[Food Crawl] Bar Madrid @ Jaya One

I was invited to a Food Crawl on 25th May 2010 by Jeremy, the writer of Quirky Malaysia. Wondering what is a food crawl? Food Crawl is when we "crawl" around to try food from different diners =D It was my very first time joining such an event actually =P

The Food Crawl was organised by Ramesh, and there were a total of 18 bloggers who participated the event including me.

Due to some miscommunication between Jeremy and Ramesh, we started the Food Crawl at 2nd station T_T Jeremy thought that it's starting at 8pm and the first place is Bar Madrid but actually it's not.

Bar Madrid is a place to unwind to Spanish melodies and Sangria. They serve a variety of food inspired by Spain. Even if you are not looking forward for heavy meals, it is still a great place to chill out with your friends/colleague with the variety of wine and spirit they have.

Honestly, I've never tried Spanish cuisine before and I really have no idea what to expect haha..they were 3 dishes prepared for the participants of the Food Crawl.

Tortilla Espanola (RM9.00)

Tortilla Espanola is a type of Spanish Omelette. But too bad I didn't get to try this. It smelt kinda strong though, might contain cheese I think?

Jamon Serrano Croquetas (RM15.90)

Jamon Serrano Croquetas is mini fried potato balls with Serrano ham filling. Personally I kinda like this dish because of it's crispy breaded outer crust goes quite well with the mushy potato and ham mixture inside. With mayonese, the filling is even creamier but it's fine even on if it's own.

Iberico Confitado (RM17.90)

Iberico Confitado is slow cooked Iberico cuts served on baguette. Iberico is the meat of the black Iberian pig that lives primarily in the south and southwest parts of Spain. Iberico Ham is said to be the finest ham on Earth.

This dish is a bit different from as it has a really strong flavour on the meat. It taste a bit like stew on baguette. It's nice, but it's not something that I will usually have =x

Overall I think that this would be a great place to drop by if you would like to chill out with your buddies ala Spanish~ The price is affordable, and the taste of the food are good =) Do keep in my mind that food served at Bar Madrid are Non Halal =)

P/S: Stay tune for the next few stops of my Food Crawl adventure at Jaya One ^_^
