COMO, TREC KL - Spanish cocktails and tapas

COMO, founded by the owners of the renowned Pisco Bar in KL, is an eclectic and modern Spanish “Copas y Tapas” bar with a vibrant and seductive dance floor at the upper level.

COMO's menu features bespoke cocktails and crafted tipples alongside Spanish tapas with a local influence. The restaurant opens daily from 5pm to 1am, and the dancefloor upstairs comes alive after 11pm up until 4am, with resident DJS spinning techno/deep house tunes.

Diners can choose to sit indoors under the hand-painted vaulted ceiling, or the al fresco area, great for people-watching.

On the Copas (Spanish for drinks) menu, you will find wines, beers, gin and tonics, funky shooters as well as flirty cocktails. The cocktail menu has been designed by Leonie Tan, one of the owners, with consultation from Italian mixologist Mateo Arrigoni, following the concept of East meets West. I had one of the Signature Cocktails with an Asian influence, the Oolong Sour (RM36)- a concoction of oolong tea infused Bourbon, lemon juice and sugar syrup. Loved it, perfect for someone like me who likes something sweet and strong.

Start your evening with some Salted Egg Yolk Fries (RM16) - the fries are coated with a layer of salted egg yolk sauce and spiced with some curry leaves and chilli. Crisp and addictive, you'll be left wanting more.

Eating calamari in a Spanish restaurant sure brings back good memories of our days spent in Spain. The deep fried squid (RM24) has a light, crispy batter and served with aioli.

The House Specialty, Patatas Bravas (RM16) is another must-order. Golden cubes of potatoes with a filling of hot Spanish sauce and topped with aioli, they were crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. 

From the tapas menu, we tried the Black Mussels (RM32) in a special Thai sauce. The sauce was redolent of Thai green curry - it was nice and creamy, with lemongrass lending a wonderful fragrance to it.

Nico, one of the owners also recommended Stewed Aubergines (RM18) in parmigiana sauce. He tells us it's one of his favorite dishes from the menu.

If you like Chinese roast pork aka siew yoke, then you must try the Spanish Roasted Pork Belly (RM26), which is awesome! The pork belly is first dried overnight with salt, then roasted and finally deep fried before serving, to give a beautiful, crispy finish. 

Crispy and crunchy, with every bite

Other than tapas, they also have cold cuts, cheese, salads and mains. On the mains section, you will find beef tenderloin, pasta, seabass, lamb stew, chicken and pork ribs. We had the latter (RM42), whereby imported pork ribs are braised until tender and glazed with a homemade BBQ sauce, with a side serving of mini potatoes with green mojo sauce. Next time I want to come back and try the paella.

For desserts, we had the churros (RM20) with chocolate sauce. Fresh from the fryer, the churros dusted in icing sugar were beautifully crisp... we couldn't ask for a better end to our meal here at COMO.

Opening times: 5pm to 4 am daily. Closed on Mondays.
