Standard Order Always go to the Kilo in Bali, so naturally had to try the one in Singapore. This is my standard order and the EbIKO pasta + tuna tartare. That’s all you really need! You’re welcome

Cream of Ebiko Pasta: a favourite since Kilo’s days at Kallang. It’s hard not to love a simple, well-executed cream-based pasta sauce that’s as rich in flavour as it is light on the palate. It’s thick enough to thoroughly coat each strand of pasta, yet light enough to be a great canvas for the smoky garlic grilled prawns tossed in, as well as the generous heaps of sweet, briny ebiko. Tbh I found the sauce a wee too salty that night, but I’m guessing it’s a one-off cause the seasoning’s usually pretty much spot on.

Three words: so fucking delicious. I’ve been hoping to try this Numbing Burrata ($25) for so long, you’d notice I couldn’t resist slicing into it even before I got my shot. This dish is such an absolute stroke of genius, why hasn’t anyone done this before? You’ve got a big ball of creamy, luscious, cold burrata sitting on a bed of their housemade mala oil that, imma be honest, really champions that numbing peppercorn element without branding your tongue with a poker iron. And then there’s the refreshing cubes of cucumber and crunchy, buttery croutons as a canvas to mop everything up. I loved that I could actually taste all the different flavours on the plate and that, regardless of how vastly distinct they are, everything came together seamlessly.

White Pita ($5 For 6), Whole Wheat Pita ($6 For 6), Flavoured Pitas ($2.2 Each) The perfect excuse to get these freshly baked pitas is when you travel to North Bridge Road for a bread and cake run at Mother Dough and Edith patisserie during the circuit breaker period. I mean why not stock up on bread since the family is perpetually at home? Another good excuse for Mum to put her cooking creativity to the test by whipping up great pita dishes. The plain and whole wheat pitas here are affordable and easily one of my favourite staples around.

Free Filling Pita Bread Nice, kinda filling filled with meatballs, vegetables and sauces. The meatballs are salty and the vegetables and sauces give a refreshing and sour taste to it. The bread itself has no taste and together w the ingredients, they complement each other. Do bring your own water though, we were really thirsty after eating it.

Fill Free ($9) A falafel pita which brought me straight back to Israel. They really nailed it with the tahini and amba sauces, but it was the falafel that was outstanding - perhaps even better than the ones I have had in Israel! You may be skeptical, doubting if 3 falafel balls and 1 pita bread would be filling enough. Let me assure you that it is - there is nothing more I could've asked for...except maybe some hummus. What could've been better? For one, the Israeli hospitality would have made my experience more enjoyable. When I found out that Pita Bakery was opened by an Israeli, I was excited to check it out not just for the food, but also for the banter and chit-chat with the chefs/ storeowners that I had become used to in Israel. Maybe the owner was out at the time I visited, and while his staff were helpful, I didn't get /that/ level of hospitality. Second, I would have liked the option of getting a small portion of hummus to eat with my pita! Currently, if you dine-in, there is only a $4 portion of hummus available to order. Given that the pita itself is pretty filling, I would have liked the option to get a smaller serving of hummus just to complete the meal but not fill me up too much.

Uh, No Thanks Some things are just not worth clogging your arteries for. Take Sideway’s 𝙍𝙞𝙗𝙚𝙮𝙚 𝙎𝙖𝙡𝙖𝙙 𝘽𝙤𝙬𝙡 (~$22) for example. I could literally FEEL fatty deposits in my arteries every mouthful I took, which was probably why I stopped at 1/5 the bowl. I’m serious, even every grain of rice was oily. - The eggplant that came with it was reeked of an acidic/sour mouthfeel, and though they were generous with the bowl portion, I’d much rather have something worth the calories.

Halloumi Fever ($18) Hello you, hallo mi. For all veggie lovers, this one's for you! Sideways has their Halloumi Fever, which comes with a choice of base (Couscous & Mixed Peppers), Roasted Aubergine, Zucchini, grilled Padron Peppers, artichokes, Burrata & hummus! You'd never think of filling up on this but wow, each piece of item is grilled perfectly with a hint of char with every bite. Mix them together with the hummus to give you a nutty fix and a creamy finish with the burrata. This well-balanced dish is great for days where you feel like having something in the healthier side.

The Artichoke Deli Dinner Has A Different Menu Every Week. T R E A T Available Wednesdays to Sundays, @artichoke_sg has a Deli Dinner for takeaway. As the set menu for 2 pax ($80) changes every week, you can’t sit around on your asses if you want to get your paws on it. I had the privilege of a sneak eat last Sunday of this week’s Vietnamese-inspired version when the bossman himself dropped off a very generous meal at my home - thanks so much again for that @bjornshen. Although the main act of the Deli Dinner is the monster of a modified Banh Mi (it’s apportioned into 2 x 300gms heavyweights for the Set), I found the rest of the items real attention-grabbers too. Take the Chicken Broth for instance, the only thing that needed heating up. It was extremely tasty, especially with the beansprouts, onions, herbs and enoki mushrooms (by the way, these should only be chucked in moments before you commence slurping). The Potato Salad was a side so bold from fish sauce caramel, fresh basil and a squeeze of fresh lime juice, it threatened to steal the thunder from everything else. It’s easily one of the more exciting potato salads I’ve ever had. With shredded cabbage, carrots, pickles, firm tofu and peanuts tumbled together, the Vietnamese Coleslaw was vibrant in colour but that wasn’t why it made an impression. Leave it to a sliced chilli-filled “nuoc cham” to create the splash (quite literally). Be prepared to unhinge your jaw for Bjorn’s larger-than-life cold-pressed Vietnamese sandwich. But remember, DO NOT REMOVE the plastic wrap around it. I made that mistake and it was like trying to get toothpaste back in the tube 😂 The wrap is to keep all the stuff packed in there, IN THERE. And there’s a lot of stuff. We’re talking lemongrass-grilled pork, bologna, housemade pickles, fresh herbs, vegetables and more. Except for coriander. Coriander gets its own ride. One of the sweets I received was a box of pretty, gold-dusted Donuts topped with pineapple and jackfruit. It was nice but the Chocolate Pudding was the dessert that made me sit up and go wow. I‘ve never been into chocolate-and-banana combos but Pastry Chef Nancy had me happily eating my words (and her coconut cream-covered intensely chocolate-y dessert with bananas and peanuts). The drink included in the Set was a pleasant and not overpowering Lychee and Lemongrass Cooler. To order, go to: www.bjornshen.com You may want to also take note a new Deli Dinner menu drops every Monday at noon.

Crab Toast ($16++) You might be thinking why a Middle Eastern restaurant might be serving crab toast. But Artichoke isn’t a place where you feast on conventional Middle Eastern food. I was amazed by the crab toast with chicken crackling and trout roe ($16++). So this may look like an elevated version of a crab mayonnaise toast but it isn’t. The base features fluffy brioche buns that are baked in-house. A generous serving and sweet blue swimmer crab is mixed with tzatziki. What a pleasure it is to devour this small yet satisfying snack. The popping bursts of umami from the trout roe played its part in boosting the flavour profile of this toast. And not forgetting about the chicken crackling which is basically fried chicken skin. What hit my soft spot was that the skin was really crispy and not oily at all, and certainly added a crunch to the dish. You can never go wrong with fried chicken skin. This was part of the tasting menu and this picture may not accurately reflect the portion of the ala carte version.
