Really awesome Nasi Lemak tucked near the famous petaling street. The fried chicken is really good, the rice is fluffy and full of that coconut flavour you would expect, but the star of the show is the sambal that binds everything perfectly together!

I love how they made the pieces of meat chunky and finished it well over the grill, not over charring everything but leaving it perfectly cooked. The sauce has a nice spicy hint to it to leave you wanting more!

Came here just to try the chicken wings, but ended up ordering a full blown meal that was epic in its own way. The wings were perfectly grilled over charcoaled fire and you can taste the deep deep marinate that it’s been in for a long period of time with every bite. Make sure you order more than enough because it’s a long wait!

Tucked inside this busy coffee shop near Petaling Street, you’ll find this famous beef noodle soup that has been here for ages. I love the fried garlic bits in the soup that gives it that extra texture and flavour along with all the beef parts, and the salted vegetables as well. Be sure to check it out when you can.

Extraordinary value for a dish like this, the broth is excellent with the ginger, chilli and chinese wine all perfectly balanced to extract the sweetness of the clams. The bee hoon is then added at the last minute to soak up all that goodness to prevent it from being overcooked. They are pretty generous with the amount of clams for just RM10, be sure to order this when you are here!

Tucked in the corner of petaling street, this stalls serves up perfectly cooked noodles that have such a delightful spring and bite to it. The wantons are plump and placed in a flavourful broth, and the noodles are accompanied by your choice of char siew or steam chicken. Check it out when you can!

Always a stop for me when I come to KL... this banana leaf stall has left an impression on me since the first time I had it and it’s still good! As mentioned by the other reviews, be sure to enjoy the fried bitter gourd, but the beans are also great! I’ll recommend a side of mutton curry and the fried squid to go with this meal!

Chanced upon this little street that is near City Square which featured many street vendors selling the local delights. It's the absolute true experience of what Malaysian cuisine should be about and be warn that it is not glamorous at all. But bear with all of that and pull be rewarded with the best Sup Kambing, Nasi Campur, Maggie Goreng and Teh Tarik! This place is definitely going to be on my must-go list every time I head to JB.

If you're ever near KSL Mall, don't give in and go to the BKT across the road as it's expensive and not as good. But instead get onto a taxi, pay about RM4 and head on down to Shoon Huat at Taman Sentosa. You order by choosing how many people are eating, followed by all the additional add ons. I'll recommend the Pork tendon, clams and fish maw to go with everything else. Don't forget to grab a bowl or two of the preserved vegetables!

Close to Sutera Mall in Johor is Meng Meng Roasted Duck where you can enjoy Roasted Duck, Roast Pork and Char Siew. If you had to pick one, I'll go with the Char Siew as you hardly get this in Singapore. It's fatty and caramelized with this thick sweet sauce on the outside, and it's been charred to give that nice crunch with each bite. Go check it out!

Although the restaurant and supplier's name is focus on the duck, the oh-so candilicious and fatty char siew won the best dish for me! It's hard to find a place in Singapore that does it so well in this style, so if you're ever in JB and wondering what to eat during your shopping break, come check this place out!

There's nothing like drinking the broth that has been boiling with Pork Bones for a long period of time, and the broth here is full of flavor by yet it is surprisingly light too. The clay pot if filled with a variety of ingredients like Pork Ribs, Pork Balls, Mushrooms and bean curd skin like things. And you will be all set once you order your rice and the usual side orders of the Pig Trotters, Salted Vegetables and Peanuts. Slightly pricey for Malaysian prices (abt RM20 per person), but worth a visit if you have never been before.
