Staying true to the urban contemporary vibe of Jade Hills, Kajang’s new township is the minimalist café known as Delicieux Coffee & Food. A newcomer in the neighbourhood since 2021, the café located above Jade Coffee House welcomes patrons into a spacious and simplistic space with chic wooden décor and soothing wall colours set against plenty of natural light that exudes a relaxing feel. The open barista island and coffee bar at Delicieux leave a lasting impression among patrons, especially coffeeholics. Not surprisingly, the café has gained much popularity among residents not only in Kajang and surrounding areas but also among KL-ites who enjoy long drives over the weekend in search of scrumptious and affordable café-style cuisine amidst a cosy ambience.
With a name that literally translates to ‘delicious’ in French, the cafe is a dream come true for co-owners and friends, Jean Liew and Chef Feez who are inspired by their culinary talents and deep-rooted love for food and the hospitality industry. Their helping hand in the form of mentor-investor Lawrence Liew was crucial to the duo realising their dream of owning a cafe.
To a large extent, the wide array of delectable dishes at Delicieux is an extension of the duo’s personal favourites – a harmonious blend of fusion flare with hints of Western, Asian, and local flavours across its starters, mains, all-day breakfasts, burgers, and Malaysian staples. The cafe prides itself on its potent sauces that add an amazing touch to signature dishes such as Nasi Minyak Ayam Percik, Pesto Pasta, and Lamb Shank. An emphasis on three key aspects of culinary arts – colour, aroma, and flavour embodies the core principle behind the food techniques and stunning food presentation at Delicieux, all thanks to Chef Feez. A distinctive feature of the dining experience at Delicieux is the Insta-worthy food plating of fine dining standards that set them apart from the rest of the pack guaranteed to capture the attention of café hoppers.
At Delicieux, coffee plays a major part in its appeal under the watchful eyes of co-owner Jean Liew, from sourcing the best quality coffee beans and ingredients to infusing local flavours in coffee offerings such as crowd favourite, Pandan Latte. Coffee aficionados will also appreciate the selection of cold brews and matcha-based lattes while non-coffee drinkers are not left out as there are various beverages to cleanse the palate and down more food. Unique concoctions of floral teas heavy on health benefits such as Eternal Health with roasted organic jasberry rice, organic green tea, butterfly pea, and popular tropical plant, pandanus are part of the interesting selection of teas at the café. Not one to shy away from creative mocktails, Delicieux also offers healthy and refreshing options such as Delicieux Mazagran with lemon, honey, and a shot of espresso for that much-needed boost of energy.
Despite setbacks during the pandemic, the team at Delicieux continues to be driven by the fervent belief in customer satisfaction, amazing food and coffee matched with a pleasant dining experience. As consumer habits and food choices are constantly evolving, the co-owners of Delicieux invest considerable time and effort in expansion plans and empowering young baristas and kitchen staff about coffee and culinary arts coupled with a diversified and improved menu to keep customers coming back for more great food and drinks. From décor and ambience to hearty dishes and service – the friendly crew at Delicieux strives to deliver only the best that makes an outing to Delicieux not only a feast for the eye and palate but a pleasant and memorable experience.
