Review: New York New York Deli @ 1 Utama

New York New York Deli - interior1

Just a quickie today as this place called New York New York Deli, opposite Cold Storage 1 Utama, is not worth so much of my time. I'll just let the pics do the talking mostly.

This is Summer Cuddle a thick frozen strawberry and mango drink which was ok but the thing was boiboi ordered Lover's Sunset which is an orange juice with cranberry. I have no idea the order was wrong until I paid the bill *roll eyes*

My order of Smoked Salmon Velvet (RM14.90) with a description of smoked salmon, tuna mayo, marinated tomatoes, grilled vegetables and stuffed onions came looking like this. The colour of the smoked salmon is kinda turn off. There were just a tiny blob of tuna mayo and I can't remember seeing any tomatoes nor grilled vege.

Smoked Salmon Velvet RM14.90

Boiboi had wanted pizza but they ran out of the base and it was only 7pm on a public holiday!!! So he opted for beef lasagna (RM16.90) which was just so so only.

The crazy Capt'n Hook went and order this burger...

The Giant Yankee Burger RM43.50

It's not any burger but a Giant Yankee Burger that costed a whooping RM43.50!!! It's about 8" in diameter and supposedly if you can finish this whole dang thing all on your own, you won't need to pay for it! I didn't even have to try ok cos by just looking at it, I'm stuffed.

The Giant Yankee Burger - inside

Capt'n Hook said the thick bun is DRY and the rather thin meat patty is DRY and just look the amount of cheese on top... so stingy. Don't bother to order ok, just not worth it. Anyway, this burger can be shared by 4 person. On yeah... not only you'll have the hazard of NOT going to touch any burger for the next one month, you'll attract a lot of stares and on-lookers who came up just to look at the burger!

The Giant Yankee Burger  - the size

Seriously, this is not a place I will return ever again! I've read the latest KLUE and there was a review saying that the food was not up to mark as they're only 2 months old and it could be a teething problem. 2 months and still having teething problems???

Anyway, not only the food was not up to mark but the wait staff need to be educated on what's on the menu. We asked one of them to explain on some items but she can't. She asked the manager to come to attend to us. This happened twice! Well, the manager is not well versed in English and had difficulties in expressing. Towards the end, Capt'n Hook gave him feed back in Cantonese about the burger and he just stare and nod without saying anything. Perhaps Capt'n Hook should have spoke to him on Mandarin???

this place was thoroughly disappointing when i was there abt a mth ago.

1) menu came sticky with ketchup. wtf.

2) the 'chunky' veg soup was pathetic. can count the number of chunks in the shallow vapid soup.

3) some of the staff were quite willing the help (foreign workers) where others (local workers) looked bored and lacked initiative.

4) the burger i had... was not outstanding. it was at best, the level of McD.

sorry... no repeat visit for me. pity... i thought the menu had potential.

Sean said...

gosh, this place has attracted so many negative reviews online. but i honestly think i COULD finish that burger on my own ... just that it's probably not worth it. :D

"Joe" who is constantly craving said...

Rebecca Saw said...

minchow said...

Oh the food looks a crying shame!! And this is probably the most expensive tasteless burger ever! OK, note to stay far far away!

Babe_KL said...

sean & joe, you guys sure ka??? 8" you know??? plus the bun is thick and dry!

nomad gourmand, did you try googling msian blogs? save your money and go somewhere else!!!

550ml jar of faith, yes not worth it at all

J2Kfm said...

Bangsar-bAbE said...

The burger looks terribly dry! Did Capt'n Hook manage to finish it? =P

millipedemom said...

Uh oh doesn't sound good. Even Subway, just a mere few feet away, would have been better I think!

teckiee said...

HoneyBee said...

Hah... And I thought the one in 1Borneo (Sabah) is the one lacking kicks due to geographical factor. So it's nationwide...

Babe_KL said...

honeybee, ahhh so Sabah's outlet is also lousy huh?

Tried this place last year (2009) and thought the clams in a light white wine/cream sauce was amazing. Am planning to go back there on an upcoming trip.
