Tasty but the paella's got a ton of MSG

I sit on the fence about Serenity, because i do so love their paellas. however the first (and last ) time i tried it, i went home with a severe headache and was very parched.

I am very sensitive to MSG and it is an experience i do not want to repeat.

Serenade surroundings!

This is a lovely place with a very Mediterranean furnishing, lots of comforting blues amongst ivory whites, and ancient artifacts adorning the restaurant. The ambience is very relaxing, and sultry Spanish music invites one to simply unwind and chill out.   One could choose to dine in cool comfort indoors, or choose to be caressed by the (sea) breezes while dining alfresco, listening to the live band at the same time. The outdoors is just as enchanting as the indoors.   Four of us started the meal with a tapas of  Salteado de Setas - sauteed mixed mushrooms with garlic and extra virgin olive oil (SGD$12.80) while waiting, since the main courses we ordered to share would take 30 minutes' preparation time. The mushrooms were very tender and basking in the sapid flavors of garlic and olive oil. It was a very tasty dish that became rather salty towards the end.   Our 1/4 Portion of Serenity's Spanish Suckling Pig - Babi Culing Spanyol - (SGD$138.00), meant for 1-2 persons, finally arrived. It was a platter together with sauteed radish and two types of sausages - pork and chicken. The sausages were pretty average in their bouncy texture and saltish taste, but it was the Suckling Pig that left us swooning.  It was so tender that a plate could cut it up; it was succulent and juicy, yet the skin was not compromised on its crispy factor at all. Now we finally knew what the fuss was about Spanish suckling pigs - every bite was divine.   Finally, our giant platter of Arroz Negro Paella - Spanish rice with squid ink, squid, tiger prawns, mussels, capsicums and rice (SGD$106.00) - came to be shared by 3-4 persons. The rice was chewy and very tasty having been cooked in good broth. The seafood items were all fresh and succulent - especially the sweet and springy tiger prawns. The slightly charred taste added to the flavor of this dish.   For more detailed information and photos, please feel free to visit: http://thearcticstar.blogspot.sg/2014/05/dinner-at-serenity-spanish-bar.html

Best Suckling Pig and Paella I ever had

One of the best Suckling Pig I ever had. Skin was so crispy and yet meat was not dry. Surprisingly did not have the usual piggy smell too. It was good. 
Paella - we had a mix Paella. Paella was cooked with seafood, chicken, Fish, Prawn, Mussels and vegetables.  It was yummy.

Yummy Paella and Crispy Suckling Pig

I have heard a lot about this Spanish Restaurant in VivoCity and went to try with my family. We had Soup, Paella and Suckling Pig. Paella - we ordered the seafood mixed with chicken rice. It was yummy. The rice was cooked with seafood, fish and chicken. Coulour was yelloish and fulll of fragrance. We had the Barcelona - 3 meat soup wihic was the combination od pork, beef and chicken. It was great and tasted like our double boiled soup.
Then the Champin of the food, Suckling Pig. Suckling pig served so hot and the skin was crispy. Not so fatty and Oily. The meat underneath the Crispy skin was Tender and Juicy. 
Overall the food was good.

Thumb Up for Food and Service

We ordered Seafood Soup, Cod Fish Cake, Pork Ribs Paella, Pork Knuckel. Drinks was Sangria, so called Spanish Cocktail. Seafood soup was creamy and flavourful. Cos fish balls were big and yummy. Different from thai fish balls. My favourite was the Paella came with a lot pork ribs. Pork knuckle done in a way that the skin was so crispy and meat was quite tender. Nice roast. This is one of the best pork knuckles I ever had. 
Sangria was strong, made me tipsy a bit. Overall it was enjoyable experince. 
We did not order their famouse Suckling Pig this time, will go back for it. We got to witness their famouse plate breaking ceremony after cutting the Suckling Pig. They really mashed the plates. Cooooool man..
