Oc'daka 黑台客 @ Mount Austin, Johor Bahru.

Personally I like Taiwan foodies, especially if you have visited or traveled to Taiwan before.
Oc'daka, which claimed to serve the authentic Taiwanese food, in the heart of Mount Austin hipster area, same row with Warakuya restaurant.

One of my favourite drink- brown sugar milk, with great taste and choice of milk and acceptable sweetness.

O'cdaka served vegetarian friendly meals and snack- such as the pancake.

Oyster meesuah, which you should not miss if you come to Oc'daka. Really have very close taste with the one I have in Taiwan.

There are set lunch, which is much cheaper and big portion, together with a glass of drink.

A very cute design for little kids...

The fusion of sweet and salty- Special Oden with an apple in the middle of pot. The taste of apple had enrich the sweetness of soup, blend well with other traditional Oden ingredients.
Something worth to have a try when you visit Oc'daka.

"A sweet ending to a new beginning~~~"

Experience baking class @ Meet Me Bake Academy,Taman Sutera, Johor Bahru.

Baking is something magical, which turn lots of ingredients into food to eat.
As you see the thing you bake, which is good in both look and eat, it really gives a great satisfaction.
I guess that's the pleasure of baking.
Thanks for recommendation, I came across Meet Me Bake Academy, which offering a baking class on various dessert, bread, cookies and cake.
I chose to attend a drip cake making class in a lovely Sunday noon.

Baking a cake not as easy as we thought. To make a fluffy cake, there are a lot technique and trick, such as  the choice of ingredients, the sequence of mixing and how long we should mix the ingredients.

Demonstration on how to judge the cream texture.

Before the beginning on decoration and drip, I stacked the cakes in alternate layers of chocolate and vanilla sponge cake.  

I never know that whipping the cream between the cake layer and surface can be so technical and challenging. The angle on how to hold the smoothers and spatula is important to decide the beauty of the cake. It's not as easy on how to cover the cake with cream smoothly.

Well, my initial idea of decorating my cake is in dreamy light pink cream. In the end, the colour is not that obvious in the photo.
I really enjoyed the process of whipping the cream, even it really tough. Thank for the help from the teachers on guiding me throughout the class.

Well, here's my work!!! The moment when you see your cake is beautifully decorated by yourself, It really fulfill my satisfaction. ( Look not bad, and the taste is good too, hahaha!!! )

Onedeland Restaurant (又一城) @ Mount Austin, Johor Bahru.

When the Onedeland restaurant mentioned, I will think of the Boston restaurant few years ago, as the Mandarin name is still the same.
Onedeland come to JB with a brand new name and menu.
With the rebranding, Onedeland is developing a fusion of Western and Asian cuisine, which suited to the local taste.
Onedeland restaurant Mount Austin outlet is located at heart of Mount Austin. The location of the shop used to be the Station One Cafe and Restaurant.

As you step in to the restaurant, you will have a feel of falling into a garden maze, with a small florist shop at the corner. It's a great place to have a quick meal, or even for a gathering or working.

I tried the Claypot Meat Ball Soup with Sze Chuan Mala soup base. With the price of RM16.80, you can get a pot with lots of big meat balls, and some vegetable and noodles.
The Sze Chuan Mala soup is not as spicy as expected, but is very pleasant to have a sip. The taste of soup is richer when a small glass of rice wine is added.
Be careful of eating the hot meat ball, as the filling might be spill out unexpectedly.
I enjoy the meatballs a lot, and how the spill of the soup as you bite it.   

You can top up more ingredients into the claypot, such as meat slices, meatballs.....etc...

Onedeland Restaurant celebrates the Merdeka Day by having the promotion on this roasted chicken set. The 1/2 roasted chicken set with the price of RM29.90, with the slices of tomato and cucumber, and the chili sauce. The chicken is tender, not hard, which is good to eat with a bowl of rice or noodles.

This Prosperity Rice Bowl attracted my eyeballs as I read the menu of restaurant. It's very colourful in first impression. As you see clearly, the half-cooked egg yolk is putting at the center of the bowl, with lots of different types of vegetables, which give the colours and balance nutrients to the bowl.
As you mix all the ingredients in the bowl together, you will find the mix of taste, which blend into one.
There are 3 types of meats for your choice, either the chicken, beef or pork.

The Jasmine tea, which is big portion and suit to share among your friends. 

If you find thirsty in a warm weather, why not take away a drink from Onedeland??
The fruit juice is refreshing, with the slice of fruit inside your drink, with affordable price around RM7.00-8.00++
One of the thing I like the most about this fruit tea is not very sweet, which is great to be drink to quench your thirst.

Taste of Georgetown, KSL mall, Johor Bahru.

Penang is well known for the great street foods, with relatively low price. If you see a long queue at certain stall, it have to be something worth to try.
After the opening of their 1st outlet  in Sutera area, Taste of Georgetown have their 2nd outlet in one of the most happening shopping mall in Johor Bahru, KSL mall.
Just like the shop name, Georgetown is the capital of Penang state. Taste of Georgetown served authentic Penang food, and you can find the Penang food now even you are in Johor Bahru.
Taste of Georgetown KSL outlet is just located at the same floor with MBO cinema, just few steps away from cinema.

Even the restaurant is located inside the shopping mall, the way how Taste of Georgetown presented is more like a kopitiam, decorated with Penang famous mural wallpaper and traditional suitcase hanging in the restaurant. 

Have a look of their menu, you will notice the price is not like other restaurant inside the shopping mall. Most of their main dish is less than RM10, more to kopitiam price range.
Chee cheong fun (Steamed rice rolls) , one of my favourite snack, served with thick prawn paste and crispy fried shallot. It's not easy to find the chee cheong fun with prawn paste in JB. The prawn paste is with a mixture of sweetness and salty due to the prawn.

Small snack such as popiah, which can be found in Taste of Georgetown too. I like this popiah, which have lots of sengkuang wrapping inside. 

Their signature dish-- Hokkien mee, which you can change the type of noodle, such as hor fun or mee hoon. The topping also varied according to your choice, which can be either prawn or roasted pork.
My 1st try with the soup is really great, rich taste from the prawn. For those who prefer spicy hokkien mee, you can add the sambal that is served in the spoon, which trigger your taste bud further.
Don't know what to order in Taste of Georgetown?? Just pick a Hokkien mee and you will never regret.

Penang Asam Laksa, which is different the local laksa, with mixture of sweet, sour and spicy in one bowl of laksa. The white rice noodle is come with a piece of shredded fish. Well, rich asam taste overall,  even Penang Asam Laksa is not preference compare to Penang Hokkien mee. With the portion, taste and price, I would say it's worth for those Penang asam laksa lover to come and try. 

Besides some well known Penang food, you may order some traditional Malaysia food such as Nasi Lemak ( Malaysian coconut rice ) and Rendang chicken rice. 

The platter, which consist of meat roll ( lok bak) , fried tofu and fried prawn snack, come with 2 different sauces. When you have a closer look on the meat roll, you can find that the meat is still in pieces. 

With so many nice Penang food with rich taste, relieve yourself with a cup of sweet 3 layers tea, which is one of the popular local drink you can find in most of the kopitiam in Malaysia.

Talk about Penang food , cendol is something you can't miss. I still remember my visit of Penang few years ago, the famous cendol stall is surrounded with many people, having their cendol along the roadside. Taste of Georgetown have cendol too, which can be your dessert after your meal.
