Go loco for tapas in Singapore

Singapore’s culinary history is as diverse as it gets. A blend of Chinese, Malay, Indian, Indonesian and European influences has given Singaporeans a strong affiliation with cuisines from all over the world, and a passion for high quality food at that. However, it’s only in recent years that lesser-known styles of dining have been making their mark on the Singapore gastronomy scene. One such cuisine is Spanish tapas... This Mediterranean favourite has well and truly found its home in Singapore, with tapas restaurants springing up all over the city. Tapas restaurants in Singapore offer the city-state a slice of Spain that fits in perfectly with the post-war, colonial charm of Singapore. But for those still getting to know this style of dining, read on, because we’ve got some good tips and information on how to navigate the Singapore tapas craze...

     Finding fantastic Spanish restaurants in Singapore

    Despite only covering 719.1 square metres, Singapore has a mindblowing amount of cafes, restaurants and eateries that serve the population of just over 5.6million, as well as all the tourists and visitors that come to Singapore each year. The Red Dot is a foodies’ haven, with exciting new restaurants just waiting to be discovered around each and every corner. Ideally located, Singapore has excellent cuisines right at its fingertips and its multicultural residents certainly add lots of new types of food into the mix as well. So when you’ve had enough of Singaporean chilli crab or laksa, you’ll always find somewhere serving up Japanese sushi dishes, American BBQ ribs and fries, Tex-Mex tacos, Vietnamese pho, Spanish paella and more! But don’t waste time traipsing across Singapore in pursuit of some tasty eats – let Quandoo do all the hard work for you, and before you know it you’ll be sitting down to an epic Iberican feast at one of Singapore’s many Spanish restaurants!

    No two meals are ever the same at Singapore’s Spanish restaurants

    There’s a lot more to Spanish grub than tapas, let us tell you… While tapas make up a large portion of Spanish cuisine (and we love them ever so dearly), you’ll also find lots of seafood, roast joints of meat, cured meats, soups, salads and more dishes indigenous to Spain on the menu in Singapore’s many Spanish restaurants. But don’t get us wrong, because tapas are as delightful as they are delicious any day of the week. At Spanish restaurants in Singapore, expect to see dishes such as patatas bravas doused in spicy tomato sauce and garlic aioli, bacalao, thinly sliced salted cod served with tomatoes and bread and chopitos, tiny squid battered and fried served with lots of lemon juice on the menu. If you prefer not to share your food, opt for dishes like Asturian bean stew with white beans, sausages and lots of fresh bread to mop up the juices, or go for an Andalucian gazpacho or some Balearic roast suckling pig.

    Much ado about tapas

    Since the small plates and tapas concept reached Singapore a few years ago, it has shown no signs of slowing down, and is only going from strength to strength. So what’s the fuss all about, then? Tapas have an interesting history, with several different arguments as to how they came to be. Some say it was King Alfonso X who found eating small meals helpful in his recovery from illness, others say tapas were a way to curb the people from drinking too much, and others argue they were invented to help keep insects out of drinks, as you could use the small plate to cover your glass. Whatever the true origin, tapas are popular across the globe nowadays, and with Singapore’s food culture as strong as it is, it’s certainly no surprise that tapas are Singapore’s latest favourite dining option.

    And where should you go then?

    So we’ve already talked about how tapas in Singapore are where it’s at. But we should probably talk a little about where they’re at… literally. While you’ll be able to discover tapas spots all over Singapore, here are a couple of our favourite places to relax, nibble and share with our closest friends and family. First up, Singapore tapas institution, My Little Tapas Bar. These Iberian specialists offer the true taste of Spain, and, like their sister restaurant My Little Spanish Place, they only offer the best when it comes to tasty cuisine and expertly made drinks. You’ll find them on Ann Siang Hill in Club Street, where you should absolutely try the gambas picantes (trust us here). Next up is, of course, Sentosa By The Sea, where (as the name suggests) you’ll be treated to seafood dishes like no other. With incredible views of the Sentosa Marina, relaxing here with small plates and several sangrias is of the best things to do on a balmy Singapore evening. And finally we simply must recommend, Barraka Bar & Restaurant, where their chargrilled peppers stuffed with codfish and potatoes combined with a buzzing atmosphere and live music make it one of the best spots in the city for some informal eats.

    With super Spanish restaurants spread across Singapore, you’re never too far from your tapas or sangria fix. Whether you’re in Tanglin, Bukit Timah, Boat Quay or Orchard Road, Quandoo has a spectacular Spanish restaurant in Singapore suited to you. Check out La Tapería in Orchard and try the incredible croquetas de jamon with suckling pig, bechamel sauce & jamón ibérico. Dehesa in Boat Quay is a haven for carnivores with all kinds of fresh and cured meat cuts served up by their expert team. Alternatively, get a real feel for a Spanish hacienda with al fresco dining at La Ventana on Dempsey Road where you can get gin and tonic infused oysters to beat the band.

    Dishes you need to get around

    Tapas, at their very core are all about sharing. Sharing food, sharing time and in some cases, sharing drinks – jugs of sangria, anyone? So when you’re thinking about visiting a Singapore tapas restaurant with your nearest and dearest, what should you eat then? Some of the most famous dishes on offer at Singapore’s tapas eateries start with croquetas, filled with manchego, jamon or cod, patatas bravas which are fried potatoes served with chilli sauce, albondigas of pork or beef meatballs in a tasty sauce, gambas al ajilo of grilled prawns served in a flavoursome garlic sauce, and the ever delicious Spanish omelette made with potato, egg, cheese and in some cases, onion as well. Going hand in hand with a cocktail, sangria or red wine, an evening in a Singapore tapas restaurant is one you’re unlikely to forget. Treat yourself, and enjoy!
