There are two things that pretty much sum up about Cameron Highlands; strawberry and tea. Let it be farms, plantations, shops, restaurants or cafes, these two are to be found in every nook and corner in Cameron Highlands.
We stumbled upon this cafe when we were on our way to a strawberry farm in Brinchang. It was accidental discovery but with the bright red signboard and the name of the cafe; Strawberry Moment, it’s hard to miss this cafe. Besides, we thought we could do some strawberry desserts since we hardly had any (if not none) throughout our stay in Cameron Highlands.
It was close to late noon when we were there and yet, it was packed to the brim that we had to sit outside. Not that we were complaining since it was cooling weather we could enjoy while dining. The menu was pretty extensive with mostly filled by desserts. There were, of course, drinks and main meals such as salads and sandwiches for those who want to fill up their tummy.
Apart from the menu, some of the desserts were displayed in display counter fridge. That’s where (and/or how) we ordered the Strawberry Strudel and Strawberry Cheese Cake. The service was pretty jiff as we didn’t wait long for our desserts to arrive. Perhaps, most of the tables were already being served.
The Strawberry Strudel (RM7.50 per slice) was pretty alright. The pastry was light yet flaky – giving a crackling sound when it’s being cut through. The cream was spread evenly and generously on every layer while fresh sliced strawberries were arranged neatly exposing slightly to give it an irresistible look.
We liked the Strawberry Cheese Cake as well. I couldn’t recall the exact price of it but if my memory serves me right, it should linger around RM9 per slice. Tartness and thickness of the cheese were just right while the base was slightly thicker than the usual cheesecake we normally get from bakery. Nevertheless, they blended well with the fresh strawberries which were piled on top as the fruit gave it the much needed sour note to the rich sinful dessert.
However, with both desserts being decent, their Fresh Strawberry Milkshake (RM10.90) didn’t really make the cut. It wasn’t as rich and thick as how a milkshake should be while there was a faint of strawberry taste in it. Somehow, it wasn’t fulfilling / satisfying nor did it give the guilty effect… if you know what I mean.
We returned again on the following day since we were killing time before heading back to KL. The cafe was empty when we stepped in but soon after, customers started to flow in. For this round, we opted for something lighter / simpler.
Although Strawberry Crepe (RM12.90) may sound as simple / light as one could imagine, it came in a rather huge portion with two big scoops of vanilla ice cream hidden underneath the adequately thin crepe. Taste wise, there was nothing to shout about although the mixture of the icy cold ice cream with the tangy strawberry worked hand-in-hand together.
Though the Chocoberry (RM13.90 for 6 pieces) looked too beautiful to be devoured, there’s nothing special about it. And in all honesty, they were quite pricey as they were just strawberries dipped in chocolate giving it a sweet-sour pleasure. And that’s just it!
There were hits and misses but overall, Strawberry Moment is a rather decent cafe. Its nice quiet ambiance coupled with cooling weather makes it a pleasant place to enjoy your dessert with a cup of tea in hand.
