Tapas Tree

Jasmine and I celebrated our second anniversary at this Spanish restaurant called Tapas Tree in Clarke Quay. No pictures this time, as the ambience was too dark to take any pictures, but we had a good time nonetheless. It set us back about $88.

The ambience is great for conversation and the chairs are really relaxing. Three amigos play pseudo-Spanish classics at the al fresco area.

Sopa de Ajo De la Casa - Garlic soup with egg and croutons - $7.50
This was heavenly. The garlic was so infused in the soup that it made the taste so rich and full. Strangely enough I could only describe it as really good instant noodle soup, but the fact was that this was really addictive.

Bacalao al Horno - Baked codfish with chickpeas - $13.00
This was supposed to be the tapas or appetiser but was the best dish overall. The cod was perfectly done and melted in the mouth.

Paella con Carne - All-meat paella with chorizo, chicken, ham and beef - $32.00
This was rather disappoiting considering its their main dish. The rice was a little starchy and basically didn't warrant $32. I'd much rather have had a few more tapas and bread.

Churros con Chocolate - Cinnamon-laced sticks with homemade chocolate sauce - $8.00
This was interesting. Have seen it before but never tried it. Rather nice but can get it cheaper elsewhere.

Tango mocktail - grapefruit and orange juice - $7.50
Meringue mocktail - Apple, cranberry and lemon juice topped with soda - $7.50
All sour and refreshing!

Food: 3.5/5
Ambience: 4/5
Service: 3.5/5

We're definitely coming back here to sample more tapas, and bringing some friends along!
