Known for its great coffee and pasta, Dcova has introduced a new list of food items which look exciting and promising. They are set to cater for current needs. The new menu of this cafe has brought the standard of the cafe to a whole new level.
Spaghetti Alle Vongole – RM27.90. Cooked with an abundance of clams, garlic, olive oil, bird’s eye chili and a touch of pepper.
This spaghetti was packed with freshness and sweetness of the clams. The slight spiciness of the spaghetti was an additional booster to its flavours. This is one of the dishes that I would come back for.
Tomato Spaghetti – RM26.90, cooked with fresh tomatoes and tossed with herbs, clams and prawns before topping it with pepper and coriander.
This pasta is an appetizing alternative as the sauce was made from fresh tomatoes which tasted sourish and refreshing. Topping it with clams and prawns had further enhanced the dish to give it some richness from the seafood.
Pesta Pesto – RM25.90, This dish is a combination of pesto sauce which was made from fresh basil leaves, garlic and olive oil. Serving together with it were fresh mushrooms, cherry tomatoes and back bacon.
The taste of fresh green pesto sauce blended very well with the bacon. This dish was so addictive that I would not be able to stop myself for more.
Pasta Al Nero di Seppia – RM27.90. Squid ink is said to be beneficial to our health. So why not trying Dcova’s squid ink pasta? The shiny black texture of the pasta was contrasted with the bright orange ebiko, slices of squids and cherry tomatoes.
Compare to some other squid ink pasta, the uniqueness of this dish is the ink itself which had no fishy seafood scent and the inclusion of ebiko made this dish even more outstanding.
Sakura Ebi Pasta – RM26.90, pasta which was cooked with sakura ebi imported from Japan. This dish is only available during the Sakura Ebi season.
The fusion of pasta with Japanese Ebi is something really special. The crunchiness of the ebi complemented very well with the pasta.
Italian-Japanese fusion Teriyaki Tori – RM26.90. Succulent chunks of marinated chicken thigh sauteed in Teriyaki sauce all the way from Japan.
This is another great fusion by the chef. The slightly sweet teriyaki sauce certainly made a nice twist when it is served with pasta.
To welcome this coming festive season, which is Christmas, DCOVA has prepared a great take away for their diners. With a minimum spending of RM150 and above, a loaf of fruit cake will be yours to take home!
Overall, the food here was prepared with passion and great innovation. The price was definitely resonable as the portion was generous and the ingredients used were of top grade quality. The only drawback is the difficulty to get parking around this place.
