Located at Resort World Sentosa, PISCO South Amercian Kitchen and Bar is a family style restaurant offering South American cuisine inspired by native Amercian fare and food from Andes Mountains. The restaurant is named after the port of a colonial town in Peru transporting guests to the heart of South America with its vivid design elements.
Pisco Sour 4.2/5
The restaurant comes with a bar that serves up a variety of signature Pisco cocktails. I have a pre-dinner drive starting with the iconic Pisco Sour ($15) which is a mix of pisco, lime juice, sugar, egg white and Angostura. A very refreshing and easy to drink cocktail.
Quintessential to South Amercian cuisine is the selection of ceviches on the menu, a raw seafood dish marinated in lemon juice, lime and spiced with chilli peppers. The Langostino ($13) is served in a coconut leche broth and topped with fried banana. The prawns were fresh, crunchy and came with a rich coconut and tangy burst of flavours.
The Pulpo ($13), octopus in olive sauce and capers is another beautiful ceviche that comes with a rich flavour.
Conchas Borrachas 2.8/5
I was actually a bit disappointed with the Conchas Borrachas ($13). The Pisco drunk sea scallops with passion fruit sauce and chilli somewhat lost its sweetness in the alcohol high scallop resulting in a bitter taste.
Moving on to the Tapas menu, I tried the Empanada ($14) which is a stuffed pastry with minced beef.
Shaped and tasted similar to our local curry puff, the well marinated minced beef made it a very delightful snack.
Bolas De Yuca 4/5
The Deep Fried Cheese Balls with Cassava Mayo, Bolas De Yuca ($14) is fried to a nice gold brown. Paired it with the cassava mayo dip to fully enjoy these crispy bites.
Los Pinchos 4/5
The highlight at Pisco probably is the Los Pinchos or Skewer Sets where guests can select a combination of 3 skewers of meat, vegetables and seafood. It is served with mint salsa, salsa criolla or Amarillo chilli. I tried the Pork Belly ($12), Lamb Shoulder ($16), Beef Ribeye ($21), Salmon ($16) and Chicken Thigh ($10). My favourite was the Salmon, Chicken Thigh and Pork Belly. They were well marinated and perfectly grilled, tender and succulent.
Grilled Corn 4/5
Jacked Potatoes 3/5
Add to the skewer sets with a selection of sides such as the Grilled Corn ($9) and Jacked Potatoes ($9). Nothing fancy but a good complement for all the meats on skewers. I like that the grilled corn are served with butter and parmesan cheese on the side where I can spread as much of it on the corn.
Churros with Hot Chocolate Sauce 4.5/5
Finished up dinner with the classic Churros with Hot Chocolate Sauce ($9). The fried dough pastry sprinkled with sugar is definitely a crowd pleaser with its crunchy bite and chocolate dip.
The convivial ambience at Pisco makes it a perfect dining stop to experience the spirit of South Amercia. If you have a big appetite, you can try the All You Can Eat Freshly Grilled Skewers ($59 for 1pax/ $98 for 2pax/ $138 for 3pax/ $178 for 4pax)
