Reopening of Tapaz Langkawi @ Telaga Harbour, Langkawi[Kedah]

Telaga Harbour is one of the most happening places in Langkawi, especially when you are there to take yacht tour, or you might stop your yacht there. You can say that this area is more to an "Atas" area in Langkawi because this is where you can all the million dollar luxury parked here for holiday. 
In Telaga Harbour, there's a top notch Spanish concept tapas restaurant that has been serving all the travellers for years in Langkawi. Tapaz Restaurant is one of the most popular restaurants in Telaga Harbour not only for the tourists but also a favourite restaurant among the locals. 

Tapaz Restaurant was first opened in December 2004, then recently underwent a renovation and reopened in June 2017. They serve a very wide Spanish Mediterranean dining menu that features over 40 types of tapas that allows you to taste the delicious small plates of goodies cooked in different combination and methods. Mainly to bring the best out of the ingredients available.
We like the table set up that we joined with a group of guests from Tapaz Restaurant to enjoy the dinner together. We were served with their homemade bread to go with some starter tapas before we dig in. The bread came with their homemade Chicken Liver Pate and Kalamata Olives and we really like how we apply a thick layer of the chicken liver pate to go with the bread.

The dish that we really like was this Garlic Prawns with Dried Chilli, Parsley & Olive Oil. It was so delicious that even the oil was really a good dip for the bread. We didn't waste a single drop of the olive oil and we just dip our bread to finish all the oil. Not forget to mention the shrimps was really fresh and the portion was big, guess you may need to get a few more friends so you can order more dishes from the menu.

Chicken Kebab with Pimiento Sauce was another delicious dish that we enjoyed. We loved the cubed chicken well seasoned and grilled to perfection with the combination of some vegetables in between. It was juicy and the chicken was nicely cooked, perfect to finish it with a glass of wine!

We also tried the refreshing Lime Calamari with coriander & garlic. The squid served to us was fresh and comes with roe inside. Not much seasoning was added into this dish but we enjoyed the natural sweetness and saltiness from the squid itself. Chewy and delicious, though I might personally prefer it to be more flavourful.

Fresh catch of the day!
We were quite lucky that the boss went out to the sea and bring back some live fishes! Hence we got this pot of Grilled Snapper Tapas with tomato onion salsa. Need not further explanation the snapper was really fresh and bare in mind this snapper was from the sea and not from the farm. Every piece of meat was smooth and sweet. We like how it was cooked with the salsa sauce, I even took a lot of the salsa and enjoyed it alone!

Not enough of shrimp?
You can also try the Grilled Tiger Prawns with Garlic Butter!!!

The prawn was grilled separately so you just have to squeeze the lemon juice and pour the melted garlic butter. The lemon made the prawns so refreshing and further enhanced the taste from tiger prawn. IF you know me well, you would know that I will love this dish very much because I'm a garlic obsessed person very much!
If you are not full from the Tapas, you can anytime order Paella from the menu!
A bowl of hearty paella was served to our table and we dug in immediately. This is the original paella we had but you can also try their seafood paella, the one usually available in most tapas restaurants.

It will never be perfect without a sweet ending!
We also tried the Creme Brulee to end the wonderful night! The first "crack" I heard from breaking the top layer of the creme brulee was a blessing! That is how the creme brulee should be and how I would really enjoy it with the burnt crispy sugar!

We had an enjoyable evening at the Tapaz Langkawi with delicious food, some great wines, a lovely company filled with lots of laughter. Special thanks to Tapaz Langkawi for the wonderful evening.
