La Cala Singapore is a Spanish and Mediterranean restaurant in the heart of Bugis, one that we really can’t get enough of. It’s a contemporary space on Fraser Street that’s casual and great for lunch or dinner. The menu is as authentically Spanish as it gets and features tapas, paella, fresh fish and seafood, premium meat and a few options fresh from the charcoal oven to boot. There’s so much to recommend, but we really love the pigeon paella or the Catalan-style slow-cooked lamb rack. La Cala Singapore is right by Bugis MRT so it’s easy to get to no matter where you’re coming from, just be sure to arrive armed with an advance reservation.
The best thing about La Cala Singapore, being a Spanish restaurant and all, is it’s great whether you’re in need of a huge and hearty meal or just a little nibble with a glass of wine and friends. If the latter applies and perhaps there’s a group of you out celebrating, order up a table full of tapa and spread them out to share. The surf & turf is a delight and consists of stewed meatballs and baby calamari, while the cannelloni with beef, pork and truffle cream warms the heart. Should you feel like luxury, the duck foie gras terrine or the deep sea Mediterranean prawns should not be missed.
The food is so good at La Cala Singapore that there’s every chance you won’t want to share yours with anyone else, however. If this is the case, try the crispy suckling pig that’s boneless and served with melon, or the Atlantic cod with black olive, hazelnut and black garlic. As you can probably tell, dishes at La Cala Singapore bring bold flavour in abundance which, when paired with a glass of quality of wine, are pretty hard to match anywhere else in Bugis. Head to Fraser Street and DUO Galleria to enjoy!
We paid about $150 for a dinner for three people - three tapas, two mains and a dessert. Food was EXCELLENT, the flavors were balanced, meat were fresh and the portions were great. Staff were attentive, ambience was great - lighting just dim enough for a fancy restaurant but not too pretentious. We ended up chatting for four hours because it was such a comfortable place. I'm seeing myself returning many many times.
Fantastic mediterranean and spanish food restaurant in particular with an author kitchen preparation that give a plus of modernity with their good presentations. Veri goog attention in perfect ambient. I recomend whit total security. Congratulations for the chef
Whatever we have tried was so tasty, amazing tapas and main dishes. Portions are quite small, so make sure you are ordering different things to taste
If you really want a quiet lunch on a Sunday this is the place. The food was good. A bit on the higher side though. Alcohol in Singapore is way overpriced.
Food was good although wine list was a bit limited
