Lemon Tree @ Taman Melodies

位于Taman Melodies (KSL 和 Holiday Plaza 附近)的Lemon Tree 已有11年的歷史。一家餐廳能夠在新山區屹立11年之久,Lemon Tree肯定有他的過人之處。
Located in Taman Melodies near KSL City and Holiday Plaza, Lemon Tree Restaurant has been running its business for 11 years. Being able to operate for such a decade in Johor Bahru area, I believe that Lemon Tree Restaurant must have its own speciality. 

簡單舒適的裝潢,仿佛在告訴你,Lemon Tree賣的,就是廚師的手藝。
Simple, warm and comfortable furnishings in Lemon Tree Restaurant. 


有機會來到Lemon Tree用餐的朋友,千萬不要只顧著低頭享受美食,記得擡起頭來欣賞墻上的照片哦!可都是老闆的收藏啊~
If you happen to dine in Lemon Tree Restaurant, don't forget to have a look at the photos on the wall. They are all collections of Mr. Bong, the owner of Lemon Tree Restaurant.

Lemon Tree 餐廳劃分為兩個格局,一邊為全天候開放的用餐空間,另一邊則是專門用來舉辦私人宴會和聚餐。之前比較明亮的部分就是用餐空間,而上圖則是新開闢的私人聚餐空間。
Lemon Tree Restaurant has just expanded its business that it also provides catering services now. The restaurant is divided into two areas, one for public dine in and another one for private function and catering purpose. Public dine in area is brighter as shown in the first 4 photos in this post, while the private area is more modern and romantic as shown in the photo above.



今晚我們在新的私人聚會空間用餐。舒服溫馨,非常適合家庭派對和公司聚餐。
We had our dinner in the newly furnished private area. Very cozy and comfortable I gotta say.

Honey Lemon 
RM 5.50

卡布奇諾奶昔
Cappuccino Milk Shake
RM 8

芒果奶昔
Mango Milk Shake
RM8

這杯飲料真的太令我驚艷了!會點這杯飲料是因爲我很喜歡吃芒果,而這杯芒果奶昔真的沒讓我失望!常常會喝到充滿香精味的果汁飲料(Oh No 災難啊~),但這杯芒果奶昔卻滿是濃濃的芒果果香!味道非常天然不做作,甜度也剛剛好。如圖所見,奶昔做的非常綿密細滑,讓人有在吃冰淇淋的錯覺~下次回來我一定會再點的!
This mango milk shake amazed me so much!! I didn't have much expectation on it because I'm getting used that restaurants/shops always serve ordinary fruit juices/any fruits-related drinks that we can  easily get from supermarkets, you know, those juices which claim to be fresh and natural yet taste artificial. So I was really surprised with this Mango Milk Shake! Ridiculously fresh and mango-ish! And the milk shake was perfectly prepared and came with a real smooth texture, as smooth as ice-cream! 

自製蘑菇湯
Homemade Cream of Mushroom
RM 5.50

由5种蘑菇煮成的蘑菇湯,光看賣相就可以感受到店家的用心。
喝著溫暖的蘑菇湯時還能嘗到分明的蘑菇顆粒,是我個人喜歡的口感。
Great presentation for a mushroom soup. Homemade mushroom soup never fails to catch my attention, so as the homemade cream of mushroom from Lemon Tree Restaurant! Being made from 5 different types of mushroom, this soup tasted so natural and heart-warming. Besides, I can taste bites of mushroom in the soup and I really love it! 

Tuna Bruchetta Cheese Bread 
RM 6.80



這開胃菜也太稱職了!鬆脆的法國麵包上鋪上了厚厚的Tuna,用Cheese裹上后再送入烤爐,最後再配上清爽的黃瓜和小番茄,這樣的組合真的很容易讓人胃口大開呀!

I love the appetizer here! A very competent appetizer, it really did its job as an appetizer since I was craving for more after having one slice of this yummy bruchetta! Thin slice of crunchy baguette was covered with thick layer of tuna and the baguette slice was wrapped under cheese before they were sent into the oven. Lastly, slices of cucumber and baby tomato did some magic to this appetizer, they made the bruchetta so refreshing and healthy!

熱帶夏威夷Pizza
Tropical Hawaiian Pizza
RM 17.80

看到沒有!!牽絲的Cheese啊~~~ 哦我快暈了!這個畫面也太美好了吧?!看了就很想吃啊!其實我本來就很喜歡餐廳自家做的Pizza,新鮮的Toppings 是其他Pizza連鎖店無法媲美的啊!(絕對沒有抨擊連鎖店的意思,但餐廳的Pizza好像都比較好吃耶~)
Look at the CHEESE!!!! OMG I want to eat this so badly now! I must say that restaurant's homemade pizza is forever far better than those made by pizza franchise stores! No offense to pizza franchise stores, it's just my own preference.

海鮮Pizza
Island Seafood Pizza
RM 19.80

我非常非常喜歡這Pizza!公主並不是第一次嘗到海鮮Pizza,(連鎖店的吃了不少,哈哈!)但卻是第一次嘗到那麽“有海鮮味”的海鮮Pizza!裏面放了充滿海洋氣息的蝦和Sotong,絕對會讓你對“海鮮Pizza”這四個字重新定義!新鮮,原來真的那麽重要啊~
This is not my first try on seafood pizza, but definitely my first try on such fresh and authentic seafood pizza! You know, most of the pizza franchise stores claim that pizza topped with cheap crabsticks is seafood pizza and fool the customers like they don't know what is meant by seafood. Island Seafood Pizza from Lemon Tree Restaurant is topped with fresh prawns and sotong, perfect for seafood lover like me! I have confidence that you will be surprised by this Island Seafood Pizza! 

水果沙拉
Mix Fruit Salad
RM 5.50

大家在嘗了第一口之後都對店家特調的沙拉醬讚不絕口!有別于一般常見的濃厚沙拉醬,Lemon Tree Restaurant 的沙拉醬比較稀薄,而且帶著特殊的果酸味。一問之下才得知原來這裡的沙拉醬是大廚獨家秘方特調,只此一家哦!微酸的沙拉醬配上新鮮的水果蔬菜,清爽的感覺真的讓我忍不住想要向大廚討教沙拉醬的調配秘方,想要在家裏自己做哈哈哈!(發夢啦你!)
How to make your salad stands out from the rest? The key point will definitely be the salad dressing. In contrast to the thick dressing that is commonly found in most of the restaurants, the salad dressing here is more diluted. This special dressing is actually a secret recipe of Chef Bong. The dressing is so special that it gives you a hint of fruity sourness at the end of chewing! I have to say that Chef Bong in Lemon Tree Restaurant is so talented! 

紐西蘭肋眼牛扒
New Zealand Air Flown Rib Eye Steak
RM 49



紐西蘭肋眼牛扒簡直就是餐桌上的亮點!180克的肋眼牛扒在烤至7分熟后居然還能夠保持這樣的柔軟度,神奇!多汁軟嫩的牛扒配上胡椒醬后更加好吃,味道變得更豐富、有層次~
Being grilled to medium well done (70%), this 180gm steak is so tender, succulent and juicy! When eating together with the black pepper sauce that was served along, the steak became so flavorsome! Basically, I'm 
not a steak person but this steak did impress me!

夏威夷火腿番茄醬意大利面
Spaghetti Hawaiian
RM8.80

什麽?!RM8.80 的意大利面?!這是真的嗎?!天啊啊啊啊啊啊這也太便宜了吧!快瘋了!新山哪裏可以找得到如此便宜的意大利面啊?! 重點是雖然便宜但不廉價哦!店家依然放足了材料,沒在欺場的!
What?! Spaghetti at RM 8.80?! Are you kidding me?! Where to find such cheap spaghetti in JB area OMG! Despite having an unbelievable low selling price of RM 8.80, this dish comes with scrumptious amount of ham slices, great deal indeed!

海鮮蒜米橄欖油意大利面
Spaghetti Seafood Alio-Olio
RM 12.80

價錢依然讓人吃驚的低廉!對于Lemon Tree 的海鮮料理,我只能說無可挑剔。海鮮,只要夠新鮮就會好吃呵呵~非常喜歡滲透到意大利面裏的蒜米香氣,不太濃烈,卻讓整道食物更加美味。
Again, the price is amazingly cheap! I have to say that dishes with seafood in Lemon Tree Restaurant are flawless. The reason is very simple and basic, because the seafood served here is really fresh! Well I'm sure that most of restaurants knows how important the freshness of seafood is but then again, how many of them is able to serve fresh seafood? I like how the garlic taste is infused seamlessly with the spaghetti, it just made this dish extra fragrant and delicious.

特色炒飯
Special Fried Rice
RM 13.80

据老闆Mr.Bong 所說,這道菜色是由一位顧客所發明的,這位忠心的顧客每星期都會上門光顧至少三次,每次來都一定會點這道組合奇特的特色炒飯~一個星期吃三次?難道不會膩嗎?我吃了這道菜,才深深明白怎麽會有顧客風雨不改地周吃三次!小時候我曾經吃過天上有地上無的炒飯,我記一直都得那炒飯味道。這次吃了Lemon Tree的炒飯,竟然吃出類似的美味!雖然味道仍然比不上我心中的第一名,但有機會再次吃到那麽棒的炒飯還是覺得很開心~炒飯粒粒分明,而且我最喜歡的部分是裏面還加了蔥哦!青蔥絕對是讓炒飯升華的重要角色啊!(突然想起鼎泰豐的排骨炒飯也是一級棒的!哎喲下次再另寫一篇,專説炒飯的好了呵呵~)炒飯本身就已經是一大賣點了,再配上旁邊的起司火腿、太陽蛋和炸雞翅膀更是讓人胃口大開!其實很想嘗嘗炸雞的,但由於是雞翅膀那就算了吧~ 
According to the restaurant owner, Mr. Bong, this Special Fried Rice was invented by a creative customer. This loyal customer loves this dish so much that he will order this dish at least 3 times in a week. When Mr. Bong told me this story I was like "Wouldn't it be very boring to have the same dish 3 days in a week?" However, when I tried this dish out, I finally understood why would a customer can be so loyal to one dish, because it's just so nice! For your information, I once had a superb and divinely yummy fried rice when I was younger, like 7-8 years ago. The fried rice is so delicious that I could never forget its taste! While eating this special fried rice, it somehow reminded me of that long-lost-yummy-fried-rice! Honestly speaking, the special fried rice from Lemon Tree is still unable to defeat my childhood-No 1-fried rice in my fried rice ranking. Nevertheless, I'm happy enough to be able to find such good fried rice in Johor Bahru. I like the moisture level of the fried rice, neither too moist nor too dry, in short it's just perfect. Also, onion springs were added into the fried rice, the magic ingredient which makes the fried rice to be extraordinary fragrant! I have to say that the portion of fried rice is really huge! Coming with fried chicken, sun-tanned egg, salad and cheese ham, this dish is definitely your best choice for lunch and dinner! 

Tiramisu

甜品時間!這道提拉米蘇讓現場的女生都陷入瘋狂!不是普通的好吃哦!對公主來説,這應該是我目前爲止吃過最棒的Tiramisu了~中間的Cheese奶油非常濃郁,但濃郁得來卻不會讓人覺得油膩有負擔。吃了幾口之後我不但沒有膩的感覺,相反地越吃越好吃,好想就這樣不停地吃下去啊~(所以你現在是要肥死嗎?)看到中間的手指餅乾了嗎?非常正宗的Tiramisu哦!
Oh gosh this dessert drove the girls to insane! This is heavenly tasty! I would rate it as the best Tiramisu I ever tasted in my entire life! Look at the cream cheese! It's very cheesy, yet it doesn't give you the disgusting oily taste. I had couples spoonful of it and I wasn't got sick with the cream cheese! Instead, I wanted for more of it. Spot the finger biscuit within the cream cheese? An authentic tiramisu indeed.

布蕾
Creme Brulee

我本身就是布蕾愛好者,所以這道甜品我當然很喜歡咯!
I'm a huge fan of creme brulee so needless to say, I love this dessert!

巧克力熔岩蛋糕
Chocolate Lava Cake

吃過VIVO Pizza的熔岩蛋糕之後我就深深地愛上熔岩蛋糕了!Lemon Tree的巧克力熔岩蛋糕是更高杆的升級版~它的厲害之處在于那由70%純黑巧克力所做成的巧克力熔岩!通常別家的Lava Cake在切開之後都會有大量的巧克力緩緩流出,但Lemon Tree的Lava Cake卻沒有哦!而其中的原因就是那高濃度的黑巧克力,造成巧克力内餡濃度過高,不易流出。蛋糕的外面部分被烤得香脆,而裏面則滿滿都是香醇的黑巧克力。熱乎乎的巧克力蛋糕,配上冰涼的香草冰淇淋,啊啊啊~簡直就是大大的滿足啊!還記得之前我有提過VIVO Pizza的Lava Cake甜膩得讓我無法吃完整個蛋糕嗎?Lemon Tree的Lava Cake卻沒有這樣的甜膩感哦~整個蛋糕雖然香濃卻不會太甜,非常好吃!
Remember how I fell in love with chocolate Lave cake after my first try at Vivo Pizza? Lemon Tree Restaurant serves the upgraded version of chocolate lava cake! This is because the lava inside the cake is made from dark chocolate of a very high purity of 70%! Normally for most of the lava cakes, chocolate will ooze out when the cake is cut. However, when this chocolate lava cake was being cut, I can't see any chocolate oozing out. You must be curious on why is this happening right? This is all because of the high viscosity of the extremely high purity of dark chocolate inside! So don't be surprised if you don't see the oozing chocolate when you order this dessert. The outer layer of the cake was baked to crunchy state while the center remained in its fluid state. The warm chocolate cake made a perfect combination with the icy cold vanilla ice-cream. The best part in this dessert is that its sweetness is just right, or I should say it's perfect to my own preference ^^

In brief, I'm really impressed with all the delicious food in Lemon Tree Restaurant and I truly believe that the chefs behind the scenes have put in many efforts in preparing these yummy and wonderful delicacies. I was overjoyed when Mr. Bong told me that Lemon Tree starts to provide catering services. Just imagine that fine western cuisine such as canapes, tapas, ham and cheese chicken chop are being served to your guests in your birthday/wedding/house warming parties, I'm sure that all the guests will definitely be impressed! You can have a private party at Lemon Tree in the private space as I mentioned before, or you can have Lemon Tree catering service with you in your home or office! There are many different catering menu according to customers' needs and budget, starting from RM20 per head. If you're interested in their catering service, you can always contact them via Facebook or call them at 07-335 5688.
