Taking inspiration from its original Duxton Hill outlet, Sabio By The Sea at Quayside Isle, Sentosa has impressed many with its authentic Spanish gastronomical experience. Great food accompanied by a gorgeous view of the marina at Sentosa Cove — there is nothing more one could ask for in a weekend brunch.
Extending out onto the waterfront, the al fresco area of the Spanish tapas restaurant spoils diners with fresh air, sun and breeze. The enchanting location, panoramic views of the beautiful marina and Spanish delights make the travelling to the island worth it.
As if the serene view of the marina is not enough, Sabio By The Sea’s interior is equally intriguing. Embellished with antlered chandeliers, striking paintings and intricately etched tiles, the restaurant impresses any first-time visitor with its colourful decor.
But, I have not forgotten the real reason for my visit – the Hangover Brunch (S$59.90 per person) which promises a wide array of cold and hot tapas, grilled meats and desserts.
I started the brunch with the Chorizo Salad. Packed with bold flavours like chorizo and sun-dried tomatoes, the salad was finished with crisp croutons for an extra crunch. The golden yolk that flows out of the soft boiled egg further elevates the bright flavours of the salad.
Capturing the essence of fresh seafood, the creamy Sardine Rillettes is a dynamite spread packed full of Omega-3. Spread on top of freshly toasted baguette slices, it is a meal ideal for the health-conscious.
A classic Spanish tapas, the Gambas Pil Pil features succulent prawns cooked with garlic, chilli and paprika. Served in earthenware, the prawns are juicy and tender — the perfect tapas bar snack.
Sabio’s Pulpo con Sofrito is a beautiful arrangement of fresh baby octopus, sunny-side-up egg and sofrito mushroom pickle. The result of the broken egg and the other ingredients mixture was “octo-gasmic”. The dish would have been flawless if only the octopus was not overcooked.
Fresh from Josper Grill is the Grilled Tuna Steak with Chachouka. Sealing in the flavour of the tuna, the Josper Grill produces tuna steaks seared beautifully on the outside while maintaining tenderness on the inside.
A symbol of the Spain’s food culture, paella is no doubt a stunner. Loaded with fresh seafood (calamari, sea bass, mussels, clams, and shrimps) on a bed of saffron-scented rice, the Pescado Paella can be enjoyed as part of the brunch buffet with just a top-up of S$15.
Sugar, spice and everything nice. These were the ingredients chosen to create the perfect crispy Churros at Sabio. Served with homemade chocolate and caramel sauce, these crisp divine bites are undoubtedly one of the best Churros in Singapore. The good news is you can have unlimited servings of these heavenly dough sticks as part of the brunch.
