My Little Spanish Place, families and boxing

My Little Spanish Place, families and boxing is the title, and you may be wondering why? Well, it’s as simple as, we did all these things today. Amy was off on a camp so we went to Decathlon to procure her needed attire, sleeping bags etc. Prior to that was lunch, and after that was dinner. The usual jam-packed day for us. And the usual Bennetton Advert family photos. We should so get sponsorship from them haha. Walking advert models. Here we go. How did all this begin…?

Lunch first though at the hawker with the gorgeous gang. Happy families.

And after that, there is nothing like a little boxing to let your food settle. Well so thinks Jude. So cute, and so deadly all in one.

A special treat for us all for dinner. Off to see our BFF Chef Edward for some exceptional Spanish food. Best on The Red Dot in my reckoning!!! I introduced J & J to the black-footed pig 1st. You will be eating this shortly guys, shake a hoof!!!

You gotta love Singapore right. It is quality living here. Monster gang of us about to tuck into AMAZING food, beautiful view of the river and The Fullerton. And have this pretty much 365 days a year. Yeah, that’s special!!!

Yes indeed. Bring it on. Here is a ROUBLE platter of 4 ages of Jamon. Light to dark, youngest to oldest curing. This is just OFF THE CHARTS good. I imagine usually this would be slowly picked at, but family Kennett DESTROYED it in a very short time. it was GONE!!!

We love this guy! We’ve known Chef Edward for years now before the one in the middle was even born. So that gives you an idea. Top Chef!!! Top bloke. You MUST visit him if you have not yet. Boat Quay or Bukit Timah. We like Boat Quay because of the outside seating and view of the river.

I would absolutely recommend you book though guys. They were turning people away this night we went. I kid you not.

1st up is a family favourite. Crazily good prawns. I find out today that the reason the sauce tastes of pate is because they make it with the head fat from the prawn. The sauce takes hours and hours, so do not under-estimate this unassuming dish. It’s stellar; Fresh shrimp cooked in a dish of boiling olive oil with garlic and chilli pepper, It makes it all sound so simple. Believe me, this is beer food on steroids. Just get that fresh-baked bread and dip away in that sauce. Heavenly! GAMBAS AL AJILLO.

Fresh in that day from Spain. PIMIENTOS DEL PADRÓN, which is chargrilled Galician green peppers with sea salt. A slight warmth to these, and sweetness with the little bitter kicker, then the salt hits too. Bring another icy cold beer right now please garcon!!! Sorry, that’s French, I meant camarero.

Yet another cracker and family favourite. An amazing asparagus dish. ESPÁRRAGOS A LA PLANCHA, which is grilled asparagus with garlic dressing, then topped with crispy Serrano Jamón and Manchego cheese. I mean come on Chef…

I just have no idea if Jude enjoys eating here. Truly no idea. What you think folks?

As we have a gang of us, and my Mary doesn’t get to have this much. My BAD sorry hun. Today she can get stuck into a Paella. PAELLA DE LA CASA is the house version. A full-flavoured recipe seafood broth, prawns, fish, black mussels, squid, chicken and chorizo. My gang were in love as soon as I mentioned ordering it.

CROQUETAS DE JAMON which are just amaze-balls. Lightly fried Jamón-stuffed creamy croquettes. I always through it is potato, but Chef corrected me, it’s bechamel. Double WHAMMY!!! These went too fast for me to even get a photo. So also on the porky frontage, we get stuck into SECRETO IBERICO. Iberian pork marinated in Chef’s special sauce, served with Piquillo peppers and crispy shaved potatoes. Yeap all over this one, especially with a little dip in the balsamic reduction dotted over the plate.

My Mary has to have her octopus fix. This dish won the best dish in Boat Quay award, and rightly so. Bring it on Chef’s have a crack at beating Edward because this is off the charts!!! PULPO DE LA CASA. Grilled fresh octopus leg seasoned with pimenton, sea salt and olive oil, served with red pepper and potato purees. It’s a stunning looking dish, and I guarantee the feedback from all was that this is amaze-balls good.

Where’s that paella gone? Hold on a minute BeBe ha ha. It’s gone!!! You can’t resist the food here.

TABLA DE QUESOS to finish off an incredible meal, as always!!! Chef, be proud brother. Everything was just the best. Everyone loved it.

OK, one more dish please Dad. I reckon I might just be able to squeeze some ice-cream down. Only just though Dad, look!

My Little Spanish Place, families and boxing

The gang of five. Food finished now. A slow walk to the taxi, and to burn off some of that food intake. All very happy, and extremely well fed. What a cracking time we had.

There we go what a lovely day today was. A funny title, but you get the meaning now right? My Little Spanish Place, families and boxing. So lovely to see out mate Chef Edward. Funny that Amy and I bumped into him only a short while ago in Siglap when he was catering for some friends at one of the wine bars. This time it was our turn to be catered for and it was damned good I can tell you. Amy is fully packed and ready for camping adventures leaving on Monday. Massive fun with the whole family today. And my little Jude cracks me up yet again with his boxing antics. Just too funny. So my friends if you want a lovely family day out, perhaps ignore the Decathlon shopping ha ha, but get down for some tapas as you will – ENJOY!!!
