Cartafata

Seafood in da bag with one whole seabass as a centrepiece, littered with prawns, clams, squid and mussels! At $20 odd bucks, this is truly a value for money dish! #burpple

Most of the dishes are fusion of Asian (more of Thai style) and Spanish cuisine, creative ideas to draw the crowds to accept Spanish cuisine!

Tapas
- Chorizo Sausage🌭
- Pineapple Chicken🍍
- Beef Skewers🍗
- Lamb Kebab🍖
- Grilled Squid🐙
- Pork Belly🍖
- Beef Cheek🥩

The tapas are served in tink-kat, small bites and it’s cheaper if you order more, food for sharing definitely!

The sausages are norm, firm and as you chew along, the taste get stronger, decent and good to eat with a drink or two...

The pineapple chicken is really tender and the chicken is being stuffed inside the green chilli, but fret not, it’s not spicy, they complement each other well, with asparagus as the base, well designed dish indeed!

The beef skewers with lemongrass as the stick, very nicely cooked, the beef is juicy with hint of lemongrass aroma, nice! (I don’t eat beef, that’s what I gathered from fren)

The lamb kebab with pumpkin as the base, the big chunk of lamb is juicy and tender with a light rosemary taste, complemented with pumpkin (sweet) to neutralise the heavy taste, yum!

The grilled squid is like what you can expect from for a bbq squid, but good thing is this is not chewy like a rubber band, good to go with beer...

The pork belly is well prepared without that unpleasant pork smell! However, the texture is a little like firm jelly, a little firmer than the usual braised pork belly, and it’s not like sio-bak, definitely not crispy, it’s the in-between, not mushy and not exactly crispy, I think pork belly lover would love this. I’m not a fan of pork belly, probably skip this the next time...

The beef cheek are soft and tender, nicely braised, the sauce and the mashed potato, heavenly matched! (I don’t eat beef, that’s what I gathered from fren)

Mains (Generous Portion!)
- Paella🦐
- Cartafata🐟

Paella is made up of seafood, chicken, chorizo, bomba rice, seafood and saffron bisque, taste of ocean indeed!!! Good for sharing!

Cartafata is made up of sea bass, mixed seafood, and it comes with Thai style pineapple rice. I like the sauce, much of a Thai style, spicy, sour and refreshing, definitely worth coming back for!

I don’t mind coming back again for their mains, really value-for-money, just look at the fresh seafood and fish! Omo, just delish!!!

Desserts
- Panna Cotta🍼
- Pandan Churros🥖
- Coconut Ice Cream🥥
- Lava Cake🍫

Panna cotta with lemongrass aroma, neutralise the jelak feel from all the milky dairy taste, nice combi!

Pandan churros, hint of pandan smell, not very sweet, dip inside the warm chocolate sauce, can’t stop once you start eating it...

Coconut ice cream with basil granita, in aw that the ice cream doesn’t really melt even after rounds of phototaking by us... interesting combi with basil granita (acquired taste) and chocolate soil base, not bad...

Lava cake, the warm chocolate oozing out from the cake, eating it with the soft milky vanilla ice cream, heavenly can! Quite decent, won’t go wrong ordering this... Sadly, the vanilla ice cream just melted too fast, didn’t managed to take a nice photo of it...

Drinks
- Nin Jiom🥃 (Pi Pa Gao + Bourbon + Lemon + Honey + Mint)

This really taste like pi pa gao! For PPG lover, this is definitely your thing (but with alcohol content that is)! The strong aroma of PPG and the refreshing lemon, this just doesn’t taste like alcohol at all, for those who are afraid of hard liquor taste, fret not! But that doesn’t mean that the alcohol is not “gao” enough, I turned red soon after the first few sips...=X

Note: Colourful and brightly lit cafe-like tapas bar, nice ambience and cosy to go in a group and chat/catch-up...

Although the shellfish and prawns were a little over cooked, the whole seabass was pleasantly fresh.
Served with a large portion of Thai pineapple rice, this mains could sufficiently feed 2. Their Asian-inspired Tapas were also good options for more varieties in smaller portions. Add a few selections of the Tapas and the meal would be a hearty one.

Apart from their well-portioned tapas, Scissors Paper Stove's generous mains would certainly make your mouth water. Stealing the spot light, the unanimous favourite at our table was the lavish Cartafata ($28) one of their signature dishes that features an entire sea bass and mixed seafood stewed in a sealed bag.

Locking in all the goodness, the flavours were spot-on with the use of herbs and uber-fresh produce. The unique citrusy accent of lemongrass also spicing up the natural sweetness of the fish and the tanginess of the tomato-based sauce. Do, however, expect a 25 to 35 minutes wait upon order. Yet well worth it, don't forget the Thai-styled Yellow Fried Rice served on the side; making it a very hearty meal as well as a superb item to share with 2 to 3 friends.

Sealed in a bag with spices and herbs like lemongrass, lime leaves and fresh seafood, this is one aromatic bag of happiness for all seafood lovers. Unlike the typical crab in a bag where the seafood are cooked before it is dumped in the bag, what Cartafata does is that all the seafood are first thrown in the bag, and then baked together. Fun fact: Cartafata is the name of the bag itself! This method enhances the flavours of the ingredients, and is served along with Thai fried rice on the side! Definitely a hearty meal you can share with your mates over conversations ☺️

Will recommend the Cartafata -
Fresh sea bass and mixed seafood oven-stewed in a sealed bag, paired with Thai Yellow Fried Rice.

They change their menu quite regularly, so there is always something to look forward to.

And they are having an opening promo of one free tapas with every main course ordered now till 15May! My favourite tapa is this tantalising lamb shoulder kebab marinated in lemongrass and comes with roasted pumpkin. Another alltime fave is the minced beef skewers ($11.50) flavoured with rosemary and homemade thai-inspired chilli. The drinks are pretty interesting here too. In frame, the Almond Bandung Cream (aka ABC/$8) and Goji Fizzball ($8). Check out their mains especially the spanish paella ($28) and Cartafata ($36). Located at 9 Teck Chye Terrace.

🎉 The new tapas restaurant with an Asian touch. Spot the tapas in nostalgic Tingkats (tiered Chinese lunchbox), brought back beautiful memories from the times where food are packed in tingkat in Singapore. Besides the Signature tapas, you can also expect mains, desserts and handcrafted cocktails. My favourite main go to Cartafata with Thai yellow fried rice as a side. Fresh seafood with spices like lemongrass all wrapped in a bag. It is prepared similarly to sous vide style. All flavours are sealed in the bag while the seafood remains tender and flavourful. 😋 Some of the must try tapas at Scissors Paper Stove will be Indian Lamb Kebab and Beef Skewers tapas. The kebab had a meltingly tender texture and a good amount of flavour with crunch from the lantern chilli and onions. The beef skewers are well-marinated and grilled to perfection and come with Thai style homemade chilli sauce. 😋
