NOSH, the best dessert place, ever

NOSH, a fairly new cafe in Bangsar Telawi area that has gained tremendous popularity. Yes, for their desserts. NOSH is the brainchild of two ladies (which I later found out that she is one of our classmate's mum's friend) so yay for girl power!

I agree with the quote above!. I snapped a picture and sent it to Guan Ren when I saw this as he is studying the novel "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf" in Literature. Turns out she's a lady suffering from mental illness LOL!

There's actually two menus in NOSH, their regular food & drinks menu, and their desserts menu. We have been to Three Little Pigs and Yeast before we set foot into NOSH so (naturally), we went for their desserts menu. 
Nosh has a classy and clean cut interior, with a neat and spacious layout. Look around and you will find quirky furniture. Such as the unique clock hanging on the wall, or the handle of the toilet, which is actually a frying pan attached to a wooden board.
 Quirky little wall clock!
We arrived at NOSH at around 3pm and we were the only customer there. Probably because it was a weekday and Malaysia has this norm of having desserts only at night. Our order arrived quite fast thanks to that.

Berry Harvest (Left) & Caramelized Pumpkin Panna Cotta (Right) RM29 for two desserts

Berry Harvest features a combination of tart berries spiced up with Grand Marnier, rich custard cream, fragrant green tea and white chocolate
The Caramelized Pumpkin Panna Cotta on the other hand, features a creamy pumpkin panna cotta topped with burnt caramel and Andlaise sauce, on a bed of buttery Pecan Walnut crumble
 "Get ready your camera!" one of our classmate, Jin Wei said when our deserts arrive. The presentation of the desserts itself, was a feast to the eyes. And there goes the old saying, do not judge a book by its cover. So, the presentation definitely scored a 5 out of 5, so how did the taste fare?
The body of Berry Harvest was smooth and refreshing. A little hint of sourness, paired with a fruity sweetness that is just nice, not too overwhelming, further enhanced by the milky white chocolate. The green tea cake base gives the whole dessert a slight bitter aftertaste. Bittersweet. This whole dessert had a sophisticated twist, but it all turns out well, perfect and balanced.

As a fan of pumpkin, the Pumpkin Panna Cotta immediately won my heart. Not just because of its subtle, sweet pumpkin taste (though I must admit, the pumpkin taste clearly is a win in this!). The texture of the panna cotta was light, fluffy and smooth as satin, a contrast to the crunchy butter pecan crumble base which was insanely addictive. The smooth Andlaise sauce complements the whole dessert perfectly. Perfectly. (I had to say it twice to emphasize how perfect this dessert was). The combination was simply brilliant.

The star dish of NOSH . The ultimate trio- Molten Choclate Cake, tart au chocolat & gourmet chocolate ice-cream
Now, one thing for sure, this is a MUST ORDER whenever you visit NOSH.

The word "heavenly" is an understatement when describing this dish.

The smooth and rich chocolate ice-cream on a base of chocolate crumble,  was so smooth and velvety I could easily polish off the whole scoop on my own.

The hot molten chocolate cake was a treasure. Rich, dark chocolate fondant come oozing out with a slight prick with a knife. The consistency of the dark chocolate filling was so thick, rich and perfect. Topped with cream and white chocolate, nothing could possibly go wrong with this dish.

My favourite pick would be the tart au chocolat. Crunchy with a subtle, aromatic cocoa tart, concealing the warm, molten rich dark chocolate. It put a smile on my face instantaneously. Love how the chocolate had a hint of bitterness. The sweetness was just nice, just a little hint of it, so that it wasn't overly cloying. 

Overall rating: 9.5/10

The complexity and sophistication as well as unique pairing of ingredients of the desserts served here definitely was a win. I dare to say that the desserts I had in NOSH is the best I've tried in my whole life (for now). Price might be a little steep but it's definitely worth every penny paid.
