OLA COCINA DEL MAR
01-06, 12 Marina Boulevard, S(018982) TEL: 6604 7050 Alongside Peruvian chef-owner Daniel Chavez, head chef Ng Yi Yi helms the kitchen. Ng produces a hearty Spanish menu that’s ideal for sharing. A meal typically starts with a bowl of deep-fried prawn heads paired with a light, slightly nutty dip made from tomatoes, almonds and walnuts. Must-try dishes include the seasonal burrata and kale salad, which opens your appetite for the paella “Ola”, where the charred rice is topped with a generous portion of seafood including fish, baby calamari and Japanese baby shrimp. Before you order, you may also be informed of seasonal dishes, such as beef cheek with broccolini tempura. Service here is friendly, and starts with chef Chavez personally greeting guests.
