Food Review – Supperclub KL @ TREC
So the MHB girls and I headed over to Supperclub KL recently to try out their newly revamped menu! I've always wondered what Supperclub was or is and finally I got to explore and experience this really unique place that's on Electric Boulevard or Phase 1 of Trec. It is an upscale Gastrobar and Lounge, and was one of the first tenants there too. TREC, which is the country’s first and only purpose-built, urban Food and Beverage, lifestyle and commercial destination.
After a few months in operation, Supperclub noticed that TREC needed a F&B establishment which offers diners a premium, more exclusive, dining experience. Hence, they decided to engaged the services of an experienced international chef to revamp their menu to meet that need (yay for us foodies!). We were totally stoked to be one of the first to try this new menu!
Supperclub KL has a few different sections for diners to choose from – the al fresco section outside if you like people watching while having a drink or some light bites, the island bar section if you like watching the bartenders in action, the high table section which is great if you’d like to have some drinks in an aircon environment, and the low table dining area which is more conducive for dinner.
Signature Oyster shooters – RM32.00 (minimum order of 3 shots)
I love oysters and this is definitely for all oyster lovers out there! Fresh oysters swimming in a shot of ABSOLUT vodka and spiced tomato juice, can I say major yums? I hardly ever enjoy oyster shooters but I definitely recommend this one and at Supperclub.
Salmon with Guacamole – RM28.00
A bit of a fusion of flavours here with the Tex-Mex guacamole paired with slices of salmon and topped with caviar! You can never go wrong with a pairing like that, this was one of my fave dishes too!
The Scallop Ceviche – RM32.00
This appetiser reminds me so much about Melbourne. It is spicy, piquant and sweet at the same time! The scallops were so fresh that it oozes sweetness while the vinaigrette was a perfect balance and pulled the dish together. This dish will definite whet your appetite for the mains to follow.
Grilled Eggplant with Ruffalo – RM32.00
This was Kelly’s favourite appetiser! The combination of eggplant with the creamy Ruffalo cheese and green pesto sauce was a match made in heaven.
I am a sucker for risotto so I would say that this was something I looked forward to tasting and it didn't disappoint! This was a very hearty dish indeed that had a generous amount of seafood hidden underneath. The flavourful risotto rice was cooked with a tomato base and paprika, giving it a lovely red tint.
Squid Ink Tagliatelle
Homemade black flat pasta served with fresh scallops, broccoli & cherry tomatoes. The plump and juicy scallops were a hit among the girls. I guess we just love our seafood fresh and juicy.
Foie Gras Pasta
A somewhat unusual combination that I honestly had my doubts about but it turned out to be surprisingly delicious! Definitely going back just for this.
Lobster Salad – RM288 for whole lobster/ half lobster for RM148
The most expensive item on the menu. A beautifully cooked full/ half lobster with some greens and pieces of mango to balance the overall flavours of the dish. The lobster flesh is so sweet and succulent that you won’t even need the sauce that comes with this dish.
Lobster cooked two ways
This is great choice for those who can't decide. You can have them done both ways. While the lobster tail is roasted, while the claws are broiled and served with Rouille sauce, served with a side salad and French fries. Again the chef showcased his prowess for cooking lobster with this gorgeous offering!
Grass Fed Angus Beef
Choice of Rib Eye – RM108 for 300gm or Tenderloin – RM132 for 300gm
served with black pepper sauce (other sauces available too)
Do yourself a favour and order this medium rare to fully enjoy it. I normally have mine medium but I would give this an exception and probably only here. The tenderloin was perfectly cooked – ensuring that the meat was juicy, tender and flavourful. Melted in my mouth! A perfect treat for a meat eater.
To end the meal we had two desserts, the first of which was the tiramisu which was creamy and had a nice coffee flavour. I don't drink coffee so I don't really have much to comment on this although the girls were definitely enjoying it.
My favourite dessert and I am very particular about it because my standard for Creme Brulee has been set really high as no where so far beat the one I've tasted in Melbourne, but this, this dish served here made the cut; creamy and with a crispy sugar top that’s beautifully caramelised.
Enjoying some cocktails after the decadent meal
You can move over to the higher tables for a more bar experience after dinner
A nice place to chill over some drinks like draught beers, cocktails, liquor, wine or even champagne!
The establishment transforms into a club later into the night so you can just stay there and party
All in all, Supperclub KL is a welcome addition to the F&B scene in Kuala Lumpur, with its multi-concept offering and delicious premium dining options. Supperclub is also great for special occasions such as Christmas and New Year’s Eve and they have a special Christmas Eve menu specially for the night.
