Very tasty food. Love the meat Paella. Prawns are always fresh. Nothing sensational but would recommend especially when wanting satisfying food.

Casual Tapas in Clark Quay

Click for full review and photos! Octapas gets some items right and some quite off. The Garlic prawns, and poached egg with mushrooms are really flavoruful for example, but the paella turns out mushy and overcooked ingredients.

Expensive food and bad service

Even if the menu looks nice, the 40$ platter is way too much expensive with his 3 cheese pieces and few cold cuts. Service is pretentious, they do not serve ice water for group who had food after 10PM... Some Tapas are good though but it is a small compensation for the drawbacks mentionned above...

Berenjena Tostada ($9.50): To start off, the delectable melange of aubergine (eggplant), peppers, onions and Parmesan cheese topped on toasted crusty bread is bound to stimulate your appetite.

 Sautéed Shrimps in Garlic & Olive Oil ($16.50): Many at the table agreed that this dish is a highlight, in which the simplicity of sautéed shrimps boasts succulence and fragrance.

Huevo Escalfado con Setas; Poached Egg with Shitake Mushroom and Truffle Oil ($12): Mushroom lovers are in for another treat! Truffle oil is added to build on to the fragrance. Gently break the poached egg, and allow the yolk to bleed into the crevices and gaps, coating every morsel of mushroom with richness. The crispy elements are added bonuses for textural contrasts.

Lubina en Salsa Verde; Seabass in Salsa Verde ($17.50): Seasoned simply with sea salt and pepper, the seabass is simmered just right to retain the pristine textures of the fish, and complemented with Octapas’ Basque rendition of Salsa Verde, which is nurtured from a flavourful blend of herbs and spices.

Pechuga de Pato; Duck Breast with Caramelised Orange Reduction ($12): This is a must-try. I was blown away by the tenderness and moistness of the duck, and the zesty flavour that ignites one’s appetite.

Oxtail with Peppers and Red Wine Sauce ($16): Another highly recommended dish, also a personal favourite, is the Oxtail with Peppers and Red Wine Sauce. Stewed to utmost tenderness, the hunks of almost-gelatinous and meaty goodness are infused with bold flavours all the way through.

After a bout of tapas at the alfresco area, we headed to the indoor bar to bask in jaw-dropping live music, performed by the talented Live Conclusions. The band of four worked together in perfect harmony, as Singer Diwi Aishah Ali mesmerises the crowd with her indisputably amazing vocals, complemented by flawless music in the background.
