Review

Carrying lingering traces of cigar smoke, this old-timer on The Bangkung Row boasts a loyal customer base with a penchant for Old World Wines—of which there is plenty at Cava. The wine menu even includes a map pinpointing the different wine regions of Spain, from Castilla y Léon to Penedès. Allow the attentive manager, who instills confidence in most customers, to rattle off the restaurant’s signatures, but heed our advice: rather than asking for the Spanish classics such as paella (strong briny flavour) or pan con tomate (could use better bread), try the daily specials. At our time of visit, the latter included a dish of Tomates Tigre, meaty tomatoes flown in from Spain and spun into a simple but memorable salad. Wavering between thoughtful and thoughtless, the service team may offer to debone your roast chicken while also being overly pushy about ordering dessert. What we did thoroughly enjoy were the transportive tunes in the backdrop by Spanish heartthrob Alejandro Sanz.

IN THE KNOW

No two paellas are equal. Some fall on the dry side with 'socarrat' aka crispy caramelised rice on the bottom of the pan, whereas others are ‘meloso’, meaning mellow or creamy.
