ESQUINA, JIAK CHUAN ROAD

IMG_0667I came to know about Esquina online via the food blogging community. It is opened by Michelin Star Chef Jason Atherton who was Gordon Ramsay’s protégé.

IMG_0668You should get seats inside so you can see the chefs in action. That’s the head chef, Andrew Walsh, who was a former Pollen Street Social executive sous chef for Jason Atherton.

IMG_0669For starters, we had the Iberico Bellota.

IMG_0671Spanish Breakfast – Slow-cooked egg, bravas sauce, potato & crispy iberico. This was so good! It’s one egg dish I wouldn’t mind paying $18 for.

IMG_0677Roast lamb rump, black olive polenta, baby romaine, anchovy chimichurri. I’m not a huge fan of lamb but this was so tender and juicy, I could definitely finish it on my own.

IMG_0678Honey wings with granola, oats and truffled milk. This dish was a chef’s special. I decided to order it because I was curious and intrigued about the combination. It really surprised me because it tasted really unique (in a good way).

IMG_0679If you order desserts, there will be a complimentary Sangria sorbet to wash your palette.

IMG_0681Chocolate tea ice cream, sponge sacher, pickled blackberries, hazelnut praline to end our meal.

I really enjoyed the food at Esquina and will definitely go back for more.

Note: Esquina does not take reservations so be there early for the first seating!
