Delicious Cafe, Bangsar Shopping Village

So much have been said and written about this chain of cafe. Mostly good things, mind you. When I first heard of Ms Read, it was just a boutique catering to bigger framed beauties. Later, I heard it has started a chain of cafes call Delicious. Wow. Talk about diversification or should the word 'complementary businesses' more appropriate? Ok, ok. Not all sweet tooth-lings are big size nor an occasional cake and such will increase the dress size significantly but then again ... =P

Pictures and descriptions ranging from cakes, salads to main courses from so many bloggers had me hankering for a visit (which now had become visits). So, here's my simple take. For those who are already fans of this place, do skip as you may find it boring due to its popularity in other blogs. For those unfamiliar (1st time visit to a food blog, huh?), hope my pictures will stir your interest though not very well taken.

It was after dinner, we were full but wanted to continue our chit-chat session (backstabbing ritual, of course). It was drizzling so 'Mamaks' (Al-fresco Muslim tea stalls set-up along roadside) were out. So, Delicious we went since only 1 of us has been there and he had been raving about it since. He even promised to pay if the cakes disappoint!

There were 4 of us sitting outside along its dim canopied corridor. Comfortable atmosphere but tough to take pictures with my amateurish camera and skill. Maybe it was late, maybe it was the lighting, maybe the soft noise of the drizzle or maybe it was just us but we had a tough time catching the waiters' attention after receiving the menus to settling the bill.

Our choices:-

Chocolate Pavlova. 1 word :- s-i-n-f-u-l

Carrot Cake. Err.. somehow it did not have the 'knock-out' taste we expected. Maybe sky-high expectations due to too much 'promotions' by all who tried before?
Cannot Recall Cake. Sorry but I can just remember it's the only one with Strawberries to its name.
Banana pudding with a dollop of 'oh no, I forgot what flavour it was' ice-cream. My only memory is that I was the only one scooping the ice-cream as none of them liked itNot a good review, huh. I guess I should have taken the effort to jot down the name of the items or at least take pictures of the menu for reference. *Note to self. Buck up! Buck up!*

Drinks were quite standard. I had a Hot Mocha which was thick and nice. I guess the others who had Earl Grey Tea, Iced Mocha and Cappucino respectively were happy with theirs as there were no grumbles.
Overall, the cakes were good but we failed to do them justice as we were too full yet greedy. The Banana Pudding and Carrot Cake were left half eaten. =(

Our bill (which we split as our satisfied looks gave us away) with the address:-

hey, i dunno why i dun really liek the food from delicious. I tried all version of their cake but sadly, none of them is good. May b i had tried the best cake ever - by FBB. I found the pricing by Delicious was a bit sky high and the food was just too normal for me...... just my personal opinion.

Tummythoz said...

jackson, best cake ever by FBB? Fatboy Bakes, right? I'll skip over to his site & check them out pronto!

fatboybakes said...

Hi tummythoz, this is my first visit to your blog and already my eyes went wild over the super yummy looking cakes. I brought my brother-in-law there and i ordered a choc pavlova. He doesn't take sweet stuffs and he took a bite and the next thing we know, he wallop the whole thing and asked for second helping!

Rasa Malaysia said...

Sure look delicious, but I think the bill was also deliciously expensive!!! :P

Very nice shots by the way...:)

Oh, I haven't posted the lunch I had from this place (add to the many others posts out there, ha ha). The banoffee pie is not too bad here.

Tummythoz said...

TQ for the kind compliment.
