Taman Negara Malaysia's National Forest Reserve JK1493

Taman-Negara-Malaysia-National-Forest-Reserve

All these years, I've read and heard a lot about Taman Negara (Malaysia's National Rainforest Resrve) but have yet to have the opportunity to visit it. So, I was so glad to receive an invitation from Tourism Malaysia to visit Taman Negara as part of their eco-tourism programme.

Penang Char Kway Teow at Leong Seng Huat Perling Johor JK1491

Penang-Char-Kway-Teow-Leong-Seng-Huat-Perling-Johor

There are many regional variations of the well loved fried rice noodle dish, char kway teow. Of all the regional varieties, the Penang style seems to be the best travelled - it is found all over Malaysia, Singapore and even around the world. In Johor Bahru, one of the most popular Penang char kway teow stalls is at Leong Seng Huat 两成发 coffee shop in Taman Perling.

Kulai Mok Chai Hainanese Beef Noodle for Real Beefy Goodness 莫才牛肉粉.猪肉面 JK1490

Mok-Chai-Hainanese-Beef-Noodle-莫才牛肉粉.猪肉面

I am a big fan of Hainanese style beef noodles - the type with the gooey beefy brown sauce. When I was a child labourer working at construction sites during my lower secondary school holidays, I used to gladly splurge half my daily wage on a good bowl of beef noodles near my work site. I am so glad that I could still enjoy this traditional Hainanese classic at Mok Chai 莫才 in Kulai.

JB EH HE Art Cafe Singapore Hokkien Mee Noodle JK1489

JB-EHHE-Art-Cafe-Singapore-Hokkien-Mee-Noodle

Singapore style Hokkien mee is a delicious iconic dish that is very hard to find a good version outside of the sunny island. For whatever reason, Singapore Hokkien mee outside of the Lion City somehow just cannot make it. Imagine, finding a good SG Hokkien mee, and one that does not use pork and lard in JB. Now, that's exciting.

Visited the fish soup stall at Jalan Kebun Teh Lama today. This was one of the first places I blogged about in Johor Kaki (in Jan 2012, the first month of JK). 

榕树下果条 (成发). 汤头够味. 鱼肉新鲜又甜. 酱油够香. 好吃. 价格公道. 环境特别. 不妨试试.

Yew Swee Laksa and Lor Mee - Johor Folks Favourites 友水叻沙 JK1487

Yew-Swee-Laksa-Lor-Mee--友水叻沙

Yew Swee 友水 is one of those nondescript eateries found all over Malaysia which one would hardly notice when driving by. But, local folks know that this plain Jane of shops serves one of the best curry laksa noodle in JB, and today I found out, one of the best lor mee 鹵麵 as well.


Uniquely Johor Mawar Pisang Goreng Sambal Kicap JK1486

Johor-Mawar-Pisang-Goreng-Sambal-Kicap

This is a common street food in Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia but there is something unique about pisang groeng (fried banana fritters) in Johor which you must try :-D

Sunroast Roast Chicken Char Siew in Yong Peng Johor 宏达烧腊 JK1485

Sunroast-Roast-Chicken-Char-Siew-Yong-Peng-宏达烧腊

Little Yong Peng town is the perfect pit stop for the three hour plus drive between KL and JB. Yong Peng town is about mid point between KL and JB, and the main street is located just off the North-South Expressway - there is no need to drive another 30-45 minutes to town (as is the case with Kluang, Segamat, Batu Pahat or Muar).

Best Char Siew Wanton Noodle in Kulai, and some say Johor? 新珍记云吞面 JK1483

Char-Siew-Wanton-Noodle-Kulai-Johor-新珍记云吞面

My friend Puan Chong brought us here at 新珍记云吞面 in Kulai, her family's favourite wanton noodle shop. 新珍记's claim to fame is their signature "crystal" char siew or roast pork belly.

柔佛古来, 新珍记云吞面的玻璃叉烧, 肥瘦参半. 咬在嘴里, 软软的, 又甜又香. 跟全蛋一起吃, 好好吃的云吞面.
