Our dinner review started off with a Western Starter which is a Creamy Sauteed Chicken Breast (RM29.00). The chicken that is used in the restaurant is of the Free Range Chicken species. Free Range Chicken will have a firmer texture and better taste too. The chicken is cooked with a creamy garlic and paprika sauce giving a hint of spicy taste to this creamy chicken dish. Served with purple cabbage, cherry tomatoes with a light sprinkle of balsamic vinegar.
The second starter/appetizer is the Bruschetta which is served with Diced Tomatoes, Garlic and Olive Oil on a Garden Farm Bread (RM17.00). A nice little crunchy start to your meal.
For Soup, we had the Zuppa Di Pesce Misto (RM18.00) which is a Mixed Seafood in Prawn Bisque. We like the strong brothy flavour of the bisque as it was nicely matched with the seafood which consists of prawns, squid, and clams. Will be perfect with a piece of toast or butter bun to go with the soup.
Next on, from the Pasta section, we were served with the Spaghetti Aglio E Olio (RM22.00). The pasta was cooked with toasted garlic, fresh chillies with a dash of extra virgin oil and Prawns. The dish would have been even better had the Chef uses a bigger size prawns for this dish.
For the Mains, we had the Scaloppini Di Pollo Al Funghi (RM40.00) which in essence is a Pan Fried Chicken Breast With Creamy Mushroom Sauce. The chicken breast has a firm meaty texture and was well paired with the brown mushroom sauce. Served with mashed potatoes and boiled cauliflower, carrots and broccoli as the sides.
The last course before dessert is a Pizza which is Tonno E Cipolle (RM22.00) – a tuna based thin crust pizza that is very crispy and crunchy, topped with cherry tomatoes, mozzarella cheese, and onions. An extra topping of cheese would have taken this to a higher level.
For dessert, we had the Tiramisu Modestos (RM22.00) which has a layer of Mascarpone, sponge cake and topped with sprinkles of Espresso Coffee. Served on the sides are white fresh cream with a dollop of chocolate sauce.
Overall, Hugos By Modestos Damansara Perdana offers diners a great choice of western cuisine for you to choose from and is a nice place for you to dine in a very relaxed setting.
