Tucked in between a myriad of shop houses along Kandahar lies a contemporary bar that takes a modern twist to the traditional Spanish cuisine. The bar serves up an extensive spectrum of delish East meets West fusion tapas, pastas and thin crust pizzas, as well as 26 types of shots and cocktails each. Complement savoury delights with the in-house concoctions for the perfect dining experience at 26 Tapas Bar!
Visited the restaurant a second time with colleagues and along with the dishes I ordered the last time, I also tried the following:
- Fish in Martini Glass and Flambe: Fish was cut into cubes, sauteed in a pan and placed into a martini glass. Our server came with a shotglass of vodka, lighted the vodka and poured the flambe over the dish. Nice effect, but I didn't really like the alcohol taste over the fish, which would have been better without the visual effect.
- The Little Nonya Pizza: This is the restaurant's take on the peranakan laksa. This pizza had prawns, 'tau pok' (dy bean curd), fish cake and a laksa sauce laden over it. Good!
I like the innovativeness of the restaurant to offer food items that are creative and hope they continue to innovate, so I can continue to enjoy their new creations.
If you are looking for a place to chill with nice and affordable tapas + beers, this would be it!Made an reservation online via HGW to secure a table as we heard that it's usually full house on Fridays.
The friendly staff there recommended us some of the MUST-TRY tapas such as: Beer-battered dory cubes, their infamous chicken wings, white wine prawn pasta(I think it's a new dish), croquette, Shepherd's bowl and of course, the STUFFED MUSHROOMS! The ingredient used was fresh and we really enjoyed every dish ordered. As for the drinks, we ordered 3 of their 26 in-house cocktails (I forgot their names) and it's really nice and refreshing as i remembered one with pineapple juice inside. We end our main dishes with a dessert called "Melo-nana" which is actually Nutella based pizza with toasted marshmellow & fresh banana. The name is kind of weird but It was divine.
Great food, genuine service and nice ambience for chill out. It's impossible to say "No" to this place!
They've added laksa ($16.90) and rendang ($15.90) pizzas (you can have them half and half, $21.90) to the menu. We also liked the mushroom caps stuffed with chorizo, bacon and melted cheese ($9.90) starter, and the spud halves (baked potato halves filled with bacon, melted cheese and a mild blue cheese potato salad, $9.90) side.
