Estilo @ Publika & Black Market @ Kampung Pandan

It's all about tapas this time: Returning to Publika's Estilo & Kampung Pandan's Black Market.
Earlier entry on Estilo: March 11. Entry on Black Market: March 13.

Our top pick for Estilo: Eggs stuffed with tuna, anchovies & walnuts (RM12+). Comfort food.

Air-dried beef on tomato bread, drizzled with olive oil (RM14+).

Spirit-lifting potatoes, packed with cod brandade, topped with aioli (RM14+).

Bloody-good suckling lamb ribs, perfectly prepared, marinated with smoked paprika.

Aubergine "caviar" (RM12+), a pureed eggplant dip that's absolutely addictive.

Estilo is a no-pork restaurant; patrons pursuing porcine pleasure can visit Black Market.

Black Market also features a selection of tapas, including potato-loaded Spanish omelet, steaming-hot & satisfyingly fluffy.

Chinese-style tapas? Bet on Black: Braised pork belly & duck leg.

Black's still beautiful: Egg & tofu. Other tapas here include paprika prawns, octopus with tomato & black truffle pate on toast.

And of course, both Estilo & Black Market offer boatloads of wine. We'll drink to their health!

    1. Missyblurkit: ya, most of the tapas at Estilo are priced way below RM20, even after the service charge. Portions are not too large, so two people can probably happily share 10 plates for a full meal =)
