Moonlight-Cake-House-Seri-Alam-Johor

We met for dinner at the spanking new Moonlight Cake House outlet in Bandar Seri Alam in Masai, Johor (opened in Jun 2017).

Stepping into Moonlight's newest outlet, we were greeted by a pretty flower wall with Moonlight Cake House's familiar emblem - the JB homegrown brand now has 11 outlets in Johor and Kuala Lumpur.

Walking pass the flower wall, we were face to face with three beautiful cake chillers. As the brand name states, Moonlight Cake House started as a cake shop (in Taman Gaya in Johor Bahru).

Walking upstairs, there is a huge, bright dining hall. Beautiful hard wood flooring, sturdy tables and well padded chairs. The space is beautifully set up.

There is a large full length window wall on one side. During the day, light floods into the big space.

Moonlight Cake House have long gone beyond great cakes. They have put in a lot of effort in savoury dishes and drinks.

Anak Johor Chef Simon who just returned to his hometown after 6 years in Marriott Hotel in Singapore now runs Moonlight's kitchen in Seri Alam.

Seafood Risotto (price RM23.90++).

I love this risotto made with rice from Italy. I was delighted by the interesting feel to the bite - each grain is soft outside with a slightly crisp core. Served with thick tomato sauce, tiger prawn, mussel and garnished with shaved Parmesan cheese.

The crowd favourite - Salted Egg with Chicken Floss Fried Rice (price RM15.90++).

Must try.

Rice fried with salted egg yolk sauce served with fried chicken chop and chicken floss. The rice is fried to a slight nutty crisp, enveloped with a mild salted egg savoury sweetness with spicy accents (from chili). The chicken chop is tender and juicy. The sweet savoury chicken floss added sweetness to the dish.

Yammaey.

Stir Fried Ramen (price RM16.90++)

The fried noodles have nice "wok hei" - a subtle smokey taste and aroma from noodles seared in high heat.

We wrapped up our dinner with Moonlight's signature Musang King Durian Cake (price RM99++ for small).

It's a lot of cream blended with real mao shan wang durian. Very sweet. Interesting novelty, especially when durian is off season 😄

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)
