La Taperia was one of the many restaurants under the Les Amis group. It offered spanish cuisine, different from the other sister restaurants.Although dim in lighting, the restaurant had a warm and cozy feel, which attracted a number of family style diners here. The staffs here were friendly and easy going.The restaurant offered 3-course lunch set at $35++.

The restaurant offered 3-course lunch set at $35++. Recently I found that Maybank was offering a 1-for-1 set lunch promotion and decided to take up the offer. For appetisers, there were 10 choices available. We were served crusty baguette to go with it.
Chef's Signature Style Gazpacho
with Hass avocado, white tuna & quince jelly
The cold soup was thick and creamy, while tasting refreshing.
Pan-Seared Duck Liver (topup $6++)
with muscovado glazed Calanda peaches & mesclun
The duck liver were 2 huge slabs, which simply melt in the mouth. The peach was juicy sweet. And the mesclun was tossed in a refreshing sweet dressing.
There were 8 choices to choose from for the Mains.
Braised Lamb Shoulder
with tomatoes & artichokes
The lamb was fork tender and melt in the mouth, especially the fatty parts. It did not have the usual gamey taste nor the tough texture associated with lamb. It was filled with chunks of carrots, but did not see any artichoke in it.
Seafood Saffron Noodle Paella (topup $10++)
includes prawn, squid & crab meat
It was like well braised bee hoon, soaking up the flavours from the juicy scallops, prawns and squids, served in a hot pan.
Desserts, there were 6 choices to select from.
Orange Crema Caramel
custard & orange segment
Simple in look, but rich creamy orange taste. Churros
with cinnamon sugar & chocolate sauce
The churros was light and crisp, without too oily. Overall the food was delicious and full of flavours. Not wonder the place was packed even for a slow lazy lunch time.
