Kulto – Spanish Restaurant in Singapore

Kulto, a good Spanish restaurant in Singapore, is located within Chinatown neighbourhood, at 87 Amoy Street.

Open to customers since February 2021, the open kitchen outlet, where the name is derived from ‘culto‘, meaning ‘cultured‘ and ‘educated‘ in Spanish, delivers a slice of the best culinary culture from Spain.

Many of the menu choices are made in homage to the Northern Spanish region of La Rioja – renowned for its wine industry – its heritage, culture, and philosophy, where good quality produce speak for themselves and with every plate steering close to the traditional rendition of the dish.

Overall, the cuisine of La Rioja in Spain, from where much of the menu takes inspiration from, is simple and rustic, but it is also delicious and satisfying. It is based on fresh ingredients including vegetables, meat, and fish.

Some of the most popular dishes in La Rioja include the likes of:

  • Patatas a la riojana: This hearty dish is made with potatoes, chorizo, and paprika. It is often served as a main course or as a side dish with meat.
  • Pimientos rellenos: These stuffed peppers are filled with a mixture of ground meat, rice, and vegetables. They are then baked in a tomato sauce.
  • Chuletillas de cordero: These lamb chops are grilled over an open fire and served with a simple garnish of salt and pepper.
  • Bacalao a la riojana: This cod dish is cooked in a tomato sauce with onions, peppers, and garlic. It is often served with hard-boiled eggs and black olives.
  • Menestra de verduras: This vegetable stew is made with a variety of seasonal vegetables, such as asparagus, artichokes, and peas. It is often served as a starter or as a side dish.

Of course, no meal based out of La Rioja cuisine is complete without a glass of wine. The Spanish region is home to many world-renowned wineries, and there is a wide variety of Rioja wines to choose from.
