The new Culina Market Dempsey – a bigger and better shop for fine food and wines


The new Culina Market Dempsey has, together with the Culina Bistro, moved over from the original location at Block 8 to new premises in Block 15. We have written about our lunch at the new Bistro and concluded that we are not fond of its big, clinical space and preferred the old place (see post). However, in the case of Culina Market, big and clinical is good. We like the new Culina Market Dempsey for its new spacious layout and its good variety of fresh produce and wines.

The new Culina Bistro Dempsey at Block 15 – bigger, newer but is it better?


Popular bistro and fine foods store Culina Dempsey has closed their original store at Dempsey Block 8 and reopened a few blocks away, at Dempsey Block 15. It is now linked together with other outlets as a COMO Dempsey cluster of food and retail outlets at the front of the Dempsey Hill dining precinct. The new Culina Bistro (version 2019) is certainly bigger and newer. But is it better than the original one at Block 8? They opened at the new location a few days ago and we were there soon after to find out.

Jam at Siri House, new Dempsey restaurant by Thai developer, Sansiri


Jam at Siri House is the latest restaurant to open at Dempsey Hill. It is the f & b part of Siri House, which takes up part of the ground floor of Block 8D at Dempsey. According to its website, “SIRI HOUSE is a lifestyle, social and dining space bringing together people, art, design, food, and retail …”. This seems to be an interesting way for Thai developer Sansiri to provide awareness of their Bangkok projects in Singapore.

Blu Kouzina, Greek restaurant at Dempsey Hill


It has been a while since our last visit to Blu Kouzina, the Greek restaurant at Dempsey Hill.  Many restaurants are quiet during the weekday lunch and so we turned up without a reservation. We know that Blu Kouzina is popular but we did not expect the big turnout at the restaurant. The main dining area was almost full.
