SINGAPORE - (THE NEW PAPER) I eat so many things for work that even if a dish is amazing, I may not always remember it a month later.
In the middle of last year, I had a bite of chef Carlos Montobbio's incredible miniature pizza at Anti:Dote at the Fairmont Singapore, and till today, I cannot forget it.
Chef Montobbio has since moved on to tapas restaurant Esquina.
Sometimes, memories supersede reality, so I braced myself for a reality check when I ate at Esquina. That didn't happen.
The two times I was there - once invited and once unannounced - I was impressed. The dishes were exciting on the tongue, without affectation.
Go during lunch and get the worthwhile $38 four-course set meal. I'm sure the rest of your day will be a happy one.
