Food Review – Tiki Taka at Medan Damansara
I recently headed over to Tiki Taka in Medan Damansara with Joey, Lynn, Andy Kho and his two little cousins to try out this newly opened restaurant and bar. The establishment is owned by Hans who formerly owned D’Legends Bar in TTDI. Hans got the idea for his new outlet when he travelled to Barcelona last year. He liked the culture of having meals in small portions so decided to introduce that concept here but instead of following the Spanish food culture, he decided to put a twist to it by having some Asian influence in the dishes.
So don’t expect this to be a Spanish restaurant because it’s not. It’s a Spanish tapas inspired restaurant and bar which serves up tapas, pinchos, pizzas and more with a fusion of local, Asian and Western flavours! Anyway here’s a look at what we had on a really wet and stormy night in Damansara!
Fans of draught beer rejoice! Becasue Tiki Taka has some awesome all night long deals for Kronenbourg Blanc, Asahi Super Dry, Carlsberg and Connor’s all night long! BTW watch the bar staff do a three part pour for the Connor’s draught which results in a smooth and creamy pint with a lovely head.
There is also a whole selection of cocktails at Tiki Taka with some classic cocktails like mojitos and Bloody Mary and some cocktails unique to Tiki Taka.
Classic Mojito – RM25.00 – rum with fresh mint leaves, lime, syrup & topped up with soda
Bloody Mary – RM25.00 – vodka, tabasco, salt, blackpepper, and worcerstershire sauce
Pulp Fiction – RM30.00 – whisky, ginger, honey, fresh orange & pineapple juice
Pintxos is pronounced as pinchos, however Tiki Taka spells it in the original way.
Legendary Wings (top center) – RM 21 – chicken wings in legendary hot sauce, ranch dressing, celery sticks
When they called it “legendary” they really meant it! The wings were spicy and delicious and went well with the ranch dressing which tempered the heat a bit! This is a must order dish if you like chicken wings!
Nutella Bacon Wantons (bottom left) – RM12.00 – deep fried nutella & bacon wantons, macerated berries, balsamic glaze, snow sugar
Now this was a really interesting dish! Little parcels of Nutella and bacon wrapped in wantan skins with some berries on the side to balance out the chocolaty and savoury flavours. I love bacon and I think anything with bacon is just fine so this was a dish that’s just perfect for me!
Churros (top) – RM12.00 – spanish skinny doughnuts, cinnamon sugar, dark chocolate sauce
Crispy churros with a lovely dark chocolate sauce which I totally finished with a spoon after all the churros were gone. One serving is never enough!
If you’re looking for some food which is not of the usual variety yet very tasty at the same time, you can give Tiki Taka a go. I must say that the pricing is pretty reasonable for an upmarket area like Medan Damansara. The draught beer promos are great for drinkers while those who prefer liquor will be totally spoilt for choice. Tiki Taka is a great new addition to this F&B row.
Tiki Taka also offers free valet service for all Tiki Taka patrons, which for an area like Medan Damansara which has very limited parking, is very very useful indeed!
Tiki Taka is located at:
138, Jalan Kasah,
50490 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
