Full review's at http://thehungrybunnie.blogspot.sg/2015/10/invited-tasting-revisit-don-quijote.htmlOver the years, Don Quijote has had more than its fair share of bad publicity, but it appears they've weathered negative reports of bad service, lackluster food, and Donoghue v Stevenson-type lapses. Their half-a-decade tenure in the brutal F&B scene, where Spanish restaurants are a dime and dozen these days, is evident of their staying power, and their loyal following. Tbh, Don Quijote isn't the most outstanding or exciting of Spanish restaurants, but like that trusty beat-up Toyota Corolla, the fare here is hearty, rustic, and solid. Still, Don Quijote is excellent in their treatment of seafood, so best to focus your orders on their seafood-based tapas.We had:1) Gambas Al Ajillo ($18): get the live prawns, as opposed to the regular prawns. Purportedly sweeter, these were lipsmackingly good.Highly recommended.2) Grilled Squid ($16): absolutely fantastic. Brilliantly cooked, with a smoky accent, this was a must-try.3) Chipiron ($15): perfectly tender baby squid cooked in its own ink, wonderfully nuanced.4) Tacos de Lomo al Queso Azul ($21) - tenderloin beef cubes with blue cheese dressing: The beef was cooked very well, and sauce refined, but even that couldn't mask the gamey taste of the beef.5) Paella Especial ($53 for small): commendable, but a tad forgettable. That said, the seafood was very nicely treated, and swimmingly fresh.6) Churros ($16): Delicious, these were crunchy on the outside, moist and chewy on the inside continue reading

Don Quijote is a charming man of ingenuity and chivalry in a fictional Spanish novel - which probably speaks the same for the restaurant that has adopted his name for its own. Good ambience and service are definitely a couple of traits of Don Quijote Spanish Restaurant, as well as a wide range of authentic, delectable dishes from tapas to soups to paella and desserts etc. Ken believes in quality and thus only the freshest ingredients are being used.Besides that, standards are being ensured and the team visit Spain on an annual basis to gain cultural infusion and exposure. All the framed photographs on the restaurant walls were taken by Ken and / or his team during their Spain visits. Even the music they play here comes from CDs bought from their Spain visits too.The tasting session commenced with some tapas dishes. Gambas al Ajillo (SGD$18.00) - garlic-friend fresh shrimps in olive oil was a great start, fresh shrimps retaining its springy texture very well, and the sweetness of the shrimps was sealed nicely with hints of garlic's stronger flavour.Next, we had Grilled Squids (SGD$16.00), softly saccharine, crispy around the edges and very tender; another appetiser that pleased the palate greatly.After that, the Asado de Cochinillo (SGD$89 / $169 / $329) - roasted Spanish-style suckling pig which comes in 3 different portions and you'd need to order at least 2 days in advance, subject to availability. The skin here was wafer-thin, crispy and melty, sheltering succulent, moist flesh. There was no gamey hint to it, just the gentle sweetness of the pork flesh.Following that, we had Fideua Negra (SGD$33 / $48 / $65) - a panful of shrimps, squids and pasta, cooked in squid ink sauce. The fine thin lines of pasta was a refreshing creation, and every mouthful was richly-flavoured with the luscious squid ink taste, with smoky hints penetrating the sweetness. The angel hair pasta strands were almost crispy in texture, light and easy on the palate. I enjoyed this tremendously, especially the slightly-charred pasta that stuck to the side of the pan.Next, it was Paella Especial Don Quijote (SGD$53 / 82 / 98) filled generously to the brim with an assortment of seafood, totally canopying the bed of rice beneath. Expect to be wowed by this dish comprising crispy rice, springy fresh seafood such as scallops, shrimps and shellfish, coming together to form a strong flavours burst. Seafood lovers would go crazy over this (indeed) special dish.For full review and more detailed information, please feel free to visit:http://thearcticstar.blogspot.sg/2015/09/media-invite-dinner-at-don-quijote.html continue reading

After shopping the whole morning and afternoon, my sister and I decided to grab some food in this restaurant before we continue our shopping journey. When we entered into this restaurant, we were greeted by the friendly staffs. Lots of foods are available on their food menu. We bought their chicken wings and French fries. The chicken wings are very crispy and juicy. The chilli sauce goes along with it is also very spicy but tasty . French fries are crispy but abit too oily. The restaurant is quite spacious and simple and nice. continue reading

We love this great Restaurant that reminds us so much! Basically, my hubby missed the Spanish food in Seville, Granada and I found this great place through reviews! The food there are superb, I would recommend the different tapas instead of the paellas.. there are simply too many tapas you need to try.. it comes in small portion so you have room to try more! The atmosphere is relaxing too, a relaxing yet stylish restaurant for great time! This is a memorable dining moment for me because it brings back great memories of our Spain Trip, my first long trip with Hubby without the kids, super meaningful for me! We had a great Anniversary. continue reading

Having heard many positive reviews about Don Quijote (say 'Don kwee-ho-tay'), I headed there for my primero experience with Spanish food.Warm, chewy bread rolls served alongside a tasty garlic butter dip did a decent job of quelling our appetites while waiting for our mains. While the menu warns that paellas and fidueàs take about 25 to 35 minutes to be prepared, our food arrived in about 15 to 20 minutes on a low-traffic day.I wasn't as wowed by the Paella Valenciana ($30++ for a small portion that will feed one to two persons) as I had hoped. It wasn't poorly executed- the creamy short-grain rice was thoroughly infused with the saffron stock, and the mussels and clams were pleasantly fresh and succulent. But as I dug into the bottom of the pan, I was disappointed by the absence of socarrat- the crispy burnt crust that is considered to be the hallmark of an excellent paella by many. I also found the rice too wet for my liking.We all preferred the Fideuà Negra ($30++ for a small portion, starring bite-sized strands of angel hair pasta cooked in a jet-black squid-ink sauce bursting with flavors of the sea. As with the paella, we indicated that we wanted the noodles to be cooked al dente and they turned out perfectly done.We rounded off the meal with Pudin de Pan y Manteqilla ($7++) and Pastel de Naranja y Queso ($7++). The bread and butter pudding fan in me wasn't particularly thrilled with the former; the orange cheesecake was satisfyingly rich and creamy but was, again, nothing out the ordinary. Perhaps, we should have opted for the friendly waitress' recommendation for the ubiquitous Bomba de Chocolate (molten chocolate cake). continue reading
