In a culi­nary land­scape teem­ing with hip new eater­ies boast­ing terms like “green,” “sus­tain­able” and “or­ganic,” we were cu­ri­ous. With its prom­ise of al­lor­ganic food at af­ford­able price points, where will new She­ung Wan post-gym grab-n-go counter Su­pafood land on the spec­trum be­tween au­then­tic and trendy?

HIT The or­ganic Aussie grass-fed beef brisket curry ($58 small/$68 large) was a rain­bow of pur­ple cab­bage slaw, sautéed spinach, sesame-sprin­kled rice and ten­der chunks of mar­i­nated curry beef. It was fla­vor­ful and the beef suc­cu­lent— al­though the rice did take up half the box. The or­ganic US pas­ture-raised pulled pork with ap­ple sand­wich ($58) was pure unadul­ter­ated pro­tein, with a size­able heap of per­fectly sea­soned pork top­ping a plain roll. We wouldn’t rec­om­mend this one for the health nuts, how­ever, un­less the grease that soaked through the bread was hid­ing some omega-3 fatty acids.

MISS The baked sus­tain­able At­lantic hal­ibut salad ($98 small/$108 large) was more sweet than sa­vory, with pumpkin, pumpkin seeds, ap­ples, red onion, cherry toma­toes and cous cous, topped with a lack­lus­ter av­o­cado yo­gurt and pre­cious few bites of hal­ibut hid­ing in the cor­ner. De­pend­ing on your me­tab­o­lism, this pricey salad might last you a work­out but it def­i­nitely won’t last you un­til din­ner. Our “Bery Happy” smoothie ($68) had a lot more banana than berry.

BOT­TOM LINE Some dishes de­liver more filler than sub­stance, but Su­pafood is sure to please the sus­tain­ably minded crowd.
