we also ordered one of our favourite spanish dishes – black squid ink paella ($53 for 2 pax) to share. there was a generous amount of prawns, squid and mussels in it! :) and they were huge! especially the prawns. the rice was also fluffy and moist! such a delicious dish :D totally worth staining our teeth for this :P hahaha. although the good thing was that it actually wasn’t very severe! (:
we also ordered some tapas to complement our two main dishes. the Pulpitos ($18.80) was a rather scary dish :p with whole baby octopus fried with garlic and olive oil. it’s really quite scary seeing this and putting it in your mouth!! but the sauce was sublime ^^ i just happily slurped it up hehe. i must say that Serenity’s food is quite pricey though!! :O but at least the portions justified the price. this size of tapas is larger than the general sizes you find in typical spanish restaurants. but $19 for tapas when i can get a full meal with that same amount of money? you can be sure that this is a once-in-a-long-while indulgence.
we also had the sauteed brussels sprout with serrano ham ($18.80). this was a simple dish, and the ham added a lovely savoury flavour to it.
we all bought drinks to complement our food! :D i absolutely loved my Sangria Pantera Rosa ($16) which was made of red wine, raspberry schnapps, mixed berries, mint and tonic. i was worried that it’ll be too sweet because of the berries, but it turned out to be such a lovely combination with the mint that helped to balance out all the flavours.
and we just had to order some Spanish desserts to complete our meal! ;) the churros ($10.80) were pretty disappointing in my opinion though! as in the churros themselves were alright, but the hot chocolate was pretty watery! :(
i enjoyed the pastel de chocolate ($12.80) much more! it was a cashew nut brownie served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream! (: a pretty interesting brownie – i liked the crunch which the nuts contributed to it, and it was moist for the most part, except my last mouthful of it which was a bit of a downer. other than that, i always the classic combination of brownie+vanilla ice cream ;)
