Sydney’s Tank Stream Hotel launches innovative Malaysian ‘fine fast food’ concept – Dave’s Deli

January 22, 2018 Dining No Comments Email Email

The Tank Stream Hotel has added a new element to Sydney’s lunchtime dining scene by introducing Malaysia’s Dave’s Deli concept with the promise of ‘fine fast food’ – cooked slow, but served fast, in restaurant-style comfort – in the heart of the city’s central business district.

Dave’s Deli has been opened in a laneway venue in the Tank Stream Hotel on the corner of Curtin Place and Pitt Street, opposite Australia Square – one of the busiest office areas of the city.

The innovative ‘fine fast food’ outlet offers a range of attractive dishes served in just 10 minutes, at an affordable price. The philosophy is to go beyond takeaway food by providing made-to-order good value meals using fresh produce and quality ingredients, served quickly but in high-quality surrounds, differentiating the venue from food court outlets and American chain stores.

The collaboration with the Tank Stream Hotel will allow patrons of Dave’s Deli to use the hotel’s attractive bistro styled restaurant to elevate the dining experience.

With a tagline “Come Home to Good Food”, Dave’s Deli offers homestyle, comfort food including its signature roast chicken dish, beef and chicken pies, lasagne, pork belly roast and gourmet pork sausages. Dishes come with a choice of truffle mash, roasted vegetables, coleslaw and gravy. Seasonal and weekly specials will also be offered.

All items are made on site and feature Dave’s original slow-cooking and marinating techniques and his exclusive herbs and spices to put the emphasis on bold flavours and taste.

Diners will be able to enjoy their lunch in attractive surroundings and at great-value prices, with most dishes costing $14.95 to $17.50, including a drink. An introductory offer applies till the end of January, with 20% off the total bill.

Dave’s Deli will also cater for groups, with the venue being ideal for relaxed, inexpensive office birthdays and other celebrations requiring a central location and quick service.

Unlike other typical fast-food restaurants, service staff will be an important component of the dining experience, taking drink orders and servicing tables.

Dave’s Deli was launched originally in 1989, and is best known as the ‘home of the original ¼ roast chicken’ in Malaysia. The Delis were named after founder, David Chin, who saw a market niche in Kuala Lumpur for good, wholesome deli meals with universal appeal. The concept’s delivery of tasty, unpretentious and satisfying comfort food at exceptional value has seen the chain grow to 12 delis across KL and in Penang, with further expansion in Australia to be considered following the Sydney launch.

Brian Chin, Dave’s Deli CEO (and son of the founders, Dave & Maureen Chin), said that the concept had really struck a chord in Kuala Lumpur, introducing western-style dishes, and particularly roast chicken, to local office workers who loved the ‘comfort’ style food and prices.

“In many cases, our roast chicken was the first time Malaysians had ever experienced such dishes, and once they got a taste for the bold flavours and the ‘fine fast food’ dining concept there was great demand for new outlets,” said Brian Chin. “We now have 12 Dave’s Deli venues in Malaysia and we believe there is great potential for growing the brand in Sydney and beyond.”

Dave’s Deli – 97 Pitt Street (corner of Curtin Place)

Open Monday to Friday from 11.30am – 3pm. Bookings accepted for groups of 10 or more.
