The Journey Of A Lifetime
Back in 1989, a small dream took shape in the form of a sandwich bar in Bangsar Shopping Centre, Kuala Lumpur. It was in essence a step towards gaining independence and urged on by a whopping appetite for good, wholesome deli meals with universal appeal, as well as to satiate the taste buds of Malaysians and the rest of the world. Deli lovers themselves, founders David and his wife, Maureen, worked tirelessly in their home kitchen experimenting, taste-testing and creating fresh new concepts and flavours. They would soon find out the hard work would pay off beyond their wildest imagination.
A Taste Of Adventure
The adventure began with a selection of open-cut sandwiches, gourmet pies and some home-cooked deli meals, including the first ¼ Roast Chicken that took Kuala Lumpur by storm. Responses were gauged, and a journey strung with discoveries and improvisations that molded the Dave’s Deli character commenced. In a way, it was like entering unchartered taste territory: exciting, filled with anticipation, tinged with expectation and risk.
Spiced With The Right Ingredients
Only the freshest ingredients, handpicked in the wee hours of the morning and carted to David and Maureen’s home kitchen were used. Great pains were taken to ensure that the final product was smacked of quality and tasty goodness. Today a central commissary has taken over under the watchful eyes of David, Maureen, and their two sons, Darren, and Brian, supported by a full team of professionals with the same stringent standards and dedication they have always practiced.
Come Home To Good Food
Dave’s Deli’s pursuit to provide delightful and fascinating flavours to Malaysians has also opened its doors to another concept restaurant, Dave’s Bistro Bar & Grill, and with many more in the pipeline. There is a saying: you only can cook well if you love to eat. Well, we here in the Dave’s Deli family love to eat! The past two decades has been an exciting journey. However the success so far is just the beginning. As we look to the future, we are determined to uphold our promise to serve tasty, unpretentious and good comfort food at exceptional value.
