Sunday Brunch @ DV Bukit Damansara

September 28, 2012

Returning to Bukit Damansara's DV, this time for its Sunday semi-buffet, sparkling-booze brunch.
Earlier entry on DV Ristorante Pizzeria's a la carte menu: Sept. 20, 2012.

Three-hour feasts start 11:30 a.m. every Sunday at this friendly neighborhood Italian eatery that's fast winning a following for its reliable food and service.

Leap out of bed and head here in T-shirts, shorts and slippers; the easy-going vibe that makes DV so welcoming in the evening is even more prevalent for brunch.

A host of healthy-looking light bites take center stage on DV's counter.

On a recent Sunday, we encountered the likes of eggplant parmigiana, chicken-and-bean salad, grilled veggies and zucchini stuffed with turkey ham and cheese.

Toss a cool salad together, then try DV's warm, tangy minestrone.

Sufficient seafood, from prawns to baby octopus braised in tomato sauce.

Bruschetta, beef skewers, watercress with walnuts and smoked salmon: the spread isn't fancy, but everything's well thought-out and well worth nibbling here.

Folks can pay RM70+ for the semi-buffet, which includes an Aperol Spritz cocktail or soft drink.

Add an extra RM80+ for a free flow of prosecco and red and white wines, all very nice.

The starters are of the eat-all-you-can variety, but the brunch main courses are order-once.

Our mains: full plates of risotto and substantial portions of chicken scallopine with polenta and prawns with pesto and parmesan (each customer gets all of these) ...

... plus wonderfully braised beef cheek, which makes the RM70+ brunch cost a very fair bargain. Our word to the wise: save space for these mains.

Gorgonzola, asiago and grana padano populate the cheese section.

Desserts are limited; still satisfactory but not the stars of this brunch.

Solid fruit selection, including plump strawberries, grapes, kiwi and dragon fruit.
