Healthy Lunchboxes: Right on Wellington Street, you might mistake Fete Up for some kind of Japanese cafe. Fete Up offers balanced lunchbox options with an Asian spin on healthy food. Founded by Singaporean couple Wei Kwan Chan and Janet Tsang along with executive chef William Tew, the food here is no average local takeaway.

Look & Feel: The warmly lit wooden and spacious interiors of the small shop makes it welcoming and puts the food into the focus at the takeout counter.

On the Menu: For a price of $78, you can build-your-own lunchbox with a carbohydrate base, one protein, one warm and two cold vegetable sides, plus garnish. On a normal day, you’ll find three to four kinds of each option, notably brown rice with quinoa and oolong tea rice, Hungarian beef goulash and Thai Pad Kra Pow (minced pork with herbs), roasted Sichuan cauliflower and okra with Goma sauce. You can add $10 for a cup of house-made lemongrass Earl Grey tea too.

Meet the Chef: A friend of founder Wei Kan, William Tew has been serving diners in Michelin-starred kitchens in Paris and Singapore, as well as at Hong Kong’s Quantas First Class and Business Class Lounge, before showing off his skills at Fete Up.

Jeng: It is a quick, delicious and guiltless option that would benefit office workers and gym go-ers in the area. Though not a place for salads with no dressing, Fete Up is a wonderful and flavorful gateway to healthier eating.

Not So Jeng: There is only a handful of seats in the space, so best for al-desko lunches and home dinners. It is only open for lunch and dinner now, but we are looking forward to breakfast offerings one day.

Great For: Quick lunch, post-gym treat, office lunch, takeaway.

Service: Helpful and welcoming. If you stick around long enough you might get treated to a free glass of tea!

FYI: They only accept electronic payments, so make sure you bring along your credit card or have your mobile payments sorted.
