S$38 3-Course + Coffee Set Lunch @ La Tapiera on 20Jul2021

3pax lunch wife wife & daughter @ la tapiera on 20.7.2021.^^

managed to find time for family 3pax lunch at our favourite tapas restaurant. turned out to be a short window for die in this week and all 3 of us vaccinated.. this period covid quite jialat for F&B operators also..

la tapiera offers a really great 3-course set lunch inc coffee, and S$20 off for S$100 spend with stanchart card.

this a newer menu…

tuna tartare was great,

& grilled octopus our perennial favourite..so good! (both have S$6 supplement)

didn’t have my favourite lamb rump..tried the lamb leg last time, same preparation alas not same texture/dish/results…

.but the iberico plums was good too, not as good though…

& the seafood stew very good, one of the best too…(both have S$6 supplement)

I not much into churros, ok with it..

I thought the chocolate tart (S$3 supplement) was very good last time…recently wife made chocolate tart also, and now having this second time, actually wife’s much better ls…

pavlova wife and daughter liked, not really my kind of dessert…will stick with chocolate tart or maybe cheese next time..

we had picolo latte, really the standard not good as my son’s or tiong hoe’s..basically the microfoam or lack of, didn’t integrate well with the coffee, so not silky like what son made.

Good 4pax Lunch @ Kai Duck on 18Jul2021

PT & wenyu bought 4pax dinner @ kai duck this evening on 18.7.2021.^^


not that great actually..

roast duck same style about 店小二standard..not as good as JB..& not as good as xin cuisine & silk restaurant slightly different style..

char siew mediocre not as good as imperial treasure or even chef kang

sweet & sour soup below average..酸菜鱼 ok* ..poached red garoupa slices very fresh & great, soup a tad sour, salty, spicy, not the best ..

chilled lala clams* appetising,

duck cone temaki quite nice with roast duck sauce added ourselves & crispy cone nice..

duck beehoon very tasty, string beans very good too.

overall 3-4 I guess and expensive…

for me xin cuisine much better quality standard
