Nachos and more @ Dave's Pizza, Pasta, Vino, 1 (One) Utama, Bandar Utama

>> Jan 13, 2010

A couple of years back, Tiffanie actually introduced me to this place. She told me that this place has the best nachos that she knew off (which so far has been quite true). Dave's is located inside One Utama, in between the old wing and the new wing (2 doors from Canton-i), on the same floor as TGIF.





Dave's Cafe

Dave is a non-halal restaurant that serves some porky goodness (baby back ribs, pork knuckles, pork belly etc). Best of all, they use pork bacon, ham and salamis on their pizzas. One of the rare places in Malaysia that you can actually find not too bad pork dishes.

Anyway, this time round, I wasn't craving for pork, and as it was a weekday, Dave's has a 50% discount on ordinary pastas. Thus, we went for the carbs instead. However, I have tried their pork dishes and I have to say their baby back ribs and pork knuckles were just average (but could be worth eating).

Our total order was 3 Cookie and Cream milkshakes (RM10 each), a Chocolate Banana milkshake (RM10), a plate of beef nachos (RM22), Caesar Salad (RM19), Salmon and Spinach Pasta (RM38) and Meatballs and Mushroom Pasta (RM28).

Some of the pasta dishes had a 50% off to them for lunch on weekdays. Anyway, lets get down to the food.



Cookie n Cream (left) & Chocolate Banana (right) Milkshake

Well, milkshakes are just milkshakes. The milkshakes here was off the correct texture and not too diluted. Its quite hard to screw up a drink like a milkshake (although some restaurant still manage to do so which still amazes me). The milkshake at Dave's was not too bad, but nothing spectacular. How great can milkshake be?



Beef Nachos

I really like the nachos at this place. Definitely fare superior to the nachos you can get at Chili's (which standard has dropped way below average). The salsa and sour cream went well with cheese laden beefy nachos. The only thing missing was the guacamole. However, I could live without it. I still loved the nachos.



Caesar Salad

Caesar salad is one of Dave's Signature dishes. The salad is topped with an anchovy and egg emulsion, cheese (grana padano), bits of crispy bacon, garlic croutons, boiled quail eggs and some tomato salsa. Definitely one of the better caesar salad that I've tasted.



Salmon & Spinach Pasta



Meatball & Mushroom Pasta

The pastas were alright. Nothing really much to talk about it. Something that won't go wrong here.

I would certainly want to come back to Dave's. I normally patron this place just for their nachos. Anything else is just a side order. So, if you're craving for good nachos, you know where to go.

I have been going to Dave's since 3 years back. Although a little pricey, I have never been disappointed. I usually have a go at their pork. Goes well with a good glass of Guiness. A good write up. CHEERS!

@RAY: glad to know that..

@pikey: hahaha.. yea.. but then again, it makes me not wanna go for other things.. even their appetizers end up costing more than their pastas..

@noobie: the meal came up to about rm130 for 4 people.. I think it was ok.. the pastas were having 50% off as it was a weekday... they only do the 50% of lunches on weekdays..
