Delicious Revisted - Kuala Lumpur

I think I've made my feelings quite clear about Delicious in previous posts and I couldn't wait for another visit. After a morning of light shoe shopping with Razan, all the way from Dubai to visit me (and to buy shoes) :D, we made our way to rather crowded Delicious for a light-ish lunch - there was a Japanese buffet dinner waiting for us at Kampachi that evening.

The service was dire, as usual. Seriously, after all this time, surely they would have got the service up to an acceptable level? Well, they haven't but I'm not too bothered about it. The food was what I was there for.

Thai Beef Salad - Delicious, Kuala Lumpur

After a good study of the menu, which has expanded a great deal since I was there last, I decided on the Thai Beef Salad. A mix of beansprouts, pea shoots, grated cucumber and grated green papaya (I think) topped with grilled sliced beef, crushed peanuts,sliced red chili and sweet tangy dressing. The beef was over-cooked (not that I was asked how I would have liked it cooked), tough and chewy. The taste? After two bites it got arduously monotonous.

Chicken and Avocado Sandwich - Delicious, Kuala Lumpur

Razan chose the Chicken and Avocado Sandwich, simple enough. A little too simple, perhaps? They were certainly generous with the huge chunks of chicken and avocado mixed with mayonnaise on the open sandwich with a side salad. But other than a generous hand of black pepper, there was no other distinguishable flavour. In a word - boring! Razan is far from the pickiest of eaters and if she found it boring... just imagine!!

Oh dear, what has happened to Delicious? It went from a nice little cafe/restaurant to having outlets mushrooming up everywhere with no quality control over their food. I am terribly disappointed. I'm happy they are doing well, don't get me wrong, but they really have to do something about the food. Alright I probably only ever go there once or twice a year but I certainly won't bother the next I'm home.
