Johor Bahru (JB) Eats 2015: A 2-day 1-Night Food Trail

Tuesday, 6 October 2015

[Johor Bahru] Last month, over one weekend, I visited Johor Bahru for an overnight stay! The checkpoint entry was crazy, had to wait for about an hour to enter the country, and by the time we got in, we were hungry! Here's to share with you some food we had over the past 2 days we were there. :)

LET'S EAT!

Rotiboy at JB Sentral
A delicious bread smell hits you once you cross the Singapore/Malaysian Border, on your walk towards City Square Mall (Johor Bahru, JB). The bread here is a must buy as it is so buttery and amazing to have, almost a reward for you after you've queued an hour or more to get across the border. Total yums, having one is just not enough.

Hui Lau Shan 許留山
The famous Hong Kong dessert shop in Malaysia is what I didn't expect to see, but it was packed with people when I arrived.

Ah Hua Kuey Teow 亚华果条
Being at Johor Bahru, you can't miss out on having good food. And even so, it's not difficult at all finding good food! We just walked into this random noodle eatery, Ah Hua Kuey Teow 亚华果条, for breakfast, and it wasn't a wrong choice.

Restoran Soon Soon Heng Bak Ku Teh (顺顺兴肉骨茶)
Just located on the same stretch as Ah Hua Kuey Teow 亚华果条, is the ever popular Soon Soon Heng Bak Ku Teh! This place is almost always filled with people, strolling in to have a taste of the Bak Ku Teh (literally 'Meat Bone Tea'), despite the hot weather.

Location: 43, Jalan Serigala Taman Abad 80250 Johor Bahru Johor, Malaysia (Just opposite KSL City Mall)

Doi Chaang Coffee
Situated in City Square Mall (JB), this cafe is a must-visit for coffee lovers, as it serves up its coffee using its single-estate, organic Arabica coffee, grown in Doi Chang Village, in Thailand, where it also originated.

Taang Shi Fu 汤师父
A place for people who are desperate to have some soups. They offer a wide variety of dishes and signature soups. However, the soups were sadly, not up to my standard.

Taste Better
This is one stop you must make if you love durians, and if you are in KSL mall. It is not only cheaper here, but worth every penny you spend. Get their durian puffs, I'm not crazy over their durian ice-cream, though.

Location: 33, Jalan Seladang, Taman Abad, Level 2-S12, 80250 Johor Bahru, Johor, Malaysia

OIC Oh! Ice Cream
Great for those who loves a dose of smoky magic as they hand over their ice-cream set to you, their signature set makes you go "Oh! Ice-cream!" as you view the dry-ice floating out from the pot that holds your ice-cream. Worthy of instagram, but I didn't find their ice-cream anything to go 'oh!' about.
