Named after the Bomba rice used to make its paella, this 70-seater newbie serves up a handful of paella to choose from such as langoustine, squid & prawn and arroz negro, with squid, dry sherry, squid ink and black mushrooms cooked in fish stock. The menu isn't short on Spanish wines, but if you're in need of a cocktail, order our favorite, the Bomba punch.
A slick, modern Spanish restaurant and bar housed in newly built glass dome The Fullerton Pavilion with visually arresting views of the Marina Bay waterfront. It also boasts a team of elBulli and Santi alum including award-winning mixologist Dario Nocentini.
Try the meatballs with apple sauce and pine nuts at this Spanish restaurant in Dempsey, as well as the Rabo de Toro (a hearty oxtail stew with carrots, potatoes and garbanzo beans). Another winner is their Arroz Negro (squid ink paella studded with seafood).
Jason Atherton's only Spanish restaurant in Singapore continues to impress with superb food (try the ox cheek oloroso showered with bone marrow crumbs, barbecued mackerel, pork bolly confit) and a lively atmosphere.
This Spanish restaurant is a refreshing change from fancy spots backed by big bucks and big names. It's got just the right amounts of character and cool, with an almost underground feel, and offers simple tapas done well. Come prepared to order just about everything.
Octapas Spanish Tapas Bar
Order a round of blackberry sangrias and choose from a broad range of dishes, including the Octapas recommended beef tenderloin cubes and grilled squid in balsamic vinegar reduction. Don't forget dessert—we can vouch for the churros; crispy sticks of pure sugar, fried until golden and served with chocolate sauce.
Sabio Tapas Bar & Restaurant
Round up some friends and order the mixed platter of Spanish ham, sausages and cheese, along with glasses of red sangria. We also like their patatas alioli (fat wedges of fried potatoes with a thick garlic sauce) and pincho moruno de pollo al ajillo (a generous portion of chicken skewers draped with melted Manchego). Leave your jacket at home though; it may get stuffy.
Salt tapas & bar
An attractive Spanish restaurant with lots to take in, Salt's food is organized by categories like butcher, sea, paddock and garden, so it's easy to navigate the fairly extensive number of items. Dishes to try include the moreish baked bone marrow with shiitake duxelles and air-dried olives, and the flavorful Wagyu sausage with polenta and capers. Also a great spot for after-work drinks and people-watching.
Serenity Restaurant and Bistro
Try their house specialty, the Briez Lam, which is off-the-bone braised lamb shank with a flavorful tomato-based sauce and mashed potatoes. Look out for the dried wolfberries, which is liberally sprinkled in most of the dishes—apparently the chef's signature touch. The Granny Smith bread crumble—crispy deep-fried bread topped with a layer of sinful stewed green apples, digestive crumble and vanilla ice‑cream—is a really nice surprise too.
Zsofi Tapas Bar
It may not be a full-fledged Spanish restaurant but Little India's Zsofi Tapas Bar stays true to the tapas bar culture of serving free tapas with drinks. A single serving of tapas is complimentary with any order of alcoholic drink or mocktail—take your pick from the sinfully delicious chili Buffalo wings, homemade meatballs and many more.
