Lai Xing Prawn Noodle 来興蝦面. Hidden Gem in Marsiling Lane Food Centre. Singapore


Whenever I walked past the old Marsiling Market & Cooked Food Centre, I will see a long queue at Lai Xing Prawn Noodle. This morning, the queue was shorter, so I quickly joined in as I had long wanted to find out why Lai Xing is so popular with residents. It was near closing time 10:30am, and I was one of the last customers for the day.

Restoran Kota Zheng Zong in Taman Sentosa 哥打正宗肉骨茶. Finally, Kota Tinggi Style BKT comes to JB


I was in Singapore, watching Johor Bahru social media buzzed with excitement about Restoran Kota Zheng Zong which opened less than a month ago, reputedly by family of the famous Kiang Kee bak kut teh near Kota Tinggi. As I don't like that 1.5 hour drive from JB to Kota Tinggi, I was eager to find out if I could really get Kota Tinggi style bak kut teh, right here in JB. So, checking out Kota Zheng Zong was top of my to-do list for this JB trip.

Dean Briyani Hyderabad. A Hidden Gem in TNB Staff Quarters in Kempas


Dean Briyani Hyderabad was one of the first restaurants I shared in Johor Kaki blog back in 2012. Six years on, I can't remember the details of Dean Briyani except for fond memories of how much I enjoyed it. So when Dean invited me to drop by his restaurant, I thought it was timely to revisit.

Kukoh 21 Food Centre Ri Tao Fu. Best Teochew Pig's Organ Soup in my Memory


Today's makan outing was at the old Kukoh 21 Food Centre, off Chin Swee Road (near Chinatown). Our usual thing at hawker centres is to order food from a few stalls and share. Our table was already full of food when Catherine brought back this pork organ soup. At that time, I already set my sights on another dish and so just took obligatory shots of the pork organ soup. I didn't even bother to take it off the serving tray - too much food already and pork organ soup wasn't on my Must Eat list.
