The name Esquina means corner in Spanish, and this little tapas restaurant is located on the corner of Teck Lim Road and Jiak Chuan Road in Chinatown. Think modern and playful tapas dishes with influences from molecular gastronomy. You can go à la carte or sit back and let the chefs spoil you with their tasting menu. Signatures include the chorizo croquetas with piquillo mayo and the Spanish nigiri – a Bacalao brandade (salted cod) topped with roasted bell pepper disguised like a Japanese piece of sushi. We enjoyed the snacks more than the big plates, but the meal ended on a high note with two signature desserts – sangria sorbet and BBC (beer, banana, and caramel).
