Makan Makan 020 : I am Legend

So my friend and I decided to drop by I am Legend [here] at Big Box to give the halal western food a try.

We were greeted by very friendly staffs at the counter. ❤IMG_2412

We decided to try their Creamy Salted Egg Yolk with Prawns and Chicken Chop with Fries. IMG_2418IMG_2420

The food weren’t bad. The portion was so so. We think that the creamy salted egg yolk pasta was a little too overpriced for the portion we got. I liked that the chicken chop sauce tasted homemade and wasn’t store bought. Overall, give this place a try so you can decide if this place is a yay or a nay. 🙂

While in JB -15 : Seven Oaks Bakery Cafe

Seven Oaks Bakery Cafe [here] is popular for their salted egg croissant but we were disappointed when we were told that it was out of stock. )=

They have other bakes available and we could see them quickly flying off the shelves! Everyone was almost rushing to the shelves to grab whatever they can. =l

If you love carbs, you can give this place a visit. If you’re lucky, you’d get to try their famous salted egg croissant.

Turning Twenty-Eight

This year’s birthday was kinda weird. So weird such that the lady who let me out of her vjayjay actually forgot my birthday. Sad. On a bright side, at least the fiancé didn’t and he brought me over to Fix @ HometeamNS [here].

Salted egg doughnut. Kinda weird but it was actually really delicious.

For $37, this seafood fiesta platter for two is kind of disappointing. The samba was nice but everything else was so-so.

While in JB 014 : Nasi Lemak Wak Kentut

As strange as the name sounds, the food was pretty good. The rice was delicious and fragrant. The samba was nice too and wasn’t very spicy.

We were lucky enough to be able to try their famous rice! When we reached, they announced that we are the last customer for the day as they pretty much ran out of rice. Phew~! Else that one hour ride up would be a waste.

While in JB 013 : Dendeng Station (CLOSED)

I now have a new appreciation for cheap food. I used to think cheap food = diarrhea. I was wrong. At least in this case.

Was walking around Larkin and noticed this stall!

IMG_5530

Look at the price! Damn cheap right compared to dendeng in Singapore!

70gm for less than $2!!! In Singapore, you get 100gm for $4.50! *gasps*

They cook it on the spot and cut it into relatively small pieces which makes it super easy to stuff inside your mouth. So sedap I tell you!

While in JB 012 : Sangkaya ; Nuts about coconuts

Another new kid on the block at Jalan Dhoby is Sangkaya : nuts about coconuts. The shop is right opposite Kone (another ice cream shop).

They have three different flavors to choose from. We went with signature which has 4 scoops of ice creams served inside the coconut husk. We had two scoops of coconut ice cream, one teh tarik and one matcha flavored ice cream.You then get to choose three types of toppings to put on top of your ice cream.

Our verdict, so-so. The ice cream weren’t particularly strong in flavor except for the teh tarik one. I’d suggest skipping this place and go over to Kone / Ice Cream Project to get your ice cream fix. This place ain’t really worth it.

The many times we visited Jalan Dhoby, this is one of the cafes which we never got the chance to visit. We’ve seen lots of photos of this place shared on IG and we finally had the opportunity to give it a try. IMG_5571IMG_5574IMG_3998

We had their charcoal croissant with smoked salmon. I personally think that if the croissant weren’t sweet, it  would taste much better. IMG_4009

Drop by Bev C at 54, Jalan Tan Hiok Nee, Bandar Johor Bahru, 80000 Johor Bahru, Johor, Malaysia
