District 10 at Star Vista – Eat The Tapas & Smash Your Stress

   

District 10 Bar Tapas Restaurant allows you to smash your glass bottles, not within their shop but in a customized see-through box. All in the name of relieving your stress. If you want, there is an iPad where you can facebook your boss’s photo and smash your stress. Wonderful idea?

“Anybody you hate?” I was asked. And I thought for a while, pondered, and could not find a single person I really wanted to smash. (I love everyone in my life, even my boss). So I went back to the food.

This new tapas restaurant at the Star Vista is pretty much the place you would hang out with your colleague and friends after work/before dinner during for a Happy Hour. (Read: The Star Vista’s Complete Food & Restaurant Guide)

There are more than 35 selections of tapas and pinchos (spike in Spanish) that are made of fresh and seasonal produce to choose from. Some of the not-to-be-missed dishes include the Mini Black Angus Cheddar Cheese burger ($7), Manchego Cheese and Jamon Croquette ($8.80), and Jumbo Crab Cake ($14). Most ideal with a cool icy beer.

Since there are so many items, let me make some recommendations. My favourite of the sides is the Mini Burger, with juice tender Angus beef patty and bun that was warm and soft.

Epicure once named District’s 10’s Hoegaarden Battered Fish & Chips ($22) as one of the Top Ten Fish & Chips in Singapore, and I would concur with that. It is worthy. The beer battered fish was superiorly crunchy, even though I took some time photographing the dish before taking my bite. The fries were just as addictive and crazy good when dipped into a mixture of mint and truffles sauce.

The better news is this Tapas Restaurant is bringing back some of the popular items from the OLD District 10 menu, such as Chilli Crab Pizza, Sambal Prawn Pizza, Beef Rendang Pizza, Wagyu Beef Rendang served with pita bread and Balinese Grilled Chicken with rice.

The Soft Shell Chilli Crab Pizza ($25) made me eat more than I wanted to (like 3 slices) because the sauce was just very sweet-spicy-yummy. (Okay, there could be more sauce overall.) Topped with mozzarella cheese, fried soft shell crab, chilli crab meat and rocket lettuce, this is good to share with four other friends.

Desserts are not their strongest forte though. Let’s just say the tastes of the New York Cheese Cake ($10) and Warm Chocolate Cake with vanilla ice cream ($14) did not match up to their photogenic looks, though the District 10 Sour Cheery Sundae ($11) is probably the one you should leave with if you need something sweet and satisfying.

    I was at their opening, smashing glass help us to destress and at district 10 it is legal, but we are only allowed to smash that particular beer glass, maybe next time can expand to smash plate, throw chair, flip table :)

    I think smash your stress is an awesome idea. Tried smashing plates before at another restaurant and i can feel my grumpy mood evaporates gradually! It can be quite liberating and yet satisfying and stress relieving all at the same time! Lol

    And with a customized see-through box area to smash the bottles, we don’t have to worry about cleaning up the pieces. Leave all your stress behind and leave as a brand new person ^_^

  15. January 17, 2013 at 11:06 am #

    Life is stressful, be it at work or personal life. And I cannot afford to travel that frequently to destress. So smashing stress away might be a good alternative. It should be more affordable than shopping?

    Smash your stress is a good way to release and let go.  Eating “desserts” is better than being “stressed”. Though the letters of 2 words are the same but when spelled in different directions, it gives 2 different meaning. It’s the same when it comes to stress, if handled correctly, it can make one grow.  ^=^

    I want to smash my stress because I tend to bottle up alot of things inside of myself. It would be so awesome if I can just have a great time smashing those bottles hard so that I feel like I'm finally letting all those accumulated frustrations and troubles out of myself! I would then be able to walk with steps that weigh so much lighter! 😀

    Whether it's a date or friends' gathering, enjoying a feast has always been a great method of relieving stress! The chat, the jokes, the food & all those unhealthy substances in the tasty food must have something to do with cheering everyone up. What's more, on top of a great feast in a nicely deco environment, now there's a real stress-relieving exercise – Smashing Bottles! Sounds good! Always relieve stress in such a way that doesn't hurt (emotionally or physically) someone else. More stress only comes about when more irresponsibilities and hurting goes around. So I'm totally cool with this smashing bottles in a see-through box exercise!

    No life no stress…With stress means that I am alive.
    So when I woke up a new day, it means that I may have to experience a different set of stress today.
    No money no talk, have money also may not be happy. So I always "Stress" to make myself and my dear to have balancing in work life and fun in life :)
