After some labwork (around 3pm), I went to The Mines for the book fair to hunt some books.
Leave the book fair around 7pm and headed to USJ9 for my belated birthday celebration with MUST gang.
This time, we are dining at a Spanish restaurant--La Cocina. (Thanks to TingJie for her recommendation)
This would be my first experience of genuine Spanish food in my life!
La Cocina is a quaint little restaurant with its warm decor of brown wood and yellow painted wall. I likes the posters and pictures hanging on the wall and impressed by the cosy relaxed atmosphere of the place with Spanish music plays in the background.
I learn a new word here- Tapas (Spanish Appetizer).
Here, they served a range of Tapas which we ordered.....
Button Mushroom in Cream Sauce which serve with bread and fresh crab croquette (taste like mashed potato mixed with crab)...
What a nice starter!!
The main course that we ordered were:
Paellas Negres (Spanish rice cooked in black squid ink with some seafoods)
Pollo Con Salsa De Crema (Chicken Pieces In Creamy Mushroom Sauce)
Fettucine Carbonara with Chicken Cubes (this is an Intalian food if im not mistaken)
Negras (Picture taken from kyspeaks.com)
After the main course, we still manage to take in 1/2 dozen of spicy chicken wings and a desert (Caramelised Rich Custard).
So surprise to hear the birthday song (spanish version) played by the restaurant for me with a small cake served by the waiter...I am really touched!!
Thanks to you guys!!
Overall, the food was great especially the Paellas...
My first visit here certainly won’t be my last!
Lovely food, great service and reasonable price make this Spanish restaurant a must to visit again.
