Monte’s Restaurant & Wine Bar @ Bangsar Shopping Centre

Monte’s Restaurant & Wine Bar at Bangsar Shopping Centre is a good place for family meals, quiet dates and business lunches/dinners. As a kid, I remember following my dad there when he had his casual business meetings – and I always got to order the Chicken Maryland. Many years later and after a new face lift, Monte’s still hasn’t lost its charm. Families, young lovers and business people are still seen patronising the restaurant. We were there for dinner recently, and the food was still hearty and comforting. I liked the nachos, which was generously topped with chicken pieces and a thick layer of cheese. Mum however, wasn’t too pleased with the amount of cholesterol we were consuming.
The food preparation was still a bit old school; most of the dishes came with a standard side of broiled vegetables and brown gravy. Cajun chicken (RM22) was one of them. The chicken chop was lightly seasoned and pan-fried till the edges were crisp.Mushroom chicken (RM18) has always been my brother’s order; ever since he was a child. The china man likes this because it comes with a side of herbed rice and vegetables. LOL

Norwegian Salmon Steak

My sister had the Norwegian Salmon Steak (RM29), and my mum, the Grilled Halibut (RM33). Between the two, I liked the Salmon better. The halibut was a tad too plain for my liking.

Grilled Halibut

Feeling carnivorous, I ordered the braised lamb shank (RM28). Portion was big enough to feed a hungry caveman, but sadly, the brown gravy lacked flavour. I fixed it with a few dashes of pepper and salt.
The food at Monte’s is fuss-free, hearty and somewhat affordable considering its location (Bangsar Shopping Centre). While the food isn’t fantastic, I like coming here every now and then for some of my old favourites.Ambiance: 6.5/10
Price: 6/10
Food: 5.5/10 (pork-free)
Verdict: Fuss-free, hearty dishes at reasonable prices.

    Joe – Dunno why…but the fried banana was most appealing when I was a kid!

Drunken chicken noodles for lunch today. Just average in my opinion and expensive too. #foodporn #lunch #photooftheday #igdaily
