Es Para Ti

January 24, 2011

This Damansara Perdana restaurant's name means "It's for you" in Spanish _ an apt phrase, considering the staff members' enthusiastic efforts to serve satisfying fare.

Paella is a highlight here, with no less than six types available. We liked the relatively unusual "paella con costra," topped with egg. A competently executed version, flavorsome and filled with sliced sausages, pork & chicken chunks.

Spanish suckling pig. Succulent, well-marinated meat that brought out the raging carnivores in us. With convenient portion sizes of quarter, half and full-pig, this could easily become the restaurant's main attraction.

Zarzuela de Mariscos, a watery but tangy stew brimming with fresh-tasting prawns, clams, mussels, fish, squid & scallops. Sufficient for two or three people.

BBQ pork ribs. Hearty, tender and tasty enough to recommend.

Caipiroska & Long Island Iced Tea.

Richland Shiraz, Westend Estate (Australia).

The only downside: the outlet looks gloomy, no thanks to a shortage of customers.
