It has been a while since we last visited FOC Pim Pam, the Orchard Road outlet of Spanish restaurant FOC located at Hong Kong Street. We had visited them for lunch when they first opened in 2016. You can read about first visit to FOC Pim Pam here. This time we were there for dinner and noticed that quite a few changes had been made to the place.
We are experiencing a hot dry spell in Singapore. The sun seems brighter than normal and the dry heat is scorching. Almost like summer in Spain. The weather inspired us to search for Mediterranean food in Singapore. These days we have quite a bit of Greek and Spanish restaurant choices and we know of only one Portuguese restaurant. We ended up at the Tapas Club in Orchard Central. We have been there before but their weekday 1 for 1 tapas deal was irresistible. Unfortunately, we were told that this arrangement would end soon (I think they said 16 Mar 2018), so please call ahead if you are thinking of going. There could be other weekday offers in the pipeline.
There are many reasons we like to visit Spain. Spanish food and restaurants rank high on the list. There are attractive places to eat at different levels of budgets. It is not just the food. Nice people and affordable prices (especially for the Spanish wines served in restaurants) all contribute to the dining experience. Here is a list of the best Barcelona restaurants that we tried in 2016 and 2017.
