Best JB Wantan Mee Noodle List. Yap Wan Tan Mee 大马小贩中心.葉记云吞面 ⭐⭐⭐⭐



So, after durians right... we adjourned to the old Sri Tebrau Market & Hawker Centre 大马小贩中心 for one of my favourite wanton noodles at Yap Wan Tan Mee at stall #65. Oh.. man... I have not eaten Yap's wanton mee for 4 years and I must say this is the most improved wanton mee in JB. Yap Wan Tan Mee has gone from very good to one of the very best.

Ipoh Kway Teow Soup @ Old Eight in One in Johor Jaya JB 八合一美食中心唐記雞絲河粉 ⭐⭐⭐⭐



After an unsuccessful food hunt this morning, I fell back on an old favourite 唐記雞絲河粉 Tang Kee Chicken Hor Fun stall in Old Eight in One Restaurant coffee shop at Johor Jaya Rosmerah. I fell in love again with Tang Kee's rendition of the Ipoh classic. The more I tried food beyond JB, the more confident I am about the quality of food here - it's just that we need to seek them out one by one.

The Toast @ Mount Austin JB. A Contemporary Kopitiam (Coffee Shop)



The Toast coffee shop really needs no introduction for Johor Bahru folks - it is a very popular place for traditional Nanyang coffee, toasts, eggs, and the full range of local favourites like mee siam, nasi lemak, etc. I've been to The Toast's outlets in Johor Jaya and Permas Jaya, but was first time here at the Mount Austin branch. (They have one more outlet in Taman Ungku Tun Aminah.) Our experience at Mount Austin was good, as expected of The Toast.

Shang Ji Braised Duck. Johor Bahru's Biggest Braised Duck Brand 上记

D101 Durian from Johor. Humble but Delicious Mao Shan Wang Alternative



During this year's durian season, I developed a liking for the humble D101 durian from Johor. The bitter sweet D101 could be mistaken for the now abundant average Mao Shan Wang flooding the market but costs just ⅓ the price of the king.

Synthetic Pesticide Free Jin Feng Durian 金凤 from AnA Fruit Trading



Mao Shan Wang or Musang King is no doubt the king of durians in many people's hearts but Jin Feng 金凤, a very different durian, is often spoken of in the same breath and is even in the same price bracket. Jin Feng 金凤 fans swear by their durian like football fans' fierce loyalty to their favourite clubs.

Mei Chiew / Mei Qiu D828 Durian from Yong Peng Johor 柔佛永平美樹/ 美球榴莲



Mei Chiew / Mei Qiu 美樹/ 美球榴莲 (D828) from Yong Peng, Johor is one of the oldest durian cultivars yet it is still relatively unknown. If you Google search Mei Chiew / Mei Qiu D828 美樹/ 美球榴莲 now, you will find very few search results (I mean less than half a dozen).

Happy Garden Bak Kut Teh in Masai, Johor Bahru 快乐园肉骨茶 ⭐⭐⭐⭐



More than 6 years having fun, food spotting around Johor Bahru, how did I miss the excellent bak kut teh at Happy Garden 快乐园肉骨茶 in Masai? 😅 It's not that I have never been to Happy Garden BKT before. We were here over 2 years ago but I forgot what I was thinking... what was I thinking? 😂 Well, I always believe that late is better than never 😄

If you are in City Square Mall in Johor Bahru in the evening and feel a little adventurous to try something other than mall food, you might want to check out some authentic back lane dining in Meldrum Walk. It's a nice way to wrap up a day trip to JB with an authentic local street food experience.
