HAVN Restaurant & Bar @ Kulai, Johor

HAVN Restaurant & Bar is located at Kulai, it is renovated from a detached factory thus the restaurant is very spacious inside. Heard from my fren that HAVN is danish which means “Harbour”, the pronunciation is similar to “half”.

A nice place to hang out with friends for gathering or some tea or coffee, or some beer at night.  The big space and sufficient tables which cater big capacity will make you feel very comfortable even when there are a lot of ppl in the restaurant.

They have a patio for outdoor dining as well. The place is so huge that it is sufficient for holding huge private event.

Bar and Juice Counter

HAVN serves a very typical menu of western food. I think most of the food eg. something to share, burger and pizza will go well with beer in a lovely evening, so probably I should drop by for a beer in the evening next time.

Eight Secret from the Far East Tea & Cranberry Walnut Cake  (photo credit: my lovely BFF)

The tea is a mix flavour of fruity, tinge of bitterness, tinge of sourness, some flower frangrace, well a very exotic tea. Haha! That really depends on individual taste bud whether you will like it, but we kind of like it. The cake is not in the menu, but you can hand pick it near the bar counter.

The Cranberry Walnut Cake is good, the texture is firm. Fruity cranberry flavour with crunchy walnut is one good combination. Most importantly, it is not too sweet, just nice!

Carbonara

Carbonara is one of my favourite pasta (most frequently-ordered pasta whenever I go, so I can guess it can be considered as “favourite, lol!) However the carbonara here is disappointing, it was not so creamy, but watery and flavour was diluted. And I dun really like the sprinkle of cauliflower on top. After finishing my carbonara, there was still a pool of sauce in the plate.

Seafood Bake Rice

Seafood including clams, prawns, squid and etc, the rice is baked with Neapolitan sauce with cheese on top. The sauce is heavy-flavoured, quite salty. As you can see from the picture the rice was drenched in the sauce, thus this dish is disappointing too, it was too salty.

Grilled Chicken Chop (with Black Pepper Sauce)

As from the picture the chicken chop might appear to be abit too dry and hard, but in fact it is just nice. The purple cabbage salad was good. The grilled chicken chop was just an average on cafe standard.

Last but not least, my friend said the pizza there was not bad, so probably worth a try. Anyway this place is still new, they are still improving, the food might get better in the future.

Cats Cafe. Cats at their Sanctuary @ JB Town

This is a place where all cat lovers will love!  The Cats.Cafe!

(Well, im not a cat lover, but i love all small furry animals ^^)

This is a cafe where the cats are able to move around freely, you can touch and pat the cats while eating, having high tea and chit chatting with friends! (They have house rules to protect the cats, such as  you cant frighten the cats, cant chase the cats and etc. They will give you the house rules once you are seated). My friends and I gave it a nickname, the miaow miaow cafe. haha!

Exterior

The cafe is a single-storey bungalow house. (It is a bit hard to find becos it is hiding in housing area)

The menu of Cats Cafe. The cafe serves a variety of western food. The food tastes generally good. Since there are currently so many cafes in Johor Bahru, and most of them serve western food with very standard and similar taste. If others considered as average, then I would rate Cats Cafe’s food as slightly above average which means it tastes slightly better and different from the other “general & popular” cafes in Johor Bahru.

The price is on average side for cafes. When I first saw the price for platters i was shocked but the portion of the platter is for 3 to 4 servings.

This is their Signature Tokyo Chicken Chop. I like the sauce, it is sweet but not too sweet, match just well with the grilled chicken chop and my favourite, mashed potato! (apparently something different from the chicken chop offered in other cafes, provided you love sweet stuff).

老巴刹炒粿@笨珍 Fried Carrot Cake@ Pontian

IMG_20150916_185935

My favourite char kuey stall. The stall was a trishaw ^^

The char kuey is fried with sweet dark soya sauce, dried radish and some spring onion, the taste is salty and sweet!

I always like to ask the boss to put more dark soya sauce, so it tastes sweeter with slightly burnt flavour, nom nom~

我最爱的炒粿!! 从小吃到大,很有古早味,滋味非常美好!

黑的甜酱油,菜脯和些些青葱,香咸甜!每次去都会跟老板说,炒黑一点,这样会比较甜一点点。 又咸又甜又香,又有一点焦焦的,简直就是完美组合!赞!

地点是在笨珍老巴刹 (只在晚上开哦!)

Location: Pontian Old Pasar-  Jalan Bakek Jaya 2, Pontian, Johor. (open at night only)

Palsaik Koean BBQ 八色烤肉

Korean BBQ is very popular in JB and there are like hundreds shops around.

Everybody just loves Korean BBQ, especially meat lovers!

There is a relatively new Korean BBQ in town- Palsaik Korean BBQ (八色烤肉). The name of the restaurant directly points out that they offer  eight colours of pork belly for BBQ! The eight colours/flavours ranged from non-spicy to very spicy one. I personally prefer the herb one as the meat is with some light but nice aroma. The meat is fresh, vegetable is fresh, but there are not many choices on the menu as compared to other Korean BBQ restaurants around the area. The restaurant looks very clean and kind of spacious. The presentation of the food is very attractive. The food priced moderately higher than surrounding Korean BBQ restaurants, however it becomes very crowded and reservation is strongly suggested during friday and saturday nights.

We ordered the premium set of Korean BBQ which costs about RM 200++. It was shared by 4 people and it was just nice (becos we have two big eaters!)

IMG_20150711_194743_副本

Each table is compulsory to order at least for a set. Other than the sets, the choices for side dishes are very little, less than 10 items i think (mainly rice, noodles, porridge or some mushrooms).There are three types of sets.

  1. 3 colours (for 2 persons)
  2. 8 colours (for 3-4 persons)
  3. premium set (for 3-4 persons)

(photo taken from other place)

For the 3 colours, there is an option to choose either kimchi or grilled deodeok while grilled deodeok is served with every premium set ( there are only 4 pcs of deodeok for premium set, which means each person will get one only). What is deodeok? It is also called Lanceolate. is a flowering plant. It originates in East Asia. It is a variety of bonnet bellflower. The roots are used in Korean cuisine. In Chinese, it is called 沙参. Give it a try, it is abit crunchy and tasty.

I love their vegetables, they were so fresh. They provide different varieties of salad leaves to wrap the grilled pork belly such as red and green coral lettuce, romaine lettuce and mint leaves. There are also raw garlic, green chili and enoki mushroom.

阿峰肉骨茶@ 笨珍/ Ah Hong Bak Kut Teh @Pontian

每次都很爱游了泳去吃很heavy 的 bak ku teh! 所以游泳都是白费的,只是让身体更容易吸收脂肪 -_-”

每次到笨珍都很爱吃这一家的肉骨茶。肉骨茶店很多,每一家都有各自的风味。这家的砂煲肉骨茶对我来说也很好吃。常来这一家是因为

1)黄酒鸡真的很好吃,喜欢他们黄酒的香味。他们家的黄酒鸡会比较偏甜一些,汤汁是比较粘稠的

2)停车位超多,不需要走太远,座位也很多,有室内室外。室内有冷气

3)有糯米香味的普洱茶 (记得点菜时就这么说,哈哈哈)有淡淡的米香味,喜欢~

4)上菜蛮快的,不需要一直看着别人的肉骨茶,然后饥肠辘辘

5)无限制加汤,加到你喝到爽为止 (就每次吃肉骨茶一定要汤泡饭,汤一下下就干了)….有些地方加汤要加钱(加一碗就要多少多少钱,不喜欢)

6) 还有很多不知名原因,就是爱去。。。 (就是吃货其实)

IMG_20150201_120905_副本

砂煲肉骨茶,咸菜(有放猪油渣,猪油渣ho jiak!), Asam 鱼(鱼骨已经软得能直接吃下去,不用挑出来),黄酒鸡,还有一个砂煲的蘑菇(这里肉骨茶加蘑菇,蘑菇是另外放一碗的),油条
