Taman Tasek Hawker Centre in Johor Bahru Malaysia. Untrendy but Cool

Johor Bahru Malaysia has numerous public hawker centres, each with it own character. Taman Tasek Hawker Centre set under huge leafy trees and surrounded by fruit trees may be among the smallest, yet it is well loved by its immediate community and visitors from out of town Malaysia and Singapore.

Visiting Thian Hock Keng temple 天福宫 will give you insights into Singapore's early Chinese immigrants, especially the Hokkien people who make up about half the Chinese population on the island.

Hung Kitchen 韩小厨. Western Cuisine in Kampung Ungku Mohsin Johor Bahru

Hung Kitchen 韩小厨. Western Cuisine in Kampung Ungku Mohsin Johor Bahru

You know right, decades ago we used to hang out a lot at restaurant chains like Jacks Place and The Ship for family and budget friendly Western meals. Hung Kitchen 韩小厨 is like a Jacks Place or The Ship but more charming to me as it is set in a kampung (village) 😄 It's probably the only Western food restaurant in a village in Malaysia.

928 Yishun Laksa ⭐⭐⭐⭐

928 Yishun Laksa

There's a running joke among Singaporeans that Yishun is a strange place known for many negative things like a slasher, cat killer, and other weird happenings. That, of course, are all tongue in cheek, poking fun at Yishun folks. Maybe, the rest of us are just jealous that Yishun people have so many nice food like 925 chicken rice, Chong Pang Chuan Kee duck rice, and 928 laksa 😂

Super Lobster Restaurant a Worthy Alternative in Sg Rengit 龍皇海鮮樓

Superior Broth Lobsters

I haven't been back to Sg Rengit for lobsters for over 3 years. After trying various lobster places there, I concluded that on balance Jade Garden Seafood Corner was the safest bet. But, I have continued looking for alternatives. This trip, I think I found a worthy alternative in Super Lobster Restaurant 龍皇海鮮樓.
