FOC Sentosa

New Year’s Day with The Knibbs

Our BFFs, the Knibbsy’s, had a great idea to organise a brunch on New Year’s Day, so off we trundle to Sentosa to a new restaurant for us, FOC. And it is pretty damned good folks, so here comes a wee blog of our fun and games but also of the pretty damned good food. FOC @ Sentosa for New Year’s Day with The Knibbs. It’s no Gaig, I have to say, having been spoilt there twice recently, but it is bloody nice nonetheless. Plus the double FOC in the blog title is on purpose because the crazy man did indeed pay for this amazing brunch.

FOC Sentosa for New Year’s Day with The Knibbs was such a cracker sat on the beach on a lovely sunny day. A gang of teenagers were playing Ultimate (frisbee) on the beach. Our kids were playing. The pool was open. People watching was abundant. The beverages were flowing, the food was plentiful, and the friends were wonderful. I love days like this. We’ll be coming back here that is for certain.

Let’s have a look at what the day held for us at FOC Sentosa, shall we? Our first day of 2020 goes with a bang, well actually with a POP!!!

As we arrive we are greeted by this. What could possibly go wrong?

What a lovely crew for today’s fun. An awesome location to boot. I am liking a lot. Although Megan doesn’t seem to think so.

Mental note to self. Must bring swimmers next time.

BFF’s – love all these guys!!! The guys to Knibbsy’s left really liked my painted toenails for some reason?

Here’s some fo the food. This is their pork ribs. These are absolutely wonderful. I think sous vide (so not me), but I will concur these are damned fine. I would have these again and again, and in fact, we did have about 4 serves. A must-try.

Sustainable Bluefin Tuna Carpaccio with Avocado & Air Baguette is the menu description. I like this a lot, although could not eat it. Too much fish, including Bonito flakes. Wifey had it and gave the usual; “It was nice…”

This is Knibbsy favourite salad of all time. Grilled eggplant, rocket, cherry tomatoes, Mozarella, pesto and pine nuts. Hell yes, I can see why he loves this. It is indeed a cracker!!!

Check these bad boys out. They call this ‘Our Patatas Bravas’. This is genius. Deep-fried potato oblongs, with dollops of fiery chilli sauce and mayonnaise. I like a lot. This is beer food on steroids folks. Grab a few of these with a very cold one. Awesome.

Padron Peppers up next. I love these, but they are quite an acquired taste as they can be quite bitter. I think they’re great, smoky and spicey. Again superb with a rather nice and icy cold beverage.

Wifey tried this and her only response was that it was sweet. Not the most positive response to a dish from her haha. Look bloody nice though. This is King Crab Canneloni I suppose. The only one that I can see that might be this on the menu.

Sadly FOC this was another one that left everyone going “huh???” and we ended up leaving it. I love the concept though. Cherry Gazpacho with Smoked Ice Cream & Sardines. I think it might have been the sardines that did everyone. I tried the ice-cream and it was really nice. I also tried the Gazpacho separately and it was tasty tasty. I also love the fact that it is served in The Holy Grail from Indiana Jones & the Last Crusade. “That’s the cup of a carpenter…” said Indiana.
FOC Sentosa
The server then poured the Gazpacho over the rest and advised us to mix all together to get the best taste outcome. Yeah, that is when ‘funky’ happened. Really not sure about that. We did indeed leave it. Whoopsy!

These were pretty bloody good. I love the open sandwich style in the Brioche. That’s seriously clever, almost Pau-like. I can’t seem to find this on the menu online but I believe this was grilled chicken with Yuzu sauce and Avocado. Nice right?
FOC Sentosa
Yeah, this was an absolute belter. The Iberian Pork Paella. This is up there. Seriously good paella. Smokey, crunchy, porky – it is a beauty and I will order this every time I come to this place. So very good. It’s a must-try here if you happen to frequent.
FOC Sentosa
Lukester gets deep into this dish. Ah man, what’s the name of the dish? I can’t remember, I’m just clamming up over this one. OK grilled clams in Sherry wine haha.

Few beers in now and it’s showing off the tattoo time. Meow!!! Knibbsy ordered some milk for it just after he did this.

Then The Archer gets his game face on. Not one to be outdone. Especially by a little puddy tat… All I can think of is Scammel Wheel Nuts… What tattoo?

Happy Wifey and Happy Jude – smiling despite sucking on a lemon bless him.

Water Boy
My little water-boy bless him.
Mad Mary
I just don’t know what to say? Perhaps for Wifey birthday present, I buy her a new set of unbroken nun-chucks?

And the final photo for the day. All the kids going crazy on the swing just off the beach. And rather strange is that a full moon seems to have found its way into the photo. How bizarre.

So folks that were that – FOC Sentosa for New Year’s Day with The Knibbs. A cracker of day thanks to The Knibbs. We had a wonderful time just chillin’ on the beach with our mates and family. Then it was an early dash home for the kid’s bedtime as it is school the next day for both Amy and Jude. 1st day back and 1st day at new school for Jude. It’s a cracking restaurant too folks, one to try on your next day off and you fancy sitting not knowing where you are as you drift off into relaxation mode. Food is good, the pool is warm, beers are cold, the staff are great – ENJOY!!!
