Sometimes I’m so sick of eating Chinese and Japanese, I occasionally crave for Spanish. Spanish for me is in the form of tapas and paella and then all gulped down with the help of a cold refreshing sangria.
It’s not easy to find good and traditional Spanish tapas here in KL but it’s not difficult to find bad ones either. Most of the time, the tapas served here is just not the tapas that you would expect it to be. If you haven’t been to
It’s super duperlicious tapas menu will hold you tightly to your seat despite the alluring loud blasting music from next door. Here, you can engage in a night-long conversation while indulging in these light tapas. Hence, it’s a good place for a date!

I would highly recommend the Jamon Iberico slices, Chorizo Con Setas (Spanish stew with Chorizo sausages, mushroom and potatoes), the prawns with olives and the Paella Mixta which carries a very rich and robust flavours of meat and seafood with a aroma of saffron. It might be a little oily, but I would not complain about the generous amounts of seafood and meat and this paella is certainly of the bests I've tried in town.
Dinners like this is not complete without wines or other things booze. Their signature is the Sangria which was nice, fruity and not too frugal with the alcohol (wine). Below are the wines that we had. The french are all from private bring-our-own and the two (Pinta & San Roman) from Toro Spain can be bought from Pinchos.
