Lemon Tree Restaurant @ Taman Melodies

Hi Everyone! How’s your weekend?

I had a splendid weekend preparing for an upcoming passion project  which I will share more in my next post *wink*

Before Chinese New Year, I was invited by Kim to a dinner at Lemon Tree Restaurant located at Taman Melodies.

LT2And despite it’s humble look, this restaurant serves delicious food with a cozy ambient.

IMG_5763cMixed Fruit Salad @RM5.50 This combination of fruits is very different from other fruit salads that I have tasted before. It has got orange, cherry tomato, cucumber, green apple, watermelon and carrot! And together with its special salad dressing, this salad is definitely full of surprise.

IMG_5754cHomemade Cream Of Mushroom @RM5.50 It’s always good to start a meal with a bowl of warm soup. Blended with 5 types of fresh mushrooms with a dash of cream and sprinkled with crispy croutons and spring onion… Simply devine.

IMG_5755cTuna Bruchetta Cheese Bread @RM6.80 This is a tricky dish. You have to open your mouth wide and bite the cherry tomato, cucumber, baked cheese, tuna spread and bruchetta bread TOGETHER, to experience the flavourful taste and texture of this beautifully presented appetizer.

IMG_5759cIsland Seafood Pizza @RM19.80 American-style pizza with thicker crust and tasty Mozzarella cheese. Crispy and chewy at the same time 🙂

IMG_5770cSpaghetti Seafood Alio-Olio @RM 12.80 When this dish being served, the intense garlic aroma flows across the table. An improvised version with lots of seafood and giant prawns~

Rib Eye Steak @RM49.00 Flown in from New Zealand, medium rare. It was rested a while after grilled to retain the juiciness.

Very flavourful with a perfect thickness.

Tiramisu When everyone is busy taking pictures, I just couldn’t wait to dig into it. Mascarpone cheese and Kahlua-soaked lady fingers. Elegant and delicious as always.

Crème Brûlée I am a big fan of Crème Brûlée. To me, there are 2 vital points about it:

1) Well torched, crispy flavourful sugar crust

2) Smooth creamy custard cream with REAL vanilla bean

I was actually supposed to share this dessert with others, but I was too indulged in the Crème brûlée heaven, and I think I ate more than half of it 😀

*sorry girls*

Dark Chocolate Lava Cake Honestly, I don’t quite enjoy bitterness. I love sweet and milky stuff. Therefore, when this chocolat noir was presented, I don’t see it as fanciful as the others. Therefore, I just scooped a little bit of it and eat with the vanilla ice cream. And that was the moment it strucked me. It’s the COMBINATION! In order not to make it taste too sweet and lost the aroma of cocoa, the brilliant chef used dark chocolate to make the cake and pair it with vanilla ice cream. So it is sort of like a mixture of bitter vs sweet and hot vs cold. I might sound exaggerated, but It’s mind-blowing!

After the dinner, we got the chance to listen to the stories of Lemon Tree restaurant from the founder himself. The man behind all these delicious dishes – Mr. Jeffery Bong, is a really humble and creative guy. From presentation to the taste of each course, I can see the true passion of this bubbly chef through his way of preparing and cooking. Now, with the assistance of his equally talented brother, Lemon Tree is branching out to provide catering service, custom-made menu delivered to your doorway and a newly renovated private function room to host a party for 20-30 guests.      

So, if you are planning for a private party, this might be the right place for you.
