Club Street is home to bustling rows of quaint cafes, restaurants and chill-out bars. Frequented by office workers and caucasians, Club Street is more than often not the place to hang out after work for some drinks and light snacks. My Little Tapas Bar is conveniently located at the near end of Club Street, a mere 5-min walk from Telok Ayer station. An authentic Spanish place that serves cuisines and drinks that are famous in Spain. We say hola!
– Gail & Jem
My Little Tapas Bar is the new sister outlet to My Little Spanish Place, and is headed by Chefs Maria and Edward. They offer unique home-style tapas creations, and a wide selection of some of the World’s best Spanish wines. All their “Jamon” (cured ham) are hand carved, and comes from different regions in Spain.
ExteriorInterior Their current Gin promotion allows you to mix your own Gin, with 3 botanical “sides” options at the bottom to add on to your drink. The left side choices begin from $18++ and the right side ones start from $24++.Our mix: Gin with ginger, cinnamon and lemongrass.J: Ginger was a little too strong tasting. Given another choice, I would’ve picked a regular Hendrick’s gin and tonic topped with cucumber.
Jamon Serrano (Spanish Cured Ham) – $7
Manchego (Sheep hard cheese) – $8G & J: The ham was just the right amount of salty and not overly chewy. Eaten with the cheese slices and bits of quince (stone jelly), you can say these two platters combined is a winner. The bread was also light and crispy, and went well with the cheese.
Croquetas de Jamon – $10G: Breaded and deep-fried creamy croquettes with alioli. The croquettes were not crispy enough on the outside, and the inner filling of creamy ham were not as impactful as I had hoped.
J: I enjoyed how the cheese exploded in my mouth though. It is fragrant yet not overpowering.
Chorizo a la Plancha – $14G & J: Another wonderful dish that we couldn’t get enough of. Chorizo is a kind of Spanish sausage, and in this dish it was grilled to perfection and topped with cameralized onions and manchego cheese. Have we mentioned how addictive the cheese is yet? There is also a good mix of greens and meat.
Gambas Picantes – $14
G & J: The prawns were super duper fresh! That small pot of boiling olive oil, garlic, chilli and smoked paprika smelled and tasted simply heavenly. We were spooning it to our mouths and drinking it like soup. Better yet, dip the slices of freshly baked bread into it for a better experience. Muy bien!
Albondigas – $12J: These homemade beef and pork meatballs were marinated with spicy garlic, but did not taste as good as it should’ve been. It was a little too dry inside, and the tomato-based sauce was pretty bland too.
Tarta de Chocolate – $12G & J: Comes with a scoop of homemade ice-cream and a generous sprinkle of cinnamon at the side. Non-fans of cinnamon may find it a bit too overwhelming, but the tart more than makes up for it. The three-layered chocolate tart has a biscuit bottom and a creamy chocolatey top. Very satisfying.
Overall, there were some hits and misses but generally it is a good place to go if you’re looking to chill out after work with drinks and tapas. Might be slightly steep in terms in pricing, but hey, you get to mix your own gin drink. Also, where else can you get such authentic Spanish tapas to go along with your curated drinks?
