Catalunya with the girlsSunday, June 23, 2013
Some time ago, I met up with my girl friends Cin and Char for drinks and dinner at Catalunya - a Northeastern Spanish restaurant that serves tapas with a view of the MBS skyline.
From the outside, it resembles a nondescript dome in the midst of water but upon walking in ... its a rather magical place of its own!
The windows were full length and peering out, I could see the lovely view of the marina.
My wonderful friends! xo
Cantalunya serves a variety of cocktails that will please any self-respecting alcoholic
(Read : me)
I had one of their popular drinks called Stairway to Heaven!
But the star of the night has to be the Spanish Suckling Pig - a young piglet that is roasted to perfection.
3 excited little piglets!
The service staff will proceed to use a white ceramic plate to cut up the dish, - which is actually a rather traditional Spanish way of telling you that the pork meat is so tender and soft that you can 'carve it with a plate'.
Very fast and deft movements!
We all looked on in anticipation and there was alot of 'Oooh-oooh-ahh-ing' going on our table and the onlookers next to us! LOL
They recommend it for 2-3 people .. but I tell u! We couldnt finish it even with a party of 5.
It was a lovely dinner and a really nice catch-up with friends!
We adjourned to a sake bar nearby for more drinks and I miss those girls already.
Happy birthday dearest Cindy whose turning xx tomorrow (ahaha I never say hor!) and I'll see u very soon after your holiday trip .. love u! Hope u have a great time in Norway!
