Dinner at East 8 New York Fusion Tapas + Bar

A mini birthday celebration with evil sista for those who cannot make it to the grand celebration on the weekend. Birthday girl suggested East8 as she has 2 for 2 Tapas vouchers from The Entertainer App. The tiny eatery is located at a corner of the Grand Park City Hall Hotel on Coleman street.

Simple table settings and the menu.

East8 serves fusion style food that marries the oriental elements with NY style preparation and presentation. Food is served tapas style which are smallish in portion meant to compliment a drinking session.

We ordered a total of 12 tapas for a party of 4pax!

A.L.T (Avocado, Lemon & Tuna) $16++

Garlic Tiger Prawn $14++

Yuzu Miso Scallops $16++

Hamachi & Caviar $16++

Sake Mussles $19++

Wings & Kicks $13++

Portobello Fries $16++

Lime Buttered Crispy Crab $18++

Miso Chilean Seabass $24++

Land + Sea $27++ (Bacon wrapped Hokkaido scallops w/ quail eggs)

Cream Drunken Chicken $18++

Ham & Cheese $19++

Most of the 12 dishes were really delish, I especially liked the Chilean Seabass, Portobello Fries & A.L.T. The seabass was uber fresh and cooked just right retaining its moist and tender texture, and well flavored with miso sauce. The breaded mushroom fries were crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside, a delight to munch on. The unassuming ALT was extremely flavorful and perfectly complimented by the creamy avocado paste...yums.

We also ordered some drinks to go with our tapas, I had the Manhattan Ice Tea $7.5++ which was very nice. My friends were all quite satisfied with their choices too.

Vodka w/ Lime $6++ (Happy hour)

East Village (a pair) $18++

East8 is a nice place to chill, sipping drinks and munching on snacks and tapas while catching up with friends. However, we find it a tad pricey as a proper dinner place due to the size of the dishes, so it is best to have your dinner somewhere else before hanging out at East8 till late.

Some shots after sundown...
