Finger Licking Good

It's 11.40 and here I am at home,... relaxing and nibbling on a Kit Kat bar....

muahaha.

I love holidays.
(but of course, this is only for people in PJ, so sorry my KL friends)

:)

Anyway, onwards to another food review:

Dum dum dum dum.....

I know, I know...
Many other sites out there have done reviews for Delicious Cafe by Ms Read.... but anyway, here's my take on the place....

The Dinner:

Saturday night at Delicious at Bangsar Village was busy as usual, the usually cool and relaxing ambience of plush couches and relaxing blues and whites was replaced by a market-like hustle and bustle of activity.......

(Waiters looked a bit overworked and it was hard to get their attention...*gwumble*)
Even with that, our food came amazingly quickly...

I know that Pat was more than plesantly surprised when the Marsala Lamb Shank he ordered arrived in 5 minutes flat...:

Baa..... Baa Ram Ewe.

The lambshank comes very highly recommended and is not only really delicious, but an absolute steal for only RM24.... (as Pat himself will attest to).

I had my usual, the Duck Confit Spagettini...

Quack quack

This dish is one my all time favourites, with the simple oglio style spagettini beautifully paired with shredded duck meat, sun dried tomatoes and coriander.

Leaving Pat to clean off the large bowl of fries that we had ordered (I swear, that man has a bottomless pit for a stomach!)... I waited impatiently for the main reason I had chosen to dine at this restaurant.....

... the mouthwatering, to die for,.... Classic Chocolate Cake:

Sharing the cake aka. Sharing the calories

Now, don't let the boring, run-of-the-mill name fool you...
(ditto with the really bad photo - eek, really should have taken a photo before splitting the cake)
...for this cake is far above the normal dry chocolate spongey quasi-cakes served at many a cafe/ restaurant in Malaysia...

This cake, moist and rich, smothered with a generous serving of hot chocolate fudge and a scoop of vanilla ice cream, is the closest I have found to heaven on earth...

Be warned though, however tempted you may be, it would be foolish to attempt to finish off the entire serving by yourself (especially after having your main meal) because it is very very filling....

Pat and Chen Hoe (Pattar says: Rawr)

Twas an early night, that Saturday....
Pat raved about how good the food was for the price... but only had one complaint... that the drinks were a little overpriced (which I totally agree with)....
I was not feeling well so with my tummy bulging, I retired to bed very soon after dinner....
*snoooore*

  2. SOUR TASTE IN THE MOUTH21 September, 2007 11:52

    2 nights ago we took our family to have dinner at the Delicious outlet in Bangsar. All good things aside, we would like to highlight that better training should be provided to the staffs in terms of coordination as well as handling customer's request accordingly and diligently.

    As the dinner came to a close, we requested for our 3/4 portion of carrot cake to be packed for take away. We were waiting for 10-15 mins and upon inquiry, no one could provide us with a satisfactory answer to where our cake was. What was most appalling was that the supervisor did not take into consideration that we were getting annoyed with the waiting and having our paid order went missing, and above all, the he could have just replaced the cake for us and stop the CSI investigation at our expense!! He even had the cheek to ask us exactly how big the portion of the cake was so that he would cut it to that, after we sounded our displeasure. It's not so much about pursuing our missing portion of cake on the whole but the good principle and service satisfaction, since they didn't get our instruction correct and misplaced our paid order.

    Totally disgusted with the lack of professionalism and tact displayed by the supervisor! No doubt, a considerable damage to the reputation of this outlet has been done over a piece of carrot cake.

    We are sure discerning food lovers and affluent patrons visit the outlet and this is something that should not have happened. It is embarrassing to the Delicious chain as well as to us who is hosting the dinner.

    No doubt, we will not revisit the outlet anymore and will share our unpleasant experience with our friends and family.

    We did however get our carrot cake replaced, but upon our horror and further disgust, we reached home to find that they have cut a tiny corner (perhaps a quarter to the actual portion) as a show of 'goodwill and rightful replacement'.

    Needless to say, we chucked the cake in the bin.

  3. to sour taste in mouth:
    It's a real pity that you experienced such bad service there!
    :(
    So far, (touch wood) I have never received such bad attitude there but if I did, I would probably not ever go back there again too.
