7 Kauthar Cafe in Setia Tropika. One of JB's Best Laksa Johor

Buddy Yvonne who always gives me great foodie tips on the best eats in JB, alerted me to a newly opened restaurant which she said serves the "best laksa Johor now". I quickly went for breakfast at 7 Kauthar Cafe in Setia Tropika as l am always on the look out for good laksa Johor. It is the representative dish of Johor but good ones are very hard to find commercially even in JB.

7 Kauthar Cafe is not yet a month old. The spanking new restaurant is run by sisters Suzie and Nadia.

The corner eatery in Taman Setia Tropika was simply furnished but comfortable, clean and bright. There was no air conditioning but it was cool and breezy inside.

Nadia said the laksa Johor is made with her mum's recipe whom she had been helping in the kitchen since she was a child. Suzie and Nadia are passionate about cooking and sharing it through 7 Kauthar Cafe which tag line is "Cook with Love. Feel at Home".

The RM8 serving of laksa Johor was a bowl of boiled spaghetti in a pool of fiery looking sauce dressed with raw onion, bean sprouts, lime and a dollop of sambal chili.

The spaghetti was cooked till soft tender which is the way I like it for laksa Johor. The rich creamy sauce with lots of herbs and spices clanged to the strands, giving them a spicy flavour. The laksa sauce tasted sweet spicy hot savoury. It felt soft grainy as there were lots herbs, grounded Tenggiri fish (Spanish Mackerel) and prawns etc. Clean tasting bean sprouts added sweet juicy crunch to the dish.

Do l like this laksa Johor? Enough to order a second helping 😋

Nadia suggested that l try their other dishes too next time especially the Nasi Kambing Berdulang. I am sure to be back with more people.

👍 Thank you Yvonne, you are right that 7 Kauthar Cafe has the best laksa Johor money can buy now. The laksa Johor certainly has a cook with love, feels like home taste. (I haven't tried the other dishes, so cannot vouch for them at the moment 😁 )
