DV Ristorante Pizzeria @ Bukit Damansara with StarHero

Thanks to StarHero (which was called VibeHero previously), I was invited to a food tasting session at DV Ristorante Pizzeria at Bukit Damansara. The place is kinda secluded, but this also meant that you are able to enjoy a quite and nice meal with family and friends. It is always good to have a short getaway from the busy streets, especially when you are trying to enjoy a good meal.



Focaccia and Grissini Bread
Bread was served along with olive oil and balsamic vinegar while waiting for the group to arrive. Focaccia was served warm and fluffy on the inside; the Grissini has a crunchy bite to it. Frankly, I'd prefer Focaccia anytime!

Let's look at the antipasto of the night:

Beef Tartare Burschetta
 I love my meat raw! The beef tartare was not too bad. I'm not really a fan of bruschetta as the bread were always too hard to bite into. However, I like this bruschetta - the bread was grilled till crunchy on the outside but still easy to bite through.

Mushroom Bruschetta
The sauteed mushrooms on top was so oh-my-flavourful! Filled with the fragrance of the mushrooms.

Tomato Bruschetta
The tomato bruschetta was not nice - simple yet flavourful; but compare to the beef tartare and mushroom, I'd have to go with the mushroom bruschetta.

Eggplant Parmagiana
Any cheese super fan out there? You definitely will fall in love with this dish head over heel - layer of fried eggplant with home made tomato paste with mozzarella cheese. The eggplant were cooked till soft and coated nicely with the cheese! Yummy!!

Lamb Meatballs In Sugo al Pomodoro
This was one of my favourite dishes throughout the night. The meatballs were juicy and succulent.  Everyone one of them were just perfectly cooked.

Caprese (RM 22)
Caprese (RM 22) - Mozzarella cheese with tomato paste and basil leaves.

Tartufata

The Tartufata was yet available on the menu, but I really do wish they will add this into their menu real soon! It's really to die for! Pizza serve with mushroom and potatoes (yes! potatoes NOT pinepple...thanks God!) drizzled with some truffle oil. It was so yummy. I actually visited the restaurant few days back, and was hoping that I could order this off their menu. Sadly, it's not on the menu yet. ='(

Prosciutto e Funghi (RM 24)
The second time I went back there, we ordered the Prosciutto e Funghi (RM 24) - it's ham and mushroom with mozzarella cheese and tomato paste.

We had a forth pizza, which was the Quattor Formaggi (RM 28). It meant 4 type of cheeses - Mozzarella, gorgonzola, parmiggiano reggiano and assiago. Unfortunately, I only realized afterward that I DID NOT TAKE PHOTOS OF THIS PIZZA! It's really a disaster!!!!!

Overall, I'd recommend all of the pizzas - the thin crust was perfect and the side was crunchy. Unlike those local pizzas from the fast food chains - thick dough and the crust are always either burnt or too hard to chew on.

Fettucine Aglio Olio e Peperoncino
I've always have a thing for aglio olio, but most of the aglio olio was either too bland or the pasta would be sticking to each other. This, my friends, was perfect! It has the right amount of heat to it, and though it looked simple, the aglio olio was really a satisfying plate a pasta.

Linguine al Pesto (RM 18)
Another simple yet delicious dish - pasta served with homemade pesto sauce, pine nuts and potatoes. You could request to add parmesan cheese if you'd like to.

Spaghetti allo Scoglio (RM 28)
Spaghetti served with fish, mussels and prawns in homemade tomato sauce. I never really fancy any tomato base pasta, as most of the time they use the canned tomato paste and it doesn't taste appetizing. However, I love this dish. From this dish, you could totally taste the difference between this spaghetti and your usual ones from other restaurants. By not using the conventional canned tomato paste, the dish actually tasted way more delicious!

All of the pasta were al dente! Yummeh~~~

Braised Beef Cheek (RM 52)
The beef cheek was braised for 4 hours along with potatoes, carrots and served with greens. A superstar on that night, I must say. Everyone seems to love this dish. The meat was braised till so tender, that you could practically tear it just by using your spoon. Yes! Not fork or knife, but a spoon! The meat was really that tender that it has a melt-in-your-mouth texture. The gravy was flavourful too!

Chicken Scaloppine with Porcini Mushrooms (RM 28)
They uses organic chicken. We were informed by the owner, Frankie, that they are very choosy over the ingredients that they use in the dishes. The chicken was juicy, and the mushroom sauce was just delicious.

Peppercorn crusted Fillet of Tuna
Wasn't really a big fan of tuna, unless they are raw! The tuna were coated with peppercorn and lightly seared on the outside, and drizzled with some olive oil and capers. The fish was delicious - the peppercorn gave a slight heat to the fish, and the capers added a slight saltiness to it. Totally appetizing.

And last but not least, dessert time!


Tiramisu and Affogato
The tiramisu was good. However, their version of tiramisu does not have whisky added to it - considering there would be children dinning in the restaurant. It was moist, but I'd prefer my tiramisu to have whisky added to it.

The affogato - vanilla ice cream drowned in espresso coffee - was another of my favourite! Mainly because I love affogato. Hey, ice cream and coffee - who doesn't like this?! The warm bitter espresso totally paired perfectly with the cold and sweet vanilla ice cream.

Overall, the food here were really great! Judging that I went back there twice in 2 weeks time, I'd really highly recommend this restaurant.

Group picture time with the lovely people from StarHero, and of course the bloggers of the night!
