Delucca @ One Residency, Nagasari

August 2, 2009

Delucca has improved by leaps and bounds since our previous visit (reviewed here, March 5). With new chef Nicola Carradori aboard, this place deserves serious attention from any Italian food lover in KL.

Seared tuna loin coated with sesame and served with pickled veggies. Might be better if the tuna was more lightly seared, but still a respectable effort.

Prawn souffle with carrot cream. Heavenly; probably the best savoury souffle I've ever had. Fluffy and perfectly flavoured. Don't leave without trying this.

Green salad with mixed mushrooms. Tasty and refreshing enough.

Carrot and ginger soup with clams and basil. Thick, creamy comfort food.

Tortelloni stuffed with pumpkin in a saffron & mascarpone sauce. Marvelous mix of tastes & textures. Deserves a prominent, permanent place on the menu.

Rum baba. Delicate yeast cakes saturated in liquor. Am not usually a dessert fan, but this bowled me over. I could have eaten a dozen of these.

Chocolate mousse. Equally sensational. Decadent yet light and not too sweet.

Apple Martini and Whiskey Sour (whiskey, lemon, egg white, sugar).

Long Island Iced Tea and Coffee Martini.

Some Italian white wine helped make this a lunch to remember fondly.
