simple spanish restaurant

I would say that the food is good except for the dessert platter that I have ordered. Seem to be lacking in good service here. Waitress seem impatient and act as though a smile is going to cost a bomb. Wide selection of tapas. Paella in huge portion and totally worth the price.

Spot of Spanish?

The setting is very nice, on the grounds of the Singapore Art Museum, on the Waterloo Street side. There is also an al fresco area for those willing to suffer the humidity. Despite the hour, we were the only table at lunch and it wasn't until we were half-way through that another couple joined us. On the bright side, we just had more attentive service.

First up, our tapas of Chorizo slices dunked in a garlic-infused olive oil. A nice starter with the warm sliced baguette served, but just a tad salty for me. The sodium level would be acceptable with a nice cold jug of Sangria, which we did not have.

The seafood paella was touted to be a special and in my opinion, a Spanish benchmark. It was pleasantly tasty enough and decked out generously but somehow, I just wasn't sure of its authenticity, especially with the hard-boiled egg quarters (although I do like them!). Overall, the dish did not come close to a "wow" for me - the seafood could have been better cooked so as to be more juicy - most of it lost their taste somewhere but unfortunately not in the rice. Suspicion: parboiled then decorated over the rice???

The recommended dessert of the pear soaked in red wine, with chocolate sauce and strawberry ice cream was surprisingly very decent. Of course, the pink pear was the main character who stole the show. Heavily laced and pretty, it still retained its crunch and went well with the chocolate. The strawberry ice cream in my opinion was superfluous. I think a strawberry sorbet would have fared even better to make this an excellent summer cooler.

This rather nice and smallish restaurant is located at SAM. It offers set lunches from $28 which include tapas, main course, dessert and coffee. While it is a little pricey for lunch - this is a good place for a quiet and comfy lunch with nice ambience.

If you are there, consider the paella set lunch - I find the rice very tasty. For tapas, the garlic prawns is a must try.
