Niu Taste at St Mary Residences: Restaurant Review
This is one beautiful restaurant, especially after sunset, filled with crackerjack flourishes that benefit from shadowy lighting.
Niu Taste, opened at St Mary Place this past month by the team behind Black Market, calls itself a noodle & grill bar, specializing in Vietnamese, Taiwanese & Japanese recipes. No pork is served here.
Taiwanese Red-braised Beef Noodles
The high-profile choices on the menu: Niu Taste’s take on Taiwanese red-braised beef noodles …
Vietnamese Pho Bo
… plus ‘pho bo,’ Vietnamese flat rice noodles with beef balls, tenderloin, shank, tendon & stomach.
Each hearty serving with everything thrown in costs RM28+. Could be punchier in flavor though.
Prefer porridge? Niu Taste has a fish-flooded version of that too, mixed with tiger grouper meat, stomach & liver that might be an acquired taste (RM28+).
Lamb Loin Saddle
For plain protein, the tender-tasty lamb loin saddle with garlic mustard provides pure pleasure. RM16+ for two slices.
Unagi Liver Teriyaki
Eel liver? Yep, find it here: Skewers of grilled unagi liver teriyaki (RM18+). A very interesting option, slightly more concentrated in flavor than eel flesh.
Century Egg with Tofu
Century egg with tofu (RM8). Elegant simplicity.
Sake, wine, whisky & beer are all available.
