Whenever I crave for poached chicken , Restaurant Kong Sai
comes to mind, always a good choice.
A no frills place for home cooked styled dishes like omelette, double
boiled soups, stir fried vegetables, steamed fish, minced pork,
spring onion stuffed tofu puff.........etc
My personal two favorite dishes are poached chicken which is
very consistent -smooth, tender and well muscled with a dip that
contains chopped spring onion,ginger, oil and soy sauce that
compliments the chicken so well.
The pork ribs and potato is another signature dish - so thick,creamy
and not too spicy -best with white rice.

22 Korean Fried Chicken Factory is the latest Korean food craze
to invade Johor Bharu.
Located a stone throwaway from a Water Park in Taman Mount Austin -
a up and coming F&B place to visit when you are in Johor Bahru.
They are open at 12 pm -go early to avoid the queue.
At the front of the restaurant are a varieties of Korean snack foods for sale.
We were diners no:2, we placed and paid for our orders and got a number.
Our orders are , their signature garlic soy sauce with sesame three other
flavors of drumsticks, chicken wings, kimchi rice with wedges set.
Collected our food at the blip of our number on a digital display board
from a hole in the wall.
Served piping hot on trays- with plastic gloves to hold/savor the fried chicken -
super fresh crispy, moist and juicy.
Thumbs up !
Their creative sign board with recycled motor parts.

Bak Kut Teh is different cuts of pork cooked in a pot of herbal
concoction plus some secret ingredients for hours.
A tea pot of hot Chinese Pu'er tea is a must - to wash off those fats.
Kee Hiong Bak Kut Teh has more options compared to others-
dry BKT with chillies and okra, steamed fish, braised soy sheet,
golden needle mushroom and different types of blanched vegetables.
If you're hungry BKT is the quickest meal to be savored - affordable,
and wholesome meal gets to be served within minutes.
The pork ribs soup is rather robust, dark and too herbal.
Overall a contented tummy.

On our back from Johor Baru, we dropped by the historical Melaka city
for a half day makan (food) tour.
First stop was to - Ming Sate Hut near Plaza Mahkota for their grilled
Pork satay , innards and Chicken gizzards satay with their irresistible
pineapple/peanut sauce (a Melaka specialty).
Next we drove to nearby Yong Seng Gift Shop to buy 3 in 1 coffee and bisquit.
Then a distance away to Baba Charlie in Tengkera to buy and takeaway nyonya
kueh mueh and ate pie tees that was made on the spot by a young guy.
After that all the way to Cafe Lin's in Limbongan, for a wholesome Peranakan
home cooked chap fan (economy rice) lunch, buah keruak curry and cendol.

Imperial Rama is an award winning restaurant - Thai and Oriental cuisine.
It has a nice and elegant decor with limited seating, so reservation is a must.
Good and quiet ambiance - good food presentation to entice your taste buds.
