KL’s bustling, hurried lifestyle has made Spain’s tradition of relaxing with small plates of tapas and a glass of wine, cocktails or even beer a welcome culinary fixture. Usually at the city’s best Spanish restaurants and wine bars, it has rather became a typical norm to find rustic morsels like wispy Serrano ham slices, plump head-on shrimp and crisp patatas bravas meticulously paired with complex Iberian reds, whites and sherries. Oh yeah.
However, here’s an addition of some twist to it.
Let’s forget the traditional Spanish tapas for a while and indulge in some modern small bites that will surely take your palate for tasty surprise ride!
Why Tiki Taka?
I personally love their name merely because it’s cute.
We’re no football fans so we wouldn’t know, for Tiki Taka is the Spanish team’s distinctive style of playing, characterized by short passes, maintaining possession, and working the ball through various channels. Many believe this to be the key to their phenomenal success in recent years. Wow.
Football aside, Tiki Taka also meant “food hoping” locally in Spain. You have a little bite in this restaurant, hoping onto the next eatery to try more – synonymous to our cafe hoping culture here.
Well, we don’t personally need to hop here & there at Tiki Taka of course but our taste buds do!
Adopting the tiki-taka style of Spain, we will have the pleasure of being spoilt by choice – and yes, why pick one when you can have it all?
Also known as the bar for great pintxos & tapas
A concept of small bites, Tiki Taka small plates everything, giving you the opportunity to enjoy a variety of dishes in just one seating.
Smaller portions. Bigger & more diverse flavour. We just have to agree.
Be impressed with the selections of their drinks as well. Cocktails nicely done – I’m hard to impress when it comes to cocktails though I’m not pro. Haha!
