The Supperclub at TREC might not be the first place you think of when considering a delicate gastronomic experience, but it’s a delightful surprise. The décor is decidedly cocktail lounge, although its dining areas are comfortable, with a range of tables for couples and small groups. There’s a DJ console and live music area, so this is the kind of place that transforms around 11pm, so for hunters of fine food looking to dance off the calories after, this is perfect. Special mention goes to the Instagram spotlight on every table that you can use to take lovely pictures of your food.
The degustation menu comes highly recommended and starts off with a deliciously light and creamy cauliflower soup with poached eggs that is garnished with a hint of truffle and light croutons.
First starter of Hokkaido scallops showcases perfectly crisp-seared top and bouncy middle scallops sitting in a buttery lobster foam. An additional order of lobster ravioli is worth it, giving forth an amazing smorgasbord of flavours, with roasted mushroom fritters on the side, and a creamy spinach filling that brought all the flavours together. The next course of foie gras is really creative with apples served in three ways – sorbet, pureed and stewed. While the stewed apple encourages the caramelisation of the foie gras, the cold sorbet beautifully contrasts it with crispness.
For mains, the US Black Angus is an excellent choice as it comes with an extravagant garnish of exquisitely done foie gras and truffle shavings. The diced mushroom and Rossini sauce provides a balanced aftertaste to the steak. For seafood lovers, the turbot fish is another main dish available.
Save room for dessert as the Strawberry Lovers is an amazing combination of textures and colours with strawberries, cookie crumbs, sponge bits, pistachios, jellies and vanilla ice cream making it a wonder for the senses. Another dessert, the chocolate Valhrona does the same trick of textures, but with varying doses of chocolate bitterness to delight the tongue.
There’s a decent selection of wines and two house wines of each colour on top of an interesting range of cocktails. A striking drink is the signature Supperclub Whiskey Sour that ambitiously combines whiskey and apricot brandy with mango Calpis, lemon juice and Angostura bitters. The earl grey martini is another interesting drink that’s creamy smooth, for a martini.
Service was moderate, with high attentiveness, but mediocre instincts. Our waiter did recommend the degustation menu (which is an excellent choice), but failed to mention that one of the appetiser choices had run out. Once informed of her mistake, she however did make good on this by offering an upgraded dessert (the Strawberry Lovers over the standard chocolate soufflé). Waiters also tend to hover uncomfortably, and at times struggle with language.
For a degustation menu of this calibre, the price is very decent at RM218 for a delightfully presented 4-course meal by chef Romain Fabre. We would recommend going for the 4-course, and additionally ordering some of the tempting tapas and other desserts on offer.
