Lollapalooza Restaurant

Welcome to Lollapalooza at Keong Saik Road, the gutsy offspring of Lolla, where small plates are eschewed in favour of sharing plates - some bigger than others - and Mediterranean inspirations make way for a freestyle cuisine unrestrained by borders or your imagination.

In a refreshing departure from the well trodden, more-chic-than-thou counter-style dining couture that’s all the rage in the city, Lollapalooza sports a breezy Japanese-Scandinavian inspired interior with clean lines and olive-accented neutral tones. 

The main dining room packs in 24 diners, offering them a panorama of the open kitchen where a custom-built brick oven holds court. Whilst scanning the kitchen, you won't miss head chef, Issachar Lee, the former chef-patron of the now-defunct Kaixo. Further indoors, a 26-seat communal table with Volakas marble-top beckons for bigger groups (and those who don’t mind dining with strangers).

Unfortunately, the food wasn't what Sam and I expected. Maybe, its just our taste buds. The food were really not to our likings.
