Weekly Reads: 5 Interesting Facts You Might Not Know About Tapas

Originated from Spain, tapas are now presented in restaurants from all over the world in the form of small plates, snacks or appetizers. From a bowl of olives to creative tapas with a peculiar touch, tapas are undeniably loved by many! While some may think tapas are just smaller versions of foods, they are actually more than that! Check out 5 interesting facts you might not know about these world-famous delicacies. 
 

1/ Tapas mean “cover”

Image Cre: Cicchetti Di Zenzero 

Did you know “tapa” literally means “cover”? Many believe that in the beginning, tapas were merely pieces of bread that were placed over a glass just to keep the flies away. It is said that during the 10th century, Spanish King – Alfronso, had a severe illness and all he could eat were small bites of foods with wine. Once recovered, the King declared that wine can’t be served without a small bite of food and there came the flourish of tapas in Spanish bars!  


 

2/ Tapas used to be free and were simple dishes like almonds or olives!

Image Cre: aborigenbarcelona 

Nowadays you can see tapas in various shapes and styles; however, when they were first originated, tapas were actually foods that required little to no preparation. As free snacks for drinking occasions, these small dishes can be as simple as a hunk of bread, a dish of olives, almonds or milk cheese! After Spain came in contact with other countries, tapas also started to evolve as bar owners had strived to come up with new ideas for tapas to stand out from the rest. 

 

3/ Tapeo – The Art Of Eating Tapas

Image Cre: proper-spanish-tapas 

Spanish tapas are sumptuous yet the tapas concept is actually not only based on the food itself! Tapeo – the art of eating tapas, is simply the gathering of people to share and socialize. In Spain, it has become a part of the Spanish way of living – sharing memories and hour-long conversations with their family members and friends over a glass of wine or beer together with delicious tapas. Come to a tapas bar and you will be likely to see a lively ambience filled with laughter because after all, tapas connect people! 
 

4/ Tapas are varied in different regions. 

Image Cre: Sentidos Gastrobar – The Latin Grill

While you may think that tapas are just the same all over Spain, they are actually more varied than you thought. Different regions have their own specialties and even their own stories! Come to the North for their famous mini toasts with scrumptious toppings, to the central and Southern Spain to taste Iberican Ham and Chorizo and head to the coastal South for fish tapas! Each city also has its iconic tapas such as Barcelona and their renowned Patatas Bravas (Spicy Potatoes). 

 

5/ There is something called Japas!

Inspired by tapas and traditional Japanese cuisine, Japas dining is one of the concepts that have quickly won the hearts of diners. Exceptionally versatile and has more to offer than sushi, Japas can re-interpret familiar foods into new creations.

Before departing Kuala Lumpur for Chinese New Year 2019 celebration and revel in a plethora of lunar new year’s delicacies on this occasion, my friend and I decided to treat ourselves to a dinner to satiate our taste buds with Western delights!

Known for its exceptional service and excellent dishes, Mezze Bar & Bistro is definitely our place to be. Of course, we took this chance to introduce to you 3 delights that you definitely must try when come to the restaurant! 

 

1/ French Rib Eye

The stunningly marbled rib eye is lightly marinated and grilled under the perfect heat for the beef to exude its beefiest flavors and maintain its high protein. This perfect-for-gourmet steak served along with tasty shoestring fries and fresh side salad is a satisfactory indulgence that any steak fans would not resist.

Only the high-quality cutlets are hand-picked and marinated for hours to bring out the best taste before being grilled to à point. Expect a heap of piquancy and tender goodness on your tongue when you savor this delight!

To finish our journey of gustatory fulfillment, we ended with a one-of-a-kind Mezze Burger including 250g of freshly ground beef patty and served with shoestring fries, a choice of panini or brioche bune! Such a big beef patty would require a skillful hand to be able to keep the beef moisturized while maintaining its doneness and this burger did not let us down at all! Not only juicy but the dish was really a delightful treat for its flavors thanks to the addition of whisky BBQ sauce, red cabbage slaw, mayo, lettuce.

Celebrating Love This Valentine’s Day 2019 at Bijan Bar & Restaurant, Kuala Lumpur

It was during the preparation for Chinese New Year that we received an invitation from Bijan Bar & Restaurant for a special sneak peak session on their Valentine’s menu. This stunned us for a little just to realize that this Valentine’s Day 2019 will take place within the Chinese New Year celebration.

We had a dose of excitement as Bijan has always been surprising us with their innovative ways of enjoying food. What made us more thrilled was this award-winning Malay fine-dining restaurant had come up with an out-of-ordinary menu –  Baba Nyonya Dondang Sayang to pay homage to the unique Malay and Chinese cultural marriage – a thoughtful and meaningful effort for this special occasion. 

 


The table was decorated with beautiful lanterns. 

It took us only a few minutes to reach the restaurant as Bijan is located just a mere stone throw’s away from KLCC. Bijan welcomed us with a warm yet chic ambience and serenaded us by its soothing music background – an intimate setting for a romantic escapade. As we stepped in, the restaurant was fully packed with people. We were lucky enough to have a special table arrangement. If you are planning to visit this fine-dining restaurant, don’t forget to make reservations in advance. 

 

  
A sneak preview of the Valentine’s menu at Bijan

We couldn’t wait to start this unique culinary adventure to relish a 4-course Baba-Nyonya-inspired menu which we were introduced that it would bring a “twist on traditional offerings of togetherness”. 

Before starting the meal, diners will be spoilt with choices as there are 4 types of complimentary cocktail or mocktail to choose from. Each couple can pick 2 of these unique drinks. 

 


From left to right – Pink Ginger & White Hibicus Mocktail which were refreshing and subtle in sweetness. 
 


Don’t Cut Ali Cocktail which is named after the main ingredient Tongkat Ali – a natural energy booster herb. Expect a hint of coffee taste and a robust sensation with a touch of heat aftertaste. 

 


An exciting cocktail – Chili Martini which would make you say wow for the burst of flavors on the tongue. 

 

1st Course – Sharing Is Caring 


King Fish Otak-otak, Prawn Coconut and Banana Blossom Rolls

We began by reveling in Srikandi – a sharing plate featuring King Fish Otak-otak, Prawn Coconut and Banana Blossom Rolls in pairs. These bite-sized morsels were perfectly presented to showcase a different beauty of familiar offerings in a finer approach.

The King Fish Otak-otak appeared in an out-of-ordinary yet fine-looking shape – cylinder, with an incredibly crispy fish skin lain on top. Take a bite and a hint of spiciness and molten goodness will excite your taste buds! The rolls impressed me as they were fried to à point and filled with banana blossoms which resulted in an absolutely crunchy texture along with a tantalizing aroma! Finally, the Prawn Coconut oozed a delicate sweetness as it was coated in coconut crumbs. 

 

2nd Course – Togetherness


Pan Seared Scallop on Coconut Potato Puree Drizzled with Extra Virgin Coconut Oil and Lemongrass Espuma and Budu Belacan Caviar

Our second course – Kekapis Arjuna, totally made us gobsmacked for the seemed-to-be-caviar creation. Using 2 familiar local ingredients including budu (anchovies sauce) and belacan (shrimp paste), the chef had amazingly turned them into a caviar-like delight which exuded a delectable dollop of savory and sourness in each bite. The Pan Seared Scallop was silky smooth, ambrosially rich and delightful. Our advice is to quickly savor the scallop after it is plated to fully enjoy its deliciousness and avoid it turning cold!

 

3rd Course – A Match in Heaven 


Half Baby Lobster Laksa Baba Nyonya Classic Served with Otak-otak & Homemade Squid Ink Pasta

First was an eye-catching bowl of Laksa Baba Nyonya classic with a yellow gravy which was so vibrant that we couldn’t stop admiring. The Squid Ink Pasta (which nestled under the lobster) was skillfully handmade and perfectly mingled with the subtle creaminess of the laksa. I was in love with this dish as the heap of piquancy from the laksa excellently accentuated the lobster flavors and the Otak-otak was incredibly spot-on.

 

Pan Seared Fermented Prime Australian Angus Ribeye Served with Roasted Smoked Rice and Herbal Tricolor Rice

The Daging Salai Angus Nasi Ulam was a true show stopper! Beautiful slices of Fermented Prime Australian Angus Ribeye were set on top of a colorful bed of Roasted Smoked Rice and Herbal Tricolor Rice. Only the best rice was hand-picked to be smoked for 6 hours under slow fire for the best flavors. The 3-day fermented beef also amazed us with its juiciness and an irresistible beefy taste in the mouth. The restaurant’s homemade sauce, which was put in a pitcher plant (wow!), was splendid as it enhanced the beef taste. We relished everything about this dish! 

 

4th Course – Happy Ending

From left to right – Nila Seputih Salju and Bersepuh Emas 

We ended our meal with two superb delicacies which the flavors still linger in our mind up till now. 

 


First off, Nila Seputih Saljiu which is Wajik and Bunga Telang Rambutan Sorbet Served on a Bed of Coconut Snow. The sorbet was not only tantalizing for its natural color from the butterfly pea flower but also sumptuous with a subtle sweetness from the rambutan. The wajik (sticky rice cake) was an exquisite addition as it went well with the melt-in-the-mouth coconut snow.

 


Next was Bersepuh Emas which is Tapai Pulut and Mango Sorbet With Crispy Mango Skin and Fruit Leather. The use of mango skin as a part of this delight totally made us astonished! To be honest, I did not know mango skin could be this tasty! The Tapai Pulut, using family-heirloom recipe, was one of the best I’ve ever tasted. A spoonful of this combination was enough to titillate my palate and capture my heart.

 

As a celebration of Valentine’s Day and the last day of Chinese New Year (also known as Chinese Valentine’s Day), the menu will be available on 14th & 19th February 2019. We expressed our wish of having the menu throughout the entire week, yet the chef revealed that he had to arrange this to preserve the highest quality of the ingredients – another reason for us to pay respect to this man!

Special thanks to Bijan Bar & Restaurant for having us on this sensory journey to excite the palate and delight our heart and soul. Thank Chef Razis for inspiring us with your creativity, passion and thoughtfulness in each dish.
