Grilled Octopus, Burnt Butter, Capers, Bean Purée

$27.00 · 7 Reviews

Left is served with olive oil, right is served with browned butter

There's capers but luckily it's v mild, I didn't even know which component contained capers lol

The pea puree and garlic aioli were pretty decent, octopus was on the firmer side with some crisp. Only problem is the portion, it's under seafood so you'd think it's a main but turns out it's tapas sized.

The staff will remind you about that when you order though

This was a small dish with oversized flavours. The capers and burnt butter gave the octopus so much umami. The octopus was also expertly grilled - very tender with a slight char. We were so impressed and made sure we mopped up every bit of the sauce.

Another must order. @venuebysebastian #foodporn #vscofood #eeeeeats #vsco #foodie #foodies #vscocam #food #instagood #eat #instadaily #whati8today #foodinsing #sgfoodblogger #foodphotography #eating #lunch #igfood #igfoodie #foodspotting #onthetable #feedfeed #foodstagram #sgfoodie #sgigfoodies #8dayseat #burpple

This char-grilled tentacle had a wonderful bouncy bite to it, served with a smooth white bean purée, briny capers and fragrant browned butter.
All the way up my alley 🤤


By the time this last-minute add-on order arrived at our table, I was feeling pretty full. However, after one bite, guess who was ready to plunge right in and gobble up the entire thing? Yup, this turned out to be a dish that hit all the right notes and then some!
Deeply smoky, the octopus was expertly grilled to the point where tenderness and a little bounce in the bite intersected. As juicy and naturally tasty as it was, the burnt butter sauce elevated the octopus to higher levels of satisfaction. The white bean purée and capers proved to be good complements too.
