Tucked into the corner of Jiak Chuan Road ('esquina' translates to 'the corner’ in Spanish), this restaurant boasts a raw, industrial vibe, and features a long counter with bar stools that wrap around an open kitchen. Get ready for a sea-focused Mediterranean feast, best embodied by one of Esquina's classics — a rich, creamy sea urchin, crab and lobster bisque with smoked herring roe and sea grapes ($22), served in the visually astounding sea urchin shell. Follow this with the Grilled Spanish Octopus ($28) that's first sous vide to obtain tenderness, charred for a smoky flavour and served with Jerusalem artichoke, burnt onion and oyster leaf. Don't leave without digging into the epic “PBJ” ($15): peanut butter parfait, banana, cherry jam, and puffed grains. You'll enjoy this unpretentious, grungy spot that screams industrial chic while watching the chefs at work too.
