son was back for summer holidays. this evening we went to FOC for a family dinner on 27.8.2015.^^

restaurant has a chic ambience. it is supposed to be for fine food & fun dining from barcelons. for us, it’s tapas.

FOC supposed to be fire in catalan.

chorizo & egg was a good start. its was a good tasty dish, the egg gave it a silky texture. maybe its a bit like my spanish omelette but deconstructed, no?

like the ham croquettes. at first taste, the mushroom croquettes had much more intense flavours & bested the ham croquettes by comparison. but i tried the ham croquettes again & it had a very nice lingering flavour. i like both. ^^

the patatas bravas, a deep-fried potato dish was very good too. really well done enjoyable dish.

the pork trotters carpaccio was delightful. especially with the condiments & sauce it came in.

the slow braised octopus was excellent too. taste & texture wise, it was almost comparable with the very good ones i tried recently – the grilled cotopus dish at da lucathe octopus dish at zafferano& i still prefer the tako kakiage at mikuni. ^^

i think this squidink paella is the best of all squidink i had. really flavourful, smooth & buttery. good enough for us to order a second serving. i think it is better than (maybe) the dish i squid risotto i had at follia (which was outstanding). & my own very good squidink pasta. kith’s squidink pasta would be quite behind by comparison.

the first serving of scampi fiduea alio olio was excellent, very sweet, tasty, intense. unfortunately there was a hair in it! restaurant did the right thing & replaced it with a new dish. again unfortunately the new dish was not tasty as before. i guess hair made a difference to the taste?


rack of lamb was pretty ok. it was very tender yes, but actually flavour-wise, my own pistachio crusted rack of lamb was a lot better!

the iberico pork rack was superb! not only it was fork tender & yet not sinewy, it was very flavourful, excellent!

the hanging sculpture.

daughter wanted to try the chocolate fantasy. it’s the chocolate bomb i thought of trying for my anniversary dinner but didn’t.

we tried the apple tart. it was ok, nothing special & can do without. the french toast was good. looked at a dessert i may try myself at home.

i think minus the drinks it was about S$50pax. not cheap but doable.
