If you are tired of the usual satay fare, it might be time to try out the different tapas restaurants in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. But what is tapas? It’s a general term that refers to small Spanish dishes or finger foods that are typically served with drinks, typically wine.
If you are like most travelers, you want to have the most varied experiences in the short amount of time that you are going to stay. Malaysia, like most other places, has a lot of gastronomic experiences to offer aside from the traditional dishes.
If you are into tapa fare, you would be glad to know that there are many Spanish restos bars in and around the capital where you can find the best tapas in KL. But of course, not all of them are created alike and there are those that are better in that they come close to authentic Spanish flavors of smoked jamonadas, chorizos and another fare.
The best way to find these establishments is to ride on the experienc es of other travelers. To do that, go to websites like TripAdvisor and search for “Spanish restaurants” and “Kuala Lumpur” in the appropriate boxes.
IF you did just that, you will see that there are at least 20 different results, 33 to be exact. What you want to do is to quickly narrow down these Spanish joints to the most highly-rated. TripAdvisor and other similar websites let you filter the results based on their ratings. Once you have narrowed the search results to only the highly-rated, take a look at the customer reviews.
Currently, the top-rated Spanish restaurant in Kuala Lumpur is called El Cerdo. It enjoys an average star rating of 4.5 stars out of five based on 760 reviews. Having that high average rating (and more importantly, the number of ratings) should tell you that it is at least worth checking out.
But this El Cerdo is a Spanish restaurant, not a tapas bar. If you are looking for a tapas bar to hang out in after a tiring day trip, make sure to check out other results. Read the reviews and, more importantly, take note of the name.
Just below El Cerdo is Pinchos Tapas bar, which enjoys an average star rating of over four out of five stars based on 428. It is rated as the top 13 restaurants in Kuala Lumpur, which is a great deal when you consider that there are over 3,469 restaurants in the area.
Again, check out the customer reviews as well as the pictures so you don’t get any surprises. One of the things that we really like about reviews is that you get information on which items on the menu you should try. The reviews on Pinchos are no different. You will find that many customers can’t get enough of the wide choices in the menu. But more than this, they can’t get enough of the wide selection of wines. So, when you are about to travel to Kuala Lumpur, check it out.
