Johor Bahru Foods and Cafes Guide By Foot JB

[2017] JB Foods & Cafes Hopping Guide By Foot | Johor Bahru

[Updated on 4 January 2017]

My previous Johor Bahru Food Trail V.1 & V.2 were gone due to hosting migration issue. So, I am posting this new post that I have compiled since last year. Hope you guys find it useful when you are going across the causeway, Johor Bahru for cafe hopping and foodtrail.

All the restaurants and cafes mentioned here are by foot (10 minutes walking distance)  and easily accessible once you step out from Johor Bahru custom or City Square Mall.

Before I start off the list, here is the summary in table form :

DIRECTIONS
1 After you clear the Woodlands Checkpoint, walk towards City Square Mall and look for McDonalds at Level 1.
2 Exit the entrance and turn left and walks straight until you see Hong Leong Bank and cross over. Continue to walk few minutes and you will see Kam Long Fish Head Curry on your left or maybe the long queue outside the shop.
3 If you want to walk to the cafes, there are currently constructions going on and it blocked the shortcut of cross over after you exit McDonalds. So, if you are going to have fish head curry as first stop, you can continue to walk straight until the end and cross the road. You will see OCBC Bank and Jalan Tan Hiok Nee is next to it.
4 If you are not planning for the fish head curry, exit at McDonalds as well but cross to the opposite side of the road before the construction. Walk towards the Hindu Temple, Sri Raja Mariamman and you will come across like ‘Little India’ streets. Turn left to the cafes listed in the table form below and turn right to Faculty of Caffeine.

Located at level 2 of a coffeeshop, Coffee Valley offers an extension varieties in their menu. So, besides coffee and teas, you can enjoy desserts such as quesadillas, waffles and croissant. I personally do not enjoyed their waffles as I find it lack of taste and texture. As for the rest of their foods, you might want to visit and share with me then. Perhaps their savory dishes are better.

There is collection of vintage items displayed in the café. Brunch items are available before 12:00PM and main courses are available after 12:00PM. I tried the Egg Benedict but it was kinda disappointing with its’ overall taste. The double cheddar cheese was overwhelming and we couldn’t taste the hollandaise sauce. The egg yolk was overdone as we were expecting egg yolk flowing out once we cut open. Nevertheless, the guava juice does not fail us.

It is also located few steps away from The Replacement Lodge & Kitchen. The ice-cream served here are milky and chunky. There are few options of flavours to choose from the menu. Once you place your order and payment at the same time, the staff will start to prepare your order on the spot.

A month old cafe which took over the previous cafe, Table for Two is just few doors away from Pace Cafe. Perhaps due to the black and dark colours of the paint was not easily identified. There is no much changes on the interior design of the cafe except the menus. The cafe here serves brunch, lunch and dinner. They recommended their signature dish, Curry Chicken with a plate of rice RM11.50 was homely feel taste. Although the curry taste wasn’t thick enough but the chicken and the potatoes were tender and soft. It is best to enjoy during rainny days.

An addition hipster café along Jalan Dhoby, Johor Bahru was spotted.

Probably the FIRST specialized Bingsu Shop in Johor Bahru. Seol Won was officially opened on 19 June 2016 at JB City Square Mall. They specialize in bingsu and toasts. There are quite a range of flavours to choose from. We had Matcha (Green Tea) Bingsu RM22.90 and was told that their green tea is imported from Korea. The shaved ice was fluffy and the matcha flavour was not strong though. As for the serving size, it is much smaller as compared with Singapore version. We also tried the toast. The best seller toast were injeolmi and marsmallow injeolmi toast but we decided to try Cheese Injeolmi Toast RM11.90.The toast was drizzled with honey syrup to give a tint of sweetness. It was pretty good though.

We checked out their signature milkshake, Kinder Bueno Shakes, croffle and Irish hot chocolate during our recent visit. The irish hot chocolate serves with chocolate ganache cube on a stick with warm milk and marshmallows that reminds me of the Mork Chocolate in Melbourne. Chocolate lovers? Definitely a place to hang out with some nice instagrammable shots in the cafe interior as well. The best part is that no service charge and GST applicable at this moment.

  3. Hi Hazel

    Thank God I chance upon your article. Have been searching around for directions from City Sq to Hiap Joo bakery and Kam Long fish head. I was told the construction made it very confusing. But now with your instructions guide, it certainly made it so much easier. Thank you sooooo much! Will definitely be back to read more of your recommendation 😉

  4. Appreciating the time and effort you put into your website
    and in depth information you present. It’s good to come across a blog every once in a while
    that isn’t the same outdated rehashed material.
    Great read! I’ve bookmarked your site and I’m including your RSS feeds to
    my Google account.

  5. Thanks for the great effort in putting the details into this post. I’d like to point out that Hua Mui has free Wi-Fi, the password is pinned in a corner of the wall behind the cashier on level 1, not v obvious I must say. 😝

  6. Hi there. Mind to check B.L.O.C. (Banana Lounge Café) formerly Pisang Café @ Block A, #1-40, Southkey, JB.

  7. Hey there! Really love this post. But may I just enquire? Are all these food places situated in one area? It’s all around Jalan Tan Hiok Nee, JB. So is right to say that they are all walking distance from each other? 🙂

    As I would be exploring these places, so it’ll be great to know if they are near each other 🙂

  8. Howdy! Someone in my Facebook group shared this site with us so I
    came to give it a look. I’m definitely enjoying the information. I’m book-marking and will be tweeting this to my followers!

    Excellent blog and great style and design.

  9. I always travel to JB but dare not get out of city square.
    Is it safe to travel around for us (2 ladies & 1 old folk also lady who walk very slow).

    1. Hi Teresa

      Yes just that you need to be alert of your surroundings. It also depends which part of JB you want to explore. You can always take Grab for further direction.
