Reviews of good food at Gaig

Located on Stanley Street, the Singapore outpost of Barcelona's Michelin-starred Restaurant Gaig serves delish Spanish plates, with a focus on Catalan classics. While cosy, the white-washed space is inviting, and the rustic cooking is steadily winning the Burpple community over. The Paellas (from $28.20) are foolproof, but it's the Catalan dishes that are likely to lure you back. Try the flawless Stuffed Baby Calamari ($24.50), which sees the calamari stuffed with minced squid, beef, pork and egg, and slicked in a rich tomato-based sauce, and the Pig Trotter with Turnips ($19.20), a super comforting dish that features melt-in-the-mouth meat. Order the Chocolate Beignets ($12.70) for dessert. Battered, deep-fried dark chocolate ganache balls that are crisp on the outside and silky smooth within? Yes please.

This main really surprised me. It was really good and it really hit a spot. I loved the caramelised onions, potatoes (which was worth every calorie) and mustard mash which accompanies it. That's the thing about @gaigsingapore. What may sound simple on the lunch menu will come out and knocks your socks off. Nothing like a dish that is well executed.

Crispy on the skin and just about cooked on the inside. Still pink and good! Loved it and loved the accompanying sauce and oranges. I've had salmon here twice and they consistently ace it!

A refreshing starter which provided a good balance to our omelette. It's a starter that tastes of summer!

You can either choose to have 2 courses or 3. For each course, you have two choices. We decided to each choose one and share! Omelette Samfaina was delicious. The omelette was moist on the inside and in case you are wondering what Samfaina or Xamfaina is, it's basically the Catalan version of the French ratatouille. I loved it! Healthy and hearty.

Served in a Martini glass, this was one delightful and delicious Creme brûlée. Who would have thought that light cream custard, ice cream, tangy lemon syrup and caramel could taste so amazing? I truly enjoyed every bit of this sweet temptation.

This was from the set lunch menu. The salmon was grilled to perfection. Slightly crispy on the outside and moist and pink inside, this was really good. Loved the seasonal vegetables which accompanied it. Gaig has the prettiest crockery. Dining here reminds me of Spanish summers and it's a place you would want to linger for a meal.

Thankfully, the team at Gaig recommended that we try the stuffed baby calamaris. I was bowled over by it. Cooked in a rich tomato based sauce, the baby calamaris were stuffed with minced squid, beef, pork and egg. We finished this stew in no time and slurped up all the sauce. I can't wait to come back and try the other stews.

Yes, I did say that @gaigsingapore is a Spanish restaurant but we couldn't resist ordering this starter on their lunch menu. It was so good! The best mac and cheese I have eaten in a while. Truly calories worthy.

Yet another dining option and @gaigsingapore is a mighty fine one, serving Catalan specialities. Our lunch today kicked off with some bread and really superb olive oil!

These are essentially balls of pure dark chocolate ganache that have been dipped in batter and deepfried. So once you cut through the thin, remarkably crispy coating, it's nothing but silky, ooey-gooey chocolate heaven.

Michelin Starred Chef-owner @carlesgaig has a stewed Pig Trotters dish that is downright delish. Done in traditional Catalan style, it's an embodiment of comfort food with the meat cooked to sticky-mouth unctuousness and fall-apart quality.
For maximum gratification, savour it with a glass of wine like we did.

The cooking here has a rustic and homely charm which we enjoyed a lot. This classic Catalan special of Stuffed Baby Calamari was one of the dishes we ordered and it had us wiping up every bit of it in the pot.
Each little squid was delectably tender but it was what's inside that propelled it to exceptional status. The minced filling of squid tentacles, beef, pork and egg was deliciously juicy and full of natural sweetness.

The distinct rice grains possessed formidable bite – assisted by little bits of baby calamari tentacles for added crunchiness – and a home-style wok char. Elsewhere, the seafood was undeniably fresh – the clams squirted out its inner fresh brine with energetic gusto, the fish was positively Chinese in its steamed personality, and while the calamari retained its natural oceanic odour within its labyrinthine walls, it never came across as needing a bath. 4/5

Taste good, definitely better than their previous version at La Ventana.
