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 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.
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?
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.
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.
