This was my first time having ceviche in Johor Bahru :-D

Chef Fazrul laid slices of fresh ocean trout on a creamy yellow river of Hollandaise sauce dressed with cherry tomatoes, basil leaves, orange, arugula leaves and dashes of lemon juice and balsamic vinegar.

After whetting our appetites with the ceviche, Chef Fazrul's team piled us with, not one..., not two.... but three pizza planks baked in a wood fired brick oven.

I firmly believe that taste is subjective and so, warmly welcome differing viewpoints :-D But, I disapprove negative comments that are anonymous or hide behind fake identities. I feel that that is the same as speaking ill of others behind their backs. I look forward to all your comments :-D Thank you. (Date: 18 Dec 2015)
