La Cocina is a Spanish term for “The Kitchen” or “Art of Cooking”. Our managing director Mr. Jeganathan is a Swiss-trained chef with an extensive experience in hotel & catering trade in various countries. He was also with the world famous cruise liner - Queen Elizabeth 2 for a period of 12 years. Mr. Jega’s years of experience means customers at La Cocina can expect the very best in food, wine and service. La Cocina is not just about food & wine, it is an experience!


Jeganathan’s vast experience in western and local cuisine has enabled him to bring a unique taste of Spain to Kuala Lumpur bearing in mind that the food is Muslim friendly! He was trained in Switzerland, and prepares traditional Spanish dishes with a highly cultured French flair. He tolerates no short cuts in the kitchen, and it shows!
While we are most famous for our Paella, we are building an equal reputation for our sangria and tapas offerings as well. But come and see for yourself! You are sure to find your own favourite quickly!



One of the most unique things about La Cocina is that we have been in business – under our Head Chef, not an external owner – for more than 15 years. As we have just moved onto our new building, we urge you to visit us again! We promise you the same fantastic dining or catering that we have always been known for in a much larger and more inviting space. We can even host your parties and special events in a dedicated private function room! Take a look at our virtual tour and have an idea of our space.
