The main and tapas were good for sharing among 2-3 persons. Me and my friends ordered the squid ink paella ($24++), cod fish fritter balls with apple purée ($12++), Patatas Bravas (potato fritters $8++) and flaming rum brioche with chantilly ice cream ($14++). We love the presentation and food was so good. Nice place to chill out.
If you think you know chocolate, think again. We might not have Willy Wonka's chocolate river, but from Chocolate burgers (the bun is vanilla ice-cream!) to Chocolate Flambé-tini, this is the ultimate bucket-list to complete. Tag your choc-squad now!

Papa sim brought us to this supposedly renowned Spanish restaurant downtown and first I got to say the ambience is spot on. The dim lights, upbeat music and placement of decor was pretty inviting I would say :--))) we got a high table, a square one for 8 people (if you go as a couple I think you will have to share the high table with others, that being said the table is large enough for that not to be a problem) Like all Spanish tapas, there was a variety of foods, all in small portions but good for sharing and if you are the kind who likes to try anything but not too much of everything! We ordered the squid ink paella, saffron scampi paella, mushroom and ham croquette (the different types), steak, octopus, prawns, char grilled vegetables, pork belly and lamb~~~ mmm so satisfying 😛😛 price point is q high, perhaps it is more for a celebratory dinner or for after work drinks but definitely worth every cent
Tarte Tatin, re-imagined FOC style -- whole poached apple lightly glazed with caramel, on a bed of salted caramel and a buttery, short crust base. The warm apple was soft and sweet, with a hint of tartness that went down well with the salty, rich caramel and refreshingly chilly vanilla bean ice cream.
The food is good! Especially the pork belly & octopus. AND Sangria!!!!!!!!!! 😋😋
Cod fish and homemade paste- pretty good and light. Good for starters as they come in 5.
I would come back for this dish. So good! Not too dry, fresh prawns and clams, warmly served! Yummy!
Slightly dry and over cooked. But the overall composition and taste is not bad. Definitely not my favorite.
Waiter is kind enough to let us try different croquettes. I would say this is my favorite dish out of all i've tried. I totally recommend this when you're at FOC!
Whenever I have cravings for paella , FOC is the top place that comes to my mind . The paella never fails to impress me . Have visited FOC many times and food standards have been very consistent !
Fresh, large and succulent, the prawns basked in a lip smackingly garlicky sauce that was just begging to be mopped up with toasted bread.
Sous vide for 12 hours before being charcoal grilled, the paprika and olive oil dressed octopus was amiably smoky and tender within whilst boasting just the right amount of crunchy chewiness. Served on a bed of mash potato.

Technically, "Buñuelos de Bacalao" can be called "fishballs" but they're nothing like our Singapore hawker version. I guess you can say they're "a different kettle of fish" altogether - heh heh 😜
Anyway, these cod fish fritters that're fried to a gorgeous gold, were deliciously creamy and smooth within. I found the flavour of fish just right (not too strong at all) and the green apple purée a clever complement. Best eaten when they're hot for maximum gratification.
Coming in a close second to FOC's Squid Ink Paella is this saffron tinged beauty. Brimming with tender cuttlefish pieces mixed into the aromatic, wet goodness of the sofrito and broth infused rice, then topped with the sweetest scampi I've had in a while. This is a seafood lover's dream come true.
Cinnamon and sugar dusted, fantastically fluffy pillows of Torrija(or Spanish French Toast), with an indulgently custard-like core, served with homemade vanilla ice cream. Eat at your own peril, because you'll be wanting more.
