Kilo Singapore @ Duxton - Kilo Collective Celebrates Its 10th Anniversary With An Evolved Concept Of Its Flagship


Kilo Singapore recently opened its doors at Duxton. Its menu is inspired mainly by Latin America's culture, fuelled by an open format natural flame kitchen with a wood-fired grill.

Japanese Oysters 4/5

For a start, we had Japanese Oysters ($18). Their freshly shucked Japanese oysters are relatively daintier and milder in taste which I prefer. You may top up $5 with your choice of two shooters of Bloody Mary.

Kilo Seafood Ceviche 3.8/5

Another cold starter we had was Kilo Seafood Ceviche ($34). It features a mixture of chunks of tuna, seabass and red prawn tossed with organic tomatoes cubes that have been cured overnight in a dressing made with fennel, radish, Spanish purple onion, fresh lime juice, and pure extra virgin olive oil. The texture lent by the seafood was good but lacked the punch in its flavours for a more assertive acidity.

Classic Steak Tartare On Confit Potato 4.2/5

From Mezze, we had Classic Steak Tartare On Confit Potato ($22). The steak tartare is made with Australian wagyu cube roll, which has a marbling of 4 to 5, which gives a luscious mouthfeel. The confit potato had a starchy texture, bound well with the creamy tartare.

Signature Kilo Squid Ink Rice With Crispy Calamari 4/5

Signature Kilo Squid Ink Rice With Crispy Calamari ($26) is a hearty mezze good for sharing. The rice is specially treated and marinated overnight with a homemade lime-infused glaze with soy and fish sauce. Upon order, the overnight rice is first fried, then stir-fried altogether with squid ink sauce. Perhaps due to the presence of soy sauce, the squid ink rice itself was strongly reminiscent of a typical Chinese style of fried rice. It was tasty as a plate of fried rice but somewhat disconcerting.

USDA Prime Rib Charcoal 4.2/5

Don't miss out on its selection from the Charcoal Fired Grill for mains. The cuts from the Charcoal Fired Grill segment are served with Kilo Fries and Chargrilled Romaine Lettuce. We had a 350gm of USDA Prime Rib Charcoal. Prime rib has a marbling similar to wagyu, and hence when done skilfully, the charcoal fire grill will get the best out of its fats and juice. Ours didn't disappoint as well.

72% Dirty Seduction 4.2/5

For sweets, we chose 72% Dirty Seduction ($14). It is assembled with two different mousse textures: Hazelnut mousse made with a 100% pure chocolate mousse consisting of 72% dark chocolate chips and a creamy mousse. I love the contrasting crunchy chocolate crackers seasoned with sea salt and the warm chocolate sauce drizzle, which reinforced that chocolate-ty notes.

Words by Si An. A girl who is allured by travelling, loves the feel of freedom, smell of the rain and the aroma of fine coffee and food. Note: This is an invited tasting.
