Spanish restaurant Serenity Vivo City is one of the larger restaurants at this south Singapore shopping mall facing Sentosa Island. We were handed a $20 Serenity voucher as we passed by. “No minimum spending and no strings attached” was the nice lady’s reply when she saw our sceptical look. Technically, we could order $20 worth of food and eat for free. We could not resist such magnanimity and headed for an unscheduled Spanish food stopover.
Serenity Vivo City is a spacious restaurant with indoor and al fresco sections. Singapore was experiencing a wet weather bout of late and the outdoors looked bright but still cool. We took a table there and had a good view of the sea, Resorts World Sentosa and some PSA cranes.
Here are pictures of the $20 voucher that started it all and some pages of the Serenity Vivo menu. The tapas cost around $10 each. There was certainly a wide selection of dishes. The “star” of the menu was probably the Spanish suckling pig priced at $338. We ordered two tapas and a grilled Spanish octopus.
These are the two tapas, sautéed tiger prawns and Spanish omelette. The Spanish omelette, Tortilla Espanola ($10.80), was a served in a sizeable portion. It was just potatoes, onion and egg, yet it tasted very good.
The prawns ($10.80), was super tasty. It was a pity that it was such a small portion. Just four medium-sized prawns. We could eat three plates of this each.
The grilled octopus ($19.80) was not as memorable as the earlier two dishes. The octopus was prepared in very thin slices. We had anticipated bigger pieces of octopus to enjoy its soft chewy texture. The taste of the potatoes and underlying condiments was good but the octopus itself was uninspiring.
Overall, the food at Serenity Vivo City was enjoyable. The portions are quite small and we probably need to order a few more dishes to make up a meal for two. The cost of our Spanish food stopover would have been around $48, but with the voucher, it was a reasonable $29 for the three dishes.
