Kucina is one of the earliest halal eateries focused solely on artisanal Italian food that opened in Singapore (in fact, Kucina claims they are the first!). Located in KINEX Mall in Katong, this spacious restaurant gets regularly packed on weekends as people come to get their fill of Kucina's food. The owner and chef of Kucina, Chef Gero, is an Italian-Muslim revert with extensive experience in the industry, so you know the food is the real deal.
Tipo Pasta Bar takes pasta-making seriously. All pasta served is made fresh in-house using high-quality ingredients (fun fact: the name 'Tipo' comes from Italian tipo 00 or doppio zero flour, that's finer than regular flour, providing a silken texture) and often infused with flavours, such as garlic-parsley fettucine and squid ink fusilli! The pasta types and flavours are changed regularly, so look for new pasta to try every time you visit!
