Best Spanish restaurants and bars in Singapore

From elegant tapas to hearty paellas, these restaurants and bars serve up Spanish cuisine in spades.

Spanish cuisine in Singapore has come a long way since the days of the cursory tapas plate served as a mere bar bite. For those planning to revive their gastronomic hijinks in San Sebastian two summers ago, Singapore’s dining scene proffers plenty of Spanish restaurants and bars.

  • FOC Pim Pam

    Unlike its more refined sister restaurant on Hong Kong Street, Pim Pam is a trendy and casual Orchard Road spot that is a welcome change from the cookie cutter mall restaurants on the shopping belt. The food are delicious nibbles, and the street-facing terrace is where we prefer to sit while chowing down on the Croquetas (in ham, mushroom, crab and spinach and pine nut versions) or their selection of flown-in Iberico Ham. Their version of Patatas Bravas are among our favourite potato dishes in town. Here, a deep-fried potato mille feuille is topped with dainty dollops of aioli and salsa. Look out for their Boqueria-style Sunday brunches (on ‘select’ Sundays only) where the restaurant is transformed into a buzzy food market complete with live stations, a food parade of their classics and free-flow of Cava, Sangria and more.

    FOC Pim Pam, 442 Orchard Road, #01-29, T: 6100-4242
