10 Spanish Tapas Restaurants In Singapore For A Chill And Classy Date Night

21st June 2018

Spanish tapas restaurants in Singapore

Good things come in small packages. This classic phrase is what I’d use to describe Spanish tapas. Even though they are served in small portions, tapas can offer a whole range of flavours, all packed in one mouthful. Most Spanish tapas restaurants in Singapore are pretty atas, so save these spots for when you’re planning for your next date or relaxing night with your squad. Along with a glass of wine, you’ll definitely be able to unwind while having a party in your mouth.

1. Don Quijote Spanish Restaurant

It is not surprising to spot Don Quijote Spanish Restaurant buzzing with life and filled with Spanish diners, given their reputation for being one of the best Spanish restaurants in Singapore. Indulge in their range of tapas, with a crowd-favourite being Calamares Fritos ($13++), which is essentially deep-fried squid served with a house-made sauce. For a unique flavour combination, Tacos de Lomo al Queso Azul ($21++) comprises tenderloin beef cubes and blue cheese – a combination of savoury, salty and tangy flavours all in a bite.
