Chanced across this place when we were googling for a nice place to enjoy a quiet family Christmas dinner. Located in Tanjong Bungah, the restaurant sits in the middle of a row of shops and restaurants nestled on the fringe of a quiet residential area. We were struck by the quaintness and cosy environment of the place. The 1st floor houses a bar with a pool table and a couple of eating tables so the main dining area is on the ground floor.
As the name suggest, the restaurant specializes mainly in Bulgarian fare and I must say the food is delicious. We started off with a an appetizer, Orley Wraps @ RM 18 (grilled skewered bacon wrapped around cheese). I found the bacon a little too fat and not cooked enough for my liking and the portion was rather tiny. Mom ordered the Chicken Stroganoff with Butter Rice @ RM 28 (by mistake, hahaha) but it turned out to be a delicious mistake. The dish arrived in quite a sizeable portion of tender chicken strips soaked in a nice creamy herb infused sauce accompanied by fragrant buttered rice. Dad went with the Barbequed Chicken @ RM 18 which was rich in flavour too although the chicken was less tender than the Stroganoff. Personally I preferred the Chicken Stroganoff. I shared a delicious Chicken and Mushroom Pizza @ RM17 with our 4 year old and the portion was very decent for that price. The crust was just nice, neither too thick nor too thin, and it was layered with a rather generous layer of gooey cheese that actually stretches as you bite into it. They weren't stingy with the toppings too. Certainly beats Domino or Pizza Hut anytime. Hubby dug into a Bulgarian Sausage Platter featuring a classic mixed grill of pork and beef cooked in different variations. He loved it.
You will note food measurements (g) on the menu which allows ravenous foodies to order larger portions which will be priced accordingly. I find the standard portions filling enough for most of us. While the service is pretty good, it is a little slow if you’re famished. They forgot to prepare Hubby’s Platter but it arrived promptly after a reminder accompanied by a personal apology from the European boss / manager.
If you're looking for a nice, quiet, cosy enjoyable moment with good food and good fellowship, Vintage is ideal. Its best to make reservations as the seating capacity is a little limited. Prices are naturally on the higher side but the food is worth savoring and the portions good enough. The cosy and warm ambience complement the food further so for us, it’s worth future visits back to try the rest of the menu on special occasions. Note: This restaurant isn't halal.
