At Ola Cocina Del Mar, your visit isn’t just about the food. The kitchen is regarded as the soul of this open concept Spanish restaurant in Singapore. That means you’ll get to watch as chefs saute and flambe their way around the stove. Seafood is the main speciality, with a heavy emphasis on the freshest seasonal produce. Standout dishes include catch of the day paella, suckling pig and Spanish pork jowl. Don’t stuff yourself silly, though.
