I must say, I didn’t know much about Johor Bahru before coming here, but I must say I am so happy that I came. This is such a nice little city on the other side of Singapore. Makes me understand why Singaporeans come over here for a weekend get away and to grab some good food!
Hiap Joo Bakery, a spot that has been baking goods for over 100 years. They are most famous for their banana cake, but I have heard that they do a pretty darn good butter cake on Thursdays as well. Come early or be ready to wait! The banana cake has a great natural sweetness, while being light, and still a little moist. Best with coffee or tea.
Next up I went to Restoran Ya Wang Duck for their famous 10 Chinese herbal roasted duck. The duck had a great roast flavor, while tasting succulent and not too sweet. You will want to dig down into the gravy to experience the actual herbal taste. I found once everything was mixed together it made for a great balanced roast meat bite.
I headed to my second bakery of the day, this one famous for their chicken curry puffs. Typical me move, I ended up buying lots of things. Definitely for sure the chicken curry puff is the best, as the actual wrapper was more flavor packed as well as the filling.
Last up, IT Roo cafe, apparently home to one of the best chicken chops in all of Malaysia. Now, I will say it is a really good chicken chop, but it just really isn’t my kind of meal. However, if you would love something like this then this is a good place to get it!
Just a guy from Arkansas chasing his dreams of traveling the world, meeting amazing people, and trying all the delicious food I can find!
Recently finished working in Hong Kong. I am from a small farm in the states, I am now taking advantage and the opportunities I have to travel the world in search of some of the most delicious foods, unique places, and friendliest people.
A lover of street food, good laughs, and learning about other cultures. I hope to indulge in all these things and more as I bring you along with me on my epic journeys.
