Review: Vin's Restaurant & Bar

>> Wednesday, October 27, 2010

Venue: Vin's Restaurant & Bar, TTDI
Occasion: Farewell dinner for Kenny
Overall comment: I thought the food there was good! Furthermore, because we know one of the chefs (James Ong) there, he recommended us to their best sellers & ah, we enjoyed ourselves! For those who are looking for a drinking & chit-chat place, Vin's has an extensive variety of wine & alcohol for chilling out :)
Halal: No (alcohol is served at Vin's)

Message: Kenny, I know this post is out terribly late, but it's finally out :P

Thanks to Chef James Ong, we had a great time of food, laughter, & drinks! Indeed, it was a good decision to dine here! *throws confetti into the air*

 The exterior of Vin's
Tucked in the heart of Taman Tun Dr Ismail near Bandar Utama, surrounded by residential areas, you'll come across this classic, yet humble looking restaurant. Vin's is a great place for a delicious meal at an affordable price, accompanied by some quality wine/liqour.

 Some history...

I was at Vin's for a small farewell dinner with Kenny. Here are some of Chef James Ong's recommendations:

Vin's Chic Tikka Masala with Foccacia Bread (RM18.00/serving)
Boneless chicken that is lightly spiced with our secret spice mix. Lip smacking!
This was the bomb of the night...It was a terrific starter & we wanted to order another serving, but we still had so many dishes to savor! :D The chicken tikka masala was delectable! Thick, fragrant "pepperish/slightly spicy paste" with chunks of chicken. The soft foccacia bread went extremely well with the masala. No words suffice...you have to try it for yourself...I kid you not!

Excellent White & Red Wine (complimentary a.k.a. billed to Chef James Ong)
Bliss...Great dinner with some quality wine just makes us go wheeee.........

Lasagna Al Forno (RM28.90/serving)
Beef in tomato & herb base sauce lined with layers of thin pasta topped with mozzarella cheese
Almost everything that we ordered were either meaty or cheesy...fuh...SO fattening, but SO good!

Vin's Special Club (RM23.90/serving) -- taken off the menu as of 26th Oct 2010
Beef bacon, egg, ham, lettuces, tomatoes, & cheese smacked between 4 layers of bread!
The fries were crispy on the outside & soft on the inside, while the sandwich was too thick for my mouth! Hahaha...I had difficulties eating the whole sandwich, but it was a nourishing meal ;) Nothing extremely spectacular, but I love the colors!

Kenny & I enjoying the wine :)

Spicy Lamb Bolognaise (RM26.90/serving)
I must say that the wine goes extremely well with this dish...especially the red wine! (red meat with red wine...ahh...) This was my 1st time trying out a lamb bolognaise pasta. It goes really well with the Angel's Hair pasta instead of the usual spaghetti :) Furthermore, the slight spiciness of the minced meat blended perfectly with the pasta & gave the pasta a "new feel & taste". This was our favourite dish for the night! Very appetizing :)

Pasta Carbonara (RM25.90/serving)
Specially cooked for us by chef James Ong! :) This was excellent! The pasta was "correctly" prepared using eggs (instead of the common cream-based available in many restaurants in Malaysia), & well blended with the fragrantly fried beef bacon. You have to try it out for yourself!

King of Absinthe -EXTRA STRONG, PURE
We did not have this, of course! It's EXTRA STRONG alcohol - 92%!! I'm not an alcohol-lover, so I can't comment much nor tell you more on what this alcohol is like & what is is made from. We were just fascinated by the extremely high alcohol content & the shape of the bottle too :D

Vin's Bar
Name it & Vin's may just have something that you want! ;)

Apart from the recommended dishes featured above, Vin's also offers a wide variety of sandwiches, pizza, chops, salads, & of course, more pasta! So, if you're looking around for a cosy place for lunch/dinner, or even just a place for some drinks & chit-chat, do give Vin's a try. I'm quite certain that you won't be disappointed, especially if you order those that are recommended by chef James Ong & his dedicated team at the restaurant! :) I would love to head there again sometime soon! *yums*
