Supperclub @ TREC KL

Fuelled by the talents & experience of its French-born founder Sebastien, Bangladeshi chef Badul & Russian mixologist Kirill, this restaurant & lounge aspires to be an after-work sanctuary for fun bites & flamboyant booze, a 15-minute drive from KLCC.

Supperclub's food highlights consist of European-accented tapas - the kitchen does a decent job with seafood small plates, from bruschetta topped with prawns, textured avocado paste & cilantro (RM23) to grilled baby octopus with extra virgin olive oil & lemon (RM18), prawns sauteed in tomato sauce, white wine & garlic (RM21) to scallops with a zesty jalapeno salsa (RM32). But what comes closest to irresistible comfort food is the soft-boiled egg on warm, creamy truffled mashed celeriac (RM18).

Badul, who has worked steadily with the Flam's restaurant group in KL for 15 years, also takes pride in Italian classics like seafood spaghetti & mushroom risotto. Supperclub marks the latest extension of the Flam's family, which Sebastien runs - you can now find Flam's main pizza parlour & its sister outlet, Route 66 Burger Bar, in both Changkat Bukit Bintang & TREC KL. At Supperclub (currently found only at TREC), customers can cross-order from Flam's & Route 66 next door - the former is best-known for its very satisfying tarte flambee (the Alsatian version of thin-crust pizza, with topping possibilities like beef bacon, Swiss cheese, fresh sliced onions & mushrooms), while the latter tackles American diner-style burgers that yield a tender bite.

Cocktails could lure the city's rising tide of libation lovers - Kirill has previously been a bartender at Moscow's Chaiyana Tea & Cocktails (named as one of the world's 50 top bars), & he's crafted some intriguing temptations for Supperclub; our best bets include the Supperclub Whiskey Sour (RM42; whiskey, apricot brandy, mango calpis, lemon juice, angostura bitters), Fog Over The Safe Haven (RM36; aged rum, creme de cacao, soya cream), Chapala (RM42; tequila, aperol, grapefruit juice, lime) & Flying Without Wings (RM45; rum, vodka, apricot absinthe, lemon), washed down with a potent parting shot of a tangy oyster shooter, showcasing fresh oysters with vodka & spiced tomato juice. Many thanks to the Supperclub team for having us here.
