Mustafa Gungar, who worked 22 years in Singapore's Turkish embassy as the personal chef to eight ambassadors, just started this cafe with fellow chef Ismail Karasacli. Try the simple but tasty hummus with freshly baked pita bread and mixed kebabs.
Gd food. The Donna kebab was soft n delicious. The hummus was very tasty. Best part, they serve Alma chai, which the whole family enjoyed as we reminisced our holiday In Turkey.
Special thanks to Titi who served us.
First of all, please note that Arkadas' current address is not the one reflected on this HGW page, at the Fusionopolis building. It has shifted to a much larger location across the road to the "Sandcrawler" building within the Fusionopolis complex. Their website has the correct address: 1 Fusionopolis View, #01-02, Sandcrawler, Singapore 138577
I went for my third dinner at Arkadas yesterday night and as usual, it didn't disappoint. I was shocked to discover that they were no longer at their previous location and assumed they had closed down. Thankfully I was directed to the Sandcrawler building which may be difficult to locate especially at night, so do approach any security guards wandering around for help.
Anyway, the food was great as usual. What I like about this place is that food has been consistent (I know because I always end up ordering the same things), service is great, prices are so affordable (around 20$ per person) and they are now housed in a beautiful, spacious, greenhouse-looking area! Just perfect.
I'm not a big fan of the meats here, but I do love the hummus, the smokey mussaka which comes with my favourite butter rice (yeah it's rice but you have to try it - it's amazing) and the kanafeh which isn't on the menu. It's deliciously rich dessert made of baked shredded and buttered phyllo with cheese, topped with syrup, cream and pistachios, so you might want to order only if you have at least 3 people eating with you... It's not large but it's very very sinful.
So yes, highly recommended. They don't get enough hype here.
I found a chance to visit the renovated rest. The ambient is much better. Their menu is also updated with yummy turkish foods. While alcohol is not in their drink menu for the time being, the friendly chef told us it is going to be included soon. Definetely i ll be visiting more often
Since we have no knowledge on Turkish cuisine, we try to look at the photos on the menu and even used our smart phone to google on the names. No joke! But though we are supposed to have brunch here, we did not order any items listed under their 'Brunch' section. There are only three items listed (with photos) - Peynirli Borek, Pide Bread - Ekmek and Butter Rice. The portion looks small for the three of us, hence we decided to take a look at the main course and appetizer instead.
Doner Kebab Chicken ($8.00) is a simple wrap with lots of vegetables and tasty roasted chicken. It is a simple yet filling dish. Pretty good.
Pide with Lamb and Cheese ($13.90) looks unique to me. The lightly spiced tasty lamb was spread over the Pide and topped with cheese. It tasted delicious and better with the baby lettuce. The baby lettuce not only reduce and compliment the strong flavour of the dish, it gives additional crunchiness to the Pide which is a little wet due to the meat. Yummy!
