What would you do if you have the opportunity to be free for a day or two???
Yeah I know... too short for holiday or vacation elsewhere. But a weekend getaway won't hurt :) that's what Jenn & I did when her mother agreed to look after Sher Ryn for the weekend. Both of us had not gone out for a romantic dinner ever since Sher Ryn came into our lives. The feisty little princess really had us restless most of the times.
Off to KL we went... wanted to go somewhere quiet and romantic for dinner, we opted for Tasting Room in Bangsar. Located above Wine Cellar, this place was indeed very quiet and perfect for both of us to chat the night away :)
Once we were seated and orders were taken, this was given to us... I like the crispy-ness of the nachos-like crepe, and the tangy-ness of the sauce. Both of us were so darn hungry that night and so the plate was literally licked clean in seconds!!
Creamy seafood chowder with seafood and diced vegetables @ RM15 - two hot from the oven toasts were given to dip into the soup. Both of us loved the creamy and cheesy soup with lots of seafood bits inside. Breads were fresh too!
For main order, Jenn had the Pan Seared New Zealand Lamb Tenderloin @ RM48 - served with shimiji mushroom , rosemary sauce and sauteed creamy potato gnocchi with herbs and spices. For someone who doesn't eat lamb (me!), I tried to have a bite and found it to be tender when it was done medium-well. Still... it had the smell of lamb which I didn't like. But then, I finished almost half of the potato gnocchi... simply a delight!
I had the Smoked Duck @ Chicken Thigh @ RM38 - baked in oven with onion compote and roasted vegetable. I really love the tenderness of the smoked duck meat. I'd not tasted anything better than this compared to our Chinese style roasted duck. The chicken was good as well but I prefer the duck.
As for dessert, we settled for Chocolate Cosmos @ RM19 - another hit with both of us. It was not overly sweet with ice cream on top... and chocolate + strawberry sauce to complement it.
Our romantic outing is definitely not complete without a bottle of red wine. We had this... Treehouse Pinot Noir 2006. Jenn always like wine which is fruity and not too strong. Costing us RM82, it was a perfect ending to our dinner... maybe both of us had not tasted wine for a long time as we were quite tipsy at the end of the night.
Leo's verdict - to keep it simple, we love this place and will be back!!!
