During my recent trip to Malacca, I was invited to La Bodega @ The Shore Malacca and tried out their Sunday Pintxos and Paella promotion.
La Bodega is a Spanish-style Tapas Bar serving an extensive menu of traditional Spanish cuisine and a wide array of fine wines and spirits. The first La Bodega has been serving the Kuala Lumpur restaurant scene since 1999. Popular amongst KL-ites for an authentic menu of fresh seafood paellas, a hearty selection of hot and cold tapas, and of course the famous La Bodega breakfast fare. An exciting addition to the kitchen in Malacca is a traditionally Spanish charcoal-fired Josper oven. We eagerly look forward to the delicacies that our Catalan chef will be adding to the menu.
La Bodega Malacca proudly opens its stage to musical acts from all over the world! Enjoy live performances by talents such as Mathilde Limal, Mutima and the evergreen Park the Spaceship happening every Friday evening and Sunday afternoon. On Saturday nights, get your party hats on and dance until the morning light.
Happening every Sunday afternoon at La Bodega Telawi Bangsar and The Shore Malacca., customers can snack and nibble on a spread of over 30 types of pintxos from RM4.25 onwards!
Served in individual bite-sized portion, pintxos is a common Spanish snack that typically eaten in bars, with small slice of bread topped with mixture of ingredients and skewered with a toothpick. The toothpick is used to keep ingredients from falling off the bread, as well as to keep track of the number of items that the customer has eaten. Sometimes, differently priced pintxos have toothpicks of different shapes or sizes.

Tuck into a steaming plate of freshly cooked paella for RM21.20 and enjoy your choice of Red Sangria made with Torres Vina Brava vinos tintos or a Tiojito made with Tio Pepe sherry!
Paella is a Valencian rice dish with ancient roots that originated in its modern form in the mid-nineteenth century. Traditionally, paella is prepared on Sunday because women need a day off from cooking hence it is usually cooked by the men. Calasparra, a low-starch and short-grain rice, is the best rice to cook paella because it is fluffy and can absorb the flavorful gravy very well.
