District 10 @ The Star Vista

Posted on March 26, 2013


If you have been a regular at Rochester Park, you would have noticed a recent inclusion in the vicinity. The new CapitaMall Asia’s asset, The Star Vista has housed a vast number of eateries. 20130217-155533.jpgAmong several prevailing labels is this, District 10 Bar Tapas Restaurant.20130217-155539.jpgStanding in an outlaying space somewhere on the circumference of the site, the third outlet emerged with a collection of more than 35 tapas and other classic dishes.


Mini Black Angus Cheddar Cheese Burger, $7.

What are Tapas? It is Spanish for a wide variety of appetisers or snacks served in bars. Convenient and quick, tapas are popular with drinkers who wanted a bite just before a binge.

At 4inches in height, this sandwich could hardly fill you up. Nonetheless, I was exhilarated to see semi-raw meat in the middle of the beef patty. That was enough to keep me happy.

Jumbo Crab Cakes, $14.

I love a good crab cake. Fresh shredded meat from the crustacean and some other ingredients packed into the shape of a patty and fried or baked till golden brown. The ones we had were stale and definitely two worlds apart. Do avoid.

Hoegaarden Battered Fish & Chips, $22.

At 22 buckaroos, any F&C could have fared better than these. No doubt the batter was light, the fillets were no where near yummy.


Wagyu Beef Cheeks Rendang Pizza, $28.

After a number of misses earlier on, I had lower expectations for the upcoming dishes.

Never, I say never prejudge a block of meat before the first munch especially if it is on a rendang pizza. Every nugget was the contrary of what they seemed to be, succulent and soft. The delight of the evening.


Crema Catalana, $9.80.

There is always a dessert stomach that is deliberately left empty in me.

I had something similar sometime back in Boxing Crab which was a lot tastier, check it out. This Creme catalana was not done well with an over-torched crust that was bitter. Fail.


Warm Chocolate cake with Vanilla Ice cream, $14.

What I love about these chocolate cakes are that they were always moist, rich and of course warm which was why I kind of visualised this to be the same. I wished I had liked the $14 confection more.

There were many blunders that day which then again made me wonder if anyone should patronise them. I would but only for any of their beef entrees and maybe an occasional mini burger.
