The name Moxie comes from one of the first carbonated drink widely sold in the United States. Don't mistake it for 'moxy', as 'moxy' has a totally different meaning all together.
According to Urban Dictionary, Moxy means guts, or to put it crudely, 'balls'.
An example would be: He sure has a lot of moxy telling his boss to go F*ck himself.
Anyway, we were suppose to go to Flamenco but they were not open for lunch on a Sunday. So we settled for Moxie instead. Finding a parking is relatively easy on a weekend.
We started with a Caesar Salad to share.
Priced at RM18, the salad was ridiculously small. Taste wise, it was alright. Nothing really special about it. How special can a Caesar salad be right?
Cooked with lots of garlic and riped tomatoes, the pasta was the winner for the day. I would easily say that the pasta was the best main course we ordered. It was well flavoured, had a nice garlic taste accompanied by the flavour of the duck, just thinking about it makes me want to sink my teeth into something. Its freaking 9pm and I haven't had dinner, so you can't blame me. It was priced at RM38.
The burger was RM28. One could opt for the burger to come with Foie Gras and pay a lot more (I would certainly like to try that one day). The burger was quite ordinary. For better burgers, kindly head over to The Daily Grind.
The meat came off the bone very easily. It was soft and nice. The only complain I had was that the sauce was a little too overpowering. However, this dish tasted better than Tony Romas' beef ribs. It was priced at RM59.
Although Moxie pride themselves in only serving Australian beef, I have to say that the steak was a little tough. Australia beef doesn't mean tender beef. However, it was cooked to middle, which I requested for. Taste wise, it was above average. The dish was RM65. For a more accurate picture on differentiating beef, kindly read my article.
This cake sealed the deal. Inside was warm chocolate sauce that complimented the cream and ice cream. It certainly was one of the better desserts I've tasted in a while. It was priced at RM16.
Bananafee or better known as Banana and Toffee is as the name says. Kampungboycitygal highly recommended it. I have to say it was quite good. However, when compared to the chocolate lava cake, it didn't put up a very good fight. Maybe it was because I was in the mood for chocolate.
All in all, Moxie does a hell of a job in food presentation. Some of their dishes might not be exceedingly good (they were good), but their presentation and the friendly staffs sure did made up for it. Moxie can also create/customize a menu for a party of 10 people.
I certainly would be back to this place for try some of their other dishes. Until then.
Note: Sorry about the long absence. I've been crazily busy.
