Just Want Coffee @Tmn Sutera.

My daughter, Mindy needs her coffee fix at least once in the morning.

So, when we were in Johor Baru, Just Want Coffee is the answer.

Located near to Sutera Mall, it is quite a nice place to hang around
and chit-chat.

Besides coffee, they served bit sized food and brunch food.

As I am not a coffee drinker, I went for their food ( so no photo of coffee).

Prices are comparable to KL.

Chicken Sandwich-m12.90/

Just Big Breakfast-Rm24.90/

Geylang Lor 9 - Frog legs Porridge @Singapore.

We stayed in Johor Baru, for two days before we
attended our nephew's wedding dinner in Singapore on a Sunday.

 On Saturday afternoon, we ( six persons) went to Singapore by bus 
and it was a first for three of us.
The Causeway Link bus (RM5/) took off from Giant Hypermart in 
Bukit Indah and reached Tuas (Second Link) by 30 minutes.
We cleared both Immigration checkpoints but we missed our bus.
It was our lucky day as another bus came after a five minutes wait.

The adventure starts when the bus stopped at Boon Lay MRT station.
We purchased our tickets and boarded a train to City Hall - disembarked
and  got on the Red Line to Orchard Road.

The underground station leads us out to shopping malls and the fun and 
shopping begins.
Be prepared to walk until your legs sore (wear good walking shoes).

After five hours of malls hopping, queuing and rubbing shoulders with others 
shoppers, we were famished and it was time for dinner.

We took a taxi to Geylang (a red light district) Lor 9, famous for it's fresh 
frog legs porridge.  

Our orders:
1: Claypot  "gong bao" plain frog legs.
2: Claypot "gong bao" spicy frog legs
3:Grilled stingray fish.
4: Fried Or chien (oyster omelette).
5: Fried Beef kway teow from the opposite shop.
6:Boiled Cockles

Needless to say, we cleaned up all the food served.

Overall a great meal.

Boiled cockles served with chillies dip and a piece of limau kasturi- very fresh and not to much muddy smell..

Fried oyster omelette garnished with spring onion and chillies dip - very fresh oyster and the omelette was crisp and i like the tapioca flour that blends nicely with it..

Grilled Stingray fish (fresh and sweet) garnished with freshly chopped onion and two types of dip.

Spicy fresh frog legs with lotsof dried Bombay red chillies and spring onion..
Plain fresh frog legs served piping hot..

Gooey, plain, smooth and hot white porridge with chopped spring onion.
Beef Kway Teow fried with ginger and spring onion- full of gravy-a bit salty and the beef was well marinated and tender.

Location: Lor 9, Geylang,

Restoran BBQ Soon Hing @ Pusat Bandar Puchong.

and BBQ meat business for quite a number of years, now.

Hesitated to try them out because of it been run by foreigners.

I was skeptical until my car foreman reassured me of it's food.

It is located along the same row with Tesco- a few doors away from
Maybank and fronting LRT pillars and LDP highway.

Orders were done with a PDA and service was efficient.

Pay when food is served.

As it was a public holiday-parking is abundant.

We had dry wanton mee (not as springy as I like it to be but OK ) 
with 1: BBQ ribs ( well marinated, smokey flavor-a bit charred and 
sweet) 2:braised Chicken feet (just right with not too much 5 Spices 
powder and cinnamon) with soft, smooth earthy mushroom 3: BBQ

Obanhmi @Damansara Utama.

An accidental visit to Obanhmi (a Vietnamese sandwich shop)
because Village Park was full of people.

Found a parking lot, right in front of the shop.

The high chairs and tables did not deter my mum (85 years old) as she 
climbs and bravely sits on it.

The self service orders were easy for diners to choose as they were 
clearly printed on a signboard with photos and descriptions.

The freshly baked baguette were not too long, with a nice golden brown color
 crisp crust and soft airy inside.

Bundled with fresh coriander, pickled carrot and daikon, grilled pork, 
sunny side fried egg, tomato, house made mayonnaise and Vietnamese 
chilli sauce that lingers on my palate- it was a delight to eat with every bite !

I would recommend that you do not bite too much at one go-so that you
can savor it slowly.

 We also had two types of rice paper spring rolls-freshly rolled and deep fried which 
came with two types of dipping sauce to add flavor to it and a beef stew.

 Overall an affordable and fulfilling meal.

O-Summery-fresh rice paper spring rolls wrapped with shrimp, fresh lettuce, pickled carrot and daikon and deep fried shallot - Rm8/

O-Rolly- deep fried rice paper spring rolls with minced pork, mushroom, pickled carrot and daikon...etc - RM7.50/

O-BBQ-served with grilled pork, sunny side fried egg, fresh coriander leaves, pickled carrot and daikon topped with Vietnamese chillies sauce-Rm10.50

Stew-O-beef stewed to the right consistency (not too diluted) - dipped baguette in it, to absorbs all the flavors- Rm10/

 Location:33, Jalan SS21/56B,
Damansara Utama,
Petaling Jaya.

Restoran Makanan Laut Lung Seng @Tanjung Tualang.

If you happen to be around Mambang Diawan (Fairies in the Clouds)
Tanjung Tualang is just not too far away.

Restoran Makanan Laut Lung Seng is one of the earlier restaurant to 
serve freshwater prawn and is also  fully air-conditioned.

Located about 30 minutes away from Kampar town.

The main draw in  this small, sleepy hollow of Tanjung Tualang town is their 
freshwater prawn, seafood restaurants and a Sunday Pasar Malam.

 We had freshwater prawns + sea prawn (not enough of freshwater prawns)
cooked in kon chin har lok styled-very fresh, sweet, succulent and fragrant.

Boiled Cuttlefish with freshly diced green cucumber and big onion doused
in a thick, sweet and spicy Rojak-like sauce with lots of crushed peanuts.

Grouper fish head with long beans, okra, brinjal cooked in a creamy"lemak" 
spicy Indian styled curry - very appetizing and goes well with rice.

Marmite pork ribs was well marinated and tender.

House made Tofu was silky smooth-topped with a Tapioca flour reduced
brown sauce with shrimp, sliced carrot, mushroom, young baby corn and pea bean.

Overall a good spread of food for the eight of us.

Parking is OK.

Kon chin har lok -fresh water prawns and added sea prawns.
