Since we arrived in Singapore, we’ve try to eat ‘local’: Chinese, Malay, Indonesian, Japanese, Thai, Philippino… I now have a collection of Asian books. Our usual Saturday lunches are normally taken at hawker centres.
But recently, tapas have been making their way to our menus. First, J. and I went to Jones the Grocer. It is very chic, perfect for a Ladies’ lunch. They do serve tapas in stylish plates and J. feels very at ease and grown up. Here is what we had today:
- cappuccino for me
- Cola for J.
- beef Carpaccio for J. (though I am sure they use fancier terms for it)
- pastrami and cheese sandwich in a baguette (actually a very good baguette – crispy outside and white and soft inside)
- J. finished with a cupcake, with electric blue icing!
And now my ‘home’ version of tapas: red beans and chickpeas salad, with roast bell pepper and olivette tomatoes, served with marinated olive, dry ham and Manchego cheese. This is it in pictures:
