Great Food at Bistro Valhalla Jul 17, 2011
There are quite number of restaurant in Boracay that serves pasta like Don Vito but sill my 1st choice when I crave for pasta is the Valhalla Restaurant located at the D’Mall in Station. You might find it weird that the chef and owner is Danish (as the name implies) yet they serve pasta and stakes and burgers.
We end up here as my friend craves for pasta during the trip. We hop from one restaurant to another, checking the menu, finding a specific dish that will satisfy his cravings. Here, while we look at the menu, the owner who was watching nearby approaches us as we argue a bit on the food. He asked for some details of the food we are looking since it is not on the menu of every place we went. He offered us to cook the food so he called the chef for us to give specification. Lucky, the chef agreed to cook it.
Atmosphere. The place is at the side of the D-Mall,a away from places with loud music. It is small yet cozy with all cute designs on the wall. Most things are made of wood except for the tables set outside the restaurant. We opted to sit almost outside since most tables inside are occupied and for fresh air in the outer area.
The Menu. They offer servings in two types: a. single - lunch or b. group - dinner. There are many choices for pasta lovers. And they also serve steak and non-pasta meals. Upon checking the menu, it is quite pricey for those on budget but less compared to other European restaurant here. But as I observed food served on our table as well as in other tables, the serving is big even for lunch (single serving) order.
Food. My friend Peter wanted to have pasta in white sauce and shrimps on which the Chef cooked by request. The food smells good once it is served. Pasta is cooked right. The sauce is neither that thick nor thin yet still clings on the pasta. Also there is a milky after taste (yummy). Shrimp? Lots of it that range from small to medium thus we end with 2-3 each. The plus, they gave free dessert (carrot cake during our stay) after meals.
Staff. They staff are friendly from the Chef, manager and servers. The chef keeps on coming back on the table to check if we are satisfied with his cooked meal. The owner often approach guests for small chat and make sure they like the food.
Overall, it’s a good place to dine aside from the grilled food and buffet usually offered. And it is worth every penny spent here. For sure I’ll drop by here on my next trip in Boracay.
