From the Burpple community

Artichoke will be moving into a new home soon, and the last day of operations in the current Middle Road restaurant will be on 22 March. If you have a reservation from now till then, good on you! If not, shame on you but they will continue slaying with the New Bahru community from May. Till then, peace out and see you on the other side of Singapore!

And at the mention of their breadĀ ($4.80/ Bag of Bread), theĀ Green Harissa Prawns ($38) were wonderfully seasoned.Ā That tantalising green harissa enriched sauce/oil with split cream and burnt onions packed a nice heated punch so you would really need that extra warm dough to wipe it all up~ The prawns are also plump and sweet.

As good as I remembered them to be, Artichokeā€™s hummus is a must so I got their Mezze Platter ($28) for lunch. Plated with miso hummus with pomegranate, beetroot hummus with sesame seeds,Ā Greek chickpea salad, refreshing greens, tangy pickles and bread; the 3 mezzes of the day were great to share for two. Smooth and creamy, the savoury miso hummus was bomb diggity but the vibrant beetroot dip was an absolute delight - both perfectly moreish and banginā€™ when paired with their pillowy-doughy bread.

The spiced Duck Kebab Skewer was a sweet-fat combo as it was served with blistered warm grapes that complemented the richness of the meat. The duck meat itself was butter-knife tender, juicy and flavoursome with a nice crispy skin.


Jewelled Hummus was both aesthetically beautiful and amazingly delicious. It had a myriad of rich flavours and textures with a hint of smokiness and spice, topped with pops of freshness from the pomegranate. Definitely the best I've ever had and relishing it all with the warm and fluffy slices of Turkish Bread ($4.50).


Top: fried cauliflower @ $22++
Bottom left: battered fish fillet @ $29++
Right: grilled octopus @ $31++

Good but expensive (especially the cauliflower!) But it's recommended by most and it does not disappoint. The octopus is nice and juicy too but we've had better elsewhere before.

The fish is honestly quite bland and a tad too expensive.
