Deviant Middle Eastern food. Not the kind of thing you'll ever get in the Middle East itself. We love doing things differently, and hate conforming to so-called 'norms'. Communal plates, cool music, chummy service, no pretentious bullshit, nuff said.

I find it similar to Thai green curry with huge crunchy prawn.

While I’m on a sticky date pudding rampage, it’d seem wrong to not review Artichoke’s which is, in every way, an exemplary sticky date pudding. It ticks all the right boxes for the perfect SDP: the utterly moist, so soft, and still slightly warm cake, sitting in a luscious, creamy, and decadent sauce — smoked milk in this case and it’s pure genius. It’s got lovely bits of coffee jelly specked through the bowl as well which really helps cut through the richness of the dessert. The only component sitting me on the fence is the cashew caramel sprinkled over. It’s interesting, adds a lovely crunch to the dessert, and has a flavour exceedingly similar to the muah chee peanut topping. It tastes lovely and my friends adore its presence, but perhaps I’m too in love with the classic SDP so I didn’t quite enjoy the prominent nutty element. Still don’t get me wrong, it’s a novel take and a mighty delicious one at that.

It uses Russet potatoes that have been steamed, grated and seasoned with cornflour and salt. It is then baked at low temperature at 150 degrees Celsius for an hour, giving it a soft interior complemented by the crispy exterior.

It is a prized cut commonly used in South America, especially in Brazil but not in Singapore. Being not a lover for A5 wagyu, I prefer my beef to have that textural bite. Hence the beautifully cooked rump cap is the right cut for me for that satisfying bite.

We were happily enjoying our spread of brunch items when from out of the blue, Sous Chef Nadine kindly sent over this plate of Chicken Urfa Kebab served with grilled cabbage and orange salad with mango amba, tehina and toum.
I had actually tried it at the hosted media tasting a few weeks ago and liked it but didn’t dare order it this time as I had already picked a number of dishes for us. Nonetheless, once it landed on our table, it was very warmly welcomed.
After just one bite, we were smittened. I swear it was even more delicious than the serving I had at the media tasting. The tender, smoky chicken meat seemed extra juicy and I do love meat that’s executed well.

From the selection of side items, I couldn’t resist ordering the bacon steak. It had been a very long time since I had it, and I dare say it’s gotten even better. Artichoke now marinates the slab of juicy fatty meat in shawarma spices which means it is no longer has the sweet taste of before. Instead, it is more aromatic and leans towards the savoury. After one bite, I quietly made a promise to myself to forget about sharing this the next time and just order one to enjoy all to myself.
