Dubrovnik Restaurant KL @ Solaris Mont Kiara

After hearing so much about Dubrovnik, we decided to head there for a bout of Croatian cuisine. It's very easy to find this place as the restaurant is facing the main inner road but the address will have you looking high and low for Block J =.=

Complimentary starter
We were served some complimentary homemade bread and Ajvar which is some sort of sourish Croatian salsa. The warm bread which was cut into strips was a bit doughy and chewy. The salsa is not the typical sort found in Mexican restaurants as it was a little sour and in a paste form rather than the usual cubed tomatoes. JS enjoyed it but I didn't -_-"
Cevapi & Djuvedj (RM 36)
We had an order of Cevapi (minced lamb and beef sausages) and Djuvedj (special vegetable Croatian rice) with a side of salad and Ajvar. The seared sausages were very compact and even though there were only 6 of them, it filled us up very quickly. They were very fragrant, possibly had some spices and were still moist and juicy.
The fluffy Djuvedj tasted like it was boiled in some kind of vegetable stock and went very well with the cubed onions and carrots mixed into the rice. The Ajvar is meant to contrast the taste of the sausages.
Spaghetti Alla Buzara (RM 34)
After reading much reviews about this exceptionally good pasta, we decided to order it as we wanted to try more stuff (Lamb Peka is supposedly extremely good and was available the day we were there but it was a platter for 2).
The olive oil and white wine sauce pasta was nice but fell short of our expectations as it was similar to the typical Italian fare and didn't taste "Croatian" enough =P I love that lots of parsley was mixed into the pasta though =) The prawns were fresh and yummy but the downside was that they were not shelled >.<
Overall, Restaurant Dubrovnik is a fine place to go to for special occasions as the waiters and waitresses are well trained and very attentive and the ambience is quite romantic. As JS said, we had waiter of the month at our table =P
