The second eatery to open after the successful first outlet in Bukit Timah, the Boat Quay post offers home-style Spanish cuisine by the Singapore River with a more grown-up attitude compared to its predecessor. Here, you’ll find the same brick exposed walls, a line-up of jamón and laidback service it’s beloved for.
Chefs Maria Sevillano and Edward Esmero have given this menu a few refreshments, but the crowd favourites remain as well. Tapas to start with include Gambas al Ajillo or prawns cooked in olive oil, garlic and chilli, and Pinchos Morunos de Pollo or chicken skewers. Served in larger portions are the seared Ibérico pork, the pride and joy of Spain, as well as the Pulpo de la Casa (grilled octopus), a tender tentacle seared to perfection. If you’re just here for nibbles, a platter of jámon and cheese will do you well, alongside a few side dishes and homemade garlic bread to go with the wines.
The wine list is sizable, spanning different regions in Spain, with organic options from Mauro Cosecha, Geol and Auzells. Enjoy it by the bottle, or have your vino mixed into a fruity sangria cocktail instead.
