This was so good, I loved how the chorizo lifted the dish to a different level. A classic which transported me back to Spain.

This soup is a real gem and it totally swept me off my feet. The egg complemented the cold soup well and I really enjoyed my soup with the crunchy leek chips. This was a starter on the set lunch menu and I love how their menu changes every week. One may say that with a choice of only 2 starters, 2 mains and 2 desserts, is that too small a choice? My verdict, you don't need a large selection when you rock at every option you offer!

I love the way they cook it here. Their steaks are flavourful and done just right, I had mine medium rare and I also like how their vegetables are not an afterthought. They may look plain but each bite packs in flavour.

With no idea what to expect, we were so pleasantly surprised by these fishcakes, smooth and yet with a slightly firmer texture than a mousse, they were delicious.

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.

Dessert with the mostest. Honestly it looked like a tall fluffy chiffon cake, understated and carelessly plated, but when in fact, it's the yummiest and most dense orange ice cream ever. It's like having an whole orange, only creamier. Definitely a wow dish for me, to end a splendid dinner.

The shinning star of the night. Amazing smooth, and ridiculously creamy. The Unami flavour is strong, deep and impactful. Looked very heavy, when in fact it is very light. The chef's off-the-menu item, that should not remain off-menu! It is just to gorgeous, is sight, smell and taste.

This got to be one of the yummiest paella in Singapore, that I have tasted. Chewy but fluffy enough, with amazing Unami flavour in each and every grain. Huge chunks of succulent lobster, scattered so nonchalantly, to show that it is not the star of the dish. And indeed, it isn't. The Chef have done such a fantastic job of making a good pan of paella that those juicy lobster chunks are bonus!

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.
