This cosy little restaurant is homely and charming. In part credited to the gregarious familiar service. And that impressive jamon bar.
We ate:
1) Joselito Guijuelo Iberico Bellota ($25 for 25gram serving): cured for a whopping 48 months, intense and decadent but so worth the cholesterol.
2) Gambas al Ajillo ($16): fresh sweet shrimp sizzled with olive oil, fried garlic chips, and chilli pepper; that umami gravy was most sumptuous.
3) Croquetas ($12): stuffed with jamon nubbins, cream, and mash; excellent on its own.
4) Tortilla de Patata con Aioli ($10) - a thick, dense potato omelette layered with onions, and sided by aioli: passed muster, but was forgettable.
5) Huevos Fritos con Chorizo y Patatas ($18) - fried eggs with chorizo and potatoes: What I expected was a breakfast hash of sorts, but this was really just a mish-mash of thick fried chips, fried chorizo dice, and a fried egg sunny side egg, strewn together. Rather disjointed and jarring

Don't be surprised when you enter the restaurant. You will be greeted with a selection of wine displayed on the wine rack on your right. Alcohol is such an integral part of the dining culture that to the Spanish, many consider meals to be incomplete without wine or Sangria. My Little Spanish Place provides a huge selection of Sangrias and a fully Spanish wine list.

The yellow lighting adds extra coziness to the place- a feeling of comfort, warmth and a stronger sense of home. Especially love the brickwall details!

Founded by Chef Maria Sevillano in March 2010, My Little Spanish Place has been around for quite some time and in 2013,. To mark its three years, a new Jamon bar was introduced Priding themselves on their Jamon Bar, My Little Spanish Place offers five different types of cured ham which is truly a rare sight regardless of whether it is in Singapore or overseas. Most restaurants offer only one or two types of Jamon, with top-notch restaurants offering up to a maximum of three types.

Chef Edward Esmero, co-chef & partner of My Little Spanish Place, in action. Chef Edward has been with My Little Spanish Place for more than a year now. Dedicated and passionate about his job, he is extremely particular about the standard of food served, regardless of ingredients used or even, food plating. That said, 80% of the products are imported to preserve the authenticity.

We were served the Red Wine Sangria, a red wine punch flavoured with fruits. It is a typical beverage in Spain & sometimes referred to as the national beverage of Spain. I like how the fruits give the cocktail a slight citrus taste.

While most restaurants use machines for the slicing of Jamon, My Little Spanish Place still does it the traditional way- all Jamon are hand carved. Jamon carving is not as easy as it seems. A well-carved Jamon is one that is as flat as possible but most people tends to carve a 'hole'. Pictured below, Chef Edward demonstrating how to hand-carve the Jamon.

First on the menu was the Jamon & Cheese Platter. We were served two types of Jamon, namely 10 Vetas Jamon (left) and Fermin Serrano (right) together with olives, Manchego cheese & quince paste. On first look, it's probably hard to differentiate between the two types of ham but it's recommnded that you start off with the younger because the longer it has been cured, the stronger the taste. Trust your tastebud to do the job because they don't lie! I'm also impressed with the choice of cheese used. Manchego cheese tasted really light, absolutely no issues with the saltiness even if you eat it on its own. Eat the cheese with quince paste if you'd like some sweetness, they go really well together!

Warm breads were served alongside the platter. Though they were clearly not part of the main platter served, it was crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. Yes, as cliche as that may sound. Place the ham on top of the baguette to give it extra crunch but I prefer to keep things simple by eating them separately.

Next up was the Croquettas, served with Alioli (garlic mayonaise). The filling is similar to creamy mashed potato, nothing quite fanciful about this dish. It probably paled in comparison to other dishes served that night since there weren't any surprise factor.

Gambas al ajillo- Garlic prawns. The prawns are cooked in olive oil with garlic & chilli pepper. Looks are deceiving, this dish is definitely not as oily and heavy as it looks. Dip the baguette into the sauce and eat while it's warm!

Voted to be the favourite dish among the Openricers, Champinones al Horno, mushroom stacks topped with prawn & melted Mahon cheese, glazed with Sherry vinegar. It sounds like a simple dish but the simplest dish is, more often than not, the hardest to perfect. The mushrooms were done to perfection, juicy and succulent without that overpowering earthy taste. Definitely top on my list!

Next, Chef Edward prepared something that is not in the tasting menu because he wanted us to try it. It's their Tortilla de Patata con Alioli- Potato Omelette with Alioli. A very complex but interesting dish! I took small bites trying to figure out whether the potato omelette tasted more like potato or omelette and I just couldn't decide on one. The texture was similar to an omelette on the first bite but as you continue, it changes to become more similar to that of potatoes. I've never had anything like this before.

What's a Spanish meal without paella, a classic Spanish dish? Two different paellas were served, namely the Paella de la Casa and Arroz Negra. Spanish food are very much influenced by seafood because of its location along the coastal region hence both the Paellas contain seafood. Pictured below, Arroz Negra, Black Ink Paella, rice flavoured with black ink squid broth with prawns and squid and served with Alioli.

The Black Ink Paella was of the right saltiness and I like the zesty flavor after squeezing in the lemon. However, I still prefer the House Paella because the rice was more flavourful due to the variety of ingredients added.

Finally, Dessert Platter consisting of Churros, Hand-churned Strawberry Ice Cream and Chocolate Tart was served. This is Chef Edward's award-winning dessert platter, needs no emphasis on how good it is! The Hand-churned Strawberry Ice Cream is not any ordinary strawberry ice cream that you see outside. It has to be mixed once every 20 minutes, A+ for effort. I'm not a fan of chocolate but my favourite is the Chocolate Tart that's made with 68% dark chocolate. Does this tell you how good it really is?

We started off with the Platter of JAMON and CHEESE, which is accompanied with riped olives. Jamon is the spanish terms for ham and at My Little Spanish Place, they do serve 5 different kinds of Spanish Ham, ranging from 18 months old ones to 48+ months old ones! Today, we got to try out the 1.5yrs old ham and the 2.5 years old ham. Personally prefer the older (2.5yrs old) one, which has a stronger taste! Goes well with baguette and cheese!

Chef Edward personally plated our personalized Dessert Platter, which includes the 3 signature desserts at My Little Spanish Place - Churros, Chocolate Cake and Hand-Churned Strawberry Ice Cream! Churros, served warm with cinamon sugar and warm chocolate. Churros here are just in the right size, just 2 mouthful and its gone! Chocolate Cake, served in a lollipop stick. Verdict? Real chocolaty! As for the Strawberry Ice Cream, I've to definitely give a special mention to it! Its hand-churned, in other words hand-made from scratch! Oops. I forgot to ask if Chef Edward did participate in the upcoming Gelato World Tour 2015? If yes I'd definitely be there to support!

Photo with Restaurant Manager of My Little Spanish Place (left) and Chef Edward (right). Both are very friendly and approachable dudes! All in all, my experience at My Little Spanish Place had been a real pleasant one, especially with the absolute standard of Spanish food and quality service - staffs were really very prompt in their service, very alert as well. Just that I've to asked for a change of plate when my plate is pretty unclean, perhaps a point to take note maybe? Otherwise, thumbs up for its service!

The restaurant is turning itself to a Jamon Bar, which is unheard of in Singapore as a leg of jamon cannot keep for long once it is been used. It served 5 different types of Jamon at the counter, with the oldest about 5-6 years old to the youngest about 18 months old and each costing about an average of $8000. The jamon has to be craved as flat and straight as possible and staffs have to be trained to do it.

Overall the food is great. But it would be great to come in group, in order to try out more dishes, as dishes as Paella is huge in serving. Besides having a great meal, one also could purchase rice, olives, cheeses and other items imported from Spain at the counter too.

I was very fortunate to be invited to dinner at My Little Spanish Place by OpenRice. It was an exquisite, educational experience for me. This is the only place I know of in Singapore for genuine, fine Spanish cuisine.
Our first dish was jamón with cheese and olives. We had finely cut slivers of two kinds of jamón: jamón ibérico (from the special breed of a black, ibérico pig) and jamón from a white pig. Neither was anything like regular deli ham. The colour, for one, was different: the jamón ibérico, in particular, was a lightly glistening, deep pinkish purple, with fine whitish veins. The taste: delicate, multifaceted, unique. And very tender. The fat is light on the tongue: it melts in your mouth, which indicates it is mainly healthy monounsaturated fat. A delicious gem! The rare and prized jamón ibérico is a must-have if you're here.
You can view legs of ham hanging in the kitchen. Choose from various types of ham, from different breeds of pigs and regions, and the chef cuts it off for you. He also makes roast pork much like char siew in Chinese cuisine, with a crusty skin. It must be ordered at least 2 days in advance.
Our second dish was croquettas - lightly fried jamon-stuffed creamy croquettes, served with garlic mayonnaise sauce. I loved these: the crisp tender crust - no greasiness - is made of flour and milk, not water. It was the perfect foil to the rich smooth filling, which does double duty to complement the intense and complex flavours of the jamon.
Our third dish was Gambas al Ajillo (prawns in garlic olive oil). A traditional house favourite, this is shrimp cooked in olive oil with garlic and chili pepper and served with slices of French loaf. A nice transition to ocean freshness and sweetness, played off by the contrasting pungent and aromatic flavours of the accompanying ingredients.
Next was my favourite: Champiñones de horns (Garlic Mushrooms), which are tender black mushroom stacks topped with shrimp, richly flavored in garlic and olive oil, and served piping hot in sherry vinegar. The mushrooms were oozing with their natural juice, having been grilled on high heat. Another excellent choice of a simple yet naturally tasty dish, prepared in a way that accentuates the natural flavour of the main ingredient.
Then came the tortilla which was a potato omelette, made of potato slices cooked in 6 egg and then when firm, sliced into rectangular pieces that look like nonya tapioca cake, and served prettily on little wooden sticks. It is not on the restaurant's extensive menu but I think it should be. It had a slightly firm custard texture with a thin browned skin on top. The chewy potato and the soft egg textures were an interesting combination. A mild and pleasant tasting intermission after those successive bursts of voluptuous, umami flavours and before our final savoury dish.
We had two kinds of paella: Paella da la Casa (white) and Arroz Negra (black rice). I enjoyed both very much, but preferred the amazing looking squid ink infused paella.
The Paella de la Casa is the restaurant's House Paella. It is is a full-flavored recipe made with special ingredients including black mussels, chorizo, prawns, and chicken. The Arroz Negra (Black Ink Paella, literally ‘black rice’), is flavored with a black squid ink broth and contains prawns and squid and served with a side of alioli. Both were absolutely delicious and deeply satisfying. The rice was plump and its full flavour set off the freshness of the seafood ingredients.
Finally, came the dessert platter, consisting of
1) Tarta de Chocolate (Chocolate Tart): A triple layer of crumbly crust, a truffle-like interior, and a shiny glaze, served with the restaurant's homemade strawberry ice-cream, which was more like sherbet and tasted homemade - i.e., natural, light, and made with real strawberries. Perfect accompaniment to the opulent chocolate.
These out-of-the-world chocolate tarts are fortunately available for takeout.

The chocolate tart would have been a heady, heavenly conclusion to our wonderful feast but there was more:
2) Churros con Chocolate: A star-shaped dough pastry sprinkled with cinnamon sugar and served with warm chocolate. The churro was very good: crispy on the outside and light and soft inside. A perfect tantalizing concoction of textures when dipped in the chocolate.
This culinary experience of gorgeous flavours is fittingly accompanied by cold, refreshing fruity sangria. My Little Spanish Place is a cosy, warm place. Its interiors are elegant yet homely and comfortable. It is ideal for an intimate or a family or communal meal. Dining in Spanish culture is a shared affair, very much like in our culture. And this is the perfect place and menu for that. I would love to revisit and continue exploring the very best of Spain's rich and varied cuisine, which My Little Spanish Place offers.

a) Croquettas

The skin is soft and not crispy despite being fried. It tast like normal mash potatoe being fried. The garlic mayonnaise sauce taste normal. Overall it taste normal and nothing special. I will have rated it higher if the skin is crispy and they increase the taste level of this dish.

b) Gambas al ajillo

This is a prawn base dish fried in a nice sauce and serve with a piece of hard bread. The sauce is very nice and flavourful and I enjoy it very much. The prawn is nice fresh and delicious. Yummy !

c) Champinones al horno

This is a tapas dish as well with a hard piece of bread at the bottom, on top of it are 2 nice big juicy mushoom, melted cheese, a piece of prawn and lastly some vegetables and sauce. This is my favourite dish as the mushroom is very nice juicy and tender and the entire combination goes well with each other and it taste very good. One word of advice slice the tapas into half before eating as it is very hot !

d) Paella de la casa

It is a seafood base yellow rice dish serve nicely with extremely well decorated fresh oyster, prawns, squid and chicken. One look and the dish looks extremely impressive amoung all the other dish I had eaten so far tonight ! However the yellow rice stick onto the base of the pan and got a bit of a "chao ta" burn taste. The cook should have stir the rice while cooking. Cooking everything without stiring the rice maintain the overall beautiful outlook but it cause the rice to stick to the pan at the bottom which is not good. There is a round thing that looks like the Chinese bak kua place ontop of the dish and it taste very saltish so do not eat it. The prawns are fresh as usual and the yellow rice taste a bit saltish.

e) Torilla di patata

It is a bonus dish serve by our wonder nice friendly chief. It is basically a mesh potatoe omlette that is cut into a nice cake looking shape. The taste is really too overwhelming and over powering and I feel like throwing out after eating it. I think they should seriously consider removing this from the menu.

f) Dessert platter

It consist of 3 items. One is a piece of hard looking brown deep fried stick of floor coated with sugar, dip into a hot dark chocolate sauce. Next is a scoop of strawberry ice-cream and lastly is a small piece of chocolate tart. The brown stick of floor is nice and crispy and blend well with the dark chocolate dip. After I eat finish eating the brown stick I even use my spoon to finish up the dark chocolate dip as it taste very nice, delicious and smooth. The strawberry ice cream is hand made according to the chef as he need to keep on stiring the ice-cream every few minutes. It taste a bit sour like those healthy sorbet ice-cream but not too sour and it taste just right. Next is the tiny chocolate tart it is also rich in chocolate and it is nice and delicious. Everything taste good and the only problem with this dish is that the proportion is a bit tiny ! If they increase the size and proportion I will give it a higher score.

When I walked inside the restaurant located in the Bukit Timah neighbourhood at 6.45 p.m., all of us were being self introduced and dinner will be served from 7.00 p.m. onwards.

Therefore, I managed to snap some photographs while waiting for the waiters/waitresses to be served.

We were greeted warmly by the executive chef himself and we knew that My Little Spanish Place is expanding. To mark turning four and half years old, this restaurant has introduced a Jamon Bar showcases legs of Jamon flown in from Spain, which are carved with each order.

We had their famous aged hams and manchego with warm breads as starters. The dried meats were very good. They were all beautifully presented and tasted exquisitely. The restaurant was generous with their bread.

Summary: This is the most authentic home-style Spanish restaurant I've had so far in Singapore. Food is fantastic, while price is reasonable (for SG!). Interiors are Spanish-homely and cosy.
*Pros* are that the food is fantastic, reminds me of my trips to Seville and Madrid! Tapas are reasonably priced (for SG) and good with the flavour, not too salty. The jamon (Spanish ham) platter with five different selections was simply amazing. The main dishes are also pretty well done. The best thing we had that night were the Paellas: House and Squid Ink; Rice was well done (and made with real Spanish rice I might say!) and absorbed with the juices of the accompanying meats and seafood, which I feel thoroughly brings out the best medley in flavours. The party table beside us ordered a whole suckling pig (!), which I understand needed a prior 24 hours advance reservation. Oh yes, they also have a great Spanish wine selection, which I understand the owner imports the various variety by himself.
*Cons* are that this place is not easy to book during the weekends, and service staff seems limited so they are always busy. I like that the manager and the chef do try to engage with the patrons when they have the free time.
Nonetheless, the restaurant brings out the great charm and authenticity of real Spanish food, and the interiors are cosy and homely. The price is also pretty reasonable too, for Singapore. Would definitely go back for more!
Recommended: Tortilla (egg and potato omelette), Jamon (Spanish ham) platter, chorizos (spicy sausages), albondigas (meat balls), pulpo (marinated octopus), gambas (prawn in spicy garlic sauce), clams and mussels, asparagus and garlic mushrooms, house paella (I hear the seafood paella is great too!). Yes - we had a party of six so we ordered quite a bit. Next time will try the suckling pig and the escargots!
Other Info. : Reserve your seats, especially for dinner during the weekends! And don't expect super classy butler service, this is a upscale casual restaurant.

The house paella was tasty: saffron-scented rice grains with ingredients like prawns, chicken, squid and peas.

We had "churros con chocolate" and "fried milk", light and different from the usual heavy cheesecakes and lava cake. High recommended!


Lastly, do not forget their cava sangria ^^
