I’ve been hearing quite a lot of good feedbacks from my friends about Delizze which is located at Premier 101. Very easy to spot, you will not miss it when you are there. Decided to try the place out last night with my friend.
The place is divided into three sections, the bakery, the deli and the restaurant.
Pastrami, sausages, you can get them here.
Left: The menu, look at the boy, isn’t he adorable?
Right: Plain water(free flow, FOC) and Ice Blended Cappuccino(RM6.50). This is the most expensive drink in the menu. Very reasonable right? I wanted Ice Blended Chocolate but was out of stock.
I ended up ordering Malta(RM3.50).
We decided to try out some food there and ordered Cold Cuts Sandwiches(RM9.50), 4 mini rolls served with home made cold cuts, pastrami, mushroom lyonner, bologna & hunter, served with salad, tomatoes and cucumber accompanied with home made fries.
I love it. Tasted great and portion was huge enough for us, good for sharing with friends, I definitely cannot finish the whole plate myself. Really worth the price. Since there were only two of us, we had two each, so full!
I love the roll, I’m not really into breads or buns but I love these rolls. The fries was good too.
They have local cuisines too but I really don’t recommend them because it’s expensive. You better go for the western food. We saw the orders of the other diners, the portion was HUGE!
If you are there, order the food, share and split the cost among your friends, don’t have to order drinks since the plain water is free. It’s not that expensive if you do that.
However, be reminded that there’s a 10% service charge.
Gonna try out the place again when have the chance because I want to try some other main courses.

Hi Irene, can see you live to eat…..looks like a very nice place too…..
Must check this out should as and when I return.
You take great pics too…..
Have fun, best regards, Lee.
Uncle Lee, oh yes… I love food ;p This blog started of as a food blog but lately it’s been changing its direction to personal, beauty, and food.
What’s in my mind now is world cup football wahahahah. Have you watched some of the matches Irene?
biopolymath, World Cup is never in my dictionary LOL…
Haha… glad you were impressed with Delizze. But my experience with them is less than stellar. The first time we went there at 8pm, we were told the kitchen was closed. Closed at 8pm?!
Then, we booked a table and when we arrived, no one served us for five minutes. Waiters were bustling about, looking busy, BUT DOING NOTHING. Maybe busy ignoring us.
Anyway, Jee ordered a burger, my parents and I ordered steak – and they’re all awful. We’ve eaten better steaks than these, and the burger… Jee can make better ones at home. They claim the patty is homemade but it tasted like McD’s. My steak tasted like as if they put a lot of meat tenderizer in there, not fresh and juicy at all. The sad thing is, we kept saying that all of these dishes we could’ve produced better ones at home! And not to sound arrogant, but it’s sadly true.
Don’t think the food is worth the price at all. For us western food enthusiasts, we’re let down by these so-called western dishes. I rather pay higher prices to eat better food than to pay lower and eat subpar food, which we were expecting! Anyway… having said that, I like their deli section. Their breads could use some cover, it’s unhygienic to leave rolls and breads outside for flies to feast on. The cold cuts are the best deal there, quite cheap and nice to toss into a salad. 🙂
So, in conclusion the restaurant section is fail, whereelse the deli section is okay. They need to step up their game, but I foresee Kuching people flocking there anyway because of its affordable prices.
Sorry, I meant we were expecting to eat “higher quality food”, not expecting to eat subpar food. LOL!
Annette, I heard quite a number of complains too but mostly so far I heard good ones, guess it’s being lucky or unlucky.
Nah, I don’t think it’s lucky or not except in the service department. Food wise I don’t think we’re ‘unlucky’ to get that kind of quality, our expectations are higher and it’ll never meet that no matter how many times we go back and if they never improve. It’s all down to expectations. I guess I have too high of a standard when it comes to western food… I mean REALLY REALLY high, but I can justify that kind of expectation because I’m a western food lover.
Hahaha… Oh well… You were putting too high expectations to it that’s why. Never put any high expectation to western food place in Kuching, coz mostly or almost all will never meet yours.
Funnily enough, some passed. 😀 Let’s see:
Tom’s (inconsistent though)
Yeah, these are pretty great. Hilton has improved, though I’m rather afraid to dine there as they change cooks quite frequently. A recent trip there surprised us with a rather good meal; and the steaks are done perfectly, with generous portions. Yum! 😀
Oh, and yes… we need to have that kind of high expectations. I never will just say, “Oh, it’s Kuching so it’s okay.” People will never improve and just accept whatever these restaurants dish out. If you go to KL you’ll get a different story. Why? Because there’s competition. Like TGIF, or Tony Roma’s. They’re EXCELLENT. Restaurants here are too indulgent with themselves and complacent because people go there out of having no choice, rather than because their food is good.
Ah well… that’s just my two cents. 😀 I must sound so scary. LOL! Chalk it up to frustration and that in order to eat good western food, I have to fly elsewhere. One hell of an expensive meal!
Anyway, forget about it… Reading back on my post it sounded very harsh, but truth be told my bark is worse than my bite in this regard and I think I have rather forlornly accepted on a level that this is how Kuching is. Is it unreasonable to expect more? This question is brought up over and over again much to our weariness whenever we have to think of a place to eat, day after day. Until we’re sien with the choices available. As you have experienced recently with old town, you must feel ripped off and even disgusted with the quality you received… I guess that’s how I feel about western food.
Anyway, I’ve spammed long enough. I don’t mean to sound argumentative, or offend anyone in anyway. It’s just something I’ve noticed about our dear city. And I love this city, so it makes sense that I want it to improve.
ann, indeed not many can pass, not many good ones, the good ones are a bit too high end for the average ppl here hahaha… Also, most of the western food place here adjusted the food for the average local diners’ taste, for example, flood the sauce on the steak, it’s widely acceptable here because you know how our Asian food is, if you don’t flood the sauce to the steak, I can guarantee many, really many will complain. Since many people are not exposed to the real western food, they don’t know what to expect, just like in the western country, you definitely cannot get very good standard of our local food there *LOL*
How I wish TGIF is here but I’m not so sure they will survive or not with the price hahaha… You know la… The mentality here. That’s why I seldom dine in western restaurants here and even if I do, I seldom order those steaks or lambs coz they’re a big disappointment.
Haha… the sauce thing. I just don’t get it. This is really how you SHOULD eat steak, people – WITHOUT SAUCE. *lol* I heard reasons they give like they don’t like the beef/lamb taste. :\ Dunno what to say…
OK lah, to be fair not everyone can afford to dine at high end restaurants. But what everyone doesn’t know is that western food doesn’t have to be expensive to be good. All you need is a good cut (rib eye or sirloin), fresh meat (or very well preserved steak), no meat tenderizer added, some salt, pepper… and wala. Good steak. I’d dined in places overseas where the steak is affordable and the portion HUGE so there’s no reason why it can’t be like that here, even with import costs. Restaurants with decent western food here jack up their prices too much.
Then, at the other end of the spectrum, the one that makes me mad is how shops like Westwood can survive. That place is really, really a rip off! How dare they call those western food?! LOL. And people go there anyway.
Endless, vicious cycle. People want cheap, not quality food. In which case I’ll just say ’nuff said. Totally different mentality, as you pointed out so it’s going to be hopeless case. *shrugs*
Yeala… just like you say, they want cheap, as long that it’s cheap, they are happy. The funny thing with ppl in Kuching is that, they kept increasing the price when ingredient prices increase, it’s still acceptable but at the same time they decrease the portion, it’s not acceptable at all but that’s what everyone is doing and still survive. If in other places, then surely will be the end of your business.
Unlike Taiwan, the food portion there and the ingredients, they go for the biggest, the freshest, and best price. Price increase will mean portion increase too rather than decrease. They might not be making much profit but when they can sell more they will eventually be steady in their business. They will never take risk in cutting the portion or going for substandard ingredients because if they do, their customers will run away to other competitors but not in Kuching’s case.
That’s one very unique trait here that I notice *LOL* Doing business in Kuching is so different from other parts of Malaysia or the World, it requires some other kind of skill to survive, weird ;p
Haha… thought you were going to sleep early tonight? 🙂 At least, that’s what I thought I saw on your fb update…
Sometimes I wonder if Kuching will ever change. Have you noticed? Even locals can’t enjoy the best laksa in town anymore unless they are willing to wake up at 6am. Ban Hock one sells out at 8am, the one at Palm Road (Spring Cafe) runs out at 9am. Don’t know where else… but the point is, is this the way to do business? Habis already habis lah! No need to cater for others. They come to me, not I come to them.
That sort of thing. =.=
So yeah… Kuching’s weird. Like I said, they’ve grown complacent and lazy, because they don’t know what having to fight for business is like, or at least, not very aggressively so. When you look at another angle, it’s like some of them are quite arrogant also, like it’s us customers who have to kiss the ground they walk on to eat their food. So so wrong…
Hehehe… Not yet, thought of sleeping early but too many things need to settle. Yea… Kuching is very weird and unique *LOL*
