When I first heard of the name Huckleberry I thought of Huckleberry Finn, the character created by Mark Twain for the book Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. Well the restaurant isn’t a hut located in the woods but it’s a corner shoplot clad in white, situated at Damansara Heights.
Once you’re in the restaurant, that’s when you notice how the settings do resemble that of a hut, a setup that’s very homely and comfortable.
Dining tables are available in various sizes, both indoors and outdoors. Those dining alone could opt for the counter instead. Interestingly, the restaurant does not have any waiter to take your orders, you place your order at the counter and pay immediately and wait for the food to arrive.
According to the person in charge that day, Huckleberry’s specialty are their pastries and pasta.
Well, we ended up ordering what we liked – the place is packed on weekends and we had to line-up amidst the haze despite our visit being after lunch hour. Fortunately the wait wasn’t long, we had about 5 minutes of fresh light haze before we were ushered to our seat.
Our lunch started with Chicken Bahn Mi (RM 19.90) – the delicious Vietnamese style sandwich comes in a set of 2 with good amount of chicken and vegetable, this meal is delicious and it’s just nice for a person or 2, depending on your eating capacity.
Next on our list was the Old Fashion Burger (RM 19.90) – this one’s a total disappointment. The burger doesn’t have any soul, it’s just bread, meat and vegetable pieced together and heck it actually made McD’s offerings look great in comparison!
We ordered Smoked Duck Bacon (RM 10) and my goodness, this one’s really delicious. Sinfully oily it is but yeah, it was literally delicious down to the last drip as I swiped my croissant across the platter, savoring the duck oil (is that what you call it?) with every bite.
I wanted to order Beef & Mushroom pie but it wasn’t available that day so I went for Beef Lasanga (RM 26.90) – it was delicious as what a lasagna ought to be but I think the price is pretty steep considering the portion served.
As for our dessert, we ordered croissant (RM 4.90) and a cut of Macadamia Cheese Cake (RM 6.90) – both were delicious, albeit the croissant seems rather pricey.
The food here is good but prices are on the high side, definitely worth a visit if you’re into pastries, pasta, pies and whatever puffy stuff.
According to the people at the restaurant, the place is less packed on weekdays so take that into considering should you intend to pay them a visit.
