Sweet on NOSH

NOSH turned six months old and to celebrate the occasion, dynamic duo – Ann and Judith – came up with ten new desserts specifically for the month of May and June. I’ve been a fan of the food ever since my first visit but I always order the same dishes. Like seriously, always.

Sweet picks at NOSH

This food review had me sampling three new dishes on top of NOSH’s ten delectable desserts, and I think I’ve found a new favourite. Problem is, these three dishes are savoury specials for the month of May, so I only have until 31st May to eat my fill.

Smoked salmon salad

The smoked salmon salad (RM29) was a good starter of crisp greens, beautifully cooked potatoes and salmon with light dressing. Except that the portion is large enough to be a main course for some people.

P1080949

Pumpkin and smoked chicken risotto

My new favourite dish at NOSH is the pumpkin and smoked chicken risotto (RM38) – richly flavoured and such a delight to tuck into.

P1080951

Good stuff!

The risotto was cooked al dente, while the smoked chicken was a good complement to the overall flavour of this dish. This wasn’t too cloying either; a big plus point.

P1080959

Lamb gnocchi

The lamb gnocchi was a favourite among all who sampled it that evening. Sweet potato was used to prepare the gnocchi and I liked how it subtly gave flavour to the dish. The lamb ragu was cooked with red wine for a robust flavour and it went very well with the gnocchi.

Before I get to the desserts, let me highlight the dessert platters on offer:

Choice between any of these two desserts RM19
Choice between any of these three desserts RM29
Choice between any of these four desserts RM39
Choice between any of these five desserts RM43

It was a beauty parade of the new sweet offerings at NOSH – all pretty in their own way.

Earl Grey crème brulee

P1080966

NOSH’s Earl Grey crème brulee was well balanced in flavour and such a pleasure to eat. The Earl Grey flavour was aromatic and distinctive, yet subtle enough as to not overpower the overall flavour of the crème brulee.

P1080970

Crème Au Chocolat

I loved the Crème Au Chocolat – baked chocolate cream with mixed berries mousse and a nutty tuile. The richness of the chocolate cream was gently played down by the mousse and this bittersweet-tangy combo worked for me.

P1080975

Coconut Panna Cotta

Coconut Panna Cotta is NOSH’s version of a tropical sensation. This fusion of Italian cooked cream, coconut cream and pandan infused palm sugar was aromatic with the perfect balance of sweet.

P1090016

Black Forest Pavlova

The Black Forest Pavlova (contains alcohol) boasted a crisp chocolate meringue with chocolate mousse, fresh strawberries and dark cherries soaked in kirsch. Very indulgent, this one.

P1080984

Sweet Potato Azuki Gateaux

I found the Sweet Potato Azuki Gateaux very unique and ideal for those who like their dessert less sweet. This delicate green tea chiffon sponge cake is filled with sweet potato mousse and topped with azuki red beans.

P1080963

Chocolat Orange

The Chocolat Orange (contains alcohol) is a decadent treat and a must-try if you’re a chocolate lover. This chocolate cake is filled with Grand Marnier flavoured chocolate mousse and glazed with dark chocolate mousse. Bittersweet, rich and simply delicious!

P1080997

Strawberry Cheesecake

The Strawberry Cheesecake is made using French cream cheese for a richer flavour and texture. This was one of the best cheesecakes I’ve tried. Justly dense with a tart flavour from the fresh strawberries.

P1090026

Apple Cinnamon Cake

The Apple Cinnamon Cake is great if you want a lighter sweet ending. This simple apple butter cake had hints of cinnamon and topped with vanilla bean ice cream and butterscotch sauce.

P1090013

Lemon Peach Tart

Another light dessert is the Lemon Peach Tart, a composition of buttery crumble, peaches and lemon curd with ginger filo pastry. Not my kind of dessert, but only because I’m a chocolate girl.

P1080994

Walnut Tiramisu

The Walnut Tiramisu (contains alcohol) was delicious – rich chocolate sponge soaked in espresso and fine port wine, with mascarpone, caramelized walnuts and dark cocoa powder. This, I wouldn’t share either.

I liked the food and loved the desserts. Am definitely coming back for that risotto and hitting the dessert platters with some friends soon. “Like” NOSH on Facebook here. To read about my previous dining experience and brunch at NOSH, click here and here.

    Hi Logan,

    Thank you for your comment.
    We here at bangsarbabe.com are always open to invited food reviews. All the PR Company or food outlet needs to do is drop us an email at [email protected] and we will try to accommodate their request for us to review their outlet (please read this first – http://www.bangsarbabe.com/public-relation-101).

    To Logan: Hope this clarifies things 🙂

  5. The pumpkin risotto would be right up my ally too! The deconstructed lemon and peach tart is definitely my thing. 🙂

  6. Hey Sue Lynn, I tried the choc orange, but it wasn’t as good as i thought it would be, it tasted somehow ordinary although i could taste the hint of alcohol. And the cake was quite dry for me. Do you think maybe its because i dont know how to enjoy a good chocolate cake ? lol.
    I loved the other four, the cheesecake/ tiramisu/ pavola/ lemon peach tart was really something different from the average desserts like the likes of Delicious.
    Btw have you tried the chocolate fondant ? I saw it in the menu but it wasn’t one of the dessert promotions. If you had, is it worth trying ? Cause it’s more expensive than the average ones.
    And also i am interested to know what are your thoughts about Dip N Dip, I’m sure you’ve heard of it ?
    Sorry if I sounded rude and impolite in any way. And thanks for reading this long comment..

    1. Bangsar Babe

      Yes, I’ve tried the chocolate fondant. I usually go for the Valrhona Heaven. 🙂

      Haven’t tried dip n dip yet though.
