The DoughNADs bring on the bomboloni

Doughnut pass these up: With bomboloni becoming bigger than ever in the Klang Valley this year, The DoughNADs do a delicious version of these Italian-inspired filled doughnuts.

Expect soft, sugary treats that yield to the merest touch of the fingers as you pick them up, light and fluffy to the bite but rich and decadent to the chew.

In our box of six (RM50),  the ChocoMel might be our favourite, bringing together bittersweet chocolate with a bright caramel. The Very Berry Strawberry's stuffing is indulgently almost like melted ice cream, blending cream cheese with fresh strawberry jam, while the Tiramisu is the most elegantly subtle of this trio, gentle in its cheese and caffeine facets. We definitely should have ordered the other flavours too - the Biscoff Bombe, Vanilla Bean and Coffee Cream.

Lasilicious Bakery & Cafe, Bangsar

When life gives you Lasilicious, order a lemon butter cake at this bakery-cafe that’s fresh in Bangsar; the cake is densely moist, as lemony-buttery as we’d hope for (RM10 per slice). 

Looking for something less sugary but still decadent? Lasilicious’ thickly slathered avocado sandwich with a creamy fried egg should help you look on the sunny-side-up of life (RM12).

Fun fact: Lasilicious is a play on the name of its founder, Thulasi.

Hard Attack, Taman Tun Dr Ismail

Snack attack: This new TTDI-based delivery service specialises in moreish munchies. 

The Cheese Burger Wontons (RM11.50) come filled with fresh ground meat, turning burger patties into bite-sized parcels of protein, wrapped in skin that's supple in the centre, crisp around the edges.

The Coconut Crack (RM8.50) might be addictive for the sweet tooth, stuffed with a textured medley of grated coconut and almond bits in golden skin that crackles and pops. A coconut cream cheese dip with orange cream sauce is the capstone for this tropical-tinged treat.

Daily, 10am-7pm.

Burger Blek, Sri Petaling

Sri Petaling's saucy, spicy new take on fried chicken deliveries is battering up a storm of succulence.

Burger Blek's chicken is crowd-pleasing - crunchy-battered thigh meat, conveniently deboned, sandwiched in burgers (RM10.50) or served on their own ( (RM12.90 for two pieces, partnered with three sauces).

The secret weapon is Burger Blek's trio of sauces - the Devil's Hot Sauce fans the flames, the Holy Cheese Sauce promises creamy indulgence, and the Secret Black Pepper Sauce tickles the taste buds.

Pasta Boss

The evolution of pasta in Malaysia: Pasta Boss' Beef Rendang Carbonara Pasta pours full-bodied flavour into succulent, seven-day-brined brisket, mingling harmoniously with a light, lemony cream sauce (RM23), while the ChimmiChicken Ulam Pesto Pasta seeks to celebrate ulam raja, though it's mainly nutty-tasting of almonds, zesty with chicken that's marinated with fresh coriander, jalapeƱos and orange (RM21). Either dish can be had with spaghetti or penne, reaching us al dente despite the delivery travel.

Cata, Bukit Damansara: Baking up beautiful bagels for deliveries

Bring us these bagels! Cata’s delivery-friendly bagels are lovingly handcrafted with 00 finely ground Italian flour and organic barley malt-syrup, cold-proofed overnight, punched down, risen at room temperature, boiled, brushed with egg wash, and then finally baked. 

This painstaking boil-then-bake precision marks the time-honoured, old-school method to create bagels with a crusty, glossy-crisp sheen and a pleasantly dense chew, sturdy and satisfying to bite down on.

Cata’s bagels come in two varieties - plain if you prefer subtly savoury simplicity, or the multigrain, with an earthy ensemble of sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, white sesame seeds and flaxseeds (RM6 each, or RM28 for a set of five).

Cata offers scrumptious spreads to pair with the bagels - the Cream Cheese is a can't-fail classic, laced with diced scallions and capsicum for rich, creamy-crunchy textures (RM12), while the Japanese cucumber, loaded with dill and capsicum, is refreshingly uplifting with fresh-green flavours (RM11).

Cata even turns these bagels into a full, balanced meal, stuffing them with scallion cream cheese, arugula, and vine-ripened tomatoes (RM13). 

To pick a protein-powered bagel, order the Gravlax, brimming with smooth, thickly luscious slices of house-cured salmon, perfectly paired with red onions and capers (RM26.50).

Fowl feast: Fans of offal will enjoy the Chopped Chicken Liver Bagel, punchy with a pate-like filling that's buoyed by chopped eggs, dill pickles, capers and red onions (RM17), while the Breaded Chicken Schnitzel Bagel is bolstered by breaded chicken with remoulade sauce, a playful bagel-based take on chicken sandwiches (RM18). 

Need more carbs? Cata's current repertoire comprises everything from croissants to baguettes. Round out your meal with a snack or three - the Fried Spanish Onion Rings, with a light buttermilk batter, are irresistibly addictive (RM11).

50-G, Plaza Damansara, Jalan Medan Setia 2, Bukit Damansara, 50490 Kuala Lumpur.
Open Tuesday-Sunday, 10am-7pm. To order:
