Thrilling Tapas @ Pinchos
Established in the notorious area of Changkat Bukit Bintang since 2009, this spanish owned tapas & pinchos bar is definitely one of the most pleasant and authentic bar & restaurant on the street, and very lively too!
It is ideal for a drink (hum, or 2!) before going dancing, or for a full spanish galore filled with delicious tapas, pinchos, iberico ham and other delicacies that seem to have been flown from Spain directly just minutes before your order – oh yes, that’s how authentic the taste is. Having travelled extensively in the captivating Spain and fell in love with its regional specialities – the north with its pinchos and cider at San Sebastian, Madrid and its sopa castillana and toros dishes, the Andalucia with its generous Sevillan tapas and tasteful gazpacho – I am hence very picky on the quality and the preparation of these spanish delights. And the taste that Pinchos chef create is definitely the one you find in authentic places in Spain, which is really amazing – and a blessing for Kuala Lumpur inhabitants!
If it is your first time here, and you are not familiar with tapas, you should order several different ones – and share them, that’s how it’s supposed to be done. Make sure that you don’t miss the flavorful crispy and fresh pan tumaca, the jamon serrano – a pure delight, the tantalizing patatas bravas and the addicting croquetas. Should you still have some appetite after this, you can opt for the classic yet gorgeous tortilla de patatas or the calamares a la romana. There is an interesting house wine, and the rest of the wine list includes really typical and fruitful spanish wine – the super efficient waiting crew might be able to help you, or get Roberto, the passionate owner, to guide you on your selection.
Now let’s do the tapas dance and get merry at Pinchos!
