Grilled Octopus

$28.00 · 9 Reviews

Couldn’t decide what to eat at Amoy Street, and just randomly decided on this when we walked past it. I had previously only tried the outlet at Robertson Quay (which has since closed) and that was umpteen years ago, so I didn’t mind giving this a try. The octopus was pretty good (but then again I’m a fan of octopus and love it in general haha). The steak was not bad, but I think doneness-wise, it was a little too cooked (note: we chose medium rare). Generally, food quality was pretty decent, though there wasn’t a particular wow factor. Still, a nice place to chill out with friends especially when there is good wine (for which the distinction became stark when we went over to wine connection later on and had cheap wine😂). Rib Eye Steak (ARG)- 300g $66
Grilled Octopus $34
Choice of 2 Empanadas (we had the Hand Cut Beef and Braised spork Belly) $15
Hand Cut Chips $10
Dulce de leche Creme Brûlée and Banana Split ice cream $17
Glass of Sauvignon Blanc (Babich) $17

Had the privilege to be part of an 8-hands dinner by Chefs from Tono Cevicheria.

The grilled octopus looked a lot like scallops so I had a bit of a shock when I bit into it (yes I need to pay attention to the menu more). The grilled octopus was generously salted and paired really well with the olive’s chimichurri which neutralise did the saltiness.

As for the pork belly, couldn’t remember much but I really enjoyed the crunchiness of the boniato & the addition of avocado (because millennials love their avocado)

Had a mix of ala carte and executive lunch set. The octopus was cooked just right and was nice and juicy, not hard and chewy. Beef was cooked to our preference. Only down side is that the chips were a tad too salty for our liking (we prefer lightly salted food). Price range about S$40.

Thick, juicy coin-medallions of octopus, sprinkled with a dash of paprika, served with sweet green pea purée, and tangy mussel escabeche. It seems so simple, yet the complex flavours and techniques make this a starter so deeply satisfying.

BoCHINche will be closed end this month (last day being the 29th I think), while they prep for their new space at Amoy St. So if you're planning a visit, make it quick!

This main acted as our starter. Octopus was light and chewy, and the flavors were good. Although I prefer it done medium rare just like steaks, with a tinge of rareness in the center. Small portions, so always order more!

Grilled Octopus, Smoked Leeks & Tuna Mayo. Octopus was nicely caramelised on the outside, with a non-rubbery bite that I actually liked. #octopus #purple #potatoes #argentinianfood #sgfood #foodporn #burpple
