Bilbao Restaurant & Gastrobar

The buzz: The newest tenant of TripleOne Somerset, which brings an unmistakable Spanish flair to the place.The vibe: Well, it really depends on which space you’re in (they have three). Indoors, you can pick from the main dining room or gastrobar. Our pick is their terrace—a large alfresco space that gets boisterous in the evenings. We reckon on cool evenings with a gentle breeze, the only way to go is outside.The food: Nibblers will appreciate the tapas such as piquillods rellenos de langostino, roasted red peppers stuffed with shrimp ($9), chorizo Bilbao a la sidra, smoky Spanish sausages stewed in cider (also $9) and paella mixta, saffron-scented rice with meat and seafood ($10). You can even order a plate of Spanish cheeses with quince paste ($22) or jamón ibérico ($20) to share. For those looking for something more substantial, bacalao al pil-pil con jamón y langostinos, salted cod fish with prawns ($28) or Cochinillo de Segova, roasted baby piglet done Segova-style ($50) should do the trick.Why you’ll be back: It’s hard to find an eatery with a terrace that’s as yet untouched by scores of punters and SPGs along the main drag of Orchard Road. Bilbao provides a nice respite from the bustle of the city, plus you can pick up some Spanish food products or bottles of wine at their retail store right next door.
