The third member to join the family is Pim Pam (‘quick and easy’ in Spanish), a modern, cheery bodega situated at a sleepier part of the Orchard Road shopping belt. Walking by, it’s hard to miss the colourful floor tiles, geometric patterns and, a FOC standard, large Lego-shaped heads. There are four sections within the sprawling eatery: the bar area with counter seats and a communal table; a takeaway counter for rum-spiked coffee and churros on-the-go; a line of shelves selling various preserved foods, oils and dips; and the regular dining space.
Here, Spanish cuisine is served as sharing plates including favourites from its sister restaurant such as the appetizing Bread with Tomato (S$8) and Octopus Galician Style (S$22). For breakfast, there’s a section on the menu dedicated to egg dishes or ask for sandwich options of the day where you might find bocatas like the Nandu (S$16), which is stuffed with a French omelette and Ibérico ham. You can also opt to have the moreish paella come in a rectangular flat pan or ‘a la llauna’ to add a little crunch and texture to the grains. Come nighttime, recline at the bar’s leather seats while sipping on daily bottled cocktails by FOC’s Group Creative Beverage Director, Dario Knox, such as Scotch Me Up! (S$17 for a bottle, S$75 for five bottles), a whisky-based drink with chocolate and blackberry liqueur.
