[JB EATS] CHEOT NUN KOREAN DESSERT CAFÉ- ONE OF THE BEST BINGSU IN JOHOR BAHRU

Cheot Nun Korean Dessert Café was opened late last year (2016) and I have visited the place 2nd time including my recent visit. The Korean Dessert Café located next to Sprout (fine dining restaurant) and a short distance from City Square JB & Komtar Mall. You can take a cab, uber or grab here with less than RM8. I wouldn’t advise you to walk even though it is a walking distance from CIQ. I think I should include this in my Johor Food By Foot Guide listing.

[JB EATS] RESTORAN SOON SOON HENG BAK KUT TEH- OPPOSITE KSL MALL

Soon Soon Heng Bak Kut Teh brand is familiar for Singaporeans who often cross over the causeway and shop around KSL Mall. I was having my staycation at Holiday Villa and decided to check it out after reading so positive reviews online. My favourite bak kut teh in Malaysia is my hometown Kiang Kee Bak Kut Teh . So, how does this fare?<!–more–>

We were there around 5plus and it was not crowded and we managed to secure a table. But we were told to order first before securing the table. Once we decided what to eat, we waited for less than 10 minutes and our food served.

Bak Kut Teh with no additional ingredients

The bak kut teh is served bubbling hot in the claypot. We ordered 1 portion of bak kut teh with no additional top up ingredients and 1 portion with additional ingredients. There are few types of ingredients displayed for us to pick. So, we add on meatballs, enoki mushrooms, pig intestines and beancurd skin. Soon Soon Heng’s pork broth tasted mild in flavour as compared with other bak kut teh shops that I ever tried. The herbal taste is not strong as compared with <a href=”http://hazeldiary.com/2015/10/kiang-kee-bak-kut-teh-kota-tinggi-johor/”>Kiang Kee Bak Kut Teh</a> but still decent. The soup broth is not greasy and easy to drink though.

And of course you tiao to dip into the soup.

As a whole, the bak kut teh here is decent but not the best I had so far. If we want to top up the broth, additional charge is applicable. I personally felt it is too commercialize and we used to have free flow soup. Total bill was RM63.00 ++ with 3 drinks and 4 bowl of plain rice. I don’t think I will be back any soon unless my friends want to give it a try.
