Back for more good food and stunning views

Tonight's catching up dinner with *Cheyene was arranged at Catalunya again. I was glad for the chance to reminisce and be refreshed again on the good service, splendid settings and vivacious views outside the glass windows. Catalunya is a contemporary Spanish restaurant situated along Fullerton heritage, with an exotic, exquisite interior and the iconic orange-canopied lounge area.

We started the meal with tapas - appetisers, basically. The first one was Estrellados Con Chorizo (SGD$18.00) - scrambled eggs on a bed of potatoes and chorizo (cured pork sausages) slices. The sausage was very salty, but balanced beautifully with the soft potato cubes and scrambled eggs. This feels very much like a breakfast / brunch item to me.

Next, we had the Cod Fritters (SGD$20.00) , 4 bite-sized pieces of this favorite Calatan bites. Sadly, it wasn't crispy as expected, and the interior was kind of mushy instead of the sweet, loose texture of cod fish.

The final tapas was has was the Suckling Pig Tapa (SGD$22.00) - the 2-bites version of Catalunya's famous suckling pig. The skin crackled deliciously beneath our teeth and the meat was light, succulent. It was undeniably delicious.

I ordered the Lobster Rice (SGD$80.00) again, luxuriating it its flavorsome simplicity. It was simply just that - paella rice cooked with grilled lobster. The chewy rice itself was infused richly with lobster broth, and the grilled lobster was saccharine in its freshness. Best of all, there was plenty of the tender, smooth lobster roe which enhanced the meal another level altogether.

Went for brunch together with my friends as we never had a Spanish style brunch before. Was looking forward to the bikini sandwiches, paella, salt baked fish, suckling pig but was honestly disappointed with all of it. My friends were having the same decent hopes too that it would be good but disappointed. The bikini sandwhich had ham, cheese and truffle inside but only tasted like truffle And it's like biting into a whole pile of oiled sandwich. The fideua(noodle paella) tasted like the sea but without any seasoning. Didn't even want a 2nd mouthful. The salt baked fish tasted just like intense salt but couldn't taste the fish though we were given the fish meat. The suckling pig tasted alright only but nothing to be raved about. The only good things there are the brioche bread, the omelettes, the cod fish stew, the quiche and their desserts definitely. Service staffs are professional and friendly there. The shows there are refreshing and nice but I wouldn't come back again. One more thing, if you were to put staff to serve guests at the table for a buffet then they should at least know how it's served or will be served.

A tip is to arrive for dinner before the sun sets, the glass enclosure allows for an expansive view to catch the dazzling rays of the setting sun. BUT, the restaurant isn't quite my idea of a date-night spot. With clubby music reverberating off the walls, it was difficult carrying on a decent conversation without having to yell over one another. Catalunya is more of those s***, chill-out cocktail places that would be great for large groups of friends who are comfortable shouting at each other without getting pissed off. 

As for the food, just about every dish was a slamdunk. The food was convivial and full of soul, but ultra refined, with an exquisite finesse I'd never seen in Spanish food. Unsurprisingly, food this good comes at a price, and a hefty one at that. Budget about $150-$200 per person to be satisfactorily sated.

Service was just as excellent. Professional and efficient but without the stuffiness of such fine-dining establishments. I especially loved our smiley upbeat waiter, who took the time to explain every dish, and gave the best recommendations.  

We had:

1) Croquetas de Jamon ($15)- crisp breadcrumbed rolls filled with potato mash, melted cheese and bits of jamon: Aromatic, moist and lipsmackingly good 

2) Calamares ($18): firmer than what we're typically used to, but still tender. 
 
3) Chorizo Y Estrellados ($18)- fluffy scrambled eggs with chorizo and fried potatoes: superb and addictive 
 
4) Lobster Rice ($80): a must-try and insanely delicious. Robust shellfish stock created a complexity that fleeted between the rich and balanced. 
 
5) Grilled Mediterranean Red Prawn ($85): small but boasted an incredible sweetness. These were simply adorned with garlic crisps, olive oil and parsley

6) Grilled Wild Seabass ($45): sparkling fresh and cooked to a moist flaky perfection. The only gripe was that this was overly salted. 

7) New Zealand Txeluton ($155/kg)- a hulking luscious ribeye. 

8) Cocktails here at Catalunya are highly recommended; we got a Jug of their Red Sangria ($127.44), which tempered the sweet fruitiness of the berries with the potency of a robust red wine
