Le Noir @ TREC KL

July 18, 2016

Malaysia's spin-off from Singapore's Le Noir restaurant & lounge is now open at TREC KL, offering a three-storey venue that includes an alfresco street-level space for dining, a clubbing floor, & a rooftop bar that reputedly boasts 360-degree city views.

From Le Noir's kitchen the Nasi Lemak 360° is the latest twist on our national dish - evocative of Italian arancini, these deep-fried rice balls are strikingly stuffed with slender capelin fish & quail eggs, completed with cucumbers & ikan bilis sambal (RM35 for two rice balls). Expect to see this creation pop up on your social media feed soon; it may intrigue novelty hunters, though the rice itself seems to border on bland - more flavour & fragrance might be needed to placate nasi lemak worshippers.

The menu of contemporary concoctions with international influences seems suited for sharing & snacking, with orders like beef sliders ostensibly marinated with Creole seasoning (RM27). Cocktails such as the French 63 (RM48; listed as sparkling wine, pomelo & sugarcane - only the first component tastes obvious) spring from the mind of American 'mixsultant' Joseph Boroski.
