Review: D'Lee Deli Cafe, Casa Tropicana

>> Wednesday, May 6, 2015

I can foresee this year to be a year with less blog posts :( With the mad work schedule of back to back meetings, UATs & once a month MTPs, I don't think I'll be able to attend weekly food reviews & write the posts in time. Oh, how I miss the life of an active foodie! *boohoo*

After a whole month of absence, I finally stole some time off work yesterday (and because I just got back from vacation as well) to attend a review at D'Lee Deli Cafe, Casa Tropicana.

D'Lee Deli Cafe is a simple cafe, opened early this year, that serves sandwiches, waffles, cakes, coffee, tea, juices & ciders. Tucked in the cozy residential of Casa Tropicana, this cafe targets the younger crowd who prefers lighter meals & enjoys tasty, sweet & savory creations.

The cafe is covered with interesting & positive quotes, which paints a smile on my face as I read each quote on the walls. Although the name of the cafe sounds like the slang "dee-lee-de-li" (meaning slow & procrastinating), their service isn't reflected by its unique name :)

Simple ambiance & layout of the cafe 

One of my favourite quotes 

Chilled cakes & drinks 

We tried quite a number of items from their menu as most of the bloggers were hungry by the time the review session started at 8p.m. :D Here are some of the items that we tried:

Cold Signature Taro Latte (RM10.00/glass)
I found this slightly diluted & lacking the taro "punch". Perhaps it's because the latte is added with quite a portion of ice. Having said that, the pros with this latte is that it's not really sweet (makes it taste a little too much like fresh milk though).

Hot Signature Taro Latte (RM8.00/cup)
I didn't get to try this, but I'm quite sure that it's thicker than the cold latte.

Green Tea Latte (RM10.00/cup for hot; RM12.00/glass for cold)

Hot Chocolate (RM8.00/cup; RM10.00/glass for iced-chocolate)

Kopparberg Ciders: Elderflower & Lime, Mixed Fruits, Pear, Naked Apple, Strawberry & Lime (RM21.00/bottle)
I've had this before at Labuan last year & loved the Elderflower flavor best as it's fragrant & unique.

Affogato (RM10.00/set)
Smooth & delicious!

Soft Shell Crab with Wasabi Aioli (RM17.90/set)
Each sandwich is served in a crispy-on-the-outside-soft-on-the-inside toasted panini, which has to be eaten 'right away' to ensure its freshness is maintained in every bite. The wasabi aioli is something different & gives the deep-fried soft shell crab an added dimension.

Chicken Pesto (RM17.90/set)
This felt more fragrant than the soft shell crab sandwich, but we found it a tad heavy on the salt. Any chicken dish with pesto is always welcomed into PerutBesi's tummy :P Oh did I mention, the side of potatoes were quite tasty & aromatic with herbs as well.

Creamy Button Mushrooms & Ham (RM13.90/set)
Believe it or not, this was my favorite, although the most simple of them all. I think it fits the bill as a classic sandwich more than the other variants :) 

Here at D'Lee Deli Cafe, waffles is like their signature item. You'll have a choice of classic Belgian waffles or chocolate waffles (each set priced at RM15.00) with your choice of 1 topping, 1 type of sauce & a scoop of soft-served vanilla/flavor-of-the-day ice-cream.

The 6 different toppings:
Peanut Butter

The 5 types of sauces:
Salted caramel
Milk chocolate
White chocolate
Dark chocolate

Classic Belgian waffle with blueberries & dark chocolate sauce
If you like a slightly more crunchy waffle with fresh blueberries & semi-sweet dark chocolate sauce, this is for you! This waffle was consumed within minutes or should I say seconds upon serving. Fresh waffles, who wouldn't enjoy?

Chocolate waffle with strawberries & salted caramel sauce
Unfortunately I didn't get to try this as I had to rush back for a meeting that I had to host (got back 5 minutes late for the meeting!). So sad. Looks really sweet though, so by the looks of it, I would still prefer the blueberries & dark chocolate topping on the Belgian waffle :D 

Oreo Cheesecake (RM9.00/slice)
No complaints. This is almost a fool-proof non-baked cheesecake that appeals to any dessert lover.

Blondies with soft-served ice-cream (RM9.00/set)
When I asked what's a Blondie, the response was "It's the female version of the Brownie!" Right.....and what REALLY is it?? Hahaha...finally found out that it's a brownie that's made from white chocolate instead of dark/milk chocolate & drizzled with a salty-ish butterscotch sauce to give it a balanced taste. I still found it really sweet despite the slight saltiness of the butterscotch, so this is THE dessert for people with a sweet tooth!

If you're looking for a light & delicious meal or a place for some nice waffles/cakes, D'Lee Deli Cafe can be one of your options. Parking can be quite a challenge though, so all the best! ;)
