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.

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.
