Boca, authentic Portuguese food | Singapore

I’m a big fan of Portuguese food post our road trip last year. No, I’m not talking about what you eat in Nandos. Like, the really good Portuguese food.  I found this gem behind my office by chance, and have been a big fan since.

One of my favorite dish, the Octopus leg is done amazingly well, along with many note-worthy appetizers and bar food. The steak with Portuguese sauce was good, along with the main highlight – the Portuguese tart. The Portuguese tarts is to die for, as nice as the one we have had in Belem, the original Pasteis de Belem.

Lovely fried salmon appetizer ~~~

Great ambiance, service and wine. Definitely recommended for a romantic eand ladies night.

Tendon Itsuki | Singapore

Fancy some great tendon ?  You don’t have to go all the way to Japan for it! Ginza Tendon Itsuki ; one of the best tempura place I’ve had in Singapore situated at the friendly Tanjong Pagar.

There are only 2 mains on their menu, the Specials and the Vegetarian.

Specials : 2 juicy chicken breast, 2 big prawns, with assorted vegetables.
I think you know what’s in the vegetarian option.

The art of eating at this place .. #FoodieTips

  1. You have tons of time to queue, otherwise good luck! (Go early, like 11.30am for lunch of 5.30pm for dinner. You would probably make it in time into the restaurant but they won’t take you without a full party)
  2. You don’t need to be anywhere else, because you smell like what you eat. Oil!!!  *they do provide Febreeze at the cashier counter,if it helps*
  3. They only accept cash – so don’t go without!  

PS : If you are still hungry (highly unlikely), head across the street for some Korean Bingsu (more to come about that)!
