http://www.umakemehungry.com/2017/11/restoran-todak-orang-asli.html
Todak is one of the many seafood restaurants that most Singaporeans will visit in JB.We were there on a Sunday night and it was no surprise that the place is fully packed with people and we have to stand there and wait for quite sometime before getting a table even though we were not in big groups. As the crowd was kind of beyond control, it will be best that customers secure seating on their own. However, one thing that you have to be very sure is that, waiting time for food is still within the acceptable limit.

As Todak is located just opposite Singapore divining by the sea, one good advantage is that some of us are actually able to received Singapore's Telecom reception.

Todak These golden fried buns were big and definite good to dip into the chilli sauce of the crab. They were not too greasy and the outer layer of it is crispy.

 
Buns - RM 10 Lala was pretty interesting as it was stirred fried and came in some curry, sweet chilli taste. It was fragrant and addictive, thus the plate was quickly done up shortly after it was served. Calms were fresh and chewy and the gravy is a perfect pairing to the bowl of white rices.

 
Lala (Small) - RM 12
Ingredients of Fu Rong Egg is generous and it was fried to crisp.

 
Fu Rong Egg (Small) - RM 6 Grouper was charged at RM 10 for per 100g. There are variable ways to have the fish to be served and we had decided to have it cooked in Teochew Style. Not to mention that the fish was truly fresh as we were given the choice to choose the desire fish out of the big container of live fishes. It was well prepared without any stinky seafood smell however, do not expect that the scale is 100% removed. The broth was light and refreshing, not overly salty as those preserved vegetables were placed sparingly. Other ingredients includes sour plum, slices mushrooms, chilli as well as tofu cubes. The presentation of the dish was also lifted up in colors by the greens.

 
Grouper - RM 70 Last but not least, we had the crustaceans. Rate is going at RM 7 per 100g. Likewise, the style that you want it to be done varies and we had the most mainstream way of serving which frying in chilli. Gravy was not too spicy and good to pair with the golden fried buns.

Let's work on our fingers and remember to borrow their heavy crab cracking tool if you need.

 
Crab - RM 56 We got the seating in the middle of the place and it was quite disturbing to us as there were a lot of movements on the planks resulting in vibrating during dining. If you have a choice, try to find a seat that is not that centralized. As for parking wise, there is no need to worry. Parking space is ample and there are even carpark ushers who will aid you in parking your car.

http://www.umakemehungry.com/2018/01/amy-heritage-nyonya-cuisine.html

Finally, we had visited Amy Heritage Nyonya Cuisine before leaving Melaka. This is one of the popular Nyonya Food that have good feedbacks on the media. It is Halal and just as what was written by everyone, reservation in advance is needed. Being walk-in customers, we were only offered one of the outdoors tables out of the two, non-airconditioned by there was a ceiling fan.

As we settled down on the outside seats, the servers were quick to service. Service was friendly and efficient when handling their menu as soon as we sat down.

We flipped through the menu and notice that there were only medium and large portions. As the dishes does not contain pork and lard, it is suitable for Muslim's consumption.

The crispy top hat with shredded turnip filling and served with chilli sauce. Glad that it was not too oily.

Lime Juice, Barli & Lime, Cincau - RM 2.00

Each Was looking forward for a bowl of Duck Soup with Salted vegetable and sour plum but it was not available, thus we order their recommended Hee Peow Soup. It is noted as "Nyonya Wedding Soup" with dried fish bladder , quail eggs, fish ball and vegetable.

Hee Peow Soup - RM 25.00

The Nyonya style mixed vegetables was indeed tasty with carrots, black fungus and cabbages..

Ayam Pongteh is a classic chicken stew with soya bean paste, chinese mushroom and potatoes. The portion was generously served with couple of chicken drum sticks and delicious. I love its gravy and perfect to go on our plates of fragrant white rice.

Amy's serving of rice was quite different from the rest of the Nyonya Shops we went in Melaka. Rice was kept in a traditional old hand held basket.

As the basket was quite big and space was rather limited at the outside seats, the servers placed the basket using another table.

Our finisher for the Nyonya feast was non other than the MUST HAVE dessert, Cendol. The green jelly has a soft texture soaked in gula melaka and coconut milk.

Amy Heritage indeed has a given a homely taste to all the dishes. Coming to its portion where minimum order is medium, its not recommended for small group to dine. In addition to things to take note, do make advance booking to avoid disappointment.

http://www.umakemehungry.com/2017/12/sunroast.html

As we are on our road trip towards Port Dickson, we stopped by over at Yong Peng Sunroast to fix our stomach. Sunroast has one of the famous roasted delights and has handful of popular reviews. Sunroast looks like a family-run business with their children helping out.

Interior Sunroast While waiting for our order, we ordered Passion Fruit Drink and Honey Lemon drink.

Passion Fruit Drink - RM 3.50 & Honey Lemon - RM 3.50

Passion Fruit Drink - RM 3.50 & Honey Lemon - RM 3.50

 
 Sunroast is specialized in roasted delicacies adopting the use of charcoal method. I do not really fancy roasted pork meat but it was perfectly done without too much fatty meat. The layer of meat and fat were distinct. As for the Char Siew, it was an addiction to me, I cant resist having more pieces of it. It was lean and chewy.

Roasted Duck meat was delicious and supported by braised peanuts in its bottom. Glistering skin was crispy and meat was packed full of juiciness. I love the fact that the roasted duck meat was not overly salty and greasy.

One of their specialties will be Hakka 4 kinds of Yong Tou Foo. Freshly made and tasty to go with noodles and rice.

 
Hakka Yong Tau Foo - RM 5.00 Their noodles had caught my surprise. It was springy and fragrant in its black sauce. Thickness of noodle was broader than our "Mee Kia".

Noodle (Small) - RM 2.00

Noodle (Small) - RM 2.00

 
There are two types of rice, the plain one and the one with fragrant. We ordered both to pair with the roasted meat. Rice was on the soft side though.

Rice - RM 1.20 (Big)

Rice - RM 1.20 (Big)

 
Parking is make easy on the grass patch and stones gravel. Overall, if you are passing by Yong Peng, I find that its a worthy stop over for Roasted food.

http://www.umakemehungry.com/2016/06/sangkaya-nuts-about-coconut.html

Heard about coconut ice cream? For those who have been to Thailand, having Ice Creams in a coconut bowl is perhaps nothing new to you. With such desserts getting popular nowadays, the cafe in Johor Bahru did not forget about this trendy dessert from its neighbouring country.

As soon as we entered into the Cafe, the friendly staff greeted us. There is a leading staircase up to the second level, unfortunately they are still working on the dining space upstairs and I guess the place will soon be packed with patrons both lower and upper levels.

Interior was industrial theme and spacious with ample of seating. There is a corner with bar table that was classified as reserved.

Coconut has quite a number of benefits, do you know them all?

With 2 scoops of original Coconut flavour ice cream and 1 scoop of Thai Milk Tea Ice Cream served in the coconut reminds me of the time when we visited Bangkok's Chatuchak. Toppings over here are generous in the sense that you are allow to add your on toppings at the side of the counter. We added peanuts and crunch in this case. Making a complete set with additional RM 1.00, we were offered a cup of coconut water.
Love it!

Love it!

 
 
Spending per head: Approximately RM14.90(下午茶)

https://www.umakemehungry.com/2019/09/o-master-q.html

Recently, there were so much Johor Food flashing out in my friends and my social media pages that we could not resist any further, thus this is why we were here! We searched through the place for handmade noodle and was a tad lost due to the address given, nevertheless we found the place eventually.

O Master Q is located along the same stretch as our frequent visit massage place, Bangkok Spa.

Interior was rustic, just like any coffeeshop of  Singapore in the 1980s with its flooring tiled up by 1 x 1 cm square tiles in alternating colors (Greyish blue and White).

The stall is located at a prominent spot, right in front of the coffeeshop at one corner with bowls neatly stack and a refrigerator behind its shelfing. Besides the hand made Mee Hoon Kueh, there are other noodles for your choices.

 Take a look at the master pulling off the Mee Hoon Kueh from the dough and into the pot of broth under the fire.

 Each bowl was cooked individually and takes about 3 - 5 minutes. The main use of ingredients is fried crispy Ikan Billis. The soup version of Mee Hoon Kueh tasted pretty normal to me with a home cook taste.

Black fungus are good for health and they are also added as one of the ingredients. I bet this is the first time I ever had Mee Hoon Kueh with meat ball in it.


Dried version is most preferred by the diners from our observations. Mee Hoon Kueh was served in a mixture of sweet black sauce and sesame oil with ingredients slightly different from the soup version. It was topped with generous amount of fried Ikan billis, fried Wanton Skin, cut black fungus,meat ball, "Mani" Vegetables, Kang Kong and egg.

While it may not be that fantastic till we will purposely make our way back again, I will say they are still worth the try for their traditional, old-school Malaysian style kind of noodle and a decent broth.

Among all ingredients, I find that they could have omitted the minced meat and as a minced meat lover, I'm kind of disappointed here.


On a side note, some of the websites mentioned that they open at 11 am but when I was there during that time, staff of the same coffeshop told me that handmade noodle stall will open about 12 pm. Since its located near Bangkok Spa, those who feel hungry before or after their session can take a chance to visit O Master Q Mee Hoon Kueh since its a stone throw away.
