Due to my own opinion, I feel that it is really hard to find an authentic kopitiam around Muar. Another kopitiam that have plenty of stalls that serve local foods. Guess it's quite well-known around the area as their boss is walking with bare foot. Kopi Ice and Nescafé ice with only RM3 to start our day js very satisfying. Their Sarawak Kolok Mee (RM4 for small and RM5 for big) reminds me bout food back to Sarawak. However, the soup that served with is quite disappointing as it is tasteless like water. However, can't denied that their food is really cheap even with big portion.

Back to Muar, it's one of the signature local food that you must try. Bak Chor Mee (肉脞面), which literally means minced meat and noodles in Hokkien dialect. Was recommended by the locals so give it a try. It served with minced pork meat, fish cake, vegetables, fish balls and choices of noodles. Type of noodles can be Mee bok (薄面) or thick noodles. Mee bok is actually like the normal pan mee. Small size for RM4 and big one for RM4.50.

It's located behind Pesta UOB bank, Muar. You might need some time to find it as the shop is not exactly facing to the main road. Guess you can imagine what are they selling once you step into their restaurant, as the essence of sweetness is around the cafe. Not really have chance to try their dessert but ordered their signature big breakfast instead and it's quite surprising. Not because of the ingredients but with the portion. It consists of a croissant, sausages, omelette, hash browns, salads and mushrooms. Guess what, sausages with cheese in it is like adding crown to this. Just the hash browns are a little bit of overcooked. Overall is great. On the side note, you should check out their dessert as they serve their waffle or egglet is serve with Baskin Robbin ice cream, with a very acceptable price. Will be back again if around the neighborhood.

Somehow the salad is quite unique to me as they are serving smoked duck meat with green vegetables, corns and also cornflakes. Yes it is. Cornflakes. But you actually have to pour the whole sauce and mix well with the vege so you won't have a feeling like you are eating some raw vegetables. Their smoked duck in terms of texture, reminds me of eating sausage. Very chewy and the sauce is perfectly blend with the smoked duck, with pricing of RM11.40

If you are thinking where to chill in Muar, Gene might be one of a good place for you to chit chat with your gang here. They just located beside the main road in town. Was having 'the best cafe in town' rating from the internet so came to have a look and quite numbers of people are having beer instead of coffee here. Their fish and chips (RM18.50) is serving with big portion, with fries, salads and mayonnaise. The best thing is when you can avoid having a dried up fish and chips. Their fish is very well cooked, crispy outside and juicy inside. But their fries are very small in term of sizes, exactly like those you can get it from the bazaar. Golden nuggets (RM6.40) came with 6 pcs if not mistaken. Quite normal in terms of taste. Vibes are good. Ground floor is more like a cafe but upstair is more like a pub. Will be getting crowded after 8pm.

Elephant Bean is well known place around Muar as their coffee bean is locally grown around the neighbourhood. It's one of the local brand that's actually sell only around Muar (info from locals). The aroma taste of the coffee is very good compare to those local coffee brands, even better than some cafes in town. Their elephant bean coffee (hot for RM3.90 and cold for RM4.30) is better to drink before it gets cold. In the cafe, they mainly serving local food like Nasi Lemak with choices of chicken (RM8.90). Was ordered nasi lemak with chicken rendang and the taste is very authentic and spicy. Although the portion is quite small but the chicken rendang is very well-cooked. Try to avoid visit this during 12-1 cause it will fully occupied with people.
