Estilo Tapas & Charcoal Grill @ Publika

March 26, 2013

Wrapping up our trilogy on Estilo, one of Publikas hottest/coolest hangouts this month. 
Earlier entries on Estilo: March 11 & March 15.

Tackling tapas: Crunchy croquettes, thematically conceived _ some filled with chicken & egg, others with mushrooms & truffle oil.

Get stuffed: Save stomach space for Spanish peppers padded with minced beef (RM18++) ... 

... & baby squid puffed up with savory minced prawns (RM18++).

Creamy oven-baked goats cheese in crisp filo pastry, beautifully balanced with pumpkin jam & caramelized shallots (RM16+).

A mash not monstrous: Truffle-scented potatoes, with no gravy required.

Estilo, a no-pork place, serves fun variants of paella, including this fowl one filled with turkey chorizo, chicken & French beans. Two or three can share this RM54+ serving.

Charcoal-grilled Aussie Black Angus rib-eye, RM72+ for a succulent 200-gram steak.

Another plate of protein power: Suckling lamb (RM38++), sliced thinly for easy eating.

Estilos house-made meat sauces: Blue cheese, green chili, peri-peri & black pepper.

Estilos list of desserts is short but, well, sweet: The best bet might be the apple tart, cooked to order for a 15-minute wait, served fresh & warm with vanilla ice cream.

Mexican Coffee, splashed with Tequila Patron XO Cafe.

Two types of Sangria, one with white wine, X-rated & strawberry liquor, the other with red wine, rum, orange liquor, sprite & fruit pieces (RM25+).

Martinis are marvelous here; try the watermelon one (complete with olives nevertheless).
