Moons Cafe Family Restaurant. Good Food Impian Emas Johor Bahru

Moons-Cafe-Family-Restaurant-Good-Food-Impian-Emas

Thanks to Puan Chong's recommendation, I came to know about Moons Cafe in Taman Impian Emas in Skudai. Moons Cafe is a warm, family run eatery popular with local residents of all communities but is a little under the social media radar so far.

Moons Cafe is in a spacious corner shop lot at Jalan Impian Emas 4. Bare bones decor, simple furnishing, cooled by ceiling fans, the space is airy, comfortable and clean.

Moons Cafe is truly a 3-generation family affair. The little cafe is headed by energetic Mdm Teo (right) and assisted by her daughter, son, daughter-in-law and grandchildren. Moons Cafe was established in 2000, and is Impian Emas' best kept good food secret.

Friendly Mdm Teo grew up in a Nyonya family and have always been passionate about cooking. Now, she passes her infectious passion to her children and grandchildren.

Moons Cafe's extensive menu ranges from local delights like nasi lemak and lontong, pork free Chinese classics like fried noodles and rice, and Western favourites like steaks, burgers and pastas. They also have traditional hand made Teochew and Nyonya kueh. I enjoyed the food we had today - they were delicious, portions are generous and prices are competitive.

Curry Mutton with rice. Made in-house from scratch with spices, lemongrass, potatoes and lots of onions etc, the curry is aromatic, mildly spicy and sweet. The curry is a little greasy with chili oil. The tender mutton has a slight gaminess which I like. Perfect with simple boiled white rice.

Chicken Satay.

The satay made with chicken breast had no fat or skin. The meat was well marinated with mild spices and grilled to a slight char outside. I like the sweet and nutty peanut sauce with mild spices.

Moons Cafe serves a range of traditional Teochew and Nyonya kueh. The soft skin and tasty fillings are all hand made in-house by Mdm Teo and family. Moons Cafe makes very good Teochew and Nyonya kueh.

I am told that Moons Cafe is very popular for their breakfast nasi lemak and lontong which I will come for next time 😃

  1. Indeed this is a good place for family or friends to go for food or gathering. The friendly folks there make you feel like their friends not just customers. ( Pn Chong)

I firmly believe that taste is subjective and so, warmly welcome differing viewpoints :-D But, I disapprove negative comments that are anonymous or hide behind fake identities. I feel that that is unethical in the same way as speaking ill of others behind their backs. I look forward to all your comments :-D Thank you. (Date: 18 Dec 2015)
