Spanish restaurant Serenity Vivo City

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.

Esquina Singapore menu 2016 - 5

Why would anyone spend good money at a Spanish restaurant only to sit on stools by the roadside bushes and dine on a makeshift table with illumination mainly from the nearby street lamp?  Well if the restaurant is the Esquina Tapas Bar in the Keong Saik neighbourhood of Chinatown Singapore, then it seems many people are quite happy to do so.  Ourselves included.  Esquina Tapas Bar has been in business for five years and its hip factor does not seem to be diminishing.  The price to pay for not making a timely reservation to dine here is either a “sorry we are full”  situation or, if you are lucky,  a road-side table.  We considered ourselves lucky to get one such table when we turned up without a reservation. Some others after us had to think of plan B.
