Warm inviting cozy interiors aside, look out for el Willy’s chef/owner Willy Trullas Moreno who pops by the main dining room from time to time to mingle with the regulars.
Hailing from Barcelona, the hat-loving chef gives diners a taste of contemporary Spanish cuisine with a creative, Shanghai-inspired twist. The paint splattered design on the back of his chef coat hints at what’s to come.
Gazpacho served with a dab of green tea ice cream or slow-cooked beef cheek with banana and passion fruit are among some of chef Moreno’s flamboyant combinations. His signature lobster paella is hearty and perfectly balanced. Fusion tapas don’t disappoint either with their fresh flavors (think, codfish in a lobster broth with artichokes and beans).
With a regularly changing menu and attentive service (which can get a bit patchy when the restaurant is busy), if you’re feeling less adventurous try their weekend bunch, a steal at 150RMB.
