DELIcious: Best Salads In Town

Agent Skinny Cikay and I are on a mission. We need to look good by the end of the month. Personally, I don’t know what she’s complaining about. I mean, have you met that woman before? She’ll be skinny just be standing next to any of us. Wait a minute, what am I saying? She IS skinny!

Anyway, we decided to go on a strictly salad+ diet. Haven’t heard of it? Well it’s a new fad (created by us monkeys of course). Loosely based on a low-carb diet plan, the rules are simple: we must pair a handsome amount of salad with any high-protein dishes. Don’t look at us like we are a couple of cows. You really think we’re crazy enough to be just eating rabbit food everyday? We are monkeys after all, and monkeys like a variety. And with this diet plan our possibilities are endless. Think about it.

Salad + Tofu
Salad + Sashimi
Salad + Char Siu
Salad + Tau Yu Bak
Salad + Bacon (minus the cheese and Caesar dressing)
Salad + Siu Yoke
Salad + Roast Turkey
Salad + KFC

Doesn’t it makes you wanna join us on this diet too eh? *wink wink* I dedicate the following comic to her for motivating me to stick to my greens for all day…

The DELIcious chain of restaurants/cafes are known for their quality meals and desserts, but the thing that keeps bringing me back here time and again are their salads. My favourites include the hearty Thai Beef & Mango Salad (which comes with a nice piece of medium-well steak), the nutty Vietnamaese Chicken Salad, the simple Warm Chicken Salad with Balsamic Vinaigrette, the very Wild Mushroom Salad and the insanely delicious Roasted Duck & Pamelo Salad. I can have a different salad a day to last me 2-weeks straight. Who says salad are boring and un-imaginative?


DELIcious cafes can be found at Bangsar Village II, 1 Utama (New Wing), Dua Annexe, and MARC Service Residence.

    try the pork belly salad at dave's pizza pasta vino at 1 utama! when it first arrives, all u can see is the healthy stuff … pear, apples, oranges and green veggies … then when u toss it, u'll realise there are these thick slices of pork belly buried just below the surface… more belly than salad even…

    hmm, i dun mind a diet with only salads, really.
    they can be tasty, esp the Thai versions, with tuna, mango, papaya, beef and whatnots, with a squeeze of tangy lime.

    yummy. although after the 10 or so days of repeated assaults, I doubt you'll even walk near the grass.
