Their Signature Alcoholic Tiramisu. Freshly done from the kitchen. It is soft, ,moist and punch with flavour. Generous amount of cocoa powder too.

Lime Tuak is another drink which is recommended. Super refreshing and punch you with a note of sourness to my linking. Tuak after taste flavour just flows in after that. A right balance.

Food can sometimes be very different if we are adventurous enough yet at times it can be a dissapointment. Recent discovery on something new in Bukit Damansara is this outlet called Maliqa Mediterranean Cuisine that serve HALAL Mediterranean food, and I must say its actually a hidden gem in the area. Open its door not too long ago already have build up well with many return customer with its reasonable pricing and food quality.

 Also further understand that Maliqa in term of Arabic origin used in Persia it means a title of Queen Consort.

From the meaning Queen and the interior designer which is one of the owner himself that design the whole place to assemble the look and feel of Persian.

Something new to me is this Pirincli Yoghurt & Corbasi. It looks healthy for morning breakfast as I was on diet for that week and surely this would be a great soup for me. Something simple and the taste is a bit salty papperish end.

Maliqa House Steak werent bad is just that on that night I find it abit over cook for the steak. Gravy is good which is light that did not overpower the taste of the steak. Its one of their signature dish for Maliqa.

fresca (22)

After some alcohol, we were serve with hot bowl of some, taste is pretty unique that is quite mild in taste yet sourish at the end. Sopa de Fideo  @ RM15 – A simple chicken soup with angel hair noodles – Recommended!

fresca (14)

Guacamole with chips @ RM20. Start off with a simple starter that just brighten our day up. It look simple as we got it from the supermarket shelf but te main ingredient is The mashed up avocado is intensely creamy and thick that make it kick!

fresca (15)

Nachos Grande @ RM27 – Tortilla chips topped with re-fried beans, Monterrey Jack cheese, ground beef, Jalapeno Chiles, guacamole and sour cream. Comes on a large plate for sharing.

fresca (16)

I just love the taste of it and cant stop munching and this is the first time I finish all the Jalapeno as usually it put it away

fresca (17)

Another unique starter that I come across is this Jalapeno Poppers @ RM16

fresca (18)

YAp Correct, it is being deep friend along with the outer layer is Jalapenos and such spicy sourish taste pair perfectly with its sweet and fragrant Mango chipotle salsa just a match in heaven.

fresca (19)

Yap, not only that, see how cheezy it is. . 😀

fresca (21)

Camarones al Ajilo  @ RM24 – Tiger prawns sauteed with fragrant Guajillo Chiles and garlic. Served with two pieces of flour tortillas.

The prawn is juicy and sucullnet as it was just so instant that the dish was put onto the table and without being picture the first prawn was rape by Eunice. 😀

Temptation is just there with aroma and texture of it. Wrap It with pita bread and trying to dig a bit of the sauce to spread on the bread is just a perfect one.

fresca (23)

Costilla Asada @ RM43 – Succulent short ribs in a homemade barbecue sauce, slow braised for 3 hours for an off-the-bone tenderness. Served with creamy mash potatoes and sauteed vegetables.

I have never tried ribs in Mexican style as by presentation itself it had won our heart over. Extra marks for It as it smells so good that I have to swallow my saliva. Cutting of it was easy as it was so soft just by using fork able to cut it thru. Well marinated till the whole meat is flavourful and grill to perfection that did not make the edge burn yet its juicy – highly recommended!

fresca (24)

To those who prefer something light in taste then Pescado Mojo de Ajo  is one of the dish that you can hunt for. Fish lightly pan-fried in a fragrant butter sauce, topped with chunk pieces of roasted garlic. Served with Mexican white rice and mixed salad. RM42

Apple Enchiladas – Baked flour tortillas filled with apples, served with homemade nougat ice cream.

fresca (28)

This is one of the best Mini Churros that I have come across so far that deep fried to perfection love that the Mexican donuts rolled in sugar and cinnamon, served with chocolate sauce. @ RM13 REcommended!

There are many places to be and hang out to have good meals with friends or casual business meetings, and if you are looking for a place that provide sensual and cozy ambiance, one of the place that I discover is Delucca The Italian Restaurant, one of a restaurant that offers authentic Italian Cuisine.

delucca (1)

delucca (2)

A place where its nicely set up that is perfect for love birds to celebrate special occasion in a section I find it very nice with uncomplete bricks decor and lights just shine towards that table . ..

delucca (3)

delucca (4)

Very much cozy area for dining which give me the kind of more casual, as the place lit with low lighting bulbs . . . .

delucca (5)

and I quite like the bar counter which is located directly in the middle of the restaurant which kinda seperate the area of more casual dining and proper dining area. . .

delucca (6)

if you do have private meetings or functions they do have this vip area for you .. .

delucca (7)

delucca (8)

Menu in the restaurant is quite simple with just one simple page that represent the whole list of it. Browsing through the list of it, the range of it is quite impressive as there are a few dishes that I am aiming for especially with duck.Well, dinner for tonight already arrange by my friend so we will just sit there and enjoy the meal . . .

delucca (9)

Frangelico Lemon @ RM18 is Frangelico added with lemon twist and sugar. One of a desert drink to start of with and the taste is absolutel nice. A bit sweet in taste with hint lemon and end taste, it taste more like Tiramisu in drink version. – Recommended.

delucca (10)

If you love alcohol, and I was told that Italians they do enjoy similiar drinks before their meal as usually they have long dinner over the table by chatting and socialising over the dinner table is to start off with Negroni @ RM25 that is made of one part gin, one part sweet Vermouth and one part bitters, traditionally Campari, garnished with an orange peel, it is known as an aperitif or pre-dinner cocktail intended to stimulate the appetite.

Do not know what to eat again at Sunway and got suggested to eat Italiannies so directly agreed to that suggestion as I have not tried that branch before. From what I feel, the interior is better than the one in The Gardens as it is a bit classic compare to Gardens where I think it is a bit modernise.

I was seated directly at the back of the restaurant and found that this wall of pictures is quite interesting.

It was quite a lot of people for weekdays.
So again the usual routine, start off with the ‘Marsala Mushroom Soup’ and the taste I feel that it is better than the 1 in The Gardens Branch. RM 12.90
As usual, to me to test a Italian restaurant I usually would test their Carbonara which I feel the simplest dish and which turn out to be a bit disappointed as it is quite dry, compare to what I always wanted or to be is more white sauce. Not like Char Koey Teow. Part of it I also feel that the Fettucini not cook enough. Well, sadly it cost about RM29.90 which I feel abit pricy.
After that piece of Tiramisu from the Gardens, I never miss to ordered it again in this branch. To my expectation it taste the same which is very satisfying. Creamy, cheezy, enough chocolate powder and soft enough which is just freshly made. ‘Sluurppp‘……RM 16.90 for this.
Overall, it is still so so only and to the final stop of Italiannies I will try out the 1 in One-U which most of my friend claims to be very very nice.
