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.

Fei Zhou (Restoran Famous Congee) OK Sep 26, 2016   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Chinese | Restaurant | Porridge

Fei Zhou, when translated from the chinese characters means "Flying Porridge" and the way it is pronounced, rhymes with Africa. It is just a stone throw away from the popular Sutera Mall that most of us has been visiting.

 
Fei Zhou Interior was modern with recommended and signature dishes pictures on the wall. Premises is air-conditioned and fixed with ceiling fans to cool the temperature in the restaurant.

 
Environment 

 
Beverages 
 We started with some sides while waiting for the porridge and rice. Abalone mushrooms were deep fried and with its spicy soury dipped, I found that this is something special and not yet found in Singapore so far.

 
Deep Fried Mushroom - RM 10.80 

Dont miss out famous dish like the Braised Pork with Preserved Vegetables to complement with your porridge dishes. The pork were braised till tender together with garlic gloves and preserved vegetables.

 
Braised Pork with Preserved Vegetable - RM 15.80  
With hints of peppery taste among the fragrant fried rice, these air flown salmon was cut into dices and topped the rice. Impressed by the bright orange presentation among the white, yellow and green ingredients in the rice, the taste was relatively above average. A little peeve is that the Salmon may be more on the fishy side.

 
Air Flown Salmon Fried Rice - RM 18.80  
Every pot of congee is served in the earthen claypot with a base wrapped with aluminium. The congee's depth of flavour come from the long hours of cooking the broth and rice grains were slowly cook to the texture. To enhance the flavours, spring onions as well as fried onions were added.

 
Sliced Fish Congee - RM 13.80 
Sea Bass Mix the garnishing well. The pot of minced pork & century Egg Congee was savoury with generous amount of Minced pork and egg given.

 
Minced Pork & Century Egg Congee - RM 7.20 
My bowl of congee won't be completed without these little fried fritters in it. If you are like me, mixed some of these into the porridge and enjoy the bites.

 
Fried Fritters 
 Break the egg yolk and stir the fried fritters into the porridge.

 
Congee  
It was a pleasant experience to have enjoy pots of porridge and kinds of dishes by Fei Zhou. I don't mind popping by once in a while for simple food like this.

Sangkaya - Nuts About Coconut Smile Jul 15, 2016

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)

Chaiwalla & Co Container Cafe Smile May 30, 2016   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Western variety | Café | Sweets/Snack | Special Occasion Dining

With new Cafes popping out once in a while in Singapore, it may seem a norm but I was rather surprise to see the increase number of cafes in Johor Bahru during my recent visit there.
Chaiwalla & Co Container Cafe

Chaiwalla & Co Container Cafe

 
Chaiwalla & Co. is an open air cafe which you cannot find in Singapore with tables and chairs sitting on the open ground sand and cement. Having its unique part with her working space operated out of a container. If you heard of the famous Hiap Joo Bakery that sells traditional baked Banana Cake, Chaiwalla & Co Container Cafe is just around the corner.

Enjoy a cup of beverage, either coffee or tea from Chaiwalla. Pies can be grabbed from here too if you decide to have some food to go along with your beverage.We ordered a cup of Thai Milk Tea at RM 9.30 and enjoy this refreshing drink under the hot weather which fits our plan in beating the heat. However if you are keen in toppings like pearls or jelly, they are available at additional cost.

Changman 常满 OK May 28, 2016   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Chinese | Restaurant | Noodles | Dim sum

We wanted to explore more Dim Sum places in Johor Bahru and we read of Changman. By the time we cleared the jams at the causeway, its already tea time. Besides selling Hong Kong Dim Sum, Changman offers a variety ranging from Chicken Rice to Hor Fun too.

Mistakenly order the Avocado Juice as I thought it was Avocado milkshake and only to find out that they are actually offering a low sugar level Avocado Juice. Juice tasted a little creamy and was light in taste, not too bad though.
Hmmm Avocado Juice!

Looked dry on the external but as the saying goes, do not judge a book by its cover. These carrot cakes were crispy on the outside with a soft texture under the layer. Simply love the Carrot Cake and it went very well with the accompanied chilli.

The Xiao Long Bao was something I looked forward to as they were served differently with each of them sitting on a mini aluminium tray. Be additional careful as the skin was rather thin and with soup bursting out of its case easily.

Besides the XLB, I will also give a vote to their chicken rice set. You can never get a set of chicken rice set with drumstick at this kind of pricing in Singapore.
Chicken Rice (1 Set) - RM 6.00

Poached chicken was yummy and drenched with sauce. Meat was tender and from its skin color, you can tell that kampung chicken was used.
Kampong Chicken!

Char Siew Buns were soft and packed with sweet chopped Char Siew fillings.

The green buns were stuffed with yummy golden lava or "Liu Sha" was not too bad but the skin of the buns was kind of thick with buns lacking the oozing power from its fillings. Buns were soft but was not as fluffy.

Rice Roll aka "Chee Cheong Fun" was smooth and silky, encasing a few prawns. Generous amount of soy sauce was added to elevate the taste. On top of serving them in a leaf shaped plate, greens were included as a side to make the presentation looks better.

For extra kick, add some chilli to it.

"Har Kao" aka aka prawn dumplings were quite fragile in the sense that the prawns easily fell out from its translucent "casing".

How can Har Kao exists without Siew Mai in the Dim Sum Fare? Well, they were never be left out in our orders. Siew Mai has a touch of orange crab roes and the meat was rather springy.

Overall it was quite an average fare and spread of food from Changman Dim Sum. I don't mind revisiting with other groups of friends.
