There is something about food at Delicious. It is not particularly outstanding or the most creative in the world but like it or not they have the ability to attract long queues, whether it is a weekday or weekend especially during meal times.
I suppose half the people or more who comes into Delicious, go in without a preconception that they will be served mind blowing food. Instead, as i have mentioned before, some places can simply just bloom because of the concept and the branding. Especially in an upmarket place in Bangsar, Delicious have positioned it to be the perfect place where the tai tai and Datins or the younger working crowd can have a meal or chill out.
Despite being one who don't like to "fall in the trap" to go to places that focuses on things beside their food, one of my earliest catch up session before i am to leave the town for good was at Delicious.
That being said, the food isn't all that bad but it isn't all that expensive either. The added plus point is the huge variety of dishes too that are all prepared with a certain quality.
You can have spaghetti aglio olio. A simple recipe that one would have to try very hard to get it wrong, boil pasta, toss with olive oil, garlic and chilli flakes.
You could also have the recent US of A promotions where they have attempted to bring to shores some classic american dishes like the BBQ ribs. I must say that they did this really well, full of smokey BBQ flavour served with cooling coleslaw and fries.
Looking for a snack to share? Try the fried mushrooms, i must say there were absolutely gorgeous, the thing you should order if you want something fried.
From pasta to ribs, they also do a very decent Hainanese chicken chop. A huge portion of chicken chop battered with flour and egg served with a tomato based sauce. This is again the item to call for if you want something fried or if you want a wholesome dish.
They do serve some local flavours too as you see an interpretation of their fish head noodles minus the fish head with the replacement of fish fillet. Looks too healthy too me but Niki didn't seem to have too much problems finishing up everything.
Our dear adik Hanis needs her rice so with that she ordered a steamed chicken which came in a pool of black sauce. I don't know what she thought about it but i rather dig into my chicken chop by the picture.
So if you want a place to hang out in Bangsar or Dua Annexe or Marcs Residence or Mid Valley or 1 Utama, you know you have Delicious to trust for some decent grub.
Located at the above shopping complexes and condominiums.
Verdict: 3.5 stars out of 5 stars. Nothing too fancy but not too shabby either.
Catching up with the Chomel gang (labelled Chomel because it was apparently the most overused phrase throughout the trip) that went with me to Jakarta was certainly nothing short of fun as we talked about highlights of the trip over and over. One just need to imagine lots of laughter till cheeks were aching. I am glad to say that we have all kept in touch, one way or the other after the trip and i regard the whole crew as my good friends. It is a pity we couldn't have hanged out a bit longer in good old Malaysia before i go off to Melbourne.
Stay tune for the rest of the week, as i run through my farewell and catch up sessions and reminisce how i got to know each separate group and individual. Time to emo.
