Dined at Serenity Spanish Bar & Restaurant @ Vivocity (again!) last weekend. Vivocity has a variety of restaurants to satisfy any growling stomach. From its new foodie tenants such as Xi Men Ding (for your Taiwanese food fix!) to the Honeymoon Dessert (for the sweet after-meal satisfier), this mall boosts a panoramic view of Sentosa as well.
Initially, we were considering to try Carnivore Brazillian Churrascaria but its buffet prices put us off. Was something like $48++/adult for a dinner buffet. All in all, that would have set us back by over $200 for a dinner on an ordinary day! Not wanting to be too extravagant, we walked further on and stumbled upon Serenity. We liked that it was something different (how often do you eat Spanish food?) and we liked its laidback casual style which was really inviting 🙂 Walking to our table, we realised it was “al fresco” style – non-aircon, with just the nice cool breeze. How relaxing 🙂
Now to the food, I must say, it was really good! We shared the dishes amongst the 4 of us and we were filled to the brim. Even had to takeaway the Pork Knuckles… haha…! Food galore ahead! Enjoy 😉
Serenity under the moonlight..... oh, i mean, candle light...!
Champiñoses al Ajillo (sauteed mix mushroom with garlic in olive oil) - Hmm, we ❤ this! Yums, i tell u! If you love your fungi, this is a definite must-have! It's soft, fragrant and just oh-so-yummy. I'm salivating at the thought of it already 😛
This was on a special menu - Deep Fried Squid with Garlic. Another YUMS from me! Crispy and chewy baby squid with tartare sauce 😉
Caldo Gallego (Spanish Galician soup made from onion, potato, white beans, dice jamon iberico, broccoli abd turnips) - Piping hot and just so comforting to slurp, this soup is not too heavy and with ample taste from the sliced ham that are in it. With veggies in this, it doesn't fill you up too quickly to leave little space for the other yummy stuff. Homemade goodness. Nice!
Another dish on a separate menu, this was Cheesy Fries. hehe! Nice nacho cheese with hot crispy skinny fries - anytime 😉
Pork Knuckles are a DEFINITE must-have when you go Spanish! Rosco de Cerdo (chef's crispy pork leg with romesco sauce) - Similar to Marche's take, this porky is more tender and its crispy skin is yummylicious! Goes well with both sauces that came along. Great with beer too, i hear 😉
Go on, U know U want it 😛
Another traditional Spanish dish, Paella. Arroz Negro (black squid ink paella), a chef recommended dish. Here's our individual share from the 2pax portion. Nice and fragrant without being stingy with the seafood 🙂
