Dave's Bistro Bar & Grill, 1 Utama

>> Tuesday, March 20, 2012

Venue: Dave's Bistro Bar & Grill, 1 Utama
Occasion: Dinner with girlfriends
Overall comment: As mentioned by most patrons of Dave's Bistro, the food here is worthy of praise & recommendation. I felt that it's a little pricey though, but since I bought the 50% off coupon deal from Hahah.com.my, I thought it was not too bad for the overall bill.
Halal: No

Dave's has been around for as long as I could remember. But surprise, surprise, I have never walked into this restaurant since it started! Hahaha....yeah, for one, I rarely go to 1 Utama unless I really needed to (and I wouldn't be bothered going to a shopping mall unless I have to). This restaurant was previously called Dave's Pizza Pasta Vino before it was renovated & walla! its name changed as well!

I've heard loads about good pasta at Dave's. Since there was a promotion by a coupon deal website, Hahah.com.my, I decided to buy some coupons & try this place out for the very first time (last month - yes, I know, it's another way overdue post). It was intended as a V-day venue thingie, but since AP can't make it to town, I spent the evening at Dave's with 2 good friends ;)

Live Band at Dave's Bistro
We were there on Saturday, so the live band was playing not-too-bad music. It was a 'lil too loud, but still bearable for me. My friends felt uncomfy though...hahaha...If you come over on weekdays, you could actually get 50% off selected pastas - that's quite a deal considering their pastas are on the higher end of prices (RM23.00 - RM45.00/serving).

German-Style Crispy Pork Knuckle (RM60.00/serving)
I didn't find this that good. The skin wasn't totally crispy as its name speaks. Plus the meat wasn't totally tender as well *sigh* Frankly speaking, I was quite disappointed. To pay so much for something that didn't make its worth...wergh...

Squid Ink Spaghetti Olio Style (RM45.00/serving) & Classic Capriciosa (RM32.00/regular)
It's my 1st time having squid ink pasta...well, for one, there's no way to "taste" how squid ink tastes like...when the dish was presented at our table, the 1st thing that came to my mind was "Hokkien-style braised yee mee"! Hey, it does look like it, k? It doesn't taste very much like spaghetti too...perhaps my mind kept telling me that it's "fook kin chow yee meen"...hahaha...
The pizza on the other hand was not too bad. Compared to the wood-fire pizza I had at Desa Sri Hartamas' Pizza Brava (I've yet to blog - soon, soon), which could fetch at least 75%, this one just fares around 50%? There's nothing much to complain in terms of taste, but texture & "umph" somehow is WAY better at Pizza Brava (in my personal opinion). The dough/pastry is thinner at Pizza Brava. It's not as filling at the one at Dave's but somehow it tastes nicer overall.

I think I won't mind going to Dave's again for their pastas during weekdays. But if I want something more pocket-friendly, no doubt, I'll still head to Vary Pasta at Damansara Jaya for their pastas :)

HenRy LeE: I KNOW!! If not for the voucher, we would need to pay SO MUCH MORE! Thank goodness the voucher is a 50% off from the total bill...it's expensive & not really nice also :(
