Ahhhh, finally a place whereby I can truely enjoy my dessert with quite a good selection, quality and reasonable price. I have always like cakes and even did consider myself taking up patisserie course to satisfy my cravings at random times. Nosh is the place certainly would be one of the place that I will be back hunting whenever I am craving for dessert.

Nosh is one of the shop that had been just establish for the past 6 months and already well known to its neighborhood in Bangsar. The person behind this whole establishment is a person who have passion and love towards dessert. What can we expect is as below.

A shop which is not really big but certainly a comfort place for dining with friends and family. To show you their passion on dessert, they have build a separate counter just to prepare all their dessert to ensure quality and freshness of their product. Not only that, of course other food are also available.

 Some cakes available for you to choose from ..

For some food, we started off with Smoked Salmon Salad @ RM29. Filled with Crisp greens tossed with tangy vinaigrette and slices of smoked salmon. Its something simple and light to start off with, little sour end of the dressing and the potato is well boiled till its soft. I enjoy every bite of it. Salmon is fresh.

Next dish is Pumpkin & Smoked Chicken Risotto @ RM38 had turn it into our favourite. Cleverly play with ingredient with healthy option, this risotto, delicately sweetened by the pumpkin and the smoked chicken pieces  pairs perfectly well that are thin slice yet very aromatic, with little cheeze slices on it. It wont be too cheezy at the end and I can actually finish this whole plate by myself.

Lamb Gnocchi @ RM38  is something that soft and filled your stomach instantly. Sweet potato gnocchi in a lamb ragout cooked with red wine is very flavourful and the lamb cook till soft and filled with flavor

Before our dessert menu start, I was introduce by Ann to try out their chocolate signature drink, Trinity Chocolate. Chocolate lovers would not want to miss this as there are 3 special ingredient to add up this flavorful chocolate drink. I must say one of the near perfect chocolate drink I have come across, slightly thick yet very smooth. Highly Recommended!

Chocolat Orange (comprise with alcohol)

Chocolate lovers will fall in love with this as its rich in chocolate filled with Grand Marnier-flavoured chocolate mousse, glazed with dark chocolate and with little line of citrusy orange. Slightly in bitter end and surely will goes well with a cup of coffee.

nosh (10)

Earl Grey Creme Brulee is one of the dessert that you must  not miss if you are a tea lover. Aromatic earl grey flavour yet did not overpower the rest of it and just delectable. – Recommended

nosh (11)

Creme Au Chocolate 

Baked chocolate cream paired with a tangy fruit of the forest mousse and served with a delicate crunchy nutty tuile.

nosh (12)

Coconut Panna Cotta

Something to chill on your mouth with local tropical twist? Panna Cotta – with addition of coconut cream, served with pandan-infused palm sugar and topped with a crunchy tuile.

nosh (15)

Strawberry Cheesecake

One of Nosh’s signatures is a pretty dessert,  topped with fresh strawberries and pistachios follow with French cream cheese, this  cheesecake is nice.

nosh (13)

Sweet Potato Azuki Gateaux

I find this dessert look weird at first glance then only further understand that its actually a deconstruct dessert that they have come out with their creativity. Green tea sponge chiffon sponge cake generously filled with twirls of sweet potato mousse and topped with rich azuki red beans.  Good for some one who prefer less sweet.

nosh (16)

Lemon Peach Tart

Another deconstructed dessert is buttery crumble with cubes of peaches, tangy lemon curd and topped with crunchy swirls of ginger filo pastry with a light dusting of ground cinnamon.  I love this too as its something unique that I have come across and filled with sweet sour taste.

nosh (14)

Walnut Tiramisu with alcohol

Another deconstructed version: rich chocolate sponge soaked in espresso and fine port wine, complemented by luscious creamy mascarpone, caramelized walnuts and generous dusting of dark cocoa powder.

 

nosh (19)

Apple Cinnamon Cake

Something warm and cold then Apple butter cake, filled with light cinnamon, is served with Nosh’s own gourmet vanilla bean ice-cream topped with crunchy sliced almonds on a bed of warm creme anglaise and for added flavours, a drizzle of butterscotch sauce.

This would be like a limited edition cake that is only available from May till June… just perfect for your Mother’s Day and Father’s Day celebrations!

nosh (17)

Black Forest Pavlova with contains alcohol

Among so many dessert, I love this the most which is also the well presented desserts in Nosh. The chocolate meringue lusciously topped with a rich indulgent chocolate mousse, decorate with dark cherriesand fresh strawberries.  Drops of zingy raspberry coulis dots the design on the plate for a gorgeous presentation. Love the chocolate flavour with crips on the body and the fruits on top pairs perfectly well. Not too sweet and perfect to my likings. Highly recommended! 

nosh (20)

 End with a glass of Latte and Trinity Chocolate is the clear winner in their warm drinks.

nosh (21)

If you love ice cream, its actually made fresh by them and no doubt that all of flavors are good and sorbet its a must not miss.

nosh (22)

Hahaha, its pretty true though if you have not dined well. Feed well on yourself.:D

No doubt that I would highly recommend this place for cake lovers with their huge selection of cakes that made fresh and price is absolutely cheap with their quality that they have.

Wow . . how many new brands have you guys come across recently.? One of the brand that I often walk pass by when ever I was in Sunway Pyramid is this Planet Popcorn kiosk that located directly below TGV cinema have quite some fair bit of people are purchasing this product. At first glance, it doesnt look appealing to me until recently the open another kiosk at Mid Valley.

Planet Popcorn (1)

It was rather interesting that during on the day itself it was their first few days of opening and they were giving sampling away and learn with there are actually 8 flavours available. Then I ask what is the best flavour for a first timer for me to try. The friendly promoter bring me to one section that filled with all those 8 flavours and recommend me to try out.

Planet Popcorn (8)

Try out Caramel . ..

Planet Popcorn (9)

Cheese

Planet Popcorn (10)

Sea Weed .. .  loving it. .

Top 3 favourite that I like are:

1) Wasabi, See Weed and Cheese.

I would highly recommend these few flavors for first timers. Or maybe you can try out their other flavor if they do have tester.

Planet Popcorn (3)

Price wise is not that expensive or I would say reasonable for a big pack like that.

Planet Popcorn (4)

Cute little logo that they have and different flavour have different logo. . .

Planet Popcorn (5)

Planet Popcorn (6)

We can either buy this in a pack or in a huge tub, that mostly had been air tight.

Planet Popcorn (7)

The I enquire on a few other details and one of the owner over heard my questions and he came by to greet. We had a chat as I further learn the brand itself as it is actually from Taiwan. Cool, another new Taiwan line of products coming into Malaysia. How they come by this idea is that, popcorn is part of our life especially hitting onto the cinema’s, watching tv’s or some chatting away with friends you need something to munch, as these nibblers will be great to input further into our society.

Their pop corn seeds are improted directly from US with the effect of the shape is totally different more eye-pleasing, mushroom round hand-made. It is also manually roasted, it contains absolutely no preservatives, butter, trans fat and artificial flavorings.

This outlet would be their 8th outlet as they had started the brand since last year Oct and its pretty fast growing. I was like ‘Wow’ and further discover that its actually own by him and another 2 best friends. Friendly lad

Planet Popcorn (2)

There are currently eight Planet Popcorn outlets in the country, namely Sunway Pyramid, Berjaya Times Square, Pavilion, Setia City Mall, Paradigm Mall, The Mines, i-City and MidValley Megamall.

Well,I bought their starter pack with 6 flavours (Original, Curry, Wasabi, Cheese, Caramel and Curry) at RM 39.90 to try out more, as I love watching movies and now there is another option I can get for popcorn. . .

I find that cant compare this brand with Garrett as they are in different league, although Garrett is more premium taste much better  and much more expensive but to me, I can take only a few pieces from Garrett. I guess comes, again different people have different preference. Garrett is too LV for me . .

About nearly 10 years ago when I was studying at Taylor college, one of the stalls that really keep us curious which is this stall called Rojak SS15 that opens its stall after 2pm which located in front of Shell station and when its business start, many people will start queuing to buy Rojak till we decided to join the crowd. As me and my friend are from Penang, one thing that got me and my friend confuse was there wordings, in Penang, Rojak means the food are add on with the shrimp paste not this version, that this version in Penang would be called ‘Pasembor’. Apparently they are one of the Famous Rojak at SS15.

Till last weekend when I was around the area, and I saw how come this stall so many people queuing up for the food only till I realize that it was the Rojak stall which previously located infront of Shell Station and now they have been relocate to this mini area next to Subang Square.

rojak ss15

Now they have several stalls together with one of the Indian stalls that sell there, we feel that they serve like really traditional Indian ‘kuih’ that just came out from the hot wok.

rojak ss15 (2)

rojak ss15 (3)

This is called ‘Vadai’ as the lady sell it very cheap. It taste something like donut, instead being sweet, its abit salty and spicy yet with indian herbs taste.

rojak ss15 (4)

Next is this  masalodeh which I rate it as a type of biscuits. It doesnt taste something like Famous-Amos but similiar as the above just that its crunchy.

rojak ss15 (5)

rojak ss15 (6)

Next to that indian stall, locate this stall which sells drinks, with their availability of Cendul, ABC, coconut drink in this hot weather is surely something hard to resist. Only then I remember that this stall used to stay by the side of the Rojak at the petrol station and now they have move in together.

I have heard a lot about this restaurant about their food quality and the best part is food from Taiwan. I just do not know why when mention about food from there, I would like woaahhhh, its like when people mention about Penang = Food. The term for me is Taiwan = Food as this would be my very first visit to this restaurant, Din Tai Fung.

This is their newly renovated and just open its door to public just before Chinese New Year with having another outlet they have is at Mid Valley, which I had walk pass a lot of times and its always full. To my surprise, this restaurant was ranked as one of the top 10 restaurant in 1993 by The New York Times. Not only their outlet in Malaysia, as their franchise spread over to Australia, China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea, and the United States.

Din Tai Fung

All the chef are busy preparing the Xiau Long Bao’s in the open concept kitchen.

Din Tai Fung (2)

With all the ingredients are prepared and measure correctly to ensure their food quality is there. What I was inform that, they do have daily QC check by their master chef as to ensure that their taste is the same and fresh ingredient are used to get the satisfaction out of it.

Din Tai Fung (3)

Din Tai Fung (4)

The new outlet interior design which is another total new concept that very different from the branch at Mid Valley as that branch with more of its crowd are family and the new branch decorated with modern classic style on the front section and the back section is all about back to the past with contemporary interior. . .

Din Tai Fung (6)

Din Tai Fung (5)

Besides that, they do have VIP sections or area to cater private function and only this 2rooms had the perfect view directly to KLCC and special menu can be cater upon request or budget.

Our setting and menu for the day and being greeted by the very warm and friendly host cum onwer Meng Lim.

Din Tai Fung (9)

Din Tai Fung (10)

Start off the meal with their cold appetizer.

Din Tai Fung (11)

Din Tai Fung (12)

This arrangement of tower is the ‘Japanese Cucumber’ had been season a bit and its very crunchy covers in a very very mild taste on your tongue. RM3.80

Din Tai Fung (13)

‘Taiwan Century Egg’ as the texture of it is different, softer and the egg base is very nice in taste eat it with ginger is the perfect way to start off with. RM3.80

Din Tai Fung (14)

‘Spicy Jellyfish’ is served cold and I love the texture of it which is chewy and covered with the taste like mild thai sauce yet it’s a bit sour, definitely appetite opener. RM6.80

Din Tai Fung (15)

It’s the same like Hong Kong or China food that they do have ‘Chili Oil’ as to accompany some of the dish to pull up the flavor of it.

Din Tai Fung (19)

In Din Dai Fung, all QC and staff training is regard as priority to ensure customer satisfaction, as the focus a lot on staff culture and ethics had been professionally trained as this girl is send by the Taiwan HQ to trained on all the new staff and making sure that everything is in order, as this is to ensure that their brand name served with tip top condition and all the branch you go around the region is the same.

Din Tai Fung (16)

‘Crab Meat & Pork Xiao Long Bao’ served next as it was perfectly steam and the soup in it is hot filled with the juices from the steam that ooze from the pork in it. Very sweet in taste yet a bit salty that stuff in some ginger with vinegar, it tastes perfect. RM12.80(6 pcs)/ RM23.80 (12 pcs)

Din Tai Fung (17)

This is the way how to pick up a Xiao Long Bau with the tip of it so that you wont damage the delicate yet soft skin on the side as you can drink on the soup too.

Din Tai Fung (18)

‘Shrimp and Pork Dumpling’ is huge and stuff with compact ingredient. RM12.80(6 pcs)/ RM23.80 (12 pcs)

Din Tai Fung (20)

This soup get me all excited as it smells so good. When the cover was open up I was like haaa…?? So simple yet so aromatic, ‘House Special Chicken Soup’ had been steam in high temperature for 4 hours using Kampung Chicken with a proper arrangement of the meat in the bowl to enhance the maximum taste of it and cook with some simple Chinese herbs. It is something very simple yet the taste is top notch, and burning hot with the way just as I preferred. RM13

Din Tai Fung (21)

The chicken had been boiled till very soft and dip it with simple soy sauce. It taste good.

Din Tai Fung (22)

I am a big fan of ‘Hot and Sour Soup’ as no matter I spotted this, I would order, just a big fan of this soup. In Din Tai Fung, the soup is RM7.50 for small and RM11 for big. Its mild in taste as it suits people who do not like strong taste yet can get to enjoy hot (which is not too spicy) yet the sour is vinegar side yet the texture of it is just nice, not too starchy.

Din Tai Fung (23)

‘Cha Jiang La Mien’ is done very nice with serving for a simple dish that top with mince pork, taufu and peas as some soy and chili oil added in.

Din Tai Fung (24)

The trick to eat this noodle is to add on some vinegar instead of chili oil as it totally taste different and much better. RM12

Din Tai Fung (25)

‘Pork Chop Fried Rice’ as the fried rice is simple but fried with wok hei and the egg taste is soft and blended well with the rice, with the perfect deep fried pork chop eat with chili oil is excellent. RM14.50

Din Tai Fung (26)

‘Baby Green Beans with Mince Pork’ as if you eat it randomly like that, it would taste abit salty but a perfect companion for rice. RM16

Din Tai Fung (27)

Even though we are full, there are always room for deserts as to me, I find this desert quite special as its in the form of Xiau Long Bau, as the back basket is ‘Mini Sesame Buns’ RM5.50 and ‘Red Bean Dumpling’ RM7 (6pcs) / RM12.80 (12 pcs).

It was a great lunch and informative too from the great host Meng Lim and invites from Sidney. Of course, I will be returning to try out their other dish.
