Had a weekday lunch at Delicious over at the newly opened Scotts Square, located between Grand Hyatt hotel and Tangs.
For those who are not familiar with Delicious, it's a popular chain of high-end cafe from Kuala Lumpur. Something like PS Cafe which sells not only western food, but also traditional Malaysian cuisines.
We skipped the appetizers and went straight to mains. First was the Spicy Crabmeat Linguini (S$15) - tossed with Roasted Cherry Tomatoes & Arugula, sprinkled with Pine Nuts. I didn't really enjoy this, as it was not as flavourful as I hoped it would be. Lot's of crab meat though.
When the Rendang Tok Short Ribs (S$12) was brought to our table, we were quite shocked at the huge serving of the rendang beef ribs. This dish was served with White Rice, Jelatah, Salted Egg, Ulam, Emping & Sambal. The rendang tasted yummy, but as there were huge chunks of rib bones, therefore the meat portion wasn't too much after all. Would recommend 1st time visitors to try this. But the rendang does get too boring after a while.
Wow, their Coconut Cake (S$9) is one of the best I had for a long time. Not only was there freshly grated coconut fillings on the cake, but there were also chunks of sweet coconut flesh fillings within the cake. The menu stated that their coconut are Hawaiian coconuts. Not sure if it means the coconut type or they are really flown in from Hawaii.
On the other hand the Sticky Date Pudding (S$8) with Butterscotch Sauce & Vanilla Ice Cream was quite a letdown.
Prefer the original version from Marmalade Pantry. Some hits and misses here, but overall quite a good place for a meal, and I would come back just for the coconut cake.
