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.

nosh (3)

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 ..

nosh (5)

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.

nosh (6)

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.

nosh (7)

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!

nosh (9)

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.

Tug in a very hidden corner inside of Sapura Kencana Petroleum building in the area of Publika, you will find this little fine dine restaurant, Millesime. I have heard friends mention about this restaurant last year, as they serve excellent food that is a little pricey but worth the spending.

Update 1/1/2017]: NO Longer in Operation

millesme (1)

I do believe some of you are like me, eat till do not know what to eat for the day or next meal. One special style about this restaurant is that they do not have a proper menu for you to choose from, mostly will be the best set of the day as both of the chef uses or sources best ingredient of the day then come out with the menu in the morning itself. Therefore, if you dine daily here, you will have different types of food being serve.

Or if you feel being adventurous, just sit down and let the chef enlighten you with their specialty.

Ambiance of the restaurant with their hidden corner of the building, that gives us alot of privacy, not to mention service here is excellent as the floor manager really do know their stuff.

Its a huge open concept restaurant that they  have and you can look at the chef cook right infront of them at viewing area.

millesme (9)

Left menu will be set of the day and the right menu which they have recently came up are ala – cart menu for the week.

millesme (10)

As we were seated, we are serve along with toast of the day that made fresh daily and serve along with seaweed butter, that is one of the chef signature.

millesme (11)

When the manager put this few slices of bread on the table, it smells so good that we have to get a slice of it. Love grew towards the bread when we spread the seaweed butter along. Strong taste of seaweed with mild butter end, as eat more and we tend to spread the butter ticker till we ask for another round of butter, till Ken and me just cut half of the butter slice, and just eat it.

millesme (12)

After stuff myself for 5 slices of bread, next serve along is Amuse Bouche serve with a cut of shitake mushroom wrap with a slice of slice of smoked duck is bursting with flavour in my mouth follow by and  mashed roasted aubergines got top with feta cheese.

millesme (13)

Some of them commented, this is one of a beautiful presented dish that its so hard for them to start eating is Gravlax of Snapper and Salmon with Mizuno Leaves and Shaddock Nuggets @ RM32. Hard work had been putting in to prepare thsi dish, as been marinated with sugar, salt, lemon rind and dill for 4 days.  Then little round of salmon are place on the side, then shower with a golden-hued tangy citrus vinaigrette, Manukka honey and mustard.

millesme (14)

This is no ordinary tomato soup, as Smoked Herring and Oregano Oil are poured into Rustic Tomato Soup.

millesme (15)

Soup is creamy and slightly thick, as smoked carrots and leek were blend along. The taste is perfect when mixed with the smoked herring as it add the kick onto the taste. . I am definitely recommending this soup, as its unique in its kind.  @ RM23

millesme (16)

Squid Ink Linguine with Calamari, Chilli and Pesto in Olio @ RM45

millesme (17)

As the pasta is cook slightly moist, and with the perfection of al dante in spaghetti . Squid were fresh as its chewy, cook along with cherry tomato.

millesme (18)

Before our mains, we next have our Palate CleanserStrawberry Sherbet

millesme (19)

This dish will definitely be top in my list as Slow Braised Wagyu Beef Short Ribs with Polenta and Mushroom Ragout @ RM58  by the side.  Chef Patrick explained that the short ribs been braised for 6 hours with red wine and the taste of the sauce is extremely good, aromatic and strong in taste that the wagyu beef need not knife to cut it, a gentle touch is good enough to separate it. I enjoy every bite of it by slowly munching.

millesme (20)

Comes to dessert – Valrhona Dark Chocolate Souffle served with vanilla ice-cream.

millesme (21)

Chocolate Souffle is fluffy soft .. .

First time stepping foot into Mandarin Grill is certainly another new level of experience for me, as always the main entrance projects me the impression that they are serving buffet line, neither did I know its actually a contemporary restaurant. Not only that, with chances of being here along with few others are totally slim. Mandarin Oriental is known for its award winning owner and operator, therefore Mandarin Grill is something I am looking up at.

Many of foodies like us we surely heard about Michelin star restaurant, which is a fine dine exclusive restaurant that maintain its quality all year long. There are none in Malaysia. Guess what, now Mandarin Grill is getting an exclusive chef with experience in cooking 2-Michelin star restaurant is the new chef heading the kitchen as Chef de Cuisine is Chef Reto Weber.

Many of other diners are aiming for this desert, as those are some regular in here and its a must have according to them. Granny Smith Apple Tart Creme France Ice Cream. It was cook to precision that the crust is slight crispy and apple is very flavourful and you must eat along with ice cream to make it more perfect, yet to me its still too sweet as I myself cant take too sweet item. The rest are just enjoy to the max with this desert.

Wine dinner is one of my task to achieve as a foodie and I am glad to be invited to join for this lovely evening wine dinner at Marche Restaurant in Reinassance Hotel.
