La Forketta's reputation has been forged together with the wood fired baked sourdough pizza and organic fresh pasta, both carefully prepared daily to maintain the freshness our food is known by. We carefully recreate preceding generations' traditional recipes. We are proud to say that this requires hard work, just as it did back in the day. Far from daunting La Forketta, which has been adapting Italian heritage recipes to modern dining trends for several years, it has encouraged all of us to continue in the path of tradition and improvement. Our specialty consists of dishes where the simplicity of the handmade preparation dwells with the delicacy and intensity of the flavor. Judging by the flurry activity at our balmy Dempsey Hill dinning room, we know our diners choose us because they can taste the difference that a crafted dish is able to make.​ As we know the atmosphere is as important as the dishes themselves, we made sure to pay it the proper attention. The result was floor to ceiling windows wrapping with the cathedral height space, providing it light as organic as our ingredients and greenery from the Dempsey surroundings. Our pizzas mature in a mammoth wood-fired oven and our pasta is boiled in a surrounding open kitchen. The architectural infrastructure speaks for itself, proclaiming to be the pasta and pizza restaurants' fortress. To add to the industrial feel, on trend black iron railings outline the windows and ceiling, while the freshly-cut wood blocks neatly stacked for offering our customers the best experience regarding baked pizza give a cozy contrast to the industrial style. A looser vibe awaits you in our outdoor veranda full of raw wood tables that shape the rusticity of the area and get ready to embrace the dish of your dreams. Our pasta dishes are freshly cooked every day following the perfectionist a la minute technique. A unique blend of kamut wheat semolina gives structure and firmness our exclusive pasta. The exclusive selection of pizzas baked in the wood-fired oven is bathed with fresh and creamy authentic Italian mozzarella.

Blu Kouzina, a favourite destination for authentic Greek cuisine in Singapore for the past few years, is moving to a new location on Dempsey Hill. The new space brings together elements of Greek mythology and design along with Singapore’s Chinese heritage and its colonial past. Stepping through the entrance, graced with two Mycaenian Lions, onto the black-and-white tiled floor and surrounded by the decorative Meander pattern, one isn’t only transferred to Greece’s rich ancient culture. The patterns also strike a familiar tone with designs seen in ancient China as well as Singapore’s black-and-white houses. It’s a marriage of culture that will make you feel at home as you settle for a culinary adventure a world away. The combination of past and present continues in the menu, where fresh and quality ingredients are used in dishes both traditional and creatively contemporary.
