La Bodega has made a name for itself over the years and it is now a landmark in the Bangsar area. With two outlets servicing the residents and visitors of Bangsar, its popularity as an authentic Spanish restaurant has grown amongst the youngsters, the working professionals, the expatriates and locals.

o     The Vibe

La Bodega takes on a deep masked red interior; its muted lights create a warm and cosy feel akin to an authentic Spanish restaurant. The accompanying background Spanish music for a moment, makes Spain surreal.

o     The Food

Tapas is a typical snack or appetizer in Spanish culture and here at La Bodega, it is almost like a degustation set with a variety of tapas served concurrently. The portions come in two different sizes, small and large, depending on the appetite of your dining partner(s).  The Queso de Mahon Frito, which is deep fried cheese served with sun dried tomato paste, is surprising light on the palate when taken in moderation. Crunchy on the outside, it oozes out with warm cheese. The Salchichas al Diablo is spicy chicken sausage sautéed with onion, chilli and tomato. It balances well with a sweetish tinge to it and it is neither too bland nor too spicy. The highlight of the meal would be the Gambas al Ajillo which is tiger prawns sautéed in olive oil and garlic. It comes to your table bubbling and piping hot. Tapas is often served with wine and La Bodega has kept that tradition by introducing White and Red Sangria. White you might ask? Indeed, La Bodega has concocted White Sangria to tease the curious wine lovers but if you’re not an adventurer, you have the option Red Sangria and many different types of beer to accompany your meal.

o     The Service

Unfortunately, there are no Spaniards waiting on the tables and working the counter. Nonetheless, La Bodega provides excellent service with their friendly and attentive staff. On top of that, the food is served in a timely fashion by smiling waiters.

SD Food Advisor’s take on La Bodega

La Bodega is possibly the first restaurant in Kuala Lumpur that boasts an authentic Spanish menu. It is a refreshing change from the usual local, western, Italian or Japanese cuisine that is abundant in the city. The food is delectable, prices are fairly reasonable and the ambience readily sets you all perked up for a great tapas tasting session! La Bodega is indeed one restaurant which speaks for itself so head down for a jolly good time!
