    New Lucky restaurant is a great seafood place.

    You can eat indoors or outdoors.

    I'd prefer to eat outdoors because somehow my bill always seem cheaper when i eat outdoors.

    Favorite Dish: The other day, my family had:-
    Kampong Chicken
    Crab with dried prawns and curry leaves (their specialty)
    Steamed tofu
    Stir fried mini french beans
    frogs legs fried with ginger and oyster sauce

    Bill came up to RM 147.00
    There wasn't any service charge! Just goverment tax.

    Thought it was pretty reasonable. Well, I enjoyed the food and I will definitely come back again.

    Tea City Cuisine: Chinese food cooked with Tea!

    by Avya Updated Sep 21, 2009

    This restaurant serves typical Chinese dishes with rice. Everything here is cooked with a little tea in it even the rice! but don't worry, it doesn't spoil the taste!
    Decor is good, very presentable.
    Staff are friendly, alert and courteous.
    Prices are reasonable. Usually a party of 4 would cost about RM 100 which is about USD 29!

    This place is a must-try in JB if you love Malaysian authentic Chinese cuisine.

    My favourites are the salad prawns, the steamed tofu with mince meat, the string beans, the cod fish... yummy! Oh yes, the roast duck is very good too.

    Latest breaking news
    I'm sorry to say that this restaurant is no longer there. I'm really sad as I loved the food there. Wonder if they moved or something...

  • Lao Di Teochew Kuew Tiao Stall (Hock Chiang Hin): PLZ TRY THIS!

    by Lynn_88 Updated Jul 4, 2009
    The Shop's Look
    4 more images

    If you're a lover of noodles, I think you'll surely wanna try this out!! I discovered this fabulous noodles stall on my recent shopping trip across the causeway in JB.

    This stall is in a relatively old shop, some may complain of the lack of ambience and non air-conditioned, but I would say, who cares??-- I will not mind sweating a little for food that I think is truly worth it. Quality matters =)

    I think it's really rare nowadays to find homemade noodles (other than those in expensive restaurants). This stall sells not only homemade noodles which are smooth and chewy, but also homemade fishballs which I think is truly, simply, totally YUMMY!! Most importantly, it is selling at only RM 4 per bowl!!

    Starts selling at 9.00 am till around 2 pm only.

    Favorite Dish: MEE POK!! (dry thick noodles)
    The homemade noodles go very well with the light seasoning and vinegar. Its not those noodles mixed with soya sauce that you can find everywhere and anywhere. Other ingredients that can be found are my favourite fishballs, meatballs, small prawns, minced pork and beansprouts. Alternatively, you can try the thin noodles. But I still think the mee pok is the best! =) **note: you may request for your noodles to be lard-free

    Kuew Tiao Soup
    The kuew tiao is also very smooth, and the best part is the soup.

    the coffee shop...
    1 more image

    The coffee shop is non air-conditioned and is a typical Hainanese coffee shop... Located on the narrow Jalan Trus, parking is always a problem... It is usually crowded in the mornings and during lunch time...

    Favorite Dish: In the morning, the coffee shop serves its noted coffee and tea, kaya toasts and hard boiled eggs... It also serves economic noodles... For lunch, there is the nasi lemak which is a favorite of the Johor Baru lunch crowd...

    JB - Kedai Roti & Kek Hiap Joo: JB - Kedai Roti & Kek Hiap Joo

    by chiabh Updated Mar 10, 2009
    hiap joo is the name
    3 more images

    This delicious bakery has been operating ever since the British left the country... It was owned by the British to bake bread... Today, the outlook of this quaint little bakery that was started by Lim Joo Ban in the 1930s remains virtually the same... The over 80-year-old bakery was started by the late patriarch Lim Joo Ban... The bread is still made the same way he did it when he arrived from Hainan Island in 1928, although the business is now run by his children and grandchildren... A huge woodfire oven dominates the small shop, the walls blackened by years of smoke...

    The bakery is opened from 8.00am to 6.00pm... It is closed on Sundays... However, baking only starts from 12.30pm...

    Favorite Dish: Today, Hiap Joo Bakery sets at Jalan Tan Hiok Nee sells Kaya buns, Red Bean buns, Coconut buns, Banana cakes and bread... The bakery is famous for its banana cake... Soft and moist with the intoxicating perfume of bananas, the melt-in-your-mouth cake is one of the best around...

    Fresh buns and loaves are only available after 2.30pm while banana cakes from 3.00pm... The daily routine goes something like this... The dough is prepared from 8.00am and by 10.30am, the risen dough would be shaped and filled... 30 minutes later, the charcoal oven is fired up... After 2.00pm, trays of prepared pastries are systematically arranged and frequently rotated inside the charcoal oven using a long shovel-like instrument...

    The restaurant is along Jalan Biru...It is a single storey building (although its name means 3 stories in Chinese)... It is non-airconditioned but the atmosphere is good and it is cool and airy in the evening for dinner...

    Favorite Dish: The most famous dish here is the fried mee hoon... it is dried fried and the best not only in Johor Bahru but in the country... I always come here just for the fried mee hoon...

    Other dishes include seafood... the steam fish is also good and comparatively cheaper than other seafood restaurants in Johor Bahru... There are also lala shellfish, prawns etc...

    Hou Lin: Ho Seng Kee Wanton Mee

    by Avya Updated May 25, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It's a typical old fashioned coffee shop along Jalan Harimau in Century Garden, close to Holiday Plaza.

    It's a father and son effort and their famous noodle has appeared many times in the press. If you don't mind a lousy looking coffee shop to try JB local wanton noodle, then do come and try.

    You must say 'yes' when they ask you if you want chilli added. The chilli enhances the flavour of the dish a lot!

    The JB wanton noodle is different from the KL wanton noodle. KL wanton noodle is with the dark soya sauce, but as you can from the pic, JB wanton noodle is without the dark soya sauce.

    It only costs RM 3 for small, RM 4 for medium and RM 5 for large. I chose the medium and I still found that insufficient. The small portion is kids portion, I'd say. The medium for ladies and large for men.
