IT’S GOING DOWN
Good music, great food and enjoyable company are all you need for a fun night out. Luckily, the first two of those three things have been taken care of by the good people of Timbre at The Row. It’s the Timbre Group’s sixth branch and their first in Malaysia. Like its sister branches in Singapore, its warm and inviting character is a staple of the well-loved brand, and what sets it apart from the nearby competition is its array of nightly live entertainment which will easily charm you. But right off the bat, its impressive menu will be the highlight of your night. Not always a big fan of lamb (or any red meat, for that matter), so this is a dish I wouldn’t have picked if I were dining solo. But, boy, was I surprised. Served with coconut lemongrass emulsion, sautéed sweet pears and caramelised onions, this rack of lamb loins was wellcooked. Juicy, tender and seasoned to perfection, it was definitely the star of the show that evening. Picking just one kind of pizza topping is hard enough (#FWP) but the going gets real tough when you’re presented with 14 different options. If you’re as indecisive as we were, then you could try our favourite combo – the roasted duck with the crispy caramel anchovies: A satisfying salty-meets-sweet crunchy yet chewy mix.
On one side, you’ll have roasted duck breast, sautéed with shiitake mushroom and topped with crispy popiah skin for that little extra crunch. On the other, you’ll have the freshness and juiciness of sautéed red onion, pineapples on
The bar is set pretty high for other live music bistros in the scene.
A pretty cool spot to hang out and wind down. There are also many sister branches in Singapore!
