Usually I am not too keen on eating at chain restaurants and even if I do, I would proceed with caution. Well, except for fast food. And since I basically eat anything, I never had a problem eating out anywhere. But if you are planning a meal for a group of people of different races and religions it could be a real headache. That’s when these chain restaurants come into place. Most of the time they have menu for vegetarians, take reservations, accept credit cards and perhaps more importantly – halal.
For convenience’s sake, Delicious at Mid Valley was selected for a meal function recently. My eyes almost popped out looking at the menu because everything is so expensive! Honestly, I am not too excited about Delicious so I am going to keep this one short and say that all the food we had was just average at best, unless stated otherwise.
Pan Seared Cod served with Sauteed Prawns on Ratatouille & Fried Potatoes @ RM48.90 – the best thing about this is the prawns, fresh with a crunchy bite. The cod however, had the fishiest taste to ever cross my tongue.
Classic Beef Lasagne @ RM19.90.
Wild Mushroom Soup with Garlic Bread @ RM13.90 – the price is just bonkers for something so ordinary.
Homemade Pesto Spaghettini (RM19.90) + Chargrilled Chicken (RM6.90)
Carbonara Spaghetti with Wild Mushrooms, Beef Bacon, Oregano & Cream @ RM23.90 – this is delicious.
Grilled Chicken Burger with Turkey Bacon, Ranch dressing & Fries @ RM22.90.
English Fish & Chips with Homemade Tartare Sauce & Garden Greens @ RM29.90 – easily more than double the price of a normal fish & chips but at least it was good.
Thai Boxing Chicken Drummets @ RM10.90 – this is actually an appetizer.
Chocolate Brownie with Chocolate Sauce & Vanilla Ice Cream @ RM11.90 – this may be quite good but it got nothing on TGI Friday’s Mocha Mud Pie.
Verdict? Dining at Delicious is not going to be kind on your wallet, and for the price they are charging you are not getting the best bang for your buck too. So I just don’t see the point of eating here. But then again that’s coming from an average salaryman like me.
