Artichoke is a Middle Eastern-inspired restaurant in the heart of Singapore’s Arts and Heritage district. At the helm is chef-owner Bjorn Shen, who’s been slinging out plates of tasty food to you beautiful peeps since 2010. Artichoke is an extension of Bjorn’s slapstick personality; inspired by his favourite movie, You Don't Mess with the Zohan. Go watch it if you haven't. Artichoke is probably the least authentic Middle-Eastern restaurant around. And that's exactly how it should be. The food is fun and creative; drawing inspiration from Middle-Eastern flavours and ingredients, as opposed to being traditional. Imagine funky stuff like cuttlefish shawarma, beetroot or broccoli or sweet potato falafels (IKR?), malabi milk pudding with watermelon for something sweet, and kataifi-wrapped fish fingers (the absolute bomb, we promise), all served to a backdrop of 60’s soul and 90’s hip-hop. If you get thirsty, Artichoke has got you covered with a mean wine list, ice-cold beers, ciders, Sunday Punch cocktails and a killer G&T. If that ain't your thing, or if you're under age, don't break a sweat. The bar at Artichoke also pumps out Turkish sodas, housemade Karak and solid coffee all day from our friends Common Man Coffee Roasters.
