Dinner in the Sky Malaysia is now in Johor for two months (from 20 May till 19 Jun 2016). Dinner in the Sky is a novel dining concept that has travelled the world since starting in Brussels, Belgium in 2006. After over 40 cities, including KL in 2015 and Penang earlier in 2016, Dinner in the Sky Malaysia is now in Johor Bahru.

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.

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.
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 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.
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

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).

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. 跟全蛋面一起吃, 好好吃的云吞面.
