Every tapas meal is not complete without the classic croqueta, a breaded, deep-fried snack. You can’t go wrong with them and the nice part that it was crispy yet not oily at all. The creamy filling of Béchamel sauce and the generous bits of flavourful jamón are indeed a perfect paring.

Cooked medium rare in a hybrid charcoal grill-oven, the lamb ribs was extremely tender and juicy that exuded a strong meaty flavour. Even if you aren’t a fan of lamb, I would say this is worth a try. Some greens have been added for good measure. A carnivorous treat.

This special takes a spin on their signature scallop dish. It’s worth noting that the scallops were not just fresh, but plump, tender and juicy too. The rich and aromatic Jamón Iberico topping and the sweet pumpkin mash sat at the bottom of the scallop were a good touch.

Paella is synonymous with Spanish food and you can find it on the menus of Spanish restaurants in Singapore. Did you know that it originated from the Valencian region in Spain? If you are at @foc_restaurant, I highly recommend that you order at least one paella dish. Probably one of the better paella places in Singapore.

So what does the FOC stand for? It means fire in Catalan language (Catalonia is a region in Spain of which Barcelona is the capital). Nope, it doesn’t stand for free of charge.

We had was the Suckling Pig and Scallop Paella featuring chunks of Segovia suckling pig, scallops and garlic aioli. I was equally impressed by this and love the idea of having succulent and tender suckling pig in my paella but I probably will order the suckling pig on its own on my next visit here. Not available during CB period.

I must say there was consistency in the rice’s texture where it was cooked al dente. Using a shallow paella pan and cooked over high heat, both dishes managed to get the socarrat. It is the crusty and crispy rice bits at the bottom, akin to the charred bits of your local claypot rice.

The paellas here are meant for sharing. The Black Mediterranean Squid Ink with Prawns & Squid Paella was pure indulgence. Eating dish was rich and flavourful where you can taste the squid ink in every mouthful. It’s topped with chunks of fresh prawns and squid, and dollops of homemade garlic aioli to give a well-rounded flavour profile. This is available for takeaway and delivery during the CB period.

Thanks to Poovan from the FOC Group, an awe-inspiring spread was delivered to my family and I last weekend. Comprising of an assortment from the FOC Group’s central kitchen (it materialised to tackle takeaways during this Circuit Breaker), we got to indulge in the best of @foc_restaurant, @foc_sentosa and @foc_pimpam, collectively named as their “Mediterranean Brunch”.

Many of my must-haves whenever I dine at FOC restaurant formed part of this meal, for eg. the Black Squid Ink Paella which happened to travel very well and tasted good even when not piping hot. Do slather it with their housemade aioli for extra oomph.

Also proving satisfying were the #tapas of soft Beef Meatballs in a slightly spicy, tangy tomato sauce, Mushroom Croquettas (these benefited from a short spell in the oven) and Tomato Bread (the elements were packed separately to ensure the bread remained crunchy till we were ready to eat).

The two mains of Pan-seared Catch-Of-The-Day and Roasted French Chicken with “Panadera” Potatoes were flawlessly executed. We enjoyed the former for its freshness and “Salsa Verde”, and the latter for its vibrant herb-rich marinade and juiciness. I thought they both went rather well with the Roasted Cauliflower.

The fact that FOC does pizzas was something new to me. Hearty in design, theirs featured a thick crust topped with “Ratatouille”, Pork Sausages and Brie Cheese, qualifying it as a meal in itself.

Dessert was a mini feast of crunchy cinnamon-and-sugar coated #Churros with 3 kinds of dipping sauce (dark chocolate, caramel and tiramisu cream) and a duo of utterly divine FOC Swiss Roll Cakes. Don’t ask me if the caramelised egg yolk and vanilla sponge filled with cream, or the black chocolate ganache with mirror glaze was better because I was torn between them.

To wash all that food down, Poovan packed a bottle of FOC Sangria Bubbles and “Chocolate Reverse Manhattan” FOCtails by @ethan_jeong. In the basket with them was yet another thoughtful gift of Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

If you feel the urge to splurge, FOC’s special “Mediterranean Brunch” is worth considering. Available Fridays to Sundays, it feeds 4 to 6 pax and can be delivered for FREE islandwide. Do tap on the link in @focrestaurant’s bio on Instagram to order or find out more.
