Tuesday, July 12, 2016 Appreciation Night at Nicsmann 1940s by Lewre

A fine slow step towards another event which I braved through to see what dinner at Nicsmann offer.

Since TREC is such a new location with Zouk being the main anchor tenant of the place, I cheekily headed to a recently discovered free parking due to that place still have not being fully completed whereby the main tenant at the end of what still is considered TREC is Jupiter Club. Though Jupiter Club had opened it's doors and occupies the ground floor parking area as their valet parking service area, due to those barrier gates still not operational, the parking there is free and that was clearly to my benefit during that time. But of course, Jupiter Club wasn't the place that I was going to. Oh, no. Instead, off I went headed off to Nicsmann 1940s by Lewre to eagerly anticipate on what they had cooked up for dinner on this very fine evening where becomes our main event organizer.

Nicsmann 1940s by Lewre is a part of Friendscino, a name that I'm more familiar with than the former mentioned. It's address is at: TREC Kuala Lumpur Unit E1-02, 436 Jalan Tun Razak, 50400 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia with the opening hours as follows:
11:00 am - 2:00 am
11:00 am - 5:00 am
11:00 am - 2:00 am

But enough ramblings on the restaurant let's dive right in to what dishes has been offered to us thanks to for providing us a taste of it that night in collaboration with FoodInk.

Our menu for the evening was simple. A usual complete meal course which consisted of an appetizer, a soup, a main course and a dessert with a free flow of Mango Ice Tea to wet your parched throats.

First came the appetizer in the form of the Classic Caesar Salad with Smoked Duck Breast.
Easily identifiable which I simply adore eating smoked duck breast. Some may find it a tad too salty but usually Smoked Duck Breast tends to be that way and can have it's similarity as pork ham. But putting it on a Caesar Salad can balance off by hitting on the greens. In this instance, the greens were adequate but I wish that the cheese provided were a little more spread out rather than concentrated at a layer and an area. Of course you can just push it aside with your fork and spooned it into your mouth when you want to mix it along with what you're eating so that's not much of a problem. Croutons are always a welcome delight for me in any given salad dish.

Soup provided would be the Homemade Wild Mushroom Soup with Truffle Oil:
Just tiny 3 dabs of Truffle Oil onto a nice sedimentary mushroom soup where the taste of mushroom was excellent and every scoop tends to send off some good bits to chew on where it's tiny enough to swallow whole should you prefer so. A well made mushroom soup which I adored heartily sipping through it.

Next were the main dish where you have a choice of Grilled Chicken Chop, Fresh Salmon Trout, Grilled Rack of Lamb or Grilled Meltique Beef which I chose to go for the Lamb route.
Due to the variety they're providing and they're cooked to order along with the many guests in the event, this took some real considerable waiting time before they finally dished out to everyone at the event. However, we get the distraction in the form of some live saxophone music to appease our mood as we await for the much anticipated dish of the whole evening.

The Rack of Lamb came and the presentation was impressive. Stacked with some sauteed fresh vegetables that's nicely cooked and some mashed potatoes at the bottom, those are nice and I can tell that it's fresh. The Black Pepper sauce provided that goes along with the lamb was nice but unnecessary for the rack of lamb. If anything, I think it would go better with some mint sauce. A little on the tough side for the rack of lamb but it's still a nice dinner that I had. I managed to savor the Grilled Chicken Chop chop a bit and that one was more delicious and goes really well with the black pepper sauce.

And finally dessert. They cooked up a spectacular dessert display to end our night with glee and celebration:
A sharing 4 items dessert platter that starts off with some fireworks for the pizzazz effect.
There's a Chocolate Lava cake with Vanilla Ice Cream on top, a Bread & Butter Pudding that's soft and almost has the texture of an egg tart, A Chocolate Brownie and also the Creme Brulee. They certainly capture the attention with such a presentation and the dark and light color balance contrast is certainly an amusing sight to behold.

The night ended off rather late due to a lot of waiting in between. Well, what do you expect from such a fine dining establishment. They cooked to order your mains and they ensure everyone finishes and starts off at the same time and I thank you for the experience to taste their food.
