Vintage Wine Bar and Restaurant @ IOI Boulevard, Puchong

I came upon this deal on Groupon and decided to try it out as it's not that far from my place and someone told us that the pasta portion is really big =P I bought 2 Groupons, so brought Leafy with me to eat together =D

Went there last Saturday for lunch, when I reach there it seems like I'm the 1st customer haha.

They have a menu specially for the Groupon customers to choose their pastas and special drinks

Their ala carte menu

I ordered Carbonara with Ham and Mushroom, and Leafy chose Aglio e Olio. We ordered a side dish, Fried Mozzarella Cheese (don't really remember the name d) as well.

My Ice Lemon Tea (to tell the truth, it tasted like Honey Lemon more than Ice Lemon Tea =x)

His Ahmad Green Tea

Finally there starters here!

But I'm kinda disappointed la that the soup of the day is Pumpkin Soup coz I don't drink 1. It's thick, and quite sweet but I wanted something salty T.T The worst part is when I saw a couple sitting behind us using the Groupon too gets Mushroom soup instead of Pumpkin soup! Hey I thought you are not allowed to choose your soup? =/

Then the egg salad came~ If you are my friends you would know that I don't eat vege, but I gave it a try anyway and guess what? It's not that bad afterall XD

My Carbonara with Ham and Mushroom~

Leafy's Aglio e Olio

I kinda enjoyed my pasta actually. It's different from the pastas you have outside, where the sauce taste like it's can made. Leafy views differs mine though, he claimed that his home made carbonara is better than them =P

The Fried Mozzarella Cheese we ordered

This is how it looks like from the inside

The fried Mozzarella is nice too, crispy on the outside and soft from the inside. The melting cheese flowing from the inside, lovely~ BUT the sauce was really salty, and the bread kinda soaked the sauce coz we left it for quite a while before eating it.

Overall, I think this place is somewhat ok, a very elegant and classy place, but quite pricey. The spaghetti cost RM21.90 usually, and I don't think that it's worth that la. As for the soup, the plate is big but very shallow =D

The Verdict: I enjoyed the food for the Groupon price, but I will not go there if I were to pay the full price =D
