El Faro Tapas Bar and Wine

 El faro, means Lighthouse in Spanish.
Saw this cute little sign every time I pass by Burmah road, so thought I should give it a try.
  The place is nice with dimmed lights but a little warm for me, a note to wear less when you pay them a visit

When I first saw the word Tapas, I thought it's something like Taco.
Well of course I'm wrong.
Tapas, originated from Spain, are small tasting plates of dishes.
The lady boss explained it's like dim sum, everything in small portion
so that you could sample a variety of dishes instead of having only one hefty dish.
I certainly love tapas as I can't eat much at once but I'm a very greedy and tamjiak
person who wants everything. It's quite obvious on my cafe-hopping posts.
Killed some time before the food arrives; that's my beloved dee dee mwahhh
And here comes the glorious food!
 Spanish Bacon [RM32]
We have been having thin slices of bacon, but look at this thick fat one!
 Love the tender texture, and also the lychee vinegrette on top. Never had anything like this!
 Secreto Iberico [RM32]
Translated as Iberian Secret, is a cut of meat between the shoulder blade
 and the loin of the prized Iberian pigs.With Manchego cheese and watermelon reduction,
 this time I did feel the numbing sensation from the Sze Chuan pepper.
The meat is juicy and the numbing was pretty fun!
The Bikini with Truffle Honey [RM18]
I know it looks like ordinary roti bakar but this is the bomb!
Stuffed with premium cut of Iberico ham together with melted Manchego cheese,
slightly crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside, heavenly.
 'Live for Today, Your Time is Now'
 So please, eat all you can, while you still can.
