RESTAU­RANT GAIG

T. Dining by Singapore Tatler - - Indian -

16 Stan­ley Street, S(068735) Gaig is a bright and cosy space that serves tasty, rus­tic Span­ish fare. Its founder and chef is Car­les Gaig, one of Barcelona’s most cel­e­brated sons. The menu is a mix of clas­sics and slightly mod­ern cre­ations. Gaig and res­i­dent chef de cui­sine Esteve Gar­cia Vi­lanova dip into the 19th cen­tury, with dishes such as beef- and pork-stuffed can­nel­loni, sauced with truf­fle cream, and a quail, Al­can­tara-style. These dishes, for to­day’s mod­ern din­ers, might be a tad on the heavy side, so be sure to ask man­ager and co-owner Núria Gib­ert (Gaig’s daugh­ter) for rec­om­men­da­tions based on your pref­er­ences. Rec­om­mended is the seafood fideuà, a tra­di­tional Cata­lan paella-like dish that uses noo­dles in­stead of rice, as well as squid ink for a shock of unc­tu­ous­ness and colour.
