Supergreek @ Raffles City - Singapore's First Greek Fast-Casual Concept


Have a taste of Greek flavours and traditions at Supergreek. Nothing fancy but wholesome souvlaki grain bowls, pita wraps, and salads loaded with ingredients and dips freshly made daily such as traditional Greek hummus, yoghurt avocado sauce and even Harissa. And speaking of yoghurt, Supergreek serves its proprietary homemade authentic Greek yoghurt, made daily through a process that spans 30 hours. Souvlaki is the highlight of Supergreek’s menu offerings. An everyday Greek street food of small pieces of meat or vegetables grilled on a skewer, Supergreek dresses it up with herbs such as oregano and dill, as well as tomatoes, onions and Greek vinaigrette, then grilled, roasted, or steamed, but never fried. Conceptualised by the team behind Omakase Burger and Picnic Food Park, the chef imparting his knowledge and culture into the food is Head Chef Altin “Alex” Mata, an Albanian immigrant who ran his own Greek restaurants in Athens, Greece for 20 years.

Lamb Kebab 4.2/5

The meat that best represents the concept is this Lamb Kebab ($10.90). I'm definitely not a red red-meat person, but the combination of the souvlaki of minced lamb kebab, the zesty house-made hummus and the spicy-sweet harrisa did get me thinking about it for a couple of days. The souvlaki of minced lamb was well-seasoned with spices and herbs, and I was surprised by how juicy it was when I took my first bite. The harrissa sauce spread on the pita was punchy and bright, with just a hint of heat. Another key element is the specially imported Greek pita bread - soft with a very toasty aroma. To balance the richness of the meat, the accompanying ingredients are basmati rice, grilled zucchini and eggplant, purple and white cabbage, cherry tomatoes and onions, with a little drizzle of orange vinaigrette.

Fresh Seafood Roasted Barramundi 4.2/5

With eight types of souvlaki grain bowls, you can choose to enjoy these combinations within a traditional pita, or in a hearty salad. We had Roasted Barramundi ($12.90) as a salad, which seemed to be one of the most popular picks. Within the bowl are a dill-marinated Barramundi fillet, quinoa, mixed salad, arugula, mashed potato, roasted broccoli and cauliflower, onions, cherry tomatoes and Greek vinaigrette. The Barramundi fillet was very tender and moist, and the mashed potato was a texture boost to the salad. And I think what makes this salad so appealing to our appetite is the creamy homemade Parmigiano sauce that binds the ingredients together.

Grilled Steak 3/5

Grilled Steak ($13.90) uses a premium USDA choice roast beef, paired with house-made Tzatziki and hummus, and served with brown rice, arugula, lettuce, roasted broccoli and sweet potatoes with a sprinkle of sunflower seeds. Using its housemade yoghurt as the base, the Tzatziki was refreshing with bits of pickled cucumber, and its creaminess goes well with the beef. The steak was a bit tough to chew though, which is a pity.

Grilled Chicken Steak 4/5

Grilled Chicken Steak ($9.90) salad gets a lot more exciting when you have a dollop of creamy Greek yoghurt avocado sauce and zingy hummus to go with. Grilling the chicken breast accentuates its herbs marination along and releases a hint of smoky flavour, which complement the smoky-sweet grilled capsicum and roasted pumpkin.

The Roasted Vegan 3.8/5

For a 100% Plant-Based meal, the Roasted Vegan ($7.90) hydrates your body with a myriad of crunchy vegetables - cured beetroot, purple and white cabbage, roasted broccoli and cauliflower, corn, cucumber, onions, cherry tomatoes and quinoa, bind together with a dollop of creamy house-made hummus and roasty mango capsicum sauce. A dash of orange vinaigrette at the end makes it even more refreshing.

Greek Classic 4/5

Not just as a base for its sauce, the triple-strained greek yoghurt has a texture almost like dry ricotta cheese, rich and creamy, making it a very suitable choice for a healthy snack or dessert. To appreciate it's natural milky taste of the yoghurt, go for the Greek Classic ($4.90), fresh Greek yoghurt topped with the classic pairing of honey and walnuts.


Each souvlaki grain bowl is scrumptious in its own right, and what stands out is really its kebab!
