Kilo Kitchen Duxton, Singapore
The Kilo brand has rightly earned a strong following in Singapore, with its unique offering of Latin- and Asian-influenced comfort food, its friendly approach to service, and its interior character fusing industrial rawness with a homely vibe.
Following the recent closure of its Kallang outlet, Kilo Kitchen has opened new digs in the Tanjong Pagar district, a short walk from its sister venue Kilo Lounge.
The new venue worked smartly with the parameters of the 3000-square-foot space, making the most of its corner location by opening up the interior to the five-foot-way and transforming what was once a transit zone into a space to dwell on rattan seating and watch the passing parade.
Inside, beyond the floor-to-ceiling rusted metal-framed bi-folding glazed doors, one finds hand-sanded concrete walls, natural stone, brass finishes and recycled timber that exudes ‘Kilo’ charm. Bespoke furniture with rattan accent, Turkish marble, Italian ceramic tiles, vintage rugs and bold, bright fabrics inject warmth in tones of grey, gold, mustard, and pink.
A distinct marble and brass bar extends across the width of the space beside an open-concept, natural-flame kitchen that’s surrounded by ceramic tiles and has a brick-encased wood-fire grill at its heart.
