Lazy? Busy? No time? Well, all of these are the reason that we constantly tell ourselves that we do not have time to cook a great meal. Not all of us are in that category and I believe most of us are in it. Where to find great home cook food without the cooking. We are left only with 2 choices. Either “tabao” from your favourite place or order a delivery. dahmakan had been in the market for quite a while and been consistently delivering pretty good food to many of us in the office or at home. Even my company order 100 packs from them for our monthly Birthday celebration.
dahmakan is a food portal that offers home cook food from their chef recipe with ingredients source daily from the market. If you log into their website few days once, you might see there are some seasonal item that could be introduce for a period of time or only available on weekend.
Listen and view many of my friends ordering this, it seems would be a pretty good value till I try it again last weekend as I was too busy to go out with house spring cleaning, where Chinese New Year 2020 is just around the corner.
It was most of the time that my colleague that is ordering it and this is my first time ordering through their app and the ordering experience were pretty seemless. Clean layout, Easy and direct to the point. Check out their menu as it takes RM 12 to delivery to you.
It is easy to make decision on which dish to hit on. Just look at their ratings. I know that Salted Egg Butter Chicken is their signature or best seller in dahmakan. I have tried it once and it is pretty good for a food delivery.
This round decided to try something else.
It would be:
- Mac & Cheese with Chicken Meatballs @ RM 14.90
- Nasi Lemak Ayam Berempah with Tealive Classic Roasted Milk Tea with Grass Jelly @ RM 16.90
- Roasted Chicken Breast with Spinach Barley Risotto, Mushroom
- Salted Egg Chicken @ RM 14.90
- Baked Japanese Curry
Nasi Lemak Ayam Berempah with Tealive Classic Roasted Milk Tea with Grass Jelly @ RM 16.90
To my suprise, all three of the food were pretty good. Nasi Lemak were pretty good as the rice is fragrant and the ayam berempah is filled with flavours. Not the one that pack with a punch but decent enough for a quick crave.
I find that this is pretty good in value Roasted Chicken Breast with Spinach Barley Risotto, Mushroom turns out to be better than I expected. The Risotto were cook spot on. Risotto is not too soft yet too hard. The soup stock that cook along is not too salty yet blends quite well with the roasted chicken breast. Chicken Dip with the sauce give a lift that it needed.
My sister is a fan of anything with cheese. She ordered Mac & Cheese with Chicken Meatballs @ RM 14.90.
Macaroni cook just right, moist and springy. Bolognise sauce is thick enough to pairs with the mac n cheese. Meatball is not too dense yet the amount given is just right.
Their new in the menu is Baked Japanese Curry is pretty good. I think among the list that I have ordered, Baked Japanese Curry is my favourite. The curry is mild fragrant, and the amount of ingredient like chicken is pretty generous. Amount of cheese topped on top is also not too heavy. Not your daily consumption but best to have it once a while.
Salted Egg Butter is their all time best seller @ RM 14.90. Those of you might thought that it will be too creamy or to punch with flavours. However it is done right. Chicken is soft and juicy and the gravy is not too salty, creamy to fits the meal and fragrant enough with the salted egg.
Overall, is that dahmakan delivers better food than what I expected.
