Kilo first opened in Singapore before opening an intimate outlet in Bali in 2014, and in no time at all, the restaurant won the hearts of loyal diners with its charming atmosphere and flavourful, inventive menu. Behind the simple moniker is an endearing intention to provide guests with a homey place to bond over great food. The name Kilo came from the phonetic word of the half blue, half yellow nautical flag for K, which bears the message “I wish to communicate with you”. With that in mind, Kilo aims to communicate and create moments over hearty dishes, soulful moments and heartwarming conversations.
Building around the raw idea of a utilitarian home, the ambience at Kilo is stylish but very comfortable and cosy at the same time, something that ignites long, heartfelt talks over inspired cocktails. The food at Kilo is also a star in its own right. The kitchen team draws inspiration from a variety of cuisines all over the world and anchors the concepts to the heritage of its owners and chefs. Initially Kilo carried mostly Japanese fare, before expanding to incorporate Italian, South American, Thai and Korean flavours in the menu.
With different kinds of unique dishes, the menu at Kilo is meant to be shared. Check out some of the highlights, including the seafood ceviche with fresh tuna, salmon and octopus that will give the appetite a zesty kick, and the spicy duck and pomelo salad with nam yam, green mango and duck skin. The beef tongue tacos with apple miso slaw, roasted jalapeño and garlic butter is definitely a favourite, and the chicken bulgogi with pickled shiitakes, tempura flakes and horseradish mayo is not to be missed. There are many more of these appetising delicacies where they came from, so head to Kilo to create your own unforgettable dining moment.
