Lunch @ Johor Bahru

Jin Yun Yong Tau Foo - 金运釀豆腐 is a must try stall which is located at level 2 of another shopping complex which is joining to City Square, Johor Bahru though the bridge walkway. (you can get there on second level entrance near the washroom and telephone booth which at a corner opposite Waston & McDonald) During lunch hour, the stall is always packed with customers whom love their handmade yong tau foo.

You can pick any items from spread, which cost between RM0.50 to RM0.90 to go with either noodle/rice in dried or soup version. The soup broth is very light and refreshing leaving a sweet scent in your mouth that makes you craves for more. And all these sweetness does not come from adding of MSG or sugar because it does not leave you with thirst after consuming their food.

The Tofu taste soft and smooth with a generous amount of filling that consists of fish paste, minced mince, salted fish and seasoning which makes it so delicious. So if you are planning to shop at City Square during this school holiday, perhaps you can give this a try.

At the food corner, we also spot this "Zhen's Malaysia Pontian Wanton Noodles - 珍 . 云吞面" which is also commonly found in most of Singapore food centers or coffee shop. Since I am a Wanton Mee lover, I decided to order a bowl to try out their version compare to ours in Singapore.

So far, I have tried a few "Zhen's Wanton Noodles" stalls from different parts of Singapore and I find that this one that located in Johor taste rather different from what we have over here. The texture of the noodles is indeed better with their chilli sauce and the wanton also taste different. We all agreed that the Singapore version of "Zhen's Wanton Noodles" is rather salty and not as good as the one over in Malaysia.

Other than the above, we also ordered another plate of "Thai-style Char Kway Teow" from another stall at the end corner. Although the taste of this Kway Teow dish is very fragrance and delicious, but we find it rather oily for our preference. But if you don't mind those "oil" you can actually tried this out which you might like it because the Kway Teow is very nicely fried with that special "wok fragrant" that we can hardly find in Singapore these days.
