Day trip to Johor, Malaysia

IMG_7666Today was yet another day trip to Johor filled with fun and laughter 😀

We started off late around 8.30am today, which turned out to be a good thing, because it was pouring so heavily in the morning. There was a fair bit of jam at customs, but we managed to clear it after an hour or so.

Our itinerary for the day:

Pretty relaxed, and we did spend a bit of time getting lost, but it was always so fun getting lost together 😛 Looking forward to our next trip together, Ms K and Ms T!

Restoran Chua Kee 蔡記海鮮樓 @Johor, Malaysia

IMG20180904173545Gelang Patah is famous for seafood, and there were quite a few restaurants with good reviews. Today, we decided to check out Restoran Chua Kee 蔡記海鮮樓. Looking at the reviews, we made it a point to reach here before 6pm, where it was mostly empty on a Tuesday evening.

Since we were early, we did a quick stroll around the area. There were actually quite a few provision shops here, and some eateries were already closed by this time.

Maco Cafe & Bakery @Johor, Malaysia

IMG20180904155406We were back to Taman Sutera Utama 五福城 again! Our gang rather like this place because the Sutera Mall 五福城广场 is definitely less crowded than City Square Mall, and there is this stretch of shops just opposite the mall, for more shopping, and food. Lots of cafe within this vicinity too 🙂

We had tried Just Want Coffee, The Bear and Fish during our previous trip, and today, we decided to check out Maco Cafe & Bakery.

There was a Teatime Combo on weekdays 3pm to 6pm (excluding Public Holidays), where you could choose pair a Mille Crepe (usual price RM9.90) with any coffee beverage (excluding Cafe Brulee series, so usual prices range from RM6.90 to RM11.90) or premium tea selections (usual price RM11.90).

萬香城餐館 Ban Heong Seng Restaurant @Johor, Malaysia

IMG_7626We had wanted to check out this place for the last few trips but it was always closed (because we kept picking the same day to travel 😡). This time, we especially picked a different day, and called in advance to make reservations.

We found the place slightly before 12 noon, and found the metal gates still locked 😮 However, looking through the gates, it seemed that the back door was open, and we figured that we would just take a peep, as we were not too sure if this was the correct place to be, as there were a couple of similarly-named places found in Google Maps.

Boy, were we glad that we went to the back, for we got to see how 叫化鷄 Beggar Chicken was prepared 😀 The owner was preparing the chicken, and explained to us how it was done, hehe! Continue reading

Bukit Chagar Roti Canai @Johor, Malaysia

IMG_7623We went on a day trip to Johore again!

And first up was this popular roti canai (or roti prata in Singapore) near the JB custom.

Despite being quite near customs, it took us a little while to find the correct route to this little corner. And it didn’t help that it was raining heavily.

We reached around 10.30am, and split up the work; one went to queue and order, while the rest of us try to secure a table.

We ordered Roti Canai Kosong (RM1 each), and by 10.45am, all roti canai was sold out. We were one of the last few customers, lucky sia!

Cafes @Melaka, Malaysia

IMG_7365IMG_7397During our short three day two night trip to Malacca, we still managed to visit 3 cafes 🙂

We had visited a few during our past trips, so we wanted to try out new ones this time.

A quick Google search showed that there were many cafes with good reviews near Jonker Street, so we basically picked based on where was convenient.

Thong Shui House @Melaka, Malaysia

Though the place mentioned Thong Shui, which literally meant “sugar water”, or desserts, we were actually here for the Golden Mee Hoon Kuih 黄金金面粉糕 (RM6.60 for small, RM9 for large, option of dry or soup). I seldom have good experiences with such hand torn noodles, as they tend to have different shapes and thickness, and the soup version is usually quite starchy. I had stopped eating this for years after having a rather bad experience with uncooked noodles -_-”

I gotta say this was a rather pleasing bowl of Mee Hoon Kuih (or Mee Hoon Kueh, as spelt in Singapore)! Firstly, the pumpkin dough gave the noodles a pretty colour, and the hand torn noodles were of similar thickness. The noodles were cooked just right, without being too soggy, or having parts that were uncooked. The accompanying ikan bilis (small fried anchovies) were very crispy, and the meat were tender. The noodles tasted slightly sweet, and after mixing in the sambal chilli, the entire bowl of noodles took on an extra layer of flavours 🙂 We really enjoyed this bowl of lovely Mee Hoon Kuih.

We also tried the signature <strong>Thong Shui Fried Bee Hoon with Rendang Chicken 招牌米粉和仁当鸡 (RM8), which was not bad, but paled in comparison to the noodles.,

榮茂茶室 Low Yong Moh Restaurant @Melaka, Malaysia

Our last morning in Melaka, and we were on our way to check out some cafe when we past by 榮茂茶室 Low Yong Moh Dim Sum Restaurant, and there was no queue 😮 Well, considering we did not have a really good experience with dim sum the previous day, and this was the place where we visited during our first trip to Melaka, we decided that we should not have any dim sum regrets. Yes, we got side-tracked again 😛

The place was just as we remembered how it was, fairly bustling and crowded. Service was prompt and rather friendly. Once we settled down and ordered our Pu-Er tea (RM 1.10 per pax), staff came by with trays of assorted dim sum and we just pointed to whatever we fancied. The prices of the dim sum that we ordered ranged from RM1.70 to RM3, and could go up to RM5. Erm, the menu was not very helpful in determining prices, so just order what you fancy 🙂

While the food was not fancy, it was definitely better than yesterday 😛 We particularly enjoyed the juicy and tender chicken wrapped in aluminium foil. Hubby, as usual, enjoyed his fishballs 😛 And despite the bustle and hustle, time seemed to just slow down while we take in the sights and enjoy our food in this little old-school joint 🙂

九楼油条 Nine Floors Yu Cha Kuih @Melaka, Malaysia

IMG_7426We were on our way back to the hotel, when we caught a glimpse of a queue from the corner of our eyes. Like a magnet, we were automatically attracted to it, and we simply had to pause to take a closer look. Actually, we could not quite make out what the little stall was selling, so we decide to cross the road to have a better look 😛

It was a very simple stall selling 3 types of dough fritters, with the best seller the super lengthy 油条 (Yu Cha Kuih, or Youtiao), while the other 2 types were 咸煎饼 (Ham Chim Peng) and 马花炸 (“Butterfly Wings”). Since we were not really fans of Butterfly Wings, we decided to get one each of the other 2 types for supper back in hotel. The queue moved quite slowly, because everyone else were buying dozens 😮
