Pizza, pasta and more at Delish

Entrepreneur-Chef, Mohd Rizal Mohd Ismail, 27, said it all started when his older brother was a fan of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles whose favourite food is pizza.

This food inevitably became a family favourite so when father bought cookbooks for mother to perfect her recipe for pizza bread, Rizal would help her make the dough.  

After enjoying mother’s delightful pizzas for the past 15 years, they decided to share their homemade pizza creations along with a menu of pasta, drinks and dishes at Delish Family Bistro.  Their Senai outlet offers fast-casual dining where orders are placed at the counter for dine-in and takeaways or phone-in for delivery at a minimal charge.

If you are like Rizal and his brother who want more ingredients in their pizza, then Mom’s Favourite is the choice because it’s topped with two types of meat – beef and chicken, along with slivers of colourful vegetables.  If you have a cream-based taste, then pick Chicken Pesto pizza topped with their own recipe pesto sauce.  Pizzas come in 7” small (RM10), 9”medium (RM15) and 12” large (RM23) sizes, with top-up charges for extra cheese.

Creamy Tom Yam pasta is a hot favourite not only
for its rich, spicy flavour
“This is how we interpret pizza but we can’t skip the essentials,” said Rizal who is proud of the unique crunch and herby fragrance in their authentic pizza breads.

Freshly-made pasta come in a choice of popular sauces like Bolognese, Marinara and Seafood Aglio Olio but sauces unique to Delish are “must-try” items.  These include Cilantro Pesto Pasta created with a delicious creamy based pesto sauce, rich with the taste of fresh cilantro or coriander.  

If you prefer a little zing, then it’s the Creamy Tom Yum pasta that will leave a warm, fiery feeling in your mouth.  You can order pasta serving sizes in a choice of Lite (RM9.50) or Normal (RM13.50), ask for extra pedas or spicy with an option to pick either beef or chicken.

This heat in your mouth can be soothed by thirst-quenchers like Iced Passion Fruit Tea (RM2.80), Iced Syrup Selasih (RM2.50) and Passion Fruit Soda (RM4.80).  Among the popular side-dishes are Delish meatballs (RM9.50) with a hint of Mediterranean in rich mushroom gravy and Baked Chicken Wings (RM9.50) in Honey Garlic or Hot ‘n Spicy flavours.
