Alati Singapore is a Greek restaurant on Amoy Street. The restaurant space they occupy was part of the premises previously used by Huat Kee Teochew restaurant who had re-located to the RELC Building about two years ago. There are not many Greek restaurants in Singapore and therefore good Greek restaurants are hard to come by. Alati restaurant’s tagline is “Divine Greek Cuisine”. Their website states that “everything in the menu, from the meat to the pastry to the bread, are made painstakingly and meticulously by hand.” In theory therefore, everything about Alati Singapore looks promising!
Alati Singapore has a beautiful decor. Like the buildings in Santorini, the restaurant has blindingly white walls, ceilings, floors and furniture, punctuated by bright blue cushions. The colour scheme and cave-like arched doorways create a pleasing ambience. If you have a choice, request for one of the two sets of booth seats at the entrance.
Alati Singapore Menu
Here are pictures of some pages from the Alati Singapore ala carte menu and the set lunch menu which is offered on weekdays. We both ordered from the prix fixe lunch menu.
Our choices for the first course were the cold meze platter and the spanakorizo. The meze platter was an assortment of Greek appetizers such as feta cheese, olives, tomato and dolmadaki (a wrap using vine leaf). This was a refreshing way to start a meal.
The other starter – spanakorizo was a risotto made with spinach. Not bad but a bit bland.
For main courses we had the moussaka and souvlaki. Both were very good. The moussaka was one of the best we have tasted. The creamy Béchamel sauce on top was fluffy and light. The whole slice of moussaka was simply delicious.
The souvlaki was made up of grilled skewered cubes of chicken. The meat was cooked evenly leaving the centre moist and the outer layers slightly charred. Very nice indeed.
For dessert we both selected the Greek Walnut cake as the other option, yogurt, did not sound very exciting. With hindsight we should have tried the yogurt as the walnut cake was simply too sweet for us. The sweetness drowned out the taste of anything else used in the making of the cake.
Lunch at Alati Greek Restaurant was a nice leisurely affair although finding a parking space was a challenge. The two meat items which we had i.e. the moussaka and souvlaki could correctly be described as divine Greek cuisine.
