District 10 at Star Vista – Eat The Tapas & Smash Your Stress
District 10 Bar Tapas Restaurant allows you to smash your glass bottles, not within their shop but in a customized see-through box. All in the name of relieving your stress. If you want, there is an iPad where you can facebook your boss’s photo and smash your stress. Wonderful idea?
“Anybody you hate?” I was asked. And I thought for a while, pondered, and could not find a single person I really wanted to smash. (I love everyone in my life, even my boss). So I went back to the food.
This new tapas restaurant at the Star Vista is pretty much the place you would hang out with your colleague and friends after work/before dinner during for a Happy Hour. (Read: The Star Vista’s Complete Food & Restaurant Guide)
There are more than 35 selections of tapas and pinchos (spike in Spanish) that are made of fresh and seasonal produce to choose from. Some of the not-to-be-missed dishes include the Mini Black Angus Cheddar Cheese burger ($7), Manchego Cheese and Jamon Croquette ($8.80), and Jumbo Crab Cake ($14). Most ideal with a cool icy beer.
Since there are so many items, let me make some recommendations. My favourite of the sides is the Mini Burger, with juice tender Angus beef patty and bun that was warm and soft.
Epicure once named District’s 10’s Hoegaarden Battered Fish & Chips ($22) as one of the Top Ten Fish & Chips in Singapore, and I would concur with that. It is worthy. The beer battered fish was superiorly crunchy, even though I took some time photographing the dish before taking my bite. The fries were just as addictive and crazy good when dipped into a mixture of mint and truffles sauce.
The better news is this Tapas Restaurant is bringing back some of the popular items from the OLD District 10 menu, such as Chilli Crab Pizza, Sambal Prawn Pizza, Beef Rendang Pizza, Wagyu Beef Rendang served with pita bread and Balinese Grilled Chicken with rice.
The Soft Shell Chilli Crab Pizza ($25) made me eat more than I wanted to (like 3 slices) because the sauce was just very sweet-spicy-yummy. (Okay, there could be more sauce overall.) Topped with mozzarella cheese, fried soft shell crab, chilli crab meat and rocket lettuce, this is good to share with four other friends.
Desserts are not their strongest forte though. Let’s just say the tastes of the New York Cheese Cake ($10) and Warm Chocolate Cake with vanilla ice cream ($14) did not match up to their photogenic looks, though the District 10 Sour Cheery Sundae ($11) is probably the one you should leave with if you need something sweet and satisfying.
