Perched at Fullerton Pavilion, Catalunya Singapore is a glass-encased dome floating atop waters. What brings us there? The eclectic spread of home style Spanish tapas for Catalunya’s Weekend Brunch is possibly so famous that most people will highly recommend.
Together with Miguel Espinosa, Catalunya’s floating kitchen prepared us with a delectable range of Spanish tapas and amazing cocktails.
New Bar Manager Miguel Espinosa
Catalunya welcomes Miguel as Bar Manager with a decade of bar management experience across Europe, Argentine Republic, Spain and the United States.
Being a shy yet talented guy, Miguel talks about the science of mixing crafted cocktails using both basic and advanced techniques for Catalunya bar!
Cocktails We Loved
For one, it is his twist to the classic Bloody Mary cocktail that he has named Bloody Rosemary. It features a sous-vide of green pepper and basil in vodka. Grilled tomatoes are puréed with dried chilli, cucumber and chipotle mix before adding to the mixture. Rosemary is smoked into the vodka. Full with flavors and character.
The Dark Side. Infusing with Jägermeister liqueur, Campari liqueur and grapefruit juice topped with cava. Miguel gets this cocktail inspiration from Argentina where he used to reside.
Banana Rum Fashioned. There is a sous-vide of rum with dehydrated banana stirred well in muscovado sugar, plus bitters and dark rum. The burning cinnamon stick adds an attractive characteristic to the cocktail.
Food We Loved
Whilst we roamed with a delicious line of new cocktails, there were some picked home style tapas that we loved about Catalunya.
Famous Suckling Pig. With differing taste opinions, some may think that this will be gamey. To my surprise, it has a very crispy skin with very tender meat.
Bikini. Oozing with free flow of cheese, the mother of all sandwiches, they are filled with truffle and jamon.
Jamon Iberico Croquette. Probably, this forms one of our MUST EATs. Powerful flavors with loads of iberico.
The Torrija. Totally contented to end the meal with the overflowing sweetness of smoked milk ice-cream. We have more good news about Catalunya’s festive gourmet activities!

Catalunya will host a three-day Christmas Bingo Brunch with Passion from 25 – 27 December 2015 where we’ll show our guests what it truly means to feast and party the Spanish way!
