My Little Spanish Place

My Little Spanish Place
619 Bukit Timah Road S(269720)

If you have never been to Spain and want have a taste of authentic Spanish cuisine, you have to visit My Little Spanish Place along Bukit Timah Road. This restaurant is conveniently located beside Coronation Plaza and can be easily accessed by driving and public transport.
Thanks to Spanish chef Maria, we get to relive the gastronomy experience during our trip to Spain!
 

Churros
 The restaurant serves churros as desserts, while the Spaniards have them for breakfast.
I thought I should start mine as starters.
These crispy and tasty doughnuts sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar are good itself or dunked into hot chocolate.
I love those that I had for breakfast in Madrid.

Sangria
The national beverage of Spain is a must-have with any Spanish food.

Tapas
Tortilla de Patata con Alioli
Potato Omelette with Alioli
A savoury pie of egg omelette, potatoes and onion.
Boquerones y Pan con Tomate
White Anchovies on Bread with Tomato
A brilliant blend of savoury marinated anchovies and sweet tomatoes on a crispy bread.
Champiñones
Mushrooms
Tasty sauteed mushrooms topped with cheese.
Pinchos Morunos
Pork Skewers
A char-grilled skewer of marinated pork fillet and bell peppers.

Paella de Marisco
Seafood Paella
The most favourite paella in Spain has to be Paella de Marisco.
No langoustines here, but prawns, mussels, squid, fish served with moist and soft baked saffron rice.
 
 

Dessert
Ice cream and meringue
 Maple-flavoured ice cream served with a chunk of meringue.

Verdict
It is not easy to find authentic Spanish food in Singapore and My Little Spanish Place has done an excellent job doing so. Arriving in the restaurant, I almost had a feeling that I was back in Spain! The food has been faithfully kept to its original style and flavor. For those who still naively thinks that Paella is like briyani, time for you to try it out! For first-timers, go easy on ordering of tapas as they tend to be quite filling and salty, and make sure you order a Paella. I would personally go for Fideua, it is basically a Paella which is cooked with short noodles instead of rice. Fideua is a Catalan dish and not easy to find in Madrid or Sevilla.
My Little Spanish Place gets two thumbs up from me!

Thanks to wife who booked this restaurant though restaurant week.
