Serenity Spanish Bar and Restaurant, Vivo City

For Anton's weekend in Manila, Charles and I took him to Serenity Spanish Bar and Restaurant.

Below was the selection of Anton's tapas.

Gambas al Ajillo (SGD 12) - sauteed tiger prawns with garlic and olive oil

Chicken tortillas (SGD 15) - a bit bland, but maybe I am used to the cheesy type

Coca de recapte con chorizo (SGD 9) - home made flat bread with chorizo and paprika. This was great but I think I really got used to the smaller but meatier portions of the chorizos from Barcinos in Manila, or even the chorizos from Vigan.

Charles chose for us the Paella Valenciana (SGD 40 - contained saffron, chicken, Spanish chorizo, tiger prawns, squid, half shell mussels, rice). While the ingredients were well cooked, we felt that the rice mix was on the verge of being risotto-like and instead of the relatively drier, bottom-tutong ones that we were used to. Or maybe Kamameshi and Casa Armas' chewy bottom rice just spoiled me in the past and there really are simply different ways to serve it? Nonetheless, I would still recommend this.
