Veg(etari)an Latin American Cuisine at Cuba Libre Café & Bar, Singapore

Veg Dishes at Cuba Libre Café & Bar, @Frasers Towers & Clarke Quay

by Eat Roam Live

Owing to its location in CBD, Cuba Libre @ Frasers Tower focuses on the food, with a visible effort put into the dedicated Vegetarian Menu. Cuba Libre @ Clarke Quay, on the other hand, places a high importance on the drinks, music and the Clarke Quay vibe as well, hence, the food menu is smaller. Don’t worry though, they’ve still got the herbivores covered with vegetarian and vegan Tapas & Bites to go alongside those drinks. Here are the veg dishes that you can dig into at either outlet.

Cuba Libre’s Vegetarian Potato & Cauliflower Quesadilla is one of the better vegetarian quesadillas I’ve had in Singapore! While most Mexican restaurants offer veg quesadillas, they’re more often than not just tomatoes and cheese. Not so at Cuba Libre! Chef Moreno’s version is loaded with all sorts of vegetables and served with 3 dips – Guacamole, a homemade Chilli Dip and a homemade Cheese Sauce. This was a hit across the table and makes for a great, healthy dish for picky eaters.

What’s a bar without a juicy burger? Cuba Libre delivers with the Vegetariana Burger (S$15++), made with a homemade patty of beans, chickpeas, capsicum, coriander and roasted, mashed sweet potato in a sesame bun and served with a side of fries.

If you need another reason to visit, Cuba Libre, Frasers Towers is just a stone’s throw away from Tanjong Pagar MRT station, making it extremely convenient for a weekday lunch at CBD. The focus on the kitchen, doesn’t come at the cost of the bar, you can still find an extensive drinks menu here with a plethora of cocktails, mojitos and martinis, taking care of the evening and weekend socials. But weekday or weekend, one of the best reasons to visit Frasers is that 2 of our favourite dishes at Cuba Libre, are both not to be found at Clarke Quay.

For mains, I highly recommend the moreish Paella de Vegetales (S$20++). My lunch partner and I were both completely floored by the Paella. Slightly lemony with hints of saffron, the paella hit all the right notes. The dish is loaded with vegetables, everything from zucchini to asapagus to okra. Tip: Wait for 3 minutes before digging in, to allow the flavours to mix. *The asparagus is topped with hard-boiled eggs which can be easily omitted upon request making the dish vegan.
