Delicious @ Bangsar Village 2

The first time I got to know about Delicious was when I visited the spanking new BV2 at the time when most shops had not opened for business yet. My first impression was good about the place... as everyone inside seemed having great time eating the food and chatting happily. I didn't go in at that time as I was in a hurry. And the first time I went to Delicious outlet was at their Mid Valley (opposite Starbucks) branch.. their breakfast had left such a good impression that both Jenn & I went back for lunch whenever possible, not only at their MV but also 1Utama and Dua Annexe outlets.

My chance to dine at their BV2 outlet came when Pat wanted to meet up somewhere in Bangsar, just to catch up on each other's lives. I jumped on the opportunity and suggested Delicious, as I had not gone to Delicious for a long time... hmmm, if not mistaken ever since the arrival of Sher Ryn. It was already packed by the time we reached there around lunch time.

The waiting lounge for those who have to wait for tables...

We started off with French onion soup with melting cheese crostini

Chicken avocado sandwich with pesto on toasted country white - we would prefer it if the size of the chicken meat was smaller instead of the big chunks. Thank God that the Avocado was fresh!

Mushroom mascarpone spaghettini with lemon zest, walnuts and coriander - this dish was basically tasteless even though with its creamy texture. It looked delicious enough when it was served though... I guess don't judge a book by its cover.

Duck confit spaghettini with sun-dried tomato & coriander - Jenn hit the jackpot with this dish. The duck meat was very flavourful and succulent without being too salty.

Carbonara spaghettini with wild mushroom, beef bacon, oregano and cream - I didn't taste this due to the presence of beef but according to Pat, this dish was done just right without being overly creamy.

Leo's verdict - I can't wait to go there again... the last time I read FBB's blog, he wrote that Delicious was going to whip out a few new items in their menu soon! And they looked absolutely DELICIOUS :)

hey, that mushroom mascarpone spaghettini is actually my favorite pasta here! usually it's pretty flavourful. hmmmm, maybe the kitchen staff forgot to add something while rushing out all the dishes for the crowd...

urgh, the last I and Unka went, we were not impressed with the Chicken avocado sandwich. But like u said some were good and some not so yeah, got to see my luck, like Jenn; she did order a yummy looking dish!

The owners of Delicious must be rolling in cash - I've only ever seen that place either packed or very packed! :)
(Mmmm.. the duck confit spaghettini is my fave!)

one of the safest choice for salads, pasta and of course the desserts.
I normally go to the 1U outlet.

I go to Delicious a lot for drinks and cakes. Not the best cakes around, but it's good enough for small chats. ;)

Their pesto chicken pasta is alright too.
