& the food at Chug Chug? Not half bad.

While not photogenic, I find the batter-fried oyster mushrooms with curry cream ($13++) fairly unique, though I'm not quite sure if we enjoyed it so much only because we were starving.

Beurre's Oyster Happy Hour: Mon - Sat, 5-7PM. With a minimum order of 2 drinks, you can get these babies at $2++ a pop. Do read the fine print, though - with a minimum purchase of 6 oysters & maximum of 12 per bill, there isn't much wiggle room IMHO. I reckon a table of 2 diners would optimize this perfectly.... Or a single solo yolo diner like myself πŸ˜‚

So these oysters... They are the bomb, man. While not the plumpest, they are juicy enough for my liking. Slightly creamy & with a tinge of brineyness - which is the flavour profile I enjoy. I ordered 6 oysters for myself & tbh as I sit here typing this, I'm tempted to order 6 more to finish on my own...

I enjoy my oysters best with a squeeze of lemon & a nice glass of wine. Pleased to find that Beurre's drinks menu has some pretty affordable options. I chose the Delle Venezie Pinot Grigio. A light & fruity one, it has hints of pears & apples, which sounds easy to drink - & that it was. It also complemented the oysters nicely, warranting a double thumbs up from me πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»

The complimentary focassia bread served before our mains was a great start to the meal. Served warm & with 3 varieties of butter to keep it interesting. I like how there's enough of each one to stick to 1 butter should you find your favourite.

I rarely order soups because they disappoint easily. However, this being listed as a "Homemade Mushroom Soup" ($4.50 nett) piqued my curiosity.

Even though it isn't the chunky variant, I was pleasantly surprised by it's earthy flavours (which I tend to look for in mushroom soups), & a slight cheesiness that gave this soup an added dimension without any MSG-laden saltiness.

The only other soup on the menu, the French Onion Soup ($4.50++), will be the next one I try when I return. I kind of have my hopes up 😍

Disappointed with the Old Bay Onion Rings ($12++). Too greasy, & too large that it's difficult to eat. Not much reason for me to order this again.

Service was also pretty poor. Each time I spoke to the waitress, e.g. "Can I have a glass of white wine?", she wouldn't respond verbally or even nod her head in acknowledgement. She would just purse her lips, then walk away. πŸ™„

The Vieires en Salsa de Cava ($22++) is a dish from their hot tapas menu; the moment I saw SEA SCALLOPS with sparkling white wine sauce, I was sold.

It wasn't too bad, but I felt it could be executed better. Not sure why, but the sea scallops weren't as hot as I'd like them to be when I tucked into them. Texture-wise, they were slightly too rubbery compared to what I'm used to.

However, the sauce was simply divine. I actually found myself repeatedly dipping my octopus leg into this sauce towards the end of my meal!

The El Cerdo ($25++) is also from the Josper Grill - herb-marinated pork belly with sautΓ©ed potatoes & arugula. Be careful when you dig in to the potatoes, they're piping hot! But oh so good, big on flavour & personally for me, I am happy there are some lean pieces for me to pick on...

From the Josper Grill, El Pulpo ($24++) is a dish of grilled octopus leg is served sliced up with a sprinkle of paprika, on a bed of "viola" mashed potatoes.

The mash didn't do much for me as it was a little too lumpy for my liking, but the octopus was well done, not too rubbery nor briney.

The lemon served on the side was actually on the hot plate, which I thought was odd because it was too freaking hot to squeeze immediately. πŸ˜‚

Chill vibes in the evening, but I can imagine it'd get pretty warm in the afternoons in the sweltering heat at this open-air dining establishment.

Nonetheless, fairly scrumptious tapas & Sangria - made even better with Burpple Beyond. Don't expect it to fill you up though - it's tapas, after all.

The Otah Omelette ($8+) was impressive - we ordered one to share, but ended up ordering another because it was just that good & popular!

The otah was sufficiently spicy without killing your taste buds, & the egg omelette was fried nicely without being too oily such that you can eat it on its own. Definitely recommended πŸ‘πŸ»

The Truffle Fries were a good appetizer; fragrant & fried to a crisp, just like a good bowl of fries should be done. Happily munched on this while waiting for the mains to arrive (didn't take long), with a drink in hand because happy hour means cocktails & wines are surprisingly affordable.
