Go Tapas

Went to La Bodega in Bangsar, KL for a pre-dinner bite. Heather's crazy about everything Spanish since her trip to Barcelona earlier this year. She insisted we try this. Had tapas for the first time ever -- kampung gal from Tamparuli (for those who don't know -it's a small small town in Sabah, E. Malaysia). Heather did all the ordering so we just sat and ate.
Sorry about the pictures-- taken with a camera phone (what will they think of next?)

Button mushroom sauteed in a creamy garlicky sauce.

The play play cook said he can duplicate this --we'll see.

Aubergines with spicy sauce.

Kinda of like a malay sambal dish. Not our favourite but also finished.

Potatoes wedges with mayo sauce

This is an interesting dish-- grilled asparagus with a sauce made of almond, red pepper, garlic and olive oil. We also had the fried cheese and lamb meatballs.

All these eaten with lots of bread (definitely carb-overdosed).

(post comment by heather: Bodega's food is REALLY as good as the food in Barcelona. Or maybe it just suits our malaysian tastebuds. And the ambience and good 'chi' always guarantees a great meal every visit. One of my fave restaurants in KL.)


Love, Jo
