Dave's @ 1 Utama

Hello everybody, I am back! Over da holidays, when I thought that KL/PJ would be a ghost city, it turned out to be rather unusual as compare to previous years where this time around, shopping malls were jam-packed with people while da roads were jam-packed with cars! Just so different.....

Anyways, on da very first day of Raya, we were at 1 Utama to grab some storage boxes cause it's time to clean and clear as new year is coming soon! Believe it or not, I went in and out from Jusco back to my house twice on that day just to grab da storage boxes. I think I've more than 10 different sizes and colours of da storage boxes back at home now. Lol..... Just when we thought that it would be a good idea to have dinner outside 1 Utama after we grab da storage boxes, all of a sudden, it was raining cats and dogs!!!! :( Ah well, darling suggested to have dinner at Dave's instead.

Freestyle Menu presented by Chef Darren Chin @ Dave's

Located at da same row of Seed Cafe and Chuai Heng Restaurant, Dave's has been in the business for many years now and I remember that da last time I actually dined in at this place was with my best friend and her-then bf (now hubby) and another two of my good friends which was like 8-9 years ago!

Let's cut short da story and check out da food we had ;)

For Entree, we had Stuffed Mushrooms. Priced at RM 18.50, there were 5 pcs of Button Mushrooms and each of da Button Mushrooms were very well stuffed with Pork Bacon, Cream, Morzarella, topped with Tomato Salsa and Truffle Oil. Served together with Salad, it was quite good and yummy. However, I wasn't quite happy that da Entree came after our Mains. I am sure it would taste much better if they'd served it before our Mains.

For Mains, we had a Half Slab of Baby Pork Back Ribs. Priced at RM 45 per plate, this item wasn't in da menu yet and it was highly recommended by one of da staff. I must say that this savory baby back ribs were grilled to perfection and da meat was so tender! Da seasoning was awesome and quite a good combination to serve it with Mashed Potatoes and some mixed Vegetables like Broccoli and Asparagus. Yummy, yummy, yummy!

Ooo lah lah, finger lickin' good Baby Back Ribs!

If you know us well enough, you will definitely know that one main course will never be enough for us as we are are both big eaters, lol! I was somehow craving for pasta hence I'd decided to order this special "Kung Po" sauce Seafood Angel Hair Pasta. Whoaaa... to tell you da truth, it was my first time eating pasta that way and for da price of RM 30 per plate, it was absolutely yummy! This "Kung Po" sauce gave me da Oooommmmmphhhhhh feeling and it was quite spicy though. There were Mussels, Fish Fillets, Prawns, Squids, Clams..... loved it, loved it!!!!!! ;)

Dessert time, we had Tiramisu in a cocktail glass. Hmmm.... not cheap, RM 15 for this not so yummy Tiramisu. Infact, it tasted really bad cause it was flavourless except for da cocoa powder on top and da filling was extremely wet! I supposed a good Tiramisu should actively dissolve in one's mouth but it didn't. Furthermore, it's really supa dupa expensive!!!! Darling said that da one I made tasted so much better than this. So, can you imagine how bad it was? Booooooo.......

Tiramisu was really bad and I wasn't satisfied at all hence we ordered this Ice Blended Oreo Kahlua to end our meal. Priced at RM 14 per glass, whoaaaaaaaa.... creamy and yummy! I am loving it ;)

Overall, it was a good meal but definitely not with decent prices. Do check out this place for their Ribs cause they are really not bad and if you fancy Pizzas, they have it in da menu too ;)
