Thin Slice

Browsing

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 (1)

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.

nosh (4)

 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

nosh (8)

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.

When back to Penang usually, I always wanted to go back street food but my friend always end up bring me to this kind of places. When they told me to dinner is at Island Plaza, I thought they must be joking till they said I must try this Japanese Restaurant – Ido Ichi Japanese Cuisine. Who can really resist Japanese Food?

Well, Island Plaza used to be one of the hottest spot to hang out 15 years ago before Gurney Plaza was constructed. One of a major place that most teenagers to hang out at that time, with many prime brands hosted there. Now they have gone major upgrading work to make it another look and feel.

Edo Ichi (1)

I got to know thru a friend that Ido Ichi Japanese Cuisine is actually under the group which Azuma Japanese Restaurant is also one of theirs. When I arrive, I am surprise by huge crowd and have to wait for 20 minutes for a table. Seldom will see this situation happen in Penang and its located inside Island Plaza, that makes me curious.

Edo Ichi (2)

They are operating 2-3 lots that make the dining area spacious with a few sections including sushi bar and close up area.

Edo Ichi (3)

Edo Ichi (4)

Price here are pretty decent and I compare to another of my favourite brand Sushi Tei in Gurney, its pretty much similiar

Edo Ichi (5)

 Then we ordered quite a lot for 5 pax and started of with Salmon Sashimi. Finely cut and its very fresh! @ RM 28

Edo Ichi (6)

For rolls, I would say that they have created their own signature style compare to others and tried both their Una Cheeze Maki @ RM 35 & Shake Mayo Mentai Roll @ RM 30. Both are equally good as ingredient are pretty generous and I like how the cheeze flavour makes it more unique with their own light sauce.

Edo Ichi (7)

I order something new that my friend have yet try is Tenderloin Cappaccio @ RM 35. It was all gone after I snap the picture. Thin slice beef that cut to perfection, with shoyu sauce and mayonnaise with the fine cut that makes it nearly melt in mouth. Order another plate again.

Edo Ichi (8)

Volcano Roll is not the best I have come across as I have tried better ones before. Overall, the cheese and mixture of ingredient in it is quite not bad for a Penang version. @ RM 28

Edo Ichi (9)

 This is the fellow who always wanted to maciam maciam places!

Edo Ichi (11)

Sukiyaki is pretty good too with the soup base quite salty as what I have learn, flavourfull that serve along with fine cut beef slice. It will be perfect during rainy season.  @ RM 30

Edo Ichi (12)

Yaki Gyuza @ RM 8 both item is nice to go along as Gyuza here won many places that I have tried, by pan fried the base perfectly to golden brown and ingredient in it a bit solid.

Edo Ichi (13)

Both Fried rice are equally good and I prefer more Scallop Fried Rice @ RM 12. Very fragrant with garlic with wok hei. We add extra garlic into our rice to make it extra kick. Seafood Fried Rice @ RM 12

Edo Ichi (14)

 

Edo Ichi (15)

By the time comes to this Avocado Guratan  we are all very stuff. Ended up I finish all this. If you love cheeze potato and some seafood this would be ideal for [email protected] RM 18

Edo Ichi (16)

Kimuchi Ramen turns out to be pretty good, mild spicy and sour end with thin slice of pork in it. Ramen is slightly overcook and if they can make it al dante then would be perfect bowl of noodle. @ RM 18

At the end of the meal, it was a very satisfying dinner with great food. If you are looking for some nice Japanese Cuisine, this outlet certainly would be one of my recommendation.

I have been to The Pool a few times for functions and friends party. Neither did I realise that there is actually a Japanese restaurant located above the premises  Its actually a new addition to the night spot and was previously operated by Spasso Milano before moving to Pavilion KL.- Kyoto Lab Japanese Restaurant

Kyoto (1)

With the restaurant name Kyoto Lab and there is actually a huge painting on the wall that resembles who is actually Kyoto for the restaurant.

Kyoto (2)

Its a very simple contemporary Japanese Restaurant with a simple touch of the culture.

Kyoto (3)

Simen wall and parquet wooden floor that made up the place and the best part is all their table is made of recycle materials (wood, steal and glass) which we are totally impress.

Kyoto (5)

Very simple menu with all the mains, appetizer and desert are available with reasonable pricing.

Kyoto (6)

A slight twist with western menu and some are infuse with beer.

Kyoto (4)

I was told that their yakitori range are pretty amazing.

Kyoto (7)

Kyoto Lab Summer Salad @ RM16

Kyoto (8)

Sashimi Nouyeou Salmon Trout turns out to be every ones favourite as a sashimi being drench with unique sweet and sour sauce, with a hint of slight spicy at the end. Certainly a unique dish as it is and worth to try!  RM25

Kyoto (9)

Kyoto (10)

Green Dragon @ RM24 – prawn rolled with Avocado.  Fresh fried prawns being roll along in the middle and make it one of a warm filling yet very fresh.

Kyoto (11)

California roll @ RM18

Kyoto (12)

This is one of my favorite for the night as cutting of mango cubes and tuna sashimi being rolled together.

Kyoto (13)

then comes the serving of yakitori range. . . Scallop Yakitori being grill to perfection. Soft and juicy and slightly chewy shows the freshness of the scallop. @ RM8

Kyoto (14)

Gyuniku Asparamaki turns out to be our favourite for the range as its thin slice beef being grill and season with their special sauce along with asparagus in it. Perfect! @ RM10

Kyoto (15)

Gyoza can be one of the best that I can find, pan fried perfectly on one sided that its crips and the filling in it is generous with ingredient, compact yet fragrant with their own seasoning. Soy sauce at the base make it a perfect combination.

Kyoto (16)

Egg plant

Kyoto (17)

Soft Shell Crab was finish within seconds as it was serve pippin hot, cripsy and soft inside. @ RM25

Kyoto (18)

Kyoto (19)

Australian Grain Fed Chilled Tenderloin @ RM60

Kyoto (21)

Back in Malaysia I rarely look at cocktail menu as they are pretty expensive and I must say I am totally impress with their cocktail menu here. Uniquely name and one of its kind. Then only get to know that its actually the same owner with The Hill Damansara. No wonder the watermelon looks alike~

Kyoto (22)

Jagger Bomb always comes into my mind but this outlet they make slight twist on it to Skittles Bomb @ RM20 Cointreau, Red Bull and Skittles, is the combination and taste good. Sweet-end with skittles if you leave it too long. Drink it when it was serve immediate.

Kyoto (23)

 Coco’s NutzMalibu, Rum & fresh coconut juice @ RM 28 is a must try cocktail with light coconut taste at the end yet alcohol kicks into your taste bud after that. Really one of its kind and no wonder they bagged the Winning Cocktail in 2011’s JTI Horeca Bartending Contest

Kyoto (24)

Watermelon Slush had made a big hit in their Hill Outlet as many people find this a good bargain and not only that, the presentation of the whole watermelon cut with at heart shape on it making it uniquely by itself and famous among couples. Till date its still one of their best seller. Doesnt taste alcoholic at all and its all overpower with watermelon taste and the more you drink, you will enjoy this drink alot as then the kick comes in, you can call it a night.. @ RM40

Kyoto (26)

This is no ordinary Milo Ais that you often took it at mamak stall, as the look of presentation might deceive you. They have made a special ingredient with it by adding Rum, Bailey, Kahlua and Milo @ RM 28

Kyoto (27)

Nutella Martini @ RM25

Food and drinks in Kyoto Lab certainly can impress us and of course it will be a great place to chill and dine with their amazing range both food and cocktail. Certainly I will be back~

Kyoto (29)

Right after the dinner, we head down to the main area to enjoy our next performance. . .

Kyoto (30)

Kyoto (31)

It was pack with people to see one of our youtube, or internet celebrity .. Who is that?

Kyoto (28)

We have Belvedere Vodka for the night as I always love mine to mix it with raspberry.

Kyoto (32)

New friends were made during that night along with the Marketing Manager of The Pool . .:D thanks to Isaac for the picture

Many of us know that 1-Utama is going thru major renovation especially on the old wing. From there, it had attracted many new retailing outlets to be operating in there and now if we go again, you get to see new F&B shops too. One of the newly operated outlet in the mall is this catchy shop that the front is painted red which is very eye catchy in the mall is this Watami Japanese Casual Restaurant as this lot used to be operate by Italianese which I rate one of the best in food among their other outlet.

[Update Jan 2014: NO Longer in operation]

Watami (1)

Watami is another new concept with Japanese Fusion style dining.

Watami (2)

Love the interior that painted with red, dim with orangy lights that make it a perfect comfort place to dine in.

Watami (3)

Seating arrangement also have in their own private session with a table of 2-4  .. .

Watami (4)

Watami (5)

A little private corner with table for 2 that have some wooden structure to block it.

Watami (6)

Watami (7)

In their menu, they offer quite a good range of food ranging from classic sashimi, Japanese rool, pan fried, and others.

Watami (8)

If you dine in a group, you can opt to choose on their value saving package group set ranging from 2-4 pax set. As this round we are in a group of 4, we decided to go for the set that is charge at RM200+ with the actual value of RM282 ++ that give you lots of food to be place on the table.

Watami (9)

YOu can choose what type of drinks you want but we decided to go for 4 different types.

– green citrus cola

– green citrus green tea

– green citrus tea

– green citrus Yuzu Marmalade Soda

Watami (10)

Assorted Sashimi is in a fine cut, quite thick and fresh.

Watami (11)

Tokusen Sushi Moriawase is a plate mixture of a few assorted sashimi

Watami (12)

Tempura Moriawase

Watami (13)

Teriyaki Chicken Salad

Watami (14)

I always love Japanese Salad because of their special dressing that pairs it very well. For ladies that decided to go for salad, this is one of a good choice!

Watami (15)

Wafu Pizza – pizza topped with terriyaki chicken that specially made in super thin slice which I called it Japanese Style, crispy on the edge of the pizza with the sauce that makes the pizza disappear within minutes after it was served.

Watami (16)

followed by an egg was serve along with . . .

Watami (17)

Udon that we get to choose in a types of 3 ..

Watami (18)

to pair along with our hotpot Shio Chanko Nabe, that is being offer in the set.

Watami (19)

First few sips of the soup taste great and addictive as it head towards the end of the base it gets more salty.

Watami (20)

One of my favorite for the night is Wafu Hitokuchi Steak, that is cook medium well, just nice to chew and dip along with the sauce to make it extra kick, yet I still prefer mine to be eaten without the sauce. . 😀

Watami (21)

Tokyo GyudonTokyo Gyudon is beef rice bowl with hot spring egg in Tokyo style. Fine slices of beef being cook along that top with half boil egg Japanese style. 

Watami (22)

At the end of the meal, the sets came with 4 ice cream and again we decided to order all flavour and share among us. Vanilla ice cream, black sesame ice cream, matcha ice cream, chocolate ice cream, one of the stand out ones are Chocolate and black sesame.

Well, Watami certainly offer a nice dining experience especially with their good attentive customer service that they have train for their staff.

When you are in downtown shopping, in Pavilion, there are something new for you guys to explore is the newly renovated Tokyo Street located on the 6th floor in Pavilion. Its a section that house many Japanese eateries, Japanese products and some house hold goods for you to explore. After they have open quite a while, this is my first time being here and SukiYa is one of my favourite.

sukiya (1)

Under this section, the whole area is filled with Japanese ambiance with their look and feel of all those outlets.

sukiya (2)

The outlets that are in the middle section are all mostly build with Japanese wooden concept, and lanterns at the side of the shop.

sukiya (3)

sukiya (4)

Most of the restaurant here sell fusion food  . ..

sukiya (5)

Japanese Desert – Mochi Sweets.

sukiya (6)

Another Japanese Restaurant .. .

sukiya (8)

As for this round, we are trying out this outlet that offer buffet spread which is Suki-Ya : Eat all you can Sukiyaki & Shabu Shabu, which is more like a Japanese Steamboat. . .

sukiya (9)

The ambiance is not bad that is pretty well design that if you come in big group they can combine all the tables for you in one section.

sukiya (10)

Sauce wise is pretty limited in selection . . .

sukiya (11)

Healthy bar that offer a good selection’s of greens to be put into shabu shabu . .

sukiya (12)

sukiya (13)

sukiya (14)

There are only 3 choices of soup available, Shabu-Shabu which is more like a clear soup and I heard the table next to me mention that the soup is tasteless. . .then we opt for Sukiyaki and Kimchi Soup.

Among the 3, Sukiyaki is the best as the taste of the soy is pretty strong which reflects to the original taste I had before, not too salty and its quite aromatic. .  Recommended among those 3. . For Kimchi, under Japanese restaurant.. not as good as you tried in those Korean restaurant. So close one eye .. .

sukiya (15)

sukiya (16)

Then on the paper they teach you all the steps how do you do the best shabu shabu out .. 🙂

sukiya (17)

We opt for the healthy options and pour everything in . . .

sukiya (18)

Then you get free flow of thin slice, Lamb, Beef and Chicken . . .The best of all is Lamb follow by Chicken then Beef as the beef slice I find it taste funny or we rate it as a low grade beef slice!

sukiya (19)

For beef slice, its pretty simple and quick that you just take a slice and dip it for about 10 seconds then its done . .

sukiya (20)

Then we had the sauce as the Sesame sauce is GOOD that you must request and normally I eat most of my food with their special homemade chili sauce.. A bit sour, chopped with lots of garlic and a bit spicy, that pair well with all the meat that I have. ..

My friend taught that, take a raw egg and stir it well, then after the meat had cook, dip it and eat along with any sauce it just perfect!

sukiya (21)

Then would let you finish off with Ice cream . .

The service here is good as they have alot of staff on duty and our slices of meet constantly got refill and the best part is the manager drop by and ask you, do you want more refill which we had raise white flag as this would be the first time that the staff ask do you want more!

For a price like this in Suki-ya I would say its a buffet spread that worth a try as it only allow you to enjoy 2 hours dinning which is far more than enough.

Adult (lunch) – RM 29.80 ++
Kids (lunch) – 50% disc off buffet price

Adult (Dinner) – RM33.8- ++
Kids (Dinner) – 50% disc off buffet price
