Another vegan restaurant has landed on the Singapore food scene, and I am so happy! Hrvst by Kilter Avenue is an in-house vegan restaurant and bar that serve a full menu of vegan starters, mains and bar snacks within Kilter Avenue —a boutique movement studio, specialising in bodyweight calisthenic training. They are located on the 5th floor of OUE Downtown Gallery along Shenton Way in the Tanjong Pagar area.

HRVST’s philosophy is to make the alternative commonplace, to change perceptions, to provoke thought and deliver impact.

Partner & head chefs, Addis Tan and Dylan Choong

HRVST is helmed by partnered head chefs, Addis Tan and Dylan Choong, who have between them close to 20 years of experience of working in many kitchens, most recently in Tippling Club, Esquina, and Cheek by Jowl.
Over the years, they have explored with different types of cuisines, always looking for new inspiration and motivation to continue on their chef journey. Living a life of work and pleasure centred around food, two things have always bothered them.

First, the superior image of meat dishes over vegetarian ones, and the inability of a kitchen to produce food as equally stunning as a meat dish when a vegetarian request is put through. Second, that a vegan always has difficulty introducing or being proud of his or her choice of cuisine; that they are unable to bring their meat-eating friends and family to a vegan restaurant and blow their minds away.

Most vegans and vegetarians will attest that eating out can be a challenge as your choices are limited. Addis and Dylan decided to reverse the social stigma of being a vegan by focusing on making vegan food cool, good-looking, and great tasting. As a vegetarian/vegan myself, I felt so loved eating at HRVST, because everything on the menu was made with “us” in mind.

I also really liked the atmosphere. Being on the 5th floor of OUE Downtown, with both an indoor and outdoor area, is an escape within the CBD. Adding to its appeal, HRVST partnered up with Edible Gardens to grow herbs and food right outside the restaurant.

I’m looking forward to bringing my friends and family here, to show them that being vegan is not a sacrifice.
