About Us

Artichoke is a Middle Eastern-inspired New School Kebab and Mezze Bar in the heart of Singapore’s Arts and Heritage district, helmed by chef-owner Bjorn Shen. It 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.
The food is fun and creative; drawing inspiration from Middle-Eastern flavours and ingredients, as opposed to being traditional. Imagine funky stuff like Lambgasm, Jewelled Hummus, a re-imagined date "pudding" for something sweet, or a Chef's Tasting Menu for a full Artichoke experience 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, and a killer cocktail series inspired by our Turkey visit in 2022. If that ain't your thing, or if you're underage, don't break a sweat. The bar at Artichoke also pumps out a sick fruity coolers, housemade Turkish coffee and karak chai all day.


Artichoke has several configurations for parties of different sizes - pick from our sun-lit air-conditioned Private Dining Room for small groups to full buyouts for weddings or company get-togethers.
