CLEO (Malaysia) - - PLAY -

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!
