Gold Moon (Invited)

Friday, April 28, 2017 Sharon Halim 2 Comments

Gold Moon is merely 3 months old, located in Brighton. Just a couple minutes walk from middle Brighton station with two entrance from Well St or Dendy Plaza. The interior of the restaurant is stunning. It has a sleek modern theme down to the smallest detail such as dim lighting, soft music, candles, open bar, row of bamboo, dark wooden panelling, gold accents on the cutlery and elephants statue. The first floor is mainly open to public for walk ins and small group reservations but the second floor divided into two area; private room for 10 people or the whole floor for functions.

When I arrived, I thought to my self the place is perfect for date but also quite family night out. Well suited in Brighton area where there's a gap market for Asian fine dining. It sits on the secluded area even though close to the main st. It felt private, elegant and luxurious. Plus I heard the chef is ex Flower Drum. They stand for authentic traditional Chinese cuisines.

Winter Melon Soup. This is a traditional Chinese vegetable hearty soup served in the melon it self, combined with prawns, scallops, mushrooms and chicken broth. The presentation was lovely and entertaining.

Assorted Mixed Dim Sims ($8.8/3pcs). Xia Long Bao, Siu Mai and Hakau, three most famous dim sims. All of them are house made from scratch and my husband really like the xia long bao with a strong ginger taste on the broth.

Roasted Peking Duck ($12/2pcs). Unlike in the other Chinese restaurant, peking duck at Gold Moon is cut and well prepared on the kitchen rather than the customer do it them self on the table. The flavour was nice.

Grilled Wagyu Beef with Wasabi with Black Pepper Sauce ($38). Comes in a very thin cut with a beautiful pink medium rare as well as delicious black pepper sauce. This was one of the best dish of the night and I wouldn't mind coming back for this

Butter Garlic Prawns ($36.8). This was also one of the favourite of the night, super succulent prawn and creamy butter garlic prawns. I, my self loves the prawn but I would like sauce to be thinner and fresher so the prawn will be the star of the dish.

Grilled Scallops with Foie Gras ($48). My favourite dish of the night and possibly my favourite scallop dish at all of the Chinese restaurant in Melbourne. Huge fresh scallop, cooked perfectly with rich, creamy and generous foie grass sauce. Love every bit of it.

Fried Rice with Seafood and Black Truffle ($29). My mom loves this fried rice a lot, white fried rice with garlic and lots of black truffle. It's a nice ending before the dessert and it's certainly fulfil our belly very quickly.  

We are basically comatose by this point but we can not end without a dessert! Assorted Desserts; Coconut Pudding, Red Bean Ice Cream and Cantonese Mango Pancake with Cream. It's always nice to have more than one type of dessert since I'm such a sweet tooth. The red bean ice cream was nice as well as the coconut pudding but the skin on the mango pancake could be a lil bit more moist.

All of the food was treated with respect to allow the fresh produce to shine through and not overwhelm by complicated techniques or spices. They also offer a weekend all you can eat yum cha at $20 which is very cheap since all the dim sims are made in house. I will definitely be back to try the yum cha session.
