Back at Tapas 39, a return visit after a nice outing here some months ago. Tapas 39, a part of a private by-invitation-only Club 39, is a under-the-radar restaurant located along Duxton Hill’s leafy cobble-stoned lane that is rowed with quaint shophouse; arguably the most “Parisian” part of Singapore.


The S$65 (some reasonable supplement applies) tasting menu for 5 items from the whole (yes, whole!) menu is unbeatable value; many of the dishes are fine-dining standard, beautifully plated by burly but friendly Chilean Chef Rodrigo.


Here’s our pig-out of 12 items in order of our ranking: 1. Black Angus sliders, sautéed onions, cheddar cheese .


2. Grilled lamb chop, corn puree (so good that we had 2 portions)


3. Linguine with burrata cheese, scallop, caviar (the real stuff!).


4. Tuna tataki, mashed avocado.


5. Gourmet pizza with Jamon Iberico.


6. Croquette with mushroom and foie-gras.


7. Mini lobster roll with wasabi mayonnaise.


8. Stuffed pasta rounds with lobster sauce.


9. Bamboo clams with artichokes.


10. Dessert of Tiramisu.


11. Chef Rodrigo comped us the Ginger & Apple creme bulee.


An awesome meal – Chef Rodrigo is a man to watch. Do give Tapas 39 a try – and don;t forget to take a leisurely evening stroll around one of the best walks in Singapore to work off your feast – and I’ll bet that you will feast.
