Tapas Club @ Pavilion KL
A new scene is added high up on the 7th floor Dining Loft in Pavilion KL, it is an elegant and classy looking Spanish restaurant that offers a wide variety of classic Spanish tapas fares and home-style recipes.
Founded by Executive Chef Jose Angel Alonso (also the Executive Chef of Binomio Spanish Restaurant) and one-star Michelin Chef Manuel Berganza (the first Spanish chef in U.S. to earn a one-star Michelin rating), Tapas Club aims to offer the authentic flavours from Spain at a much affordable price in a premium cum classy setting restaurant.
There are 3 special signature dishes available for this October – Iberico Pork Skewers, Eggplant Chips and Stuffed Piquillo Pepper. Hopefully they will remain all these 3 signature dishes in their menu because they are seriously very good!
Eggplant Chips (Rm 19)
Thinly sliced eggplants, made crispy and extremely addictive. I love the way they drizzled some honey on the chips, and that makes ‘em extremely addictive.
Stuffed Piquillo Pepper (Rm 27)
Another wow factor! These peppers were from Spain, made stuffed with minced beef and it gave a sweet flavour to the juicy meat.
Iberico Pork Skewers (Rm 25)
Tender and succulent. I love how aromatic is the fats in the Iberico pork meat.
Gambas Alajillo (Rm 26)
Garlic prawns is the must have tapas when you are in any Spanish restaurant. The fresh prawns were infused with lots of flavours from the garlic, olive oil and chili.
Deep Fried Suckling Pig with Spinach Catalan Style (Rm 27)
Crispy on the skin and succulent meat underneath. Quite an addictive thing to go with Sangria or Beer.
Deep Fried Chicken Wings with Roasted Red Pepper Dip (Rm 25)
Chicken & Seafood Paella (Rm 78)
Colourful, vibrant and packed with lots of ingredients and flaovurs. You can’t go wrong with this paella.
Squid Ink Paella (Rm 78)
Myself, I prefer this one. Came loaded with lots of squids and clams, every rice grain was infused with lots of flavours.
Chorizo Paella (Rm 78)
Churros con Chocolate (Rm 20)
Traditional churros with hot chocolate. Made non greasy and crunchy outer layer. And coated with sugar and cinnamon. Oh boy, I love this especially dipping it with hot chocolate sauce.
Mousse De Quesocon Frutos Rojos (Rm 28)
“Tapas Club” cheese cake is another must try dessert here. It is a deconstructed version of cheese cake. The medley of crumbs and berries compote and dollops of cream cheese was just perfect to us.
Single Origin Coffee (from Brazil and Indonesia) is available here. You can do yourself the pour over. Quite interactive. Also, coffee is always a good stuff to go with desserts.
How can we leave a Spanish restaurant without having their famous beverage – Sangria? Tapas Club has the Sangria imported directly from Spain.
And Spanish Draught Beer is avallable here too!
