Lebanese Food at Dempsey Project Singapore

We had Lebanese food at the Dempsey Project restaurant recently. It is an all-day dining cafe which rolls out special menus occasionally. In February 2022, it offers a special Lebanese menu on Wednesday evenings which features dishes like mezze, kibbeh, kofta, falafel and shawarma.

The Dempsey Project is one of the many restaurants at Dempsey Hill Singapore. It occupies the space that was previously known as Jones the Grocer. They appear to be creative in hosting special events that make it more interesting for diners to visit them. Prior to the Great Spice Potluck Lebanese “pop-up” event in February, there was a Moroccan edition in January. I notice that on 10 March they will have a “Dog Day Afternoon” when afternoon tea is served and an expert dog trainer is in attendance to share dog training tips for behavioural problems. Please refer to their Facebook page for details of these Dempsey Project events.

The Dempsey Project Menu – Pop Up Lebanese Edition

Here is a picture of the February 2022 The Dempsey Project Lebanese food menu. Being a novice to Lebanese cuisine, I can’t say whether this is typical of Lebanese restaurants, but I do see some similarities with Turkish, Greek and Mediterranean food in general. We ordered a mix of dishes. We tried many types of Lebanese food at Dempsey Project that day. I can’t remember all the details but will try my best to describe some of them.

Our meal started with a large Lebanese mezze platter. It was filled with different kinds of finger food. As far as I can remember these were mainly carbs and vegetables. Meat eaters will need to look elsewhere. It is a useful dish to provide nibbles while waiting for the real food to arrive.

We had the chicken samosa ($18, left picture below) and beef kibbeh ($22, right picture below). They remind us of Singapore curry puffs with thick doughy skins. These were filled with minced meat which have been nicely spiced. The beef kibbeh in particular were very enjoyable.

Our main course meat dishes were the chicken shish touk (skewered chicken, $32) and beef kafta ($32, picture below). Each dish would be an adequate meal for one person. The salad, rice and roti arab provided accompaniment for the meat.

Overall, the presentation of the food was very good. It was an interesting experience trying out Lebanese food at The Dempsey Project.
