A former protégé of Gordon Ramsay and Michelin-starred chef, Jason Atherton collaborates with local hotelier Loh Lik Peng to launch Esquina. This intimate dining space is inspired by Atherton's passion for Spanish culture, and boasts a menu of delicately created Spanish platters.
I had lunch here with 2 colleagues, the food is exceptionally good and for S$35 per person the set-lunch is great value. The counter service with full view of the kitchen is very special and the service spot on.
Food was boring and everything tasted kinda bland.
Crispy chicken skin was ok. Churros was ... ok. Burgers were nice but kinda slimy. No spice or zing to anything. Fish dish was better. Did not like the fact they charged $6.50 for water. No cocktail menu either :(
Went to Esquina tonight
Started off well with some snacks but ended badly
Four people ordered a range of plates
The raw beef came out first
25 dollars for two tablespoons of food that did not meet the menu description
Other dishes took an hour to appear
Service dropped off as the place filled up
All in all over priced and under delivering
The set lunches at #esquinasg definitely make exec chef Andrew Walsh's sophisticated menu more accessible (two course for $35, three course for $45). Clever dishes from their a la carte menu are featured here as well, do opt for the ample crisp baby squid with chilli corriander and blank ink aioli (U.P $18), the sea bass with chorizo and red pepper paella (a personal favourite) (U.P $33) and for dessert the savoury-sweet basil sorbet with berries, sweet tomato, yuzu yogurt and black pepper meringue (U.P. $15). The portions are good and flavours, spot on.
