Sabio by the sea

My friends brought me to Sabio at Duxton for my birthday this year, so I had an inkling of what to expect at Sabio by the Sea. Namely, great food set in great ambience.

Roomy interior

Our group this time was a tad concerned that it would not be air-conditioned, on a sunny afternoon. But we realised that it did have air-conditioning at the dining tables area, despite its very open air look.

This was the view outside the restaurant. Not bad eh. 
We were a big group, so we urm, ordered a lot.  The final price was about that of going to a buffet, but the quality of food here was much higher than your usual buffet’s, and we were stuffed at the end of it too, despite the fact that tapas usually comes in small portions. 
Sausage platter, ham croquettes

Spanish omelette, lamb, and ham pizza

Squid ink paella, tomato based seafood paella
We ordered all four types of paella, but actually there were only two “flavours” – tomato-based and the squid ink-based. The other variation was whether it came with noodles or rice! The former reminded me of “chu mifen”, the kind you get in laksa…
Meatballs, Gambon, and Scallops in white wine sauce
One of the best tapas dishes for me was the scallops.  Huge, juicy, fresh.  Soaked in awesome creamy white wine sauce. The prawns (gambon) were also exquisitely fresh. And a friend who’s been to Sabio many times says it is always so.

The mussels were decked out so prettily!

Menu, Salted Caramel Lava Cake, and Churros with melted chocolate

We had these desserts to share, and whilst I’m not a fan of churros, the chocolate it came with was heavenly. Rich and dark, whilst not too sweet. Definitely a meal to remember.
