Fotia Duxton Hill Menu

I’ve said before that I don’t really like Greek food. Well, except the olive oil, feta cheese and capers.

But I like Greek food done right, like New York’s Estatorio Milos. Greek food done wrong is an annoyance, like Blu Kouzina. I’ll never step foot there again.

Fotia is one of those Greek restaurants in Singapore that shines everything wrong about Blu Kouzina. Because it disproves everything I hate about Greek cuisine.

Even the Greek salad, a toss of San Marsano tomatoes, onions, capers, florina peppers, cucumbers and EVOO, managed to keep me interested.

Or perhaps it was the Mediterranean ambience away from the noise of Lucha Loco.

We got a basket of pita and some Tzatziki, one of my favorites. Pita was warm but of course if you let it for too long, it’ll get tough to chew.

No hummus in the menu, because please don’t just look for Hummus when eating Greek cuisine. That’s the most misunderstood dishes ever. Hummus isn’t even Greek in origin. But be looking for olives and olive oil.

My friend and I each ordered their skewer because the platter sounded a bit too much. A chicken skewer and lamb kebab. Loved how the Chicken is marinated in yogurt and spices, so it’s super tender and juicy. Meanwhile the lamb kebab was ok. I wasn’t a fan of it though it was tasty in rosemary oil.

But no dry, unsavory meat like Blu Kouzina. Trust you won’t get that at Fotia.

If you’re looking for legit Greek cuisine, I recommend Fotia, over Blu Kouzina anytime.
