Another wonderfully satisfying evening at Dave's Bistro, Grill & Bar in 1 Utama! The ambiance is even better on a Friday night when Joey Singh spins his excellent choice of old songs - so much so that after we paid the bill and had no more drinks to sip from, my friends and I did not want to go. We just sat and sat and decided to order another round of Killkenny's! Nobody comes to hard-sell more drinks and yet service is always at your finger tips!
We took too much time to figure what we wanted to eat from the 'everything-tempting' menu so Dave decided to order for us - a few items that we could share from. This is one of the best parts of his service, he uses his experience to order for us. He knows now how much our bellies can hold and the amount of food tonight was just right.
Scrumptious and delicious again, we even scrapped the mash and gravy off the bottom of the plates and the dense French butter we spread on their own-baked breads is to die for! They have so many signature dishes - and all of the meats just melt in your mouth and the crackling is so tender crispy, not hard crispy! Oh, btw, the menu is not halal and there are so many porky dishes to choose from - from whole suckling pig roasted western style to 'siew yoke' and rolled roast pork. Chicken, beef and delicious pasta and a mean Caesar's Salad too! Try their absolutely fantastic stuffed button mushrooms with REAL bacon, pureed carrot, fine mash potatoes and divine shredded spinach! Even their green garden peas are tiny tender young ones!
I walked to the back of the restaurant to view the Al Fresco dining area and was surprised that the restaurant is actually so deep! The first section has 2 private dining 'rooms' besides the open dining area. Then you walk through to the bar section which has even more tables in a regular-sized room with a long bar. I liked this sector better as it totally resembled an English pub except nicer. Only then..at the end of this..is the glass door that leads to the Al Fresco dining area with solid heavy wooden tables and chairs that looked like they were part of an Australian home BBQ yard.
You see the length of the bistro from the photo below, well....multiply what you see by 3 for the actual full size of this restaurant! Do call to make a reservation before you go as I have been told they are full most nights. That in itself says a lot about this bistro - they've been at it for more than 10 years and they are still full almost every night!
Trust me - you will love this place - its staff, the food, the drinks and on Friday nights, the music in just the right volume from clear good quality speakers! AND the prices will not cost you an arm and a leg!
It must be true! I just went the night before last and I have already gone back again!!!
Thank you David and Darren Chin! Even my friends said they will be back soon! You know you guys have clinched the right formula don't you?
