Met my Uni friends some time back at Star Vista for dinner, and our choice was District 10, a bar tapas restaurant serving more than 35 tapas and pinchos (spike in Spanish). Pinchos are small bites skewed on long toothpicks, typically found in Northern Spain bars and taverns. Although tapas are meant to be the star, the main course, pasta and pizza we ordered outshone the former.
Alfresco and indoor seats are available. I would use the word Chillax to describe the ambience- a place whereby many office workers would like to unwind after long day’s work. Service was attentive and patient; and staff are eager to help.
The menu is extensive, with a variety of tapas, pinchos, soups, salads, pasta, pizza, main courses and desserts to choose from. We were spoilt for choice and landed up squabbling on what to order, haha! I strongly suggest to come in a group, so you can order a wider array of tapas.
We kick start our hearty dinner with some tapas. Please pardon my photo quality; the lightening was difficult for photography
Fried Calamari with Wasabi Mayonnaise ($12). Deep fried with crunchy batter and springy calamari, accompanied with spicy tangy dip. Forget about counting calories and just indulge!
Sautéed Mushrooms with garlic and parsley ($8)- simple, yet so addictive!Natural Cut French Fries ($9) were crisp and crunchy, yet not at all oily, with enough fluffy potato inside to make them satisfying. Flavour-wise, it was lacklustre, hence ordering the truffle dip ($3) is a good idea.
Desserts were too pricy ( about $10) and didnt sound very interesting, so we went elsewhere for sweet endings.
Brunch and set lunches are also available during the day, you can find the menu on their website
Though there were variety of food to choose, but it didn't actually really capture our crave for it. In the end, we ordered as per one person's choice. It didn't sustain our tummy to finish up the ordered food.
Instead, we ordered a bottle of wine and finished it with a grin.

Tapas at District 10 has pretty affordable Tapas, especially if you go in a group so that you get to try as many options as possible. The bill came to SGD 25 per pax. It's like western dim sum! We tried the Stew Beans with Spicy Chorizo, Mini Black Angus Cheddar Cheese Burger, Premium Cold Cuts Platter Spanish Potato Tortilla, Smoked Salmon with Potato Salad, Pizza with Mixed Seafood and Basil and Rigatoni with Wagyu Meatballs in Tomato Sauce. I would say that the food overall was okay and bordering on "meh". But the ambience and prompt service kind of compensated, so it's still a viable option for gatherings after work. You will not be amazed by the food but you won't be turned off either.

i was quite pleasantly surprised at how good it this place was! it had a very refreshing menu, with lots of interesting dishes that we wanted to order ^^ i would say that the prices of their tapas were pretty steep though, knowing how small the portions usually are. thankfully the quality of food made up for it (:
the sauteed garlic prawns with olive oil ($12) were deliciously fragrant. a hit amongst us garlic-lovers ;) we devoured it in minutes!! the prawns were juicy, and the sauce was so good that we mopped it up with anything and everything available :P
i loved the jumbo crab cakes ($14) for their fluffy texture. they were such a delight to eat!
the mini black angus cheddar cheese burger ($7) was tiny, but so adorable!!! the combination of the beef and cheddar cheese was divine (:
and the naturally cut fries with truffle dip ($12) were so good!!!!! i think this way of doing such fries is much better than those pseudo truffle fries that have barely any truffle flavour at all -.- for this, the fries were fried beautifully - super crispy, while fluffy inside and tasty on their own! perhaps they were a little too oily though. the truffle mayo dip was delicious with sufficient truffle essence ;)
although i've got a feeling that tapas are meant to be the star at this restaurant, i was actually more excited about the mains!! bigger portions that would definitely satisfy. right? ;) hehe. we actually ordered from the specials menu that day so i'm not too sure whether the same dishes would be available. but they were so good, i really hope they include it in the normal menu as well!! the soft shell chili crab pizza ($25) was a super interesting combination - loved how there was a fusion element in this dish ;) kind of like an asian-style pizza!
