We visited Salt Tapas & Bar located at Raffles City on a Friday night, obviously there was a queue for it (as with any other eateries in RC…). Luckily after leaving our contact on the waiting list, we got an outdoor high table about 30 mins later.
Being a tapas place we wanted to try their Spanish cocktail, hence ordered their house name cocktail – Luke Mangan Sangria to start our dinner. We’ve also tried another normal cocktail – Kutee.
From the main menu, we decided on one Seafood dish and two Paddock dishes:
- Crispy soft shell prawns with chilli and garlic aioli – the prawns were crispy and came with a tar-tar sauce. Good as a finger food as it was a light snack.
- Aged rib of beef charcoal grilled, with chimichurri – my fav dish amongst the 3 ordered. From the photo, you can tell that the beef was grilled perfectly to my order of medium-rare. The dark pink centre surrounded by a rim of light pink cooked meat. I particularly liked the sauce.
- Baby chicken charcoal grilled, with rosemary & lemon, salsa verde – Tender chicken served with a herb sauce
Although it was named as a tapas and bar place, from the menu it seems to me that it was more of Australian dishes served in small portions (like tapas). The dishes doesn’t resemble any of those typical of Spanish tapas. What a coincidence that they were occupying the space of former Aussie restaurant – Double Bay.
People who want to try authentic Spanish tapas would be disappointed with this place. Nonetheless, they served good food (thou a rather costly price).
