This festive season, the chefs at Delicious are cooking up some pretty appetising stuff at their cafes. Amidst the Christmas trees and twinkling lights, on the menu are several traditional festive items.
On top of the list is of course the Roasted Turkey Breast & Stuffed Leg served with cranberries, roasted vegetables in chilli and herbs. I like how both breast and stuffed leg of turkey are served together – the best of both worlds.
You can order the whole Turkey Crown as a takeaway too. The Roasted Turkey Crown comes with stuffed legs mixed with sage, chestnuts and onions together with cranberry sauce and turkey jus, all for RM445 (5-6kg).
Things are kept pretty simple and traditional at Delicious. CEO Steve Allen totally believes that the freshest ingredients cooked well are their best bets. Take the Grilled Beef Tenderloin, for example. Fuss-free and grilled well, the beef turned out tender and tasty and all it needed were just wholesome sides like roasted vegetables, creamed mushrooms with a few stalks of asparagus to make it a satisfying dish.
The same applied to the Salmon Gravadlax – a healthy rendition of salmon with Lemon & Horseradish Salad sprinkled with some crunchy walnuts.
The very British Mincemeat Crumble Pie was served as a dessert with Vanilla Ice Cream. There’s no meat in this pie – what a misnomer, so that’s why it’s served as a dessert. The buttery crumbly pastry encasing a thick filling of dried fruits and spices would complete a festive meal here.
“A Delicious Christmas” is now ongoing until 31 December 2015.
If you are dining at Delicious any time now, check out some of the latest additions to their menu. Their new menu now features 16 new and improved dishes that are synonymous with the Delicious brand. Fresh from a food research trip in UK and Spain, CEO Steve Allen was inspired to come up with refreshed versions of their popular dishes, incorporating more vegetables and herbs for a healthier direction.
New dishes like Pumpkin Risotto Balls were a refreshing take – the mushroom and rosemary risotto balls were satisfying, especially when dipped in the zesty pesto mayonnaise.
Then there’s the crowd favourite of Duck Arrabiata Linguine which was cooked in a Spanish-style spicy tomato sauce dotted with black olives, capers and parsley.
Healthy and fulfilling dishes do well in Delicious. Their Chicken, Avocado & Pine Nuts Wrap with cherry tomatoes, parmesan and cucumber was really tasty.
The introduction of more local dishes in the menu is another step forward and gives more variety to the selections. Try the amazingly light Roasted Pumpkin, Coconut & Beef Serunding Salad drizzled with a spicy lime dressing – it’s sure to perk you up.
I enjoyed the Crunchy Chicken Wings with a sesame and seaweed crust dipped in mustard mayonnaise. You can’t go wrong with crunchy tasty chicken wings, really. They were addictive, to say the least.
For the sweet-toothed, the new desserts include the amazingly fragrant Chocolate, Coconut & Pecan Cake and the Pineapple, Watermelon, Passionfruit & Lychee Sundae. The cake was deliciously moist but just a tad too sweet – something which I trust Steve will fix.
Chocolate, Coconut & Pecan Cake
And that tall-glass sundae, with all my favourite fruits in one glass, it’s rather irresistible.
Pineapple, Watermelon, Passionfruit & Lychee Sundae
And I never leave a Delicious Cafe without having my all-time favourite cake – their dreamy Coconut Cake. It’s not new – it’s been there for ages because apparently it’s a bestseller 🙂
Quench your thirst with Apple & Mint Lemonade (my favourite) and Rose Lychee Frostie
