Travel Stop: JB Food Trail

Amazing food places across the causeway. So worth the drive up. Perfect for day trips :D

Essentially shipping container converted into a coffee stop. There are no seats so everything is grab and go where you're free to explore the hip and cool streets in the area. Chaiwalla serves up the standard coffee but seem to specialise in cold beverages Vietnamese coffee, Thai milk tea, and customized frappes. I guess it's only fitting for the hot and humid weather. A worthwhile stop before heading over to queue for some awesome bread at Hiap Joo which is just round the corner!


This coconut ice cream (7 RM) is the bomb. Located just next to Watson's on B1, it's not only huge, but super satisfying and refreshing. The combination of ice cream with the coconut pulp is to die for. Added toppings also include corn and Oreo bits, hazelnuts, and coconut jelly. The jelly is super soft and tasty. Remember to grab this before you head for your shopping spree.


Hidden amongst an industrial estate is one of the chains of JWC (Just Want Coffee). Ambience here is really pleasant, the kind of place where you can chill for the entire day. From classics to cold brews, drips to , JWC offers a wide selection of types of coffee. Pictured is the Royal Coffee which is basically a long black with burning brandy and sugar in a spoon. For non-coffee people, try their hot chocolates; Grand Marnier Hot Chocolate is recommended. Also, an awesome place for some #ootd shots with an impeccable interior design and a 'wheeler's yard-esque' facade.


If you're looking for some awesome seafood, take a drive down JB east coast highway to head to 'Kelong'. Slightly out of the way but extremely worth it. The prices here will blow you mind; 2 crabs, 1 portion of cockles, 1 black Hokkien Mee, 1 Ee Mian for 212 RM. Crabs are going from at 5 RM/kg. The 'Kelong' also boasts a great rustic sea view. Oh, and you'd be able to get SG phone network service from here.


"I love eating. But I hate getting fat. I love eating. But I only want to eat the best. I love eating. But I'm reluctant to spend too much." The above are a few paradoxes that describe my love-hate relationship with food. Yet at the same time they define my principles for choosing the places which I love to eat: 1) Hearty 2) Tasty 3) Worthy (of my money)
