Patrons may know Delicious back in the days when it was a cafe connected to Ms. Read. Since then, countless cafes, restaurants, and delightful brunch spots have taken over KL - but Delicious (now taken over by Envictus, who also has the likes of Texas Chicken and San Francisco Coffee under its belt) has adapted and risen to become a grand-chic family restaurant with an entirely new menu.
With a new facelift, Delicious offers a pleasantly homey environment all while keeping it simple - with high ceilings, a bar, patterned floor tiles, and a little reading nook at the entrance of the cafe. We paid a visit to the grand cafe at 1 Utama - here's what we tried.
Presented as a deconstructed dish, the Sawa-duck-ka Salad (RM 28) is our favourite yet. It brings to mind the yee sang of Chinese New Year – and that was what we did – drizzled the Thai dressing over pomelo flesh, cucumber, tomato Julienne, mint, basil, and tossed it with the star of the dish, duck confit meat. Delicious prides itself on its no-frozen-food or made-from-scratch policy, as group executive chef Timothy Sebastian explained the arduous process of making duck confit can take up to three days.
