Billed as a haven for lobster lovers & meat maniacs, here’s a cheerful little restaurant tucked in the Putra Heights township.

Helmed by a Friendly Young Couple

Moon’s Kitchen is helmed by friendly young couple Aizuddin & Atikah (Aizuddin’s one of three chefs in the kitchen; Atikah runs the front of the house). Its origins hail from a hawker stall that Aizuddin’s cousin, nicknamed ‘Moon’, started 18 years ago in Pandan Indah. Last year, the family finally chose to launch their first full-fledged eatery on this Putra Heights shop-house row.

Boston Lobster

Moon’s Kitchen takes plenty of pride in its Boston lobster (RM22.90 per 100 grams), prepared in one of three styles – Thermidor, or with garlic butter, or with four cheeses. It’ll steal the spotlight when presented on this eye-catching platter.

Rib Fans

Rib fans will have a field day here, especially folks who seek red meat; from the BBQ Wagon, choose either Aussie beef ribs braised with Mexican-inspired chipotle chilli sauce, flame-grilled for a smoky charred exterior (RM49.90, with chips & coleslaw)

… or lamb ribs, also from Down Under, glazed with a tangy mango chutney puree & black peppercorns, accompanied by corn, broccoli, roast tomatoes & mash (RM39.90). Moon’s Kitchen relies on rich marinades & robust sauces for its recipes, which will work for customers who are comfortable with a heavy touch for their meat.

Steaks

No lack of options for steaks either, which can be served as a sizzling sirloin in the time-honoured manner (RM24.90 for 200 grams with thick mushroom, black pepper or brown sauce) or a flame-grilled rib-eye flavoured with the likes of garlic & herbs.
