Artichoke Cafe & Bar

It's not a new brunch spot, it's not the usual brunch crowd you see at a typical cafe, and it's not serving the common brunch fare you see at every other brunch place. So where's this place again?

Artichoke Cafe & Bar



Artichoke has been on my to-visit place like forever. I've been there twice now, and I can say that I love the food there. The grub here is Middle-Eastern food, perhaps that explains why you don't see "big breakfast" or "waffles" on its menu. In fact, the brunch menu is pretty limited - there are only about seven items, but you get stuff like pita, haloumi cheese, feta and more.


Now isn't that a pretty sight? I'm not a cauliflower girl. I prefer broccoli instead. Yet, I had seen the cauliflower dish being raved about by others on social media, so guess what I ordered...

The dish was aesthetically pleasing, and tasted divine. What more can I say? I never knew cauliflower could taste so good. So much colours, flavours and textures on a plate. I love love love it. I went there twice, and both times, I got the same dish.





On my first visit, I was with a girlfriend, so we ordered the cauliflower sabbich, haloumi and mushrooms, and a side of pork belly to share. The second time I went, I told the family I wanted brunch for my birthday meal, and proceeded to drag all of them with me to Artichoke.

My dad thought the place was pretty good, but it was not exactly the Sis's cuppa tea. I guess it depends on personal preference I guess. Oh, and while the food was great, the drinks were just average. I mean, it's not a coffee place or anything, so just normal coffee here.
