Rondaevoo at Ativo Plaza, Bandar Sri Damansara: Restaurant Review
Meeting up with Rondaevoo, a new cafe at Bandar Sri Damansara’s Ativo Plaza, a promising complex where interesting eateries have sprouted in recent weeks. It’s probably only a 15-minute drive in off-peak traffic from Bandar Utama & Taman Tun Dr Ismail.
Burgers & Pasta
Rondaevoo stresses wholesome, nutritious recipes; its ‘burger’ comes in the form of a house-made prawn patty with chopped avocados, crisp veggies & roasted potatoes at a wallet-pleasing price of RM14.80 before taxes. Rondaevoo’s pastas comprise whole-wheat spaghetti, while its Malaysian-style ‘bee hoon’ vermicelli is built with red rice.
The all-day breakfast (RM17.80) is also well-executed; have your eggs either poached, scrambled, sunny-side-up or as an omelette, partnered with accompaniments like Rondaevoo’s own chicken meatloaf (made with herb-laced thigh & breast meat) …
… plus baked pinto & broad beans that feature a firmer bite & fresher, more natural flavour than canned varieties.
Rondaevoo’s pumpkin soup (RM14.80) is exemplary. Beautifully creamy, with terrific texture from finely cut carrots within. The combination of pumpkin & carrots makes this a delectably sweet beta-carotene powerhouse. Served with wholemeal garlic bread
Rondaevoo serves Puro fair-trade coffee; the soy latte (RM10.80+) is not bad.
All in all, this is a nice venue with twists in its food that we’re thankful for & an enjoyably casual, relaxed vibe.
Ativo Plaza still has shop-lots to fill, but there are sufficient attractions here already, ranging from Mello Yello, a bakery-cafe operated by Hero Market that offers roast beef sandwiches, scones & illy coffee, & Cafe D’Fong, an offshoot of Damansara Utama’s Chinese restaurant D’Fong that serves the likes of freshwater prawn noodles …
… to Brewery Tap, an alfresco bar with a balcony view that extends many miles into Petaling Jaya, & BMS, the organic restaurant chain.
