Lunch @ a Delicatessen

What is delicatessen? Delicatessen is a retail establishment that sells a selection of unusual or foreign prepared foods. I’m going to author a book about food and this blog post is a step in the right direction.


Last Monday, my friends and I had the opportunity to attend a 3-days book writing and publishing course in Swiss-Garden Hotel, Kuala Lumpur. On the 3rd day of the course, we had lunch at Green Treats Delicatessen in Swiss-Garden Hotel.

The lunch set menu offered a few choices which consisted of a main meal + drink + dessert. The main meal was mainly asian and Malaysian food. Some of my friends ordered chicken chop rice. While others ordered claypot chicken rice. For me, I ordered assam pedas fish rice.


Assam means sour. Pedas means spicy. Usually, when we order assam pedas fish rice, the dish is more sour than spicy. However, it was not as expected. This particular dish was more spicy than sour. It was a spicy experience.

Nevertheless, when ordering food, I would go for value over experience. Value is equated with the number of dishes included in the meal. In this case, the chicken chop rice had more value than the assam pedas rice. The chicken chop rice also had popiah rolls and a fried egg.


Nonetheless, check-out Green Treats Delicatessen for more treats! It is located at the lobby level of the hotel. It offers a cosy yet trendy atmosphere. Complimentary WIFI access is also available for the tech savvy traveller. It is open daily from 10:00AM to 11:00PM.
