Deli Menue by Le Venue @ Maritime Penang

Hardly we can find a good deli cuisine in Penang but it did exist in the 19-century especially on those bakeries available in Penang. 
Now the new tenant in Maritime Penang, Deli Menue by Le Venue has newly joined and we are able to find some interesting Deli menu as well as imported goods to enhance your cooking or to enjoy good food at the restaurant.

Deli Menue by Le Venue is located at Maritime Penang on the 1st floor so you can spot it right next to the lobby of Maritime.
From here you can grab your favorite Italian imported goods ranging from cheeses, pasta, pickles and many more.
The menu at Deli Menue is quite expansive, ranging from pasta, fresh cuts, salads, burgers, and many more interesting Italian dishes. The price range for this restaurant is on the cheaper side, so it definitely won't cause a bomb to your pocket when you dine in here. 

Before we start our meal, we had one of the most interesting Yee Sang ever in conjunction with Chinese New Year. The truffle oil Yee Sang.
The Yee Sang features fresh ingredients and topped with crispy salmon skin, cured salmon and some other cuts, making it juicier and even more refreshing with some lime added.
Deli Menu uses imported truffle oil and also added some truffle salt to make the Yee Sang taste even better and unique. This is definitely not the kind of Yee Sang we can get elsewhere.

The European Truffle Cured Salmon Yee Sang available at Deli Menue by Le Venue is available at only RM68+ per set. It is a healthier option as you get all the fresh ingredients unlike other Yee Sang that uses processed ingredients.

Then, we started our meal with some appetizers the Deli style.
Some fine cuts were chosen to form this plate of cheese and ham.
"Charcuterie and Cheese for Four  - RM88"
Before you move on to main, you and your friends can order this plate of cuts and cheeses that can easily feed more than 4 persons for sharing. They are very generous in their portion and also the cuts were pretty delicious and juicy. It comes with bread so this is like a pre-dinner snacks for us, but beware on the portion so you still have space for some good food later.

Ice Plant with Balsamic Mushrooms and Sesame Dressing - RM19
It was my first time having ice plant as a salad but kinda surprised by the taste of it. The were some goat cheese sprinkled on top and served along with olives and mushrooms topped with sesame dressing.
It reminds me of Japanese salad but it does taste good.

Poached Red Shrimp Caesar Salad - RM18

Organic Pumpkin Soup - RM14

Fresh Tomato & Basil Soup - RM14

Corn Soup with Lemongrass and Fresh Coconut Milk Soup - RM14

Spaghetti Seafood Aglio Olio - RM24
Cooked with imported Italian brand De Cecco pasta and cooked with some fresh prawns, clams, and mussels. This plate of al dente spaghetti seafood aglio olio is just perfect for seafood lovers. 

Rigatoni Chicken Bolognese - RM18

Whole Boston Lobster Spaghetti Aglio Olio - RM88
The highlight of the night is definitely the Boston lobster pasta which cooked with a whole Boston lobster. They have taken out the lobster meat and cooked with the pasta separately to make sure the taste of the salad blended into the spaghetti.
The good thing to highlight is the lobster was really fresh and you could taste the sweetness of the meat as you enjoy the pasta. Good ingredients do enhance the taste of a dish and making it more delicious. 

Norwegian Salmon & Egg Burger - RM18
This large portion of homemade salmon patties burger serve with crispy salmon is definitely worth the value. Not only the portion is big but the salmon patties are quite compact and you could taste salmon in every bite.
Replacing french fries with crispy fish skin is a healthier and yummier choice too.

Roasted Chicken Thigh, Potatoes and Cucumber Salad - RM24
Another super filling dish would be the roast whole leg served with sliced potatoes. They do away with most of the processed food and uses only the fresh ingredients in their cuisine to make sure their diners enjoy healthier and better food.
Without any doubt, choosing the whole leg would definitely ensure juicier and tender meats compared to breast meats.  

Special thanks to Deli Menue by Le Venue for the treat

If you are looking for a place to dine with your friends or any celebrations, Deli Menue by Le Venue is definitely a good option and wouldn't cause a big hole on your pocket.
