Makes me happy…

We have not been here for a long time for no apparent reason. At one time, it looked like they were doing some renovations and for a while, we thought they had called it a day. Then, we heard that they were still open for business and the other day, we decided to drop by.

The menu remained unchanged, more or less but the people did not look very familiar. We just ordered what we used to enjoy very much, their  Bracio di Ferro or spinach and egg pizza (RM32.00)…

…which was very good, as always.

My girl wanted the lasagne (RM28.00)…


…which she liked. Personally I am just ok with that as I am not so into the tomato-based bolognese sauce.

The Ceasar salad (RM18.00)…

…was good too and I also asked for their fried calamari (RM16.00)…

…which initially, we had agreed to leave out in case we could not finish everything but when I was doing the ordering, it just slipped my mind. I guess old folks are like that, very absent-minded but we sure were glad I did because it was really very nice, dipped in the lovely own-made tomato salsa that came with it, nicer than any I had anywhere else around town. We sure would want it again the next time we come here.

There were two young and sweet girls waiting at the tables, very friendly and efficient and both spoke very good English. That sure made me happy and I was indeed very impressed, so much so that since there was no 10% service charge on the bill, I left them that, around 10%, as their tip.

Looking at my old posts on this place, it is obvious that the prices of everything have gone up but then again, what hasn’t? As long as they can maintain the quality of the food served here and with the very pleasant and excellent service from the staff, we would come back again, that’s for sure!

BISTECCA & BISTRO (2.307630, 111.848188) is located off Jalan Sena – you drive into the area of shops directly opposite SMK Deshon and go straight to the end, make a u-turn and head back to where you come from – you will see it in the first block of shops on your left.

  1. All looks good! I like your daughter’s choice… lasagne..

    The kitchen staff looked unfamiliar and very young – glad they have maintained the quality of the food served, very nice. I’m only into Payung’s own-made bolognese sauce, using fresh tomatoes and Italian herbs – elsewhere, it is like eating tomato sauce, not quite my favourite.

  2. The Ceasar salad and fried calamari looks great. I would love to have them.

    Both good, the calamari especially! A taste of its own, dunno what they added to the batter, so much nicer than elsewhere.

  3. prices have no other way to go, but UP UP UP.. and away! 🙂

    All that talk about all the harapan came to nought, such a disappointment, never been this bad!

  4. It’s wonderful that the quality of the food has remained consistent. The fried calamari sure looks good and crispy.

    I wonder what ingredients they had in the batter, so very nice. Other places, it’s usually ordinary batter and they give you mayo to dip it in…and they call it salad sotong. This one is definitely a cut above the rest!
