We had lunch recently at Spanish restaurant Pura Brasa Singapore in Tanjong Pagar Centre. It is the local branch of Pura Brasa, a restaurant which has several outlets in Spain. According to their international website, it “is a new high quality restaurant concept, which combines the characteristics of traditional healthy cooking, i.e charcoal-grilling using JOSPER® technology, with a novel formula of understanding the act of eating, or simply enjoying some tapas ….“
Tapas Club is a new Spanish restaurant that opened a week ago in Orchard Central, Singapore. It is located at the eastern end of level 2, right opposite another restaurant, Real Food. We discovered that it is run by D+1 Holding – the same company that operates another Spanish restaurant in Singapore – the successful Binomo Restaurant in Tanjong Pagar.
El Sifo d’en Garriga is a cosy new snack bar in Eixample, Barcelona that we stumbled upon recently. In a location that is teeming with places to eat, this little cafe stood out from the others by its bright white clinical decor. It has been sometime since we have come across any eatery calling itself a “snack bar”. Perhaps the Singapore Magnolia Snack Bar from days gone by was the last one we can remember.

Bar 61 Tapas Bar & Restaurant is located in South London, a 30 minute drive away from Hyde Park or 20 minute drive from the London Eye. It is off the beaten track of the typical London visitors yet Bar 61 is currently ranked #5 of 17,837 Restaurants in London on TripAdvisor. We had dinner at Bar 61 and would agree with the many five-star reviews written about this charming restaurant on Streatham Hill.
