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, falafel-crumbed fried chicken, malabi milk pudding with mango ice for something sweet, and wagyu ham pizza on the weekends, 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, rosewater lemonade on the weekends and solid coffee all day from our friends Common Man Coffee Roasters.
