He made me decide on the dining place after the many times I refused by saying ..
"I anything also ok wan"
"Up to you"
"You decide la since you're more picky and particular"
So, after reading pages after pages of food blogs, I finally landed on Opus Bistro at Bangsar, thanks to a convincing entry by kampungboycitygal.com. Read here.
My expectations the moment I read the reviews were sky high but it crumbled a lil when they failed to answer the phone despite me calling numerous times over a period of half an hour just to book a place for two. I had to leave my name and contact, hoping they would return my call.
Backup plan? Italiannies :)
They did call me back. At 3 pm. I thought the place was available for lunch as well.
So, anyway, we arrived Opus Bistro at 9.15 pm. Then the rating for this place started to pick up. The staff were very attentive. Water was constantly being refilled, plates were cleared in a proper manner, etc. Nice :)
Now, the food! We had creme of mushroom soup (RM 15) for starters, Spaghetti alla Opus (RM 22) and honeydew juice (RM 11) for the lady and Opus famous roasted cod with lemon caper sauce (RM 56) for him.
The spaghetti, served with mixed seafood with fresh tomato and chardonnay sause, was the dish that made them famous and was highly recommended by kampungboycitygal.com
I must say, I was really impressed. Fresh seafood!
The roasted cod, which was the customers' all time favourite, were fantastic but the sause was a tad too salty. It's still a recommended dish, though :)
We spent the rest of the night, talking and .. talking. Kind of a get to know each other better session. A lil weird, considering we've known each other for many years.
We left the place at midnight. Time flies when one's having fun :)
