Warm & welcoming, D’Lee Deli is a casual hangout at Casa Tropicana that works well for kicking back over snacks & sweets. Its catchy name marks a pun-loving play on the surname of its founder Ken Lee, who runs the cafe with his partner Jacqueline.

Made-to-order Sandwiches

D’Lee Deli fulfils the fundamentals of a modest deli by serving made-to-order sandwiches, all fresh-tasting & encouraging hearty. The best bets include soft-shell crab with wasabi aioli, smoked salmon with avocado & chicken with pesto sauce (RM17.90 each), brimming with crunchy leaves in fluffy bread & bolstered with roasted herb potatoes for a balanced meal.

Waffles

Fans of waffles might have more fun than expected here – waffles can be personalised with a selection of regular or chocolate batter, with a choice of topping (blueberries, strawberries, marshmallows, Oreos, peanut butter or bananas) & sauce (butterscotch, salted caramel, dark chocolate, milk choc or white choc). The final secret weapon in D’Lee Deli’s culinary arsenal is its own-made thick soft-serve ice cream (vanilla or choc). All in all, it’s a creditable ensemble for RM15 per plate.

Other kitchen-baked desserts here include blondies, brownies & apple crumble pies, with a fresh-from-the-oven feel that creates a pleasurable hot-cold interplay with the ice cream. RM9 per serving; simple but satisfactory for the sweet tooth.

Soft serve is employed to enjoyable effect as well for D’Lee’s affogato (RM10), the perfect treat for customers who like a lot of ice cream in their affogato. Also distinctive: A lightly purple taro latte (RM8 for hot, RM10 for cold) that complements the outlet’s regular caffeinated espressos & cappuccinos. Thanks to Ken & Jacqueline for hosting this visit to their charming cafe.
