SINGAPORE RESTAURANT

Alati

Classic Greek fare on an otherwise hipster street

Amoy Street is all about hipster F&B action, but the latest arrival offers classic Greek food amid slightly kitschy surrounds. The warmly-lit space here does the typical Greek color scheme, with white and blue pastel tones, plushy cushions and simple wooden furniture.

On the food front, the claim to fame is that their seafood is flown from the Aegean every week, making the signature salt-baked fresh fish ($50-$70), topped with a lemon caper sauce, an especially attractive proposition. You can choose from seabass, sea bream or red porgy. Or try the Mykonos lobster pasta ($95)— a sharing dish for two that features a 800g lobster cooked in a herby tomato sauce; the Kotopoulo Souvlaki ($24) involves grilled chicken with fried potatos and yogurt. And it doesn't get any more traditional than the mousaka ($26), minced beef, eggplant and potatoes doused with bechamel sauce.

The mostly-Greek wine and aperitif list is pretty exciting-sounding too. Try citrusy Tselepos Mantinia Moschofilero ($75) and the full-bodied Alpha Hedgehog Xinomavro ($75). Save a shred of liver for their ouzos and mastihas ($10-$34).
