Serenity is strongly advocate for its yummylicious Suckling Pig through words of mouth and its attractive looking posters and advertisements pasted on the big pillars in vivocity. Due to its popularity, we had make efforts to go earlier for dinner, avoiding the peak period. As we approached the entrance, we were greeted in Spanish with "Hola" and was advised to wait to be seated. Within seconds of waiting, we were served by a lady. Each of us was given a menu with a dancing lady on its cover ind
Cost: S$18.80 The Suckling Pig dish(Cochinillo Asado) by itself costs a bomb and we had to skipped it. Luckily we were introduced to the promotion platter and can shared among 3-4 pax. Platter consist of 2 30cm long sausages and 1/4 of Signature's Roasted Suckling Pig with a small portion of potato among the greens. This platter was accompanied by 3 sauces. Upon having this served, the waitress had actually introduce the items and the usuage for the sauces. Well Done! The quarter of suckling pig was "cracklingly" good, especially its glorious crackling skin. Roasted to al dente perfection with succulent fleash, douse a bit of them into the flavorful sauces and enjoy. As we flipped the quarter up, what lies beneath is a bed of moist sauerkraut (sour cabbage), so simply European!
Cost: S$138 Arroz Negro (Black squid ink paella) is also another must tries. Squid ink, mussels, squid, tiger prawns, capsicum, rice were a simply a great combination. Seafood was fresh, especially prawns and the entire dish was adorn with green little peas. It was rather an expensive meal as it sums up to S$251.64 for 4 of us. I feel that price is steep, perhaps Spanish cuisine is quite niche and not that available in Singapore. Having said this, I will still patronize Serenity given if I'm there for a special purpose! Note:
(1) Plain water, cold or warm are chargable at S$1.
(2) Reservations might be needed.
(3) No outside food/drinks are allowed (I bought a bottle of juice while walking around Vivo City and since we are going for dinner, I brought that in. I was warned on that.)
