la bodega bangsar

last friday, we went to la bodega @ jalan telawi, bangsar for jade's 19th birthday dinner. for most of us, it was our first time there so we didnt know what to expect (food and pricing). i managed to do alil reading before heading out and found out that la bodega is famous for its selection of tapas and alcohol (wine) and it is part of the gastrodome group which also manages the atrium, telawi street bistro and such. needless to say, it was an atasan place.

true enough, selection process was long as there were so many items on the menu, and most of them are not in english! and they werent any pictures either, just brief descriptions of each item on the menu. after what seemed like forever, these are the drinks we had.

my iced chocolate- rm9

jill's pink guava juice- rm8

param's mojito- rm21

fernie's sex on the beach- rm21

rong jiang's margarita- rm24

jade & elaine's sole still water (1liter)- rm16

and what seemed like forever again, these were our selection of Entrées...

r.champinones- rm20
button mushroom tapas

r.caracoles- rm18
escargots tapas

olive oil vinegar for bread dipping

... and mains:

my steak pie- rm19
cubes of beef tenderloin wrapped in puff pastry

rong jiang's salmon fettucine- rm28

param's mushroom risotto- rm26

fernie's cold roast leg of lamb- rm17

jill's spaghetti marinara- rm24

elaine's spaghetti carbonara- 26

jade's beef tenderloin- rm65

complimentary tiramisu cake

food was great, ambience was great, price was standard bangsar-atasan place (but cheaper compared to chinoz klcc) but service on that night wasnt that great. in fact, it was reeeaaaaaally slowwwwww. it took us about 2 hours plus to 3 to finish the dinner.

total bill- rm393.30 (rm50 goes to taxes alone!!)

definitely a once-in-a-blue-moon indulgence...
