Drove to Sungai Rengit 30 km from desaru for seafood dinner. Went to a restaurant called Jade Garden . I give 5/5 for the food and services. Pricing is reasonable.
Favorite Dish: lobster!!!!big size lobster and smaller size lobster, price cheaper than lobster house or EDEN restaurant.home made beancurd.and fish steam nyonya style.Don't forget to grap a few packets of Prawn Fried Crackers for souveniers
Take a drive down south to Pengerang from Desaru beach area to savour fresh lobster, crab and shellfish. Coming from JB resident, I found that the seafood there is really cheap. My trip was a little more interesting cos' my husband and I stopped by the Ostrich farm on the way.
I prefer chinese restaurants (non-halal) to cook the seafood, more worth it than having malay food or food from the hotel. Malay food in JB is better and cleaner. Email me if you want some tips!
Favorite Dish: The lobster! really fresh and sweet flesh
Visitors like to have their meal in the hotel, but if you have your own transport, try to eat the food outside the hotel. I assure you better taste at lower price.
