Delicious by Ms. Read @ Sunway Pyramid (EXTENDED)

We were first exposed to this restaurant at One Utama. At that time as we could recall, it was called "Ms Read's Cafe". It was not that easy to forget as it was located right beside of Ms Read's fashion boutique, but due to unknown reasons it is now named as "Delicious" (can't say that we disagree with the decision XD but it might be because the cafe is a collaboration with her son and he'd like to create his own distinctive brand)

Our first impression was, it had comfy seating, felt homely, serves good desserts and was packed with customers during the weekend. As delicious as the name suggests, this restaurant displays a lot of its tasty desserts (whichever is still available) for your eyes to feast upon, even before you are escorted to your seat. Be sure to pick the one you fancy most and order them right away to avoid others from snatching them away haha



One of many new Delicious branches which spread fast and vast throughout KL/Klang in 2011. Operational hours: 10am - 10pm daily.

Delicious is also known for its beautiful interior design. You just can't help but to feel relaxed by the ambiance created from all the unique decorations.
 Different branches seem to use its different surroundings to their advantage. So far we are impressed with the decorations we saw at Mid Valley branch and the newly opened Penang branch which faces the ocean (Straits Quay) looks to be quite promising too ;)


Watermelon and lychee blast. RM9.90.

Four cheese macaroni. RM21.90. Consisting of mozzarella, guyere, parmesan and white chedar cheese. Not exactly the portion size we were expecting for the price and Mr Foodpacker was clearly shocked when he saw this being put on his table as he gave the "Is this enough? =O" expression on his face haha That was the case in a glance but once he has tasted it.. it was a completely different story! You can taste all the 4 different types of cheese in it clearly, each of its taste are well defined and it works so well for an exceptionally cheesy dish! The top part was crispy as well adding a little texture to the creamy, moist and cheesy center filling. The salad was not just for show too. It was very fresh and crispy!



Aglio olio spaghettini. RM15.90. Add shitake mushroom & sundried tomato +RM7.90. Add beef bacon +RM7.90. Add seafood +RM8.90. In this picture is with added beef bacon, thus the price is RM23.80. Despite the small portion (again) this dish was spectacular! The perfect mixture of oil and herb with a VERY generous of added beef bacon. This dish instantly turned Mrs Foodpacker into a any-pasta aglio olio fan.
Carbonara spaghettini. RM24.90. Contains oyster mushroom, beef bacon, oregano and cream. We got to admit, this is the highlight and the come-back-for dish of the shop! It is very creamy and very cheese. If you noticed, those are chunks of sliced cheese on top of the pasta! Generously spread together with a balanced amount of bacon, you won't find yourself limiting its amount of intake as it is enough to last till the last strand of spaghetti! The presentation is good as well, it is not simply thrown on the plate, instead it is rolled into the center part of the plate and results in all of the small spaghetti stands to united as one. That is how a classic plate of paste should be served and THAT is what we call culinary art. One of the best carbonara pasta we've ever tasted ;)

Nasi kerabu with ayam percik. RM23.90. Served with ulam, salted egg and keropok (there is also kerabu hidden below the keropok) This is one meal we didn't expect to find in the menu. A shop simply can't have a too diversified menu and be good at all of them. Thus the reason why this nasi kerabu was a let down. First off, the rice is not in blue and eventhough the chicken was big, it did not taste like how a real authentic ayam percik should taste like. Still, it is a filling dish for big eaters.

Sambal udang tumis. RM29.90. With achar jelatah, steamed rice and beef serunding. The prawn size is HUGE if you consider the ones you can normally find in KL. It is not too spicy and has a strong nice sambal taste. Prawn shells are peeled off so there is no hassle in eating. The prawns are really strong and pack a punch!

Masala lambshank. RM30.90. Served with nasi pilaf, cucumber raita and papadom.

Thai style steamed seabass. RM22.90. A simple dish with rice and asian greens.

Berrilicious chocolate pavlova. RM13.90. We are big fans of the Pavlova cake from Serai @ Empire, so when it comes to this one we had our expectations pretty much parred. Unlike the one from Serai that has a soft texture inside and hard texture outside, this pavlova is hard all around so we kind of prefer Serai's better. It could be due to its limited small size, but nonetheless it is still a good pavlova dessert compared to other shops!
Chocolate brownie. RM12.90.  Flooded with chocolate sauce and melted with vanilla ice cream. Very sweet. Possibly the best ice cream brownie one could find. It is as delightful to the mouth as it is a delight to the eyes. You can start drawing patterns once the chocolate sauce and vanilla ice cream are mixed together haha If you are not a fan of nuts, stay away as there is A LOT of them in this one =P

Marmalade bread and butter pudding with custard sauce. RM11.90.

Flourless orange cake with vanilla ice cream. RM11.90. This was just and okay dessert. You ought to try something different.

Dishing it out: We believe that the real reason as to how Delicious is able to attract its costumer is by serving okay food with good desserts in an excellent environment. (kinda sums it up in 1 sentence haha) Perfect usage of its surrounding resources to create a one of a kind ambiance where people can meet up with ease and enjoy each others company for celebrations or gatherings or simply to eat their FANTASTIC pasta.. IMHO the carbonara n aglio olio spaghettini are enough to make you come back as a regular customer =)
