Did you know, immediately after my rather heavy meal at Brotzeit German Bier Bar & Restaurant @ Sunway Pyramid with a bunch of fellow minded foodies and friends, we decided to head to Delicious for more desserts! There goes my diet allocation for the whole month I tell you. Anyway, this is part of Sunway Pyramid's latest 'World Of Cravings' campaign running from 1-30th April 2014, with exclusive promotions on their various food outlets, which we planned to test out.

When you see a restaurant or cafe that is bold enough to name themselves Delicious, you know they mean business. Little did I know that the ominous Delicious restaurant started off as a cosy tearoom at 1 Utama Shopping Centre with just a few items on its menu in 2004. Up until now, it has grown into a chain of 10 full-service cafes in the Klang Valley, Penang, Johor Bahru and Singapore, with a catering service to boot. How's that for an introduction!
|Unique, cozy interior of Delicious Sunway Pyramid, refreshing turquoise blue everywhere|
Just a short note on their interior, which I found to be rather unique. Delicious chose to have this refreshing turquoise blue colour everywhere, accented with quirky birdcages and stylised trees. As can be seen from the picture above, you know you're in a special place when you dine in Delicious. Anyway coming back to the food, check out below for what we had that night. Bear in mind, some of the dishes are part of their new menu, which has just been launched recently.
What we had that evening were part of promotional items which can be found in Sunway Pyramid's Mobile App with exciting deals. Aptly named, the 'Tap, Eat, Save' promotion, remember to download the Sunway Pyramid Mobile App via Google Play or the Apps Store, and you should be able to find everything below, and more!
|#1 Paprika Chicken Salad - RM24.90|
The first appetizer dish to be brought out was Delicious' Paprika Chicken Salad, with a healthy mix of sweet potatos, chicken breast meat, paprika, fresh rosemary, wild rocket, olive oil and warm hazelnut dressing. At first glance, it does look rather menacing with the redness and all, but I can tell you, the paprika and sweet potato inside made all the difference. It was a mixture of sweetness, savoury chicken meat, and slight tanginess that really brought out the taste of this dish.
|#2 Salted Egg & Pumpkin Penne with Asparagus & Spinach - RM22.90|
If you think the first salad dish was a funky one, then you must try their Salted Egg & Pumpkin Penne with Asparagus & Spinach pasta dish! I've always thought mixing salted egg into any dish should be reserved and confined to only chinese cuisine dishes, but here at Delicious, they have successfully incorporated it into their pasta dish. The key word is 'successfully', as I found the mix of salted eggs, cooked penne, curry leaves, asparagus, baby spinach and baked pumpkin really pops. I just could not get enough of the pumpkin and salted egg, a must try dish indeed.
|#3 Chocolate & Peanut Caramel Eclair - RM17|
|#4 Strawberry & Passionfruit Eclair - RM17|
Eclairs, the first mention of this word brought back memories of my childhood where they have these small chocolate sweets with the same name. However, I was quickly brought up to mark on what eclair really is.
An eclair, as was told to me, is an oblong pastry made with choux dough filled with cream and topped with icing. The dough, is typically piped into an oblong shape with a pastry bag and baked until it is crips and hollow inside. Once cooled, the pastry is then filled with their respective flavours.
That night, we had the Chocolate & Peanut Caramel Eclair as well as the Strawberry & Passionfruit Eclair, both which went well with my palate, but I do prefer the chocolate peanut caramel one. Crispy on the outside, when bitten into, it cheerfully breaks apart to fill your mouth with the chocolate and peanut caramel with cream. Pretty interesting sweet dessert if you asked me.
|#5 Strawberry, Hazelnut & Lychee Pavlova with Chocolate Sauce - RM13.90|
It was an awakening of sorts for my taste buds that evening as the next dessert to come out was something new to me. Delicious' Strawberry, Hazelnut & Lychee Pavlova with Chocolate Sauce is under the cake category, but I felt it tasted more like those candies you would give to little kids with a wide smile. It's sweet, and the crispy walls of this dessert literally melts in your mouth.
|#6 Chocolicious Sundae with Strawberries & Pineapple in Glass - RM14.90|
Fancy having your sundae in a glass? That was exactly what we had with our Chocolicious Sundae being served with strawberries and pineapple in a glass. Now I'm always a fan of cold ice creams, and the one here was pretty good, a mix of flavours, some sourishness from the strawberry, and lots of sweetness from the chocolate and pineapple. Good stuff indeed.
