Swedish Food @ Puzzini, Damansara Uptown, Petaling Jaya

How appropriate that I'm blogging about Swedish food today as I just watched Anthony Bourdain's No Reservations episode on Sweden. Unfortunately I followed it up with Nigella Lawson's Feasts and she was doing her chocolate temptations and boy, did I feel like eating something chocolately straight away. Aargh! Not a great idea after midnight to start craving for chocolate.

This little known place which has been overshadowed by Ikea isn't a place I usually go all the time as parking is virtually impossible around Damansara Uptown during weekdays unless you break the rules by double or triple parking. However the MBPJ officers are always vigilant around the area issuing clamps and fines. You do have the option of parking inside the Uptown offices but I tend to avoid their carpark as it's kinda dark since the visitor parking is at the lowest level.

This place serves pizza, pasta and Swedish specialties in a simple cafe environment. Really no frills type of place so don't expect much in terms of decor. I tend to prefer their Swedish meatballs (you can either order beef or chicken -RM13.80) here as they taste very home made. Another plus point is they serve it with mash versus boiled potatoes which I reckon is a better fit with meatballs especially with lots of sauce.

Although I've not tried many other choices as it's always been just meatballs for me, they also serve lots of fish dishes but don't worry, there's no exploding fermented herrings here. Splashie Boy had the conventional Kalops (RM13.80), Swedish beef stew with potatoes, carrots and onions. Not sure what's the Swedish element in it as it tasted just like an ordinary comforting beef stew with a generous portion of tender beef cubes.

If you strike lucky with a parking space, drop by this place for a comforting meal. If not, try them during the weekends when parking is not as hectic. And don't worry, they don't play any ABBA music which you will feel like axing just like what Anthony Bourdain did in No Reservations.

cookies cream - I resize my pixs to what it can fit in the blog. You'll just have to experiment on what fits in yr blog before you post the final one.

fatboybakes - envious of yr astro max. Bourdain is quite fun, the Swedish episode was classic with him hating Abba. The meatballs are yummy, much better than the I place.

jackson - haven't tried the chicken one though so don't know if good but yeah, one of those places who gives you a choice.

if you're ever there again, you should try the chocolade banana pizza.

it's an odd dish but one of my favourites.

was lucky to stay within this area previously and they did free delivery. didn't have to worry about the parking nightmare.

was a very happy camper. =)

Please don't go to this place! The boss is utterly rude. I have ordered one dessert and clearly asked whether i was eligible for the special promo price and the waitress said " YES" and when the bill came they charged me full price. I clearly queried on this and the boss himself rudely told me off and said "you should have read the brochure!". I wouldn't have ordered if the waitress did not misinformed me. This clearly tells me that the boss himself condones to his staff using dirty tactics to manipulate the customers. It may only be RM5 difference but it is the principle that counts. I have been a regular of this place since it was first opened in Seapark and rest assured that i wont be a regular anymore and neither would any of my family or friends.
