
The special “Pick the Right Catch” creations include:
- Sesame-crusted seared MSC-certified U.S. scallops with asparagus, snow peas, watercress and miso dressing
- Grilled MSC-certified fish fillet served with grapefruit, orange and shaved fennel citrus salad drizzled with smoked olive oil
- Almond-crusted ASC-certified salmon with arugula, feta cheese and green pea mash with coconut oil dressing
- MSC-certified nonya-style New Zealand rockling fish with spicy sour tomato and pineapply gravy, organic okra and brown rice
Other new and signature must-try menu highlights include:
- Locally farmed vegetable lasagne
- 200 gram grass-fed lean beef fillet with baked baby potatoes, watercress, asparagus, highland tomatoes and pepper relish
- Vietnamese pho with grass-fed beef fillet and rice noodles with Asian herbs and spices
- Superfood organic spinach and quinoa salad with green apple, pumpkin seed and pomegranate
Verde Kitchen, the cozy 32-seater located at level two of Hilton Singapore is the perfect restaurant for great tasting healthy lunches, with the menu spotlighting on the restaurant’s commitment to serve wholesome dishes including gluten-free, dairy-free, vegetarian and raw food options. In addition, 98 percent of the menu items are made from scratch in-house daily, and 60 percent of seafood served are from sustainable seafood sources. These sustainably sourced ingredients and menu items support Hilton’s Travel with Purpose goal to cut the company’s environmental footprint in half and double its investment in social impact by 2030.
