What wonders the kitchen works with the simple red bliss potatoes that it transforms into patatas bravas, a dish that is beloved at bars and restaurants throughout Spain. Crispy and creamy, patatas bravas: angry potatoes, because they are also spicy & are much more exciting than French fries.
Well this is just one tapas that we’re talking about.
Established just barely a year in May 2013, Estilo Spanish Tapas Bar & Charcoal Grill is a vibrant restaurant and bar offering a wide variety of Spanish tapas. Their comfortable and charming space is the perfect place to relax with others with a delicious glass of sangria, or enjoy a glass of wine from their extensive menu. Estilo is located in between Elegantology & Silver Spoon right opposite the open centre stage in Publika, KL. More of a a friendly neighbourhood Bar & Restaurant serving authentic Spanish Tapas, charcoal grill specials & paella in a relaxed and casual setting.
Both of us love tapas and have very strong feelings for Spanish cuisine ever since we nominated Barcelona as our favourite city. Haha.
What we thought about tapas?
Small on plates, Big in taste!
Just love how tapas offers an extraordinary shared dining experience.
Since there was a group of us, we decided to mix & match a little between their affordable set lunch menu with the tapas selection & paella from the extensive ala carte menu.
During lunch hours, they serve:
Tapas for Two – RM49 nett with 2 glasses of citrus twist
Choose 3 tapas for a selection that they provide:
* All served with crusty bread & we could choose between homemade fries, Mediterranean rice or salad.
Saute mushrooms in garlic & cream. Tasty & creamy at the right concoction. Not over satiated.
Chilled aubergine caviar with toast. First time having mashed aubergine in olive oil and this tasted very decent. Served chilled, it was just perfect to be spread on the hot toast.
Paella Pan Pizza
Rustic pizza in a pan with chorizo & pineapple. Served in a mini paella pan. Too cute.
We also had 2 additional orders of tapas from their ala carte menu 🙂
Gambas al Ajilo – RM22
Prawns in garlic & chilli, garlic chips. Highly recommended by the staffs, this was definitely worth to order. Prawns were fresh and the chilli garlic combination was just right.
Escargots – RM24
Escargots with leeks & cream sauce on breaded tomato. First time ever having escargots out of their shell and this turns out impressing us all too. The combination of flavours and crunchy texture from the breaded tomatoes was cleverly matched.
Estilo also offers two-course lunch during weekdays 🙂
2-Course Lunch – RM29 nett with a glass of citrus twist
Soup of the day with homemade bread – We had prawn bisque
and a main 🙂
Grilled Chicken Guacamole Salad
Layered with grilled chicken, guacamole, tomato & grated egg, rocket salad & aubergine crisp. This had to be one of the best salad I’ve had as the portion and flavours combination was very healthy!
Paella Mariscos – RM118 (Large)
With mussels, squids, clams, prawns & deep sea snapper in rich seafood & chicken stock.
Last but not least, we finishes off with a huge plate of Seafood Paella. Enriched with flavours from the seafood and stock itself, this serving was pretty good but still can’t beat Cava’s. Just a personal thought. A bit too enriching if you were to eat more.
