Wining, Dining and Chilling out at Wine Connection Tapas Bar & Bistro

Monday, 6 March 2017


Not new to the affordably priced wines they have to offer here, we decided to pick this bistro-bar on Friday night to celebrate a bestie's sweet 30th birthday.

Wine Connection Tapas Bar & Bistro offers an extensive wine list and a selection of over 30 wines by the glass, plus, 10 exclusively imported draft beers. While it's seemingly big enough with 350 seats both indoor and al fresco, though you'll often still see people queuing to get a seat.


I've provided the reservation details all the way at the bottom of the post. But just note that they are quite strict on keeping to your reservation time as they do have a long queue that keeps piling on so please try to be on time!






We went al fresco, because we didn't want to wait for an indoor seat. But well - what did you expect - it being Singapore, al freso was a warm idea. Literally. We were warm, though not to the extent of perspiration.

Other than the lovely wines - they also serve up some lovely food.

We started with the Cheese platter ($16)- 150gm of imported cheese with freshly baked bread, a Spanish Style Gambas ($12) - sauteed prawns cooked in garlic and topped with paprika, virgin olive oil and chilli, best to enjoy with bread that is also freshly toasted.

Then we head for the Parma ham & rocket pizza ($16), which were one of the chef recommendations in the menu. The pizza was thin crusted and so delicious. We finished it in minutes. I also side ordered a Grilled salmon fillet ($24), their savoury grilled salmon was nicely done and served with rocket salad and white wine sauce. Although I didn't really dig the white wine sauce much... I preferred to have my salmon plain.

From memory, we enjoyed the lamb shank ($23) so we ordered it again this time round. Unfortunately, we didn't enjoy the lamb shank as much as we previously did. Somewhat a drop in standard. While still tender, the taste was somewhat... off. (and that made me a sad bunny.)

Lastly, we also had the Spanish paella (for 2 to share, $32), which featured a creamy paella chock filled with mussels, prawns, spicy chorizo and chicken drumsticks.







All in all, it was a lovely place to chill out, with the food being more of a hit than a miss. We also enjoyed our 2 bottles of red wine along with the food.

Here's wishing you a very happy 30th birthday, my sweet bestie!
