Travel to Spain with Us!

They say that you can tell a lot about a country from its food. With its bold flavours, crazy variety, and timeless traditions, Spain is certainly doing something right!

Tapas

Tapas are small plates that can be served both hot or cold. Legend has it that they were invented when King Alfonso X of Castile fell seriously ill and was only allowed small portions of food. Nowadays, people usually share plates of tapas between friends, which is perfect for those who can’t decide between plentiful choices (like us).

Enjoy classic hot plates like Croqeutas de Jamon (ham croquettes), Albondigas en Salsa Española con Tomate (beef meatballs in spicy tomato sauce), and Gambas Al Pil Pil (sizzling prawns in virgin olive oil and garlic). Cold tapas such as Pimientos Marinados Caseros (homemade marinated capsicum), and Ensalada de Queso de Cabra (a salad of crisp baby spinach, fresh goat cheese, red onions, cherry tomatoes, and walnuts) are also fab options that’ll leave you wanting more.

Paella

You may trip over its pronunciation (pa-eh-ya) but you’ll fall head over heels for this Valencian rice dish. Possibly the most famous Spanish culinary creation, paella is an ever-evolving dish that may feature seafood, chicken, pork, or all of them together in one large platter.

My Little Spanish Place (Boat Quay)

Cold and soggy paellas are a strict no-no here, which is why their paellas are all made fresh, only after orders are taken. Check out their signature House Paella, heaped with all the good stuff like black mussels, chorizo, prawns and chicken. The Arrroz Negro (black ink paella) is also an intriguing option, flavoured with a black squid ink broth and served up with prawn and squid.
