Tap into the “tapas” of the world with Scissors Paper Stove! Helmed by the wunderkinds, Chomel Yang and Januver Chow after their first successful venture with Fratini La Trattoria, Scissors Paper Stove serves up meticulously curated tapas, mains, desserts and hand-crafted cocktails. From serving the dishes in Tingkats (tiered Chinese lunchbox) and innovative use of Asian ingredients to crafting a menu cultivated for sharing a tradition that is deeply ingrained among Asian dining cultures, Scissors Paper Stove is the latest tapas restaurant in town with an Asian touch that we are all familiar with.
Available in 16 toothsome options, the tapas range is a synthesis of the best flavours and cultures across the globe with a breath of fresh air.
Grilled to perfection and served with stewed sauerkraut and homemade spicy chili jam, the Spanish classic Chorizo Sausage (SGD11 onwards) is made to whet your appetite.
For an indulgent bite, dip the slow-roasted Spanish’s finest Iberico Pork Belly (SGD12 onwards) into coriander and ginger sauce, and savor it with caramelized shallots.
Other must-try meat selections include Indian Lamb Kebab (SGD11 onwards) infused with lemongrass and Beef Skewers (SGD11.50) with Thai style homemade chilli sauce. Seafood lovers? Dive your palate for a tropical punch with cured sea bass Ceviche (SGD7.50 onwards) featuring nectarous mango, dragonfruit, kiwi cubes, and crispy pappadum.
Conceived specially for communal dining, tapas dishes can be ordered for sharing with the loved ones.
Taking the centre stage of Scissors Paper Stove’s mains would be Cartafata (SGD36) – fresh seafood infused with staple ingredients of the east such as lemongrass cooked in a sealed bag that is widely popular in the west. Served with Thai yellow fried rice, the dish promises a mind-blowing burst of aromas and flavours. Diners who prefer to relish in the full-bodied flavours of Spain can opt for the Paella (SGD28 for 1 pax and SGD45 for 2 pax) – boasting plump grains of bomba rice laden full of savoury goodness from the saffron bisque, topped with delectable seafood, chicken bits and flavourful chorizo.
Bearing testament to Chomel’s love and expertise in baking, the dessert menu features four sweet treats conjured by the young chef herself. Specialties which she mastered during her days in the prestigious Le Cordon Bleu, London sets to delight diners. Executed with a quivering base and infused with liberal shreds of zest from lime and lemongrass for a refreshing twist, the Panna Cotta (SGD5) is one indulgence that is not to be missed.
At the helm of the bar counter, Januver showcases his flare in bartending and sommeliering. Complementing the restaurant’s Asian-fusion fare, the pleasantly quirky menu entices its patrons with a series of locally inspired cocktails made with ingredients that are close to the hearts of many Singaporeans. Signature sips are Tak Kiu Peng (SGD12) – a vodka base shake with amaretto and everyone’s favourite Milo, and Nim Jiom (SGD13) – whisky on the rocks with soothing Pi Pa Gao (traditional chinese cough syrup). Have a perfect matching sip from the award-winning wine selection like St Clair Vicar’s Choice Sauvignon Blanc and Arlequin Merchant of Venice Shiraz (SGD55), or grab a bottle of beer to enjoy the tapas experience like a true blue Spanish.
