Breakfast in Jalan Badik 1, Johor Bahru

Ipoh curry noodles RM6 and steamed vermicelli with pork patty RM9

We drove up to Johor Bahru with a friend very early on a Sunday morning to hunt for delicious food and maybe some durians. :)

Our GPS went haywire and we found ourselves in an unfamiliar territory, Jalan Badik 1. Thank our lucky stars! There were many eateries to choose from and we had a fantastic breakfast after discovering several awesome food stalls which sell dishes that are not found in Singapore.

Coconut and red bean pancakes RM1.10 each

We had our breakfast with the locals who recommended the good eats. We chatted with some of the stall owners and tried to find out more about their dishes. :)

The men liked the Ipoh curry noodles and this unique steamed vermicelli with pork patty in high stock. I will try to replicate this dish at home :)

My husband was ecstatic to find his favourite crispy pancake with fresh coconut filling that was not too sweet. There are three versions, one can order the mini rolls, Super Big pancake or a crispy one with 6 types of fillings to choose from.

Yong Tau Hu with special sauce RM7.50

My friend noticed that almost every table had a plate of yong tau hu (stuffed bean curd). He wanted to have a taste although I was feeling quite full by then. I selected some pieces of yong tau hu and watched the lady hawker prepared them and ladled a special sauce over it. The delicious sauce tasted like curry combined with sweet yellow bean sauce.

After breakfast, we checked out another coffee shop opposite the one we patronised. Will go back to try the many food stalls here. :)

    1. This crispy version is very popular in Johor. My hubby loves it. These are the different names given by different friends : Mee jian kueh, mee jiang kuih, min jian kuey,..... my Malay friends say it is similar to apam balik :)
