Malaysia Johor Bahru Day Trip III

Saturday, March 19, 2016
My third post on Johor Bahru. This trip was taken last November and it took me four months to blog about it. Slow, I know but it's never too late. No better way to start my morning with Restoran Kin Hua's typical Chinese breakfast set of toasts, eggs and tea. The eggs were huge! A pretty standard meal, though I much prefer the ones from Yakun. Queued for the famous banana cake from Hiap Joo Bakery that everyone was raving about. Sadly, with customers buying more than five packets at once, the waiting time took really long and it's totally not worth that forty minutes. What stole my heart was the coconut bread! Bought from a separate queue (yes, there's two different queues), the coconut bread was baked fresh, hot from the oven and the coconut filling is just OMG! Probably the nicest ones I've tasted in my life. 

Took off to KSL to get my nails done before returning back to IT Roo for lunch. They claimed to have the best chicken chop in town but I beg to differ. Once, I had a chicken chop from Roost Juice + Bar and that became my favourite. Unfortunately, it ceased operation. Our final stop was at Koone. Pretty new (four months back) to the cafe scene in JB, the exterior and interior were gorgeously painted in pink. I love it, however, the ice cream could do better. The dry ice effect was great, so does the mochi balls but soft serve ice cream was never my thing. 

More and more cafes are appearing in Johor Bahru and the best way to get to there from City Square Mall, is to walk. If you are coming from somewhere further, grab a cab, which is the best transportation. Below are a map and an ultimate (almost) guide to the cafes in that area.
