Le Moon's @ Jade Hills, Kajang

Le Moon's has risen over Kajang's gorgeous township of Jade Hills, radiating the sort of sunshiny cheer that's the hallmark of the Klang Valley's most pleasant cafes.

This three-story venue is beautiful, a real oasis where customers can linger, laugh & feel refreshed. Love the space.

Le Moon's is a family-owned restaurant, run primarily by former engineer Pey Pey, who shepherds a service team that's generous with smiles & graciousness. The kitchen is led by South African chef Steven Kruger (some might remember him from Romanza in Terrace At Hock Choon).

Splashes of creativity enliven Le Moon's recipes. The specialty breakfast wrap (RM19) is served 8am-11:30am; it's a bunch of beloved brunch components _ scrambled eggs, turkey bacon, mushrooms, tomatoes, caramelized onions & cheese _ swaddled in what tastes very much like roti canai.

Roasted pumpkin & sage soup, piping-hot with garlic-&-herb goat's cheese croquettes plopped in, accompanied by satisfyingly soft, fresh bread (RM18). These recipes can be heavier & creamier than expected, so it might be best to order them for sharing.

Always happy to have risotto (RM18): Le Moon's is a rich, flavorful one, heaped with pan-fried wild mushrooms (plus a mushroom-stuffed crispy tortellini), slow-roasted cherry tomatoes & those cheesy croquettes again. It's listed in the starters section, but it's really a main.

Grass-fed beef tenderloin (RM48), succulence that can be smoothly sliced, 180 grams crusted thickly with bone marrow, served with Anna potatoes (carbs cooked with lots of butter), veggies & rosemary jus.

There's only one dessert on the soft-opening menu; fortunately, it's a nice one. Crystallized almond parfait with choux pastry, apple sorbet & honeycomb coated with chocolate (RM15). Successfully complex in its ambition.

Le Moon's is also plenty proud of its pastries, hearty bricks for lusty appetites, including the French almond-studded bostock.

Coffee connoisseur alert! Le Moon's is hosting two "coffee masters" from Taiwan who'll "share their stories" here this weekend, specifically 11:30am-2pm, Saturday, January 11. Seats are limited, so call for reservations. Meanwhile, the cafe serves a very well-prepared latte, perfectly at drinking temperature too. It's illy.

Prefer something cooler? The iced chocolate might work for that. All in all, is Le Moon's worth what would be a long, winding drive to Kajang for KL's foodies? On a leisurely weekend, absolutely. Expect to hear & read much more about this place in 2014.

  2. Sean, I absolutely love the turquoise colour, I find it very soothing! The ambiance looks so nice, and the pumpkin soup and sage sounds amazing! It looks really good, too! I love sage, it is a comfort thing for me. Sometimes I broil chicken legs with sage on them, and they turn out so well! In fact, that is what I am having tonight for dinner, a chicken leg...roasted with sage and some grilled cabbage! :)

    1. Linda: oh yes, soothing's the perfect word for this place :) i like sage too, though its use was very subtle here. i'm thinking chicken roasted with sage would be an ideal dinner on a cold night, and i hope you enjoyed it! :)

  5. why the bone marrow looks like breadcrumbs ar? never knew marrow to be that color! :P

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Ciki: good observation! the typical recipe for a bone marrow crust is such that you have to mix diced bone marrow with brioche bread crumbs, then add thyme/parsley as well :)

  6. The decor of the place is really nice.. it actually makes me feel like it's not someplace in KL, more like somewhere in Australia.

  19. I had visited this place one month ago.
    The illy coffee was good....and my salmon sandwich was excellent, contrary to the usual smoked salmon which is way to salty.
    And the price is reasonable for this sort of western food, but definitely no kajang pricr as someone commented.
    The id of this place? Not to my liking....a bit girly in fantasy land....inside n out.
    Services were prompt when i was there....probably i was the only other customers.
    Next time i shall try the mushroom rissotto...one of my favourite italian dishes.
