The Big Mouth Cafe @ USJ 9, Subang Jaya

Having recently started in October 2010, The Big Mouth Cafe is a brand new cafe located in USJ9 Taipan, Subang Jaya. Gratefully, Kuan Hoong and I was invited by the owners for a lovely multi-course dinner treat (appetizer, soup, main course, dessert).

The Big Mouth Cafe offers a variety of Western dishes and delicious dessert treats, all under one roof. Small but cozy, this reclusive cafe is nicely decorated with strings of light bulbs and bright white walls.

Natural and healthy concoction juices for RM 5.50 per glass. We had the Skin Healthy (orange, cucumber and ginger) and the Anti Oxidant Healthy (mango, pear, carrot and apple). It was pretty alright actually since some of the concoctions can taste really awful.

Our meals started off with a selection of appetizers, one of it, the chicken Caesar salad (RM 7.60) with grilled chicken strips, fresh romaine lettuce, slices of cheese and crispy bread crouton in anchovy dressing. This bright salad was nice and stimulating with vivid flavors from the dressing. Since I had so many other Caesar salads recently, I personally prefer it with hard-boiled egg wedges and grated cheese.

Smoked salmon platter (RM 8.90), with olive oil dressing and accompanied with assorted salad. A classic and gorgeous looking entrée that I didn't expect from a cafe like this. For only RM 8.90, totally worth it!

Wonder duck (RM 15.60), smoked duck on fruit salad underlined with assorted salad. Yet another interesting salad dish I must say; but I find the fruit salad a little odd. The smoked duck was great nonetheless, smoky tender meatiness of the duck was utterly delicious!

Mushroom soup (RM 5.90), wild mushroom cream soup with crispy Milano bread. It was quite rich, hearty and tasty with the right consistency. Most of the cafe soups are not worth spending the money on but this was totally different! For only RM 5.90, it was definitely a steal!

Seafood chowder (RM 5.90), seafood cream soup with crispy Milano bread. Another worthy and invigorating cream soup with shrimps, scallops and clams in a light tangy tomato broth.

Lamb shank (RM 26.90), tender lamb shank bathed in demi-glaze sauce accompanied with vegetables and garlic bread. This delicious signature dish was absolutely tender and succulent with a robust herbal peppery sauce.

Black cod ratatouille (RM 29.50), tri-layers of seasoned pan fried black cod fish slathered with ratatouille tomato stew and served with sauteed pasta and vegetables. Well, the overpowering ratatouille stew was slightly too salty for my taste.

The Tandoor (RM 10.90), over-roasted chicken marinated in aromatic Indian spices and served with fragrant buttered rice and vegetables. The chicken was mouth-watering nice, juicy and full of flavors.

Impressive looking oxtail stew served in a bread bowl. It isn't available in their menu yet and we were the lucky few that were able to sample it first. It was deliciously rich in flavor with long hours of stewed beef cooked till moist and fork tender. Even though the bread bowl added that perfect touch to this hearty stew, it was a tad too hard and tough.

Lastly, dessert - the perfect sweet ending of a perfect meal and The Big Mouth Cafe's desserts were surely impressive! The chocolate volcano (RM 8.90), warm chocolate cake with erupted melting chocolate and served with a scoop of ice cream on top. It was rich and not overly sweet with warm fudgy indulgence oozing out that strikes a balance with the cold milky ice cream. After couple of spoons, it ended up with a messy sink-hole of chocolate fudge and melted ice cream. If only they served it the other way round out from the cup, it will be perfect!

Bread and butter pudding (RM 4.50), soft and buttery moist traditional English dessert served warm and complemented with a scoop of ice cream on top.

Apple streusel (RM 4.90), a classic German apple crumble dessert served with a scoop of ice cream on top. With an appealing streusel topping scattered and warm tender sweet apple bits throughout, it was one of our favorite!

Blueberry envelope (RM 6.50), deep fried blueberry pie encased in a buttery pastry served hot with a scoop of ice cream drizzled in sweet caramel sauce. The slight salted butter pastry added a delicate flavor to the sweet blueberry filling. Best of all, it was made fresh and served hot. Perfect!

Earl grey crème brûlée (RM 5.50), it was sweet and creamy with an even brittle layer of thick glassy caramelized sugar on the surface. The joy of the crème brûlée is the sensation of warm on top but cold on the bottom and the juxtaposition of the warm crisp sugar brûlée with the creamy cool custard.

The original vanilla mille crepe, a cake resembling a thousand layers of crepe stacked together whereby each layer of crepe is layered with fresh fragrant vanilla custard cream. When I had my first mille crepe cake few years back, it was love at first sight! I just adore the taste, and the texture; indeed a true labor of hand-layered love. I find it much more fragrance and less sweet compared to Food Foundry's mille crepe in PJ. It'll be a new addition with several other delectable flavors to their upcoming menu next month. At least now I don't have to drive south to Melaka to indulge and enjoy a slice of heaven!

We had lots of food and went home with a bigger tummy. Most importantly, will the servings be the same for every other paying customers and they told me yes! Since they have a centralized kitchen to handle the food preparation, outside catering and distribution, I hope it will not be much of a difference.

If you have eaten in The Big Mouth Cafe, share your thoughts and I'm sure owners would love to hear out any constructive feedbacks to help them improve further.

Verdict: The overall experience was great and the price was reasonable! The desserts were awesome and I really don't mind coming back for them.

    Maybe you can share with us what food you had and what was the problem? Most of the ones we had throughout the night was pretty good ;)

    Hmmm, I thought the crepe cake supposed to be new? They already start selling it already? Well, I find Food Foundry's one to be sweeter.

    My mom and I love the food there...we are staying in USJ3A. In fact their service staff is very nice as well. Although I have not tried their chocolate volcano but from your picture, it looks tempting... By the way, USJ Beng, I hope you could share your thoughts why you made such a remark...I can see most of my frens whom I recommended are very happy with the food and services there...

    I think instead of making such a general comments as USJ Beng, it would be best that he can enlighten all of us here what's his experience. As for most of the fair comments, you can visit

    The cappucino is tasteless, very blend. Volcano choclate & creme brulee, no stock. Blueberry envelope with no blueberry taste. But the pastry is warm & crisp. Overall, will not return. My visit time is as per comment time

    We went there today.
    The ambient was perfect, food was nice, price is not expensive too!
    However, the waitress service sucks. There were only 2 more other table besides us, but it took one of us more than 1 hour for the food to show up, eventually we have to cancel the order, due to waitress keep on saying excuses without any hospitality at all.
    Also, the menu is so confusing, and mistakes were made by the waitress. They never admit their mistakes, and even argue with us to tell us we did not order correctly.
    Besides, we ordered pizza, but until 1hour after waiting, only the waitress came out and told us their oven got some problem...we waited for 1 hour for nothing.. and one of us have to go back without any food being served..
    We so liked that place, but we swear we won't want to go there anymore because of their service.
    Sorry to leave such comment here, if you know that owner, please let him know what is happening here. Thank you!

    Certainly, we'll drop a message to the owners for them to take action. It's best if you know the name of the person in fault.
