Recently, I dined with Fatboybakes at Delicious which has now relocated to Bangsar Village II. It's definitely a bigger space with a special smoking room on the side. Business was booming as the place was packed to the brim with tai tais and office workers during lunch time. Fatboybakes was telling me he read an article at the recent the Edge that Delicious is now moving up in the world as Eastern and Oriental has bought a stake in the company. There's big plans for expansion - the old Bangsar Village outlet will be turned into a sandwich bar and a fine dining outlet is in the works. Whatever it is, they really have a gold mine here as everyone seems to be dining here.
Foodwise, I must admit the menu ain't too exciting as it feels like a rehash of my food magazines or somewhere else I have dined at before. I even spied the similar crab linguine I had in Marmalade Pantry, Singapore. Fatboybakes had the Wagyu Beef and Mushroom Pie (RM21.90++) while I had the Spicy Crab Linguine (RM21.90++) as I wanted to check the similarities between the two places. The pie was pretty good. I stole a small piece to sample and it was tender and the crust was flaky. Takes a while to reheat (about twenty minutes) so you will need to wait some time. I suspect most of these items are made in a central kitchen (I read a recent advertisement mentioning Sungai Besi) and sent to their outlets where it's reheated as and when an order is placed. My pasta was pretty good - definitely a lighter version compared to Marmalade Pantry. Not as much crab meat but the taste was quite good. It's not very spicy though despite spying a few chopped red chilies in the sauce.
For dessert, we both shared a Banana Pudding (RM9.90++) which was served with a ramekin of butterscotch sauce and a scoop of vanilla ice cream. The banana pudding can be quite tasteless without the sauce and ice cream so ladle lots on top. It kinda felt like a local cekodok minus the greasy oil especially with the bits of banana inside the pudding.
It was a pretty satisfying lunch and I like their new outlet as it felt nice and big. Only thing is if you sit inside (nearer to the entrance) it feels kinda dark and gloomy. We chose to sit next to the smoking room hence the sun light was streaming in from the open windows. The feel of this outlet is the same as the other places with their signature white bird cages and touches of turquoise, dark blue and pine accents.
