David's Diner@Greentown Square

" How's everything?"
" Great, especially the Shepherd's Pie - is so heavenly!"
" Thank you, I hope you guys enjoyed the food."
"Is this your secret recipe?"
" Oh, yeah, I am from the States, married to a Malaysian Indian and started this restaurant."
" Is your husband the chef?"
"No, no, I hired an ex-hotel kitchen chef to help me."

That was our conversation with Dee Jay, the friendly lady boss of David's Diner. It's already 5 months since this restaurant opened for business. I am sure it has already passed the acid test for a restaurant survivor! A little bird told me the restaurant's business is quite good.
According to to Dee Jay, she and her husband enjoys food to the core, she decided to start the restaurant to share her authentic America's recipe, of course, as a time pass as well.

It was am impromptu decision to dine at David's, anyhow, the dining experience turned out to be satisfactory!
We ordered another Salmon Steak Set - c/w salad or soup PLUS 2 side dishes of your choice. I chose coleslaw and baked potato - RM 24.90

The baked potato with sour cream was succulent!

Since it was a birthday treat for my friend, I decided buy her something sweet to complete the meal. We ordered Pudding Sundae - something really special with pudding cream. It was luscious - highly recommended ice-cream lover to check this out!

Nevertheless, Dee Jay's handmade pastries are available at David's Diner.

I bought one brownie walnut to try, taste good, just that it's bit too sweet for my tooth.

Overall dining experience was good. We had a scrumptious meal. Worth to pay a visit, especially for their shepherd's pie.

A little complaints: I am not so happy with the exorbitant 10% service charge, as sky juice is not free also...and there's one blur waitress, which said, "I do not." when I asked her about the desription of a few item in the menu. I told her, "You cannot tell me you don't know, as a waitress here,I expect you to know."

My Taste Heaven said...

I was wondering where is this Georgetown Square in Penang. Then, only saw it's Greentown instead of Georgetown, that means I can only try it when I go to Ipoh. :(

SimpleGirl said...

I didn't go to David's Diner for a long long time, recently saw their signboard has changed, I really have a feeling they have changed management?!!!Hope the food quality can be still good
