We started with the Smoked Scallop Umai Sushi, Duck Confit with Pomegranate and Yoghurt Sphere. The fresh succulent scallop is lightly seasoned and smoked with lemongrass and wood to maintain its original taste.

The appetizer is paired with Villa Maria Chardonnay from New Zealand. This is very light and easy white wine to kick starts our palate. Wish I could have more crispy duck skin to go with the Chardonay.

Next we are ready and excited for Nook’s must try dish. Our first main course is Sarawak Laksa with Organic Soba Noodle, Lobster & Abalone. The set looks so luxury, the aroma of the freshly grilled lobsters tickles the smell senses while the thick, rich and spicy Sarawak Laksa soup kicks my taste bud. I like the modern twist of this course when Chef Steven uses Soba noodles instead of the usual yellow noodles. Well, it is healthier at the same time the Soba is easier to digest. There is some improvements in Nook’s Sarawak Laksa soup, it is now thicker, with more pepper kicks and flavorful. I think I added the soup twice and also the sambal. It just me bet I like spicy food.

Well, the spicy Sarawak Laksa is so cleverly paired with Laffe Blonde beer to bring out the best of both. This is my first time trying Leffe Blonde smooth and the laksa soup taste better with the beer.
