It's been sometimes since I last visited City Square in Johor Bahru and it came to our surprised when we saw this new shop front stating "Penang Road Famous Teochew Chendul". As a Chendol lover as well as with a dialect group of Teochew, I gave me no reason not to try.

Interior was spacious and modern, an opposite sight from its store front which looked traditional.

However when it comes to the ordering counter, there is a mixture of both old school and modernized concepts. With the mosaic tiles in shades of greys applied onto the walls of the counter, it brought us an olden day feel to somewhere back into the 60s together with its black & white photographs near its menu.

 
Upon ordering, we will be giving this number tag with the big signage on Penang Road Famous Teochew Chendul.

Chendul was tasted light with the blend coconut milk but that did not make the taste of Gula Melaka stands up. Though it was chilled but if it is being served in metal spoons, it would give better scores to what I seek for in a bowl of chill dessert.
Chendol - 6.90 Rm

Ice Kachang was ordinary and even the syrup add no effects to the bowl of ice . Green beans, creamy corns, chopped peanuts, green colored sagos as well as "atap" seeds were added but still lacking in volume as compared to the shaved ice.

All in all, desserts were passable, if I were to stamp my preference between these two, I would have Chendol voted.

 
Spending per head: Approximately RM6.90(下午茶)

Taiwan Nostalgia OK May 18, 2015

Categories : Taiwanese | Restaurant | Seafood | Noodles

Having walk round JB City Square a few rounds, we finally make up our mind and headed for Taiwanese Cuisine. We were quite please to see the crowd in the restaurant and went right ahead without giving much thought.

Taiwan nostalgia is located at a corner of level 3 somewhere near the escalator towards the link bridge to the Malaysia custom. Wifi is available in the restaurant if you are looking for some cyber connections via your smart phone.

We were served with menus as soon as we settled down in the restaurant.

Interior was decorated in modern Taiwanese style with soothing background pop music mainly from Taiwanese Singers. One thing I noticed about the ceilings was that there are patches of water stains on the fore-ceiling which make me feel a little bit uncomfortable dining there.

Verbana tea comes in a pot, served with wooden tray with 2 porcelin cups. Having this herbal tea not only boost the mood, it also aids digestion. There are many kinds of teas available on the menu with their health benefits summarized.

 
Unlike the hot tea, my cup of lime green tea with plum comes in a sealed disposable cup.

 
I have been missing Taiwanese food lately and upon spotting their braised meat rice, I planned to order it without much thought. I took the set menu to enjoy my meal to the fullest. Set meal is completed with a bowl of rice, soup, vegetable and dessert.

 
Luckily the portion of the rice came in small portion topped with favourful minced meat adorn by a little stalk of coriander leaves and not forgetting the full size braised egg. Meat was tasty and recommendable!

 
Vegetables strikes a good balance for a healthy meal. However the temperature of the food was not really ideal.

 
While the meatballs were served together with the soup and they are bouncy.

 
The meatball was cut into quarters, easier for us to chew on.

 
A glance onto other tables and you can see one of such Taiwanese Omelette was ordered.

 
Interestingly prepared in a roll form which reminds me of our local "popiah". A close look at it and you will see that the roll is actually made up of crispy "roti prata" filled with egg, meat floss and cabbages.
Lovely!

Lovely!

 
Here's the cross section of the roll.

Another attractive dish ordered was crispy salted chicken ramen. It was nicely done with portions of ingredients neatly place in the respective sector: Cripsy chicken, beansprouts, vegetables, shredded carrots, braised egg and braised minced meat with ramen all buried under them. We started by mixing everything together and get a "mess" in the bowl. Everything was good except that the noodle was a tad dry, perhaps there was not enough oil given for the noodles.

 
This was the long awaited dish and it came finally after few rounds of chasers. Served in claypot with burning fire, Mapo Tofu was really spicy and oily, living up to the dish's name. Ingredients like minced meat, tofu, chilli and mushrooms were distinctively bubbling under the flame. This dish is not recommended if you cannot take a higher level of spice.

 
Our meal end off with a chilled plate of cut pears, with compliments from the kitchen.

 
Afterall, I find that having Taiwan food in Taiwan Nostalgia was a good experience. Servers were all friendly and polite, quite on the ball type. Food wise, I would say portion and taste is decent to what we are paying for.
