Ever looked at a menu and wished that you could get just a small portion of each dish, simply because every option sounds so inviting? For us, that’s a problem we face whenever we open up a menu anywhere.
The next best choice is to pick a few of your favourites and split them with your dining partner so you can get a taste of both, yet sometimes, it just isn’t enough to satisfy. And that’s exactly why we absolutely adore the idea of having tapas—otherwise referred to small plates.
Not only does that mean that you get to sample numerous dishes in a single sitting, but portions are also kept small to reduce wastage. Here are 13 tapas bars in Singapore, including Taiwanese and Cantonese ones to hit up with your pals on your next gathering!
At some point, it became a Singaporean norm to use tissues and name cards to reserve seats in coffee shops and hawker centres — or “chope” as we like to say it colloquially.

The hassle of booking a table has become as simple as a tap on their app or on their website.
The latest news from them will unleash the foodie fanatic in you. It’s time to make your way to the land of gastronomical paradise because ChopeDeals is celebrating the first mega food flash sale event of the year!
