A FOOD REBELLION
Meet Food Rebel founder, Elika Tasker - In charge of improving your health!
After achieving a degree in business, Elika started her career in the world of corporate HR consulting, hiring for multinational corporations. As a result of nearly 10 years working long, unrelenting hours, she soon found that her health had started to deteriorate. Coupled with years of yo-yo dieting and a lack of nutritional support available, this frustration led Elika to look for her own answers to her health issues.
Elika studied with the Institute of Integrative Nutrition where she trained as a Health Coach. Helping busy corporates achieve lifestyle changes to improve their health through fitness and nutrition, has been a key passion and she set up her private health coaching business, ElikaFit in order to achieve this.
Working around Raffles Place for nearly 4 years Elika found herself increasingly frustrated with the lack of healthy options in Singapore that provided ‘real food’, which weren't highly processed, that contained quality ingredients and had no hidden sugar, preservatives or chemicals. When her clients started to voice similar concerns, she saw a need for a café in the CBD which could provide clean eating options for all.
Kitchen by Food Rebel was founded in January 2016 in the heart of Singapore CBD at Telok Ayer and is jointly owned by Elika & Rick Mather. With a mission to improve their customers’ health through a recipe of awareness, education and great, wholesome food, the 40-seater cafe caters for vegans, vegetarians, athletes, clean-meat lovers, food intolerances and those just looking to lead a more healthy lifestyle. Loving the culinary scene and cultural melting pot in Singapore and the region has inspired Elika to create unique fusion dishes.
Elika also provides healthy and raw cooking classes onsite at the Kitchen, including the popular Raw Desserts workshop, and works with a number of local start-ups and suppliers to source quality fresh ingredients and organic produce that can be used in-house to make fresh meals daily. By cooking meals onsite from scratch, including sauces and salad dressings, Food Rebel provides customers with a menu of ingredients they can trust as part of their healthy lifestyle.
In addition to being a café, Kitchen by Food Rebel provides home delivery through Deliveroo & Uber Eats, corporate catering through their own online platform, and has partnerships with Personal Training facility, Ultimate Performance.
