A celebration of the bounties of the sea, glossy ebony tendrils of capellini imbued with a subtle brininess came adorned with dollops of plump, sweet uni. Like supplicants around their deity, baby squid frozen in their final poses came encased in deep-fried shells of crunchy batter. Everything comes together in a whirlwind of gastronomic delight, making this one of the standout plates that is a must order.

Don’t expect strictly classics at modern Spanish restaurant Lumbre. Instead, you can look forward to Mediterranean flavours with a twist, such as this luxe riff on croquettes which sees enrapturingly crisp and crunchy on the outside, creamy within spheres decadently decorated with fresh uni.

@lumbre.sg brings the 🔥 with tender octopus and fatty hunks of Ibérico pork belly sunk into a seductively smoky and savoury chorizo foam. This variation of a Spanish stalwart is the crucible by which I judge Spanish restaurants by and it more than passes with flying colours.

Beehoon immediately comes to mind on the first bite, except this has been supercharged with flavour having been soaked in a tomato-pepper sauce and seafood stock for spoonfuls of smoky umaminess. Bits of tender calamari added texture to the soft noodles, and the smoked eel was lush, tender and sweet.

A thing of beauty – a golden block of impossibly fluffy French toast, its edges charred for that slight crisp texture against the eggy softness of the rest of it.

It’s paired well with a boozy rum & raisin ice cream, as well as a refreshing fruit coulis.

A first for me, this unusual combination worked surprisingly well. Folds of brûléed custard were draped across flame kissed segments of juicy pineapple, the tinge of vanilla and creaminess of the former contrasting nicely with the chunky and sweet fruit.

I love the meatiness as well as smokiness the grill imparts on cauliflower. At @lumbre.sg the charred florets are dressed in lashings of creamy black tahini, pomegranate, currants and finely chopped chives for a deliciously vivacious vegetarian alternative.

Another standout, the smoulderingly good beef short rib practically melts in your mouth with unctuous, fatty deliciousness. Smoked cauliflower puree accentuates the savoury factor even more so, playing up the meatiness of the cuts of the beef with echoes of the wood-fired grill.

Probably more at home in an Italian than a Spanish restaurant, the slightly out of place pasta plate still garners a thumbs up from me for its beautiful presentation and punchy flavours.

3 types of seafood are stuffed into the toothsome pasta cylinders and delicately wrapped in impossibly translucent zucchini ribbons. These dainty parcels sit in a pool of frothy and umami bisque, which made for addictive eating.

Diligently executed French duck sauced with a light jus, served with apple puree and a lovely charred confit endive that was soft and of a mellow anise flavour. It's not particularly Spanish, but certainly quite delish.

Experience diverse culinary landscapes at @lumbre.sg, amongst them a dish where manchego cheese mousse is married with a buttery, delicate house-made foie. Perfectly playing off the richness are slices of apple and tangy apple purée, as well as a scattering of pistachio crumb for crunch. Goes great schmeared on the light and crispy crystal bread it's accompanied by.

Another great sharing plate at @lumbre.sg, - salty, meaty slices of grilled chorizo on mini crispy cheese toasts, drizzled over with squirts of nacho cheese-esque Mexican cheese. Major munchies alert for these lil guys punching way above their diminutive portion size.
