Cocina de Pasion

Cocina Paella

This week's lunch date with E was at Cocina de Pasion, a relatively new Spanish restaurant in Tanjong Katong Road since there had been fairly positive reviews about this place in magazines and Kaelyn's blog. Of course, we ordered the Seafood Paella (SGD 15.40++) and a grilled striploin steak set (SGD 12.60++) which included a soup, soft drink , and dessert.

Well, I am no expert on spanish food but I enjoyed the paella served up at this place, which was very flavourful and had some burnt crusty bits at the bottom of the pan too (my favourite!). My slight complaint was that the seafood could have been fresher, but at these rock-bottom prices, this was already very decent. We swopped the set dessert of bread pudding for churros in chocolate sauce, since E had never had churros before (WHAT??!!!)....these were tiny and taste-wise, couldn't compare to those that I've had off churros stands overseas.

Cocina Churros

Cocina de Pasion has a charmingly homely and down-to-earth vibe, the food is fairly good, and prices are very reasonable. However, given the low business volume (there was only one other table during lunch on Saturday), I am not too sure if this restaurant will stay viable for long. So, do support this place and give it a try if you are in the area.

NB: Sorry about the wonky photos - taken with a handphone camera.
