I have many requests from Singapore readers for a guide to good food and cafes in JB near to the checkpoint as the old town is a haven for food lovers, cafe hoppers and street photographers. JB old town is alive with dynamism and energy - it is changing all the time with something new popping up regularly.

So, here is a simple guide and virtual tour of Johor Bahru old town - the part easily accessible on foot from the JB CIQ or City Square mall.

I Blind Tasted 5 Canned Abalone. Which is the Best?

Blind-Taste-Test-Canned-Abalone-Best-Abalone?

Codiva, a 40 year old Johor Bahru homegrown cannery claiming to produce the best abalone in Malaysia invited me to be their affiliate. I was skeptical about their claim. So, before making my decision, I decided to conduct a blind test of 5 canned abalones. If Codiva's 海中王 canned abalone come up top in the blind test, I will accept the invitation to be their affiliate. Otherwise, I would just thank them for the opportunity 😃

Yap-Kee-Wanton-Mee-Permas-Johor-Bahru-葉记全蛋云吞面

Whenever I am in a taxi, somehow we ended up chatting happily with the driver about.... what else.... but food.... As we near our destination, I often ask the driver to name his top 3 favourite food stalls. Today in JB, our taxi driver Siang named Hwa Mei ("Ah B") bak kut teh, Lai Kee fish ball noodles and Yap Kee wanton mee in Permas Jaya.
