Sabio By the Sea

As we were having a staycation at Sentosa, we decided to hop over to Quayside Isle to celebrate a birthday. Sabio By The Sea seemed like the perfect choice after a relaxing swim. 

We reached at around 8 p.m. on a Friday evening and surprisingly, there was plenty of space. I guess Sentosa Cove isn't the most accessible of locations! We had to get a cab even though we were in Sentosa because the shuttle bus that was supposed to reach Sentosa Cove never came, even after 40 minutes. 

As appetisers, we got some Ham Croquettes ($14). These little treasures with beautiful golden crusts were served piping hot and contained loads of creamy cheese and ham. I thought it was a little too salty.

We also got the El Cerdo (Herbs Marinated Pig Shoulder served with Sautéed Potatoes) ($22). This was probably good for 3-4 to share and the arugula neutralised the otherwise salty dish. The pig shoulder was also rather tough and it got a little difficult to finish the dish.

We shared a Paella de Pescado ($26) which was good for 2 people to share. It took around 30-40 minutes cooking time. Whenever I have Spanish food, I always order paella as it is the safest choice. Consisting of seafood like squid, sea bass, mussels, clams and shrimps, this is for the seafood lover. The rice was just right and not too mushy.

We ended the meal with some Churros ($12). My friend thought that this was the best dish of the night (the paella being the second best). The churros were big in portion, crispy yet not oily, and lightly dipped in cinnamon sugar.

Perfect ambience and great service. The waitress kept coming to refill our cups and had a very good attitude. The food here was average though.
