For one meal together, we ordered our food from 3 different stalls - MR FISH, 80 Huat Huat and Shi Xiang Satay, getting the best dishes from each.

Teo-Heng-Teochew-Porridge-Hong-Lim-Food-Centre

This was the 3rd meal of our makan outing because the first 2, though nice didn't quite inspire enough. I suggested walking over to Hong Lim Food Centre for the famous Teo Heng Teochew porridge because it's a light meal that can fit into our precious last remaining stomach space. We were glad we did as we were all mind blown by the boiled rabbit fish 白肚鱼 🐟 Teo Heng is always a safe bet but this pak tor herr fish was beyond my expectation.

This is the best roti canai / prata in Johor Jaya Ros Merah and one of the best in JB. Boss Fahrul has been flipping roti for over 20 years - he flips the dough big and wide like a large scarf so we get prata that is crisp on the outside and the many folds inside are moist and gently chewy. Enjoy it with nice mild curry that is spiced up with sambal chili with lots of anchovy taste.
