Christmas Eve @ DV Ristorante Pizzeria

Christmas, Foodie Trail, DV Ristorante Pizzeria, Damansara Heights,
Christmas with an Italian twist awaits you at DV Ristorante Pizzeria. Nestled in the quieter and cozier side of Damansara Heights, go ahead and enjoy your Christmas Eve celebrations as if you are at home. The restaurant itself is simple but bears a lovely Christmas touch with a Christmas tree to greet you as you step in and pretty Poinsiettas placed strategically.

The menu for RM170+ for a 4-course meal comes with a free glass of Prosecco. And if you love the Prosecco, you can always opt to order n additional glass at RM24 or RM140 for a bottle of Ruffino Prosecco. The latter being a better deal! If you don't fancy bubblies, you can always opt for some mocktails with 2 created specially for this Christmas - Rudolf (peach, pomegranate, Grenadine) and Santarina (Grenadine, orange juice, sparkling lemonade, soda water). They both look adorable and taste festive enough though I will stick to my Prosecco.

I love warm bread. Served with some olive oil and balsamic vinegar, its just the perfect start to a good meal while waiting for the dishes to be served. Service at DV Ristorante is prompt so I do not run the risk of indulging in too much breads!

The starter Bresaola Wrapped Scallops is the perfect dish to whet one's appetite for the rest of the dishes to arrive. Juicy pan seared scallops wrapped in bresaola (salted air-dried beef) served with aragula, Sicilian blood oranges, cherry tomatoes and shaved pecorino on a bed of quinoa. Its a nice balance of flavours, in fact umami!

Entree is Tortelloni in Double-Boiled Consomme. Can't fault a simple but absolutely delicious serving of chicken broth with house-made dumplings. The filling of chicken and beef ham is just perfect with the simple broth. The whole dish gets better with a slice of flavourful crostini. A lovely combination indeed as all of us cleaned up our plates leaving just the thyme behind.

Take your pick of 3 mains. No turkey on the menu but I am not complaining because the options are really tastier than the conventional turkey on most Christmas menus.

Veal Involtini is perhaps the prettiest of the 3 mains with a pretty arrangement and garden colours to stir your appetite. A well thought roulade of organic purple spinach, silver anchovies and sauteed shallots. This pretty plate gets better with a side of seared foie gras on caramelised apple, pumpkin puree, green beans and carrot kernels. Lots of flavours in a plate but it all compliments each other. In fact this is the hubster's obvious favourite.

Humble looking but its a typical homely Italian dish that I had the privy of enjoying when my Italian pals whipped it out to remind them of their Italian hometowns. Bollito Misto is a comforting stew of beef cheek, ox tongue, chicken and sausage. Its aromatic and a perfect meal on its own. Love the richness of the broth that I happily slurped it all up. Lovely with some breads too if you fancy some carbs. Served with a colourful plate of pickled vegetables to add balance to this robust stew.

The "lightest' option of the 3 mains will be the Monk Fish Fillet. Pan seared with some pepper and salt to taste. Served with mixed lentils, scallops, asparagus tips and a boiled quail egg, it is my definition of a healthy protein rich meal.

Classic Christmassy touch to end our meal - Panettone. House made sweet bread served with Chantilly cream and chocolate. I was quite stuffed by now but nothing went to waste because the hubster happily inherited whatever thatw as left on my plate. The boy absolutely adored the fresh goodness of the whole bread and creamy works.
