This place looks like a dream!
Another place I always wanted to check out for lunch, and today, we finally got to meander along the The Waterfront, at Desa Park City KL.
The only setback to this place really taking off, I foresee, might just be its location.
For anyone coming from the PJ side of town, the hefty RM1.60 toll/per way makes you think twice about venturing here for food.
On the other hand, the people of Kepong who are on the “correct” side of town, are so use to having cheap and good food so readily available that perhaps the ‘poshness’ of Desa park city does not pose enough of an attraction for them to eat here on a regular basis.
Well, how successful the waterfront turns out to be, still remains to be seen, but at the moment, things are still relatively quiet.
Fitou’s promotion of Paella , a massive pan for 4 persons priced at RM70 is pretty reasonable. But looking around.. where was the crowd to share it…
A breathtaking view.. under the hot noonday sun, the heat is unbearable but I can imagine how gorgeously vast and serene this place might look by candlelight! (I plan to come back for dinner and drinks real soon;))
Nicoise Salad – RM19.00
This was pretty average. The tuna was a little gritty in texture but the overall taste was not bad. I like my egg with a slightly moist yellow centre(not well done) but this one was hard.
The mushroom Cappuccino – RM 12.00 and the Seafood Chowder – RM17.00
The soups were good. Value for money as you can see by the size of the mussels.
Iberico Aglio Olio – RM38.00
The promotion for the week was IBERICO. i.e. the pig!… and we just had to try it.
Hmmm, the pasta was pretty healthy. Not much salt was used(which is a good thing) making this dish light and almost weak (?) in taste . Not enough Porky oomph.. 🙁
Iberico Ribs – RM41.00
We ended up eating the RIBS with the pasta.. this was much better! The sauce from the ribs was sweet, strong and meaty. I liked the slightly caramelized texture of the ribs. However, RM41.00 for a few small slices of rib was really rather steep!
All in all, even though Fitou is not quite there yet in terms of food.. it has all the potential of becoming a really cool hangout place, and a good restaurant for your Mediterranean ‘fix’. If nothing else, than Fitou is a charming little nook where you can enjoy a quiet evening over a warm meal and a cold beer, with your friends and/or loved ones.. !
