This cafe has a Total New Concept and the First in Johor Bahru! The unique way is, you choose what you want in the Cafe, and the Friendly Chef - Ms Candy will cook it for you. Another option is...she will teach you all the recipe that you be able to cook it yourself at home.

Ms Candy said, they provide the imported 'Good Quality' of beef, lamb, salmon, scallop and many more. Beefs are imported from Australia and you can have a chance to taste the Best Aussie Wagyu and Angus here, even the Aussie Prime Angus! Beside the good quality meat, the ingredients they use are also imported. That's mean you can have a chance to taste the Best of it! This is also the First Cafe in Johor Bahru which serve this type of quality western cuisine!
Another good point I like to emphasize is, all the cuisines that serve on table are cook without preservative, without seasoning, organic vegetables and 'Original'. You have to cook it this way especially for the Good beef. Another First in Johor Bahru.
The owner do sell and supply the imported raw (uncook) beef, lamb, salmon & scallop to their customers and hotels, that's the reason you can see the freezers and chillers beside the dining area.
We tried out their Aussie Rib-eyes with the original taste for the first dish...
The Aussie Rib-eyes
Medium doneness was served for the rib-eyes, and it tasted Excellent! The rib-eyes was cooked perfectly with pepper, salt and rosemary...without marinated and seasoning. It provided the original taste of the Good Aussie Rib-eyes! My First time having the Rib-eye steak with the original taste! Marvellous!
The cuisine served with US imported (Lamb Weston) french fries without salt also had the original taste of "French Fries", unlike the one we always have it at McDonald. The salads was from all organic fresh vegetables!
Aussie Rib-eyes was served with medium doneness
The second dish was the Hokkaido Scallop, served with Premium Grade Green Coral and On Vine Tomato.
The size was much more bigger and thinker compare with the local scallop. This 3 pieces of scallops will be enough for a regular eater.
The scallops were grilled on the surface which gave a nice aroma on the first bite (if I'm not mistaken, it grilled with some butter), and it was juicy inside. Delicious!
The third dish was the good quality Spaghetti Aglio e Olio. Simple and Nice! Served with olive oil and fine chopped parsley without the dried red chili flakes, I prefer without the chili flakes cos I can smell the olive oil nicely...it was original again! It's difficult to have this type of nice spaghetti around Johor Bahru area beside Gourmet Classroom.
Another thumb up dish in the restaurant!
After the meal, Ms Candy let us tried the imported French Macaron as dessert....oh! Very good! Soft and moist! Unliike the local Macaron which is abit hard and dry...Fantastic!
The imported Yoplait Yogurt was the last we had that evening...this is also one of their product which sell directly to customer. If you are the Yoplait Yogurt lover, you can easily get it from the restaurant right now!
We had long chat with Mr Timothy and Ms Candy after the meals. Ms Candy, who worked and gained experience on western cuisine in Italy many years ago, we admired her cooking skill very much!
Please try out the Western Cuisine from Gourmet Classroom Cafe especially those Beef lover, they have all kind of Good quality beef start from Sirloin to Prime Angus. I believe you will surprise with the meals and feel the different compare with other Western Cuisine Restaurant around Johor Bahru, different experience!
For me, I will definitely back for thier Wagyu and Angus Beef!
