*~ Craft Brews @ Mutiara Damansara ~*

So, i had used the free voucher from Craft Brews yesterday for dinner together with boyfriend and mum. I seriously fall in love with the ambiance there. Cozy, spacious, and nice songs. It looks like a place for fine dining but with a closer look, the staffs there wear casual. Boyfriend said, "Like farmers." But to me, they are better than that.

The beer bottles are used to decorate the place. The unique beer bottle packaging reminds me of Kung Fu Panda. Don't ask me why because i don't know how to explain to you but i like it.

The complimentary soup.
I know it is a tomato-based soup but it was really sour and at the same time, a little bit salty to me. Is it a good thing having this as a starter so that the customers will crave further for the main course?

Craft Brews Pasta.
A cream-based pasta with bacon strips and sliced shiitake mushrooms. Instead of using parsley to garnish, they use bacon strips. And usually, we see parsley is the only green veggie we can find sitting on top of the pasta but this is different. They actually toss the pasta together with veggie. Not forgetting, the pasta comes with a generous amount of sliced mushrooms.

Lemon Grass Butter Dory Fillet
...that is served with a generous portion of coleslaw. The fish tasted a bit of alkaline and it was a little bit salty. Perhaps, the alkaline taste was due to the flour they used. But no doubt that the capers and white wine (if i were not mistaken) infused cream sauce is superb!

Malt and Maple Glazed Ribs.
The meat is so tender and juicy. And the moment i cut the meat, i could smell vinegar. Aww... Delicious! But wait, i thought the ribs were going to be real sweet because of malt and maple. Still delicious, anyway. Boyfriend was the one having this but i just took a rib from him. And everytime i just wanted to look at him eating, he would accuse me of wanting the whole plate. =/ Anyway, boyfriend and i have the same thought that it would be nicer if they had served the baked potato wedges like Christang instead of this crunchy fried wedges though it was still nice to eat. But the combination would have been better with the baked potato wedges.

When the bill came, i was smiling all the way. You know what certain businesses do, for example, when they say, "Buy one and get one free... The free item will the one with the price lower than what you're paying for." Since, it was a table for three and we supposed to get free meal for two, i expected that we needed to pay for the most expensive one. I was wrong! Don't understand? Look at the receipt below and you will understand.

Mum was happy with the food. She kept on saying that the next time i plan for anyone's birthday or for my own birthday, i shall have it here. I also could not believe it when she told me the price is pretty reasonable. And it is so easy to reach this restaurant. As long as the Tesco at Mutiara Damansara is on your left, just go straight until you reach the junction. At the junction, just look front left and Craft Brews is there!

Dearest beer lovers, this is a place for you all with different types of beers that you can't find at anywhere else. For more info, visit Craft Brews' Facebook page. I will definitely come back again especially for the beer since i did not get to try it this time. If bro read this, i think he would go. Or perhaps, he really should give it a try.
