On The Table @ Solaris Dutamas

June 9, 2010

The latest entry at Solaris Dutamas is off to a slow start, without a fixed menu so far, but it has the potential to become one of the better outlets in this complex.

Miso soup. Right now, the kitchen offers a mishmash of everything from Japanese and Italian cuisine to Middle Eastern and Malay food.

Caprese salad. When it's done right, this is one of our favorite salads. Sweet, juicy tomatoes with soft, creamy mozzarella. What's not to love?

Fattoush. Eating healthy, for a change. Thankfully, the olives provided a wallop of flavor on what might otherwise be a relatively bland platter.

Palate-cleanser of strawberry sorbet. The service is also worth mentioning, since the restaurant staff members were genuinely gracious and helpful.

Yunikudon (beef with rice). Tasted homemade, in a good way.

Fettuccine with olive oil and prawns. Not as wonderful as what you'd find at the best Italian restaurants, but well-prepared enough to placate pasta lovers.

Beef shish kebab with rice. Can't find fault with any of the food here; there's nothing really rave-worthy, but all the ingredients taste fresh and the portions are sufficient.

Fried udon with prawns. Prices are reasonable; many dishes cost only RM15 each.

Perhaps the only problem is that booze isn't sold here, but you can bring your own, with no corkage charge (for now).

On The Table,
Solaris Dutamas.
