WHY GO

It’s a sleek slice of Spain in the heart of Kuala Lumpur, one that hon­ours the ethos of the coun­try's mod­ern cui­sine.

TATLER TIPS

Tapas rule at Ohla, and glo­ri­ously so—from Iberico cold cuts to con­fit Span­ish cod fish. Be mind­ful that por­tions are not large; you will re­quire sev­eral or­ders of the small plates to fill up.

Or­der the de­li­cious grilled Mediter­ranean oc­to­pus that’s touched with a waft of smoke and served on in­cred­i­bly creamy mash. An­other hit is the pair of fat juicy scal­lops wrapped with ja­mon, seared on the out­side, just raw on the in­side, and paired with a dol­lop of zesty lemony mash. The Al­bufera bomba rice with seafood may not be as inky as ex­pected but is still de­light­fully al dente and quite mor­eish. While it may lack the ex­pected crispy skin, the Iberico suck­ling pig is sat­is­fy­ingly tasty. Al­ter­na­tively, try the Span­ish suck­ling lamb paired with car­damom sauce.
