Tapa Fever! Check out my other Tapa-licious posts…here! Finally got to try it. On the 18th floor of The One in TST lies 3 restaurants all from the same owners. One being Hong Kong actress Carina Lau (劉嘉玲)ea. I’ve been to Zurriola (post) a few times, Kyo-Shun once and now...FINALLY I got to dine at Tapagria!! One evening before a movie we went into the stylishly large and spacious Tapagria. Split into an indoor restaurant and outdoor patio each with its own bar and dining area. Yup, you guessed it- the food is…TAPAS. The space is beautiful, large, lively and elegant. They have an extensive list of tapas and sangrias…Alrighty, lets FEAST.
We start the night with a pitcher of sangria (which is not pictured…but we finished it all….I mean look at my slightly pink/red face. Hehe.) I pick a red wine and more fruity based one and am glad to hear no objection! The dishes come out fast and hot! We had to eat fast to keep up with the food coming in at lightning speed!
Hand crafted 48 months Joselito Iberico Ham ($285). The iberico ham (a type of cured ham) was AWESOME…It tasted sooooo good. Perfect sharp and salty flavour, and I loved the thin layer of perfectly sliced iberico ham.
Scallop wrapped w/ spanish bacon, ganchet bean cream and squid ink oil ($98). Yummy! This tapa dish is quite pricey. For 2 pieces of salty bacon wrapped scallop….it costs about $50 a piece. But the ganchet bean cream made a nice soft balance to the salty, sharpness of the bacon and plump, juicy scallop.
Slow cooked crispy suckling pig w/ caramelized apple and honey mustard sauce ($95). This was one of my favourites of the night! I really enjoyed the plump, juicy, and tender suckling pig. I loved the crunchy and moist pig skin. The apple and honey mustard sauce created a soft delicate balance!
Homemade bread accompanied w/ fresh tomato and garlic ($65) This was nice, but tonight I only had half a slice…it was pretty good though. Nice and crispy, like a chip!
Mussels in Parsley & Garlic Green Sauce ($145)...I LOVEEE me some mussels, and these were really great! I could eat these for days!! 🙂 The garlic green sauce was slurp-worthy and I practically drank it all up!
Mixed Seafood w/Red Prawns, Meat & Paella (Market Price)…The paella was mouthwater-ing great!! So smooth, rich, and moist! I loved the plump red prawn mixed into the rice paella. The flavours were so strong and rich..I absolutely loved everything about it, this was just my first scoop from the big platter of paella.
Potato Omelette w/ Onion ($55). This was one of the signature dishes, but I didn’t really prefer it. It was a little more on the dry and bland side! Just okay for me.
Chocolate Mousse w/ Banana & Passion Fruit Duo (Sorbet & Jelly) ($85) I loved the fresh fruits and sorbet. It was nice and fresh…mix it all in, not a bad ending to the evening. A little bit on the pricier side, but was a great meal!
