If you are in the Taman Tun Dr Ismail neighbourhood and would like to have a drink, chill out with friends in a friendly casual bar/restaurant, give D Legends Bar a try.
Newly set up some months ago by a group of buddies, the outlet is run with Hans at the helm - a cheerful down-to-earth personable young man. When you speak to him, you get a deep sense of passion and commitment from someone who's very much into the F& B business. The pricing in D' Legends, ranging from beer to food, is really very reasonable and when I asked Hans how they expect to make run a profitable joint, his answer was a nochalant "It really depends on how much money you want to make, at the end of the day! And how happy you are."
I like his philosophy.
So what kinda reasonably-priced food are we talking about? Top on their list is this...
D Legends Pork Burger (RM15)
A thick fat minced pork pattie - it's like 3x thicker than the bun, full of flavour from the herbs and spices, hand-made by Han's kitchen crew, headed by none other than his mom and aunt! Top that thick fat pattie with a slice of melting cheese... it's burger heaven!
You can get a variety of Indian-influenced starters in D Legends...
Indian-style chicken curry puff, served with mint chutney
My friends love their Chiken Tikka (RM12) ... they have perfected the art of grilling chicken breastmeat to NOT result in a dry or hard texture. At first, I didn't realise it was chicken breast because the Chicken Tikka cutlets were juicy, tender and fabulous with the masala spices marinated in them!
Prawn Tapas (RM14)
We absolutely loved this! Succulent pranws in a thick creamy buttery sauce flavoured with lots of garlic & other herbs, we practically mopped the whole dish clean with the slices of French loaf.
Mushroom Tapas (RM10)
Another winner - fresh mushrooms saute'ed in olive oil before being cooked in a garlicky creamy sauce.
If you want something a bit more "substantial" to go with your drinks, try their D Legends Pizza (RM18) ...
thin crust pizza topped with chicken ham, sausages, onions and chilli and generous amount of cheese!
I like their funky deco... walls adorned with artsy sketches of famous artistes... MJ's my favourite
