The Delish is the latest joint on the Desa Sri Hartamas strip, that recently took over the old Jarrod and Rawlins space. It looks pretty much the same, and operates as a delicatessen and fusion bar that serves cold Tiger and Guinness on tap and a heady array of cocktails and mocktails. Operated by Mr R.N. Kumaar, who’s been in the food and beverage business for more than 19 years, it offers a menu, heavy on the meats, but balanced with a selection of leafy greens for the health conscious.
If the name, R.N. Kumaar sounds familiar, it’s because he used to run the Milawa group’s The Rib Shop in Medan Damansara, KL. He then left to open and run J&R outlets, so it’s no surprise that he is running The Delish now. There are plans in the near future to open outlets in Singapore in June and Shanghai in December.

Chef Vasan is head of the kitchen at The Delish, and again, he used to be the old chef of J&R. Now, after several years in the culinary business, Vasan specializes in pastas, grilled items and his signature dishes at The Delish, the mouth watering list including homemade Mushroom Soup, Fish and Chips, Salmon Steak with Penne Pasta, and Grilled White Fillet with Cheese Cream mushrooms, sun-dried tomatoes.
