Enjoy your Western Cuisine @ 1875 The Mex, Plentong, Johor Bahru

I'm quite familiar about Mexican cuisine, as I have Mexican classmates when I studied overseas few years ago.
One of the factors making Mexican food so irresistible, is because of it's a blend of different cultures. Its distinct blend of spices, seasonings and vibrant colors create a beautiful presentation.
Corn is one of the main ingredient, which you can find in Taco and Nacho. There is a lot of health benefit about the corn.

If you are finding a great place serving great Mexican food in Johor Bahru, come and try this newly open restaurant- 1875 The Mex.
It located very near to Tesco Extra Plentong, previously the shop known as Uncle Tom's Tavern.

The owner of 1875 The Mex, the lovely couple- Shawn and Gail, decided to bring the great western cuisine to Johor Bahru. Shawn has vast experience in working as chef in big-chain hotel, while Gail is helping him to operate the restaurant.
Taco - a popular Mexican street food consisting of tortilla folded around a filling, which is the great start if you don't know what to eat at 1875 The Mex.
The meat is marinated with rich flavoring, not salty, but a kind of nature seasoning which make it very delicious.

Personally, I highly recommend the nacho, which is served together with beef-minced and fresh avocado mesh and sour cream on the top of nacho. If you are avocado lover, this nacho is something must-try. The avocado has make this nacho special.

There are chicken wings, which cooked in Chipotle Pineapple and lime. I can feel the sweetness from the pineapple, well match with the chicken wings.

Besides the starter, there are variety of main courses can be chosen.
Personally I really like their burger. As you see clearly what the ingredients in between, including sauteed mushroom cheddar cheese maple grilled bacon balsamic & onion jam beef patty & garlic aioli.
It's really attractive to see the cheese melted on the top of bacon. The flavoring used by chef make the burger really juicy.
The St Antonio Burger

Try their salmon too, which cooked with lime and chili butter. The flesh is soft and fresh.

I tried their ribeye steak in a level of medium. It's really thick and firm, but not tough.
It's really a succulent steak, which is great match together with the vegetable and potato as the side dishes.

Well, to my surprise, the chef makes the dessert too by himself. Both mud pie and apple pie are in the acceptable sweetness, which make me want to have more after a bite.
The chocolate pie beneath with cookies, the cake and thick chocolate layer on the top.

Overall, what I like the most about this restaurant will be their ingredient choice. This restaurant may not have the fancy interior decoration compare to other fine dining restaurant, but they really concern and choose the best, freshest ingredients to cook their food. You just need to pay much more less than some fine dining restaurant in JB, and you still can get quality western cuisine.

Opening Promotion!!!
Take note of their FB page for more promotion. Currently the restaurant are having set lunch meal, and also the coffee promotion. If you are daily coffee drinker, why not visit  1875 The Mex, they are offering limited promotion RM50 for 50 cups of coffee in 30days. That means RM1 for 1 cup of coffee. Amazing deal!!

Japanese Buffet High Tea @ Lada&Clove, Trove Hotel, Johor Bahru

Well, I visited Trove Hotel again after my 1st visit. You may refer my last month post about Halba buffet in Trove.

This November I visited again as Trove Hotel come out with new theme of buffet high tea- Japanese Feast!!
First came to my mind, Hurray, unlimited sushi!!
From various maki & nigiri with different ingredients, such as Tamago ( egg) , California, Kani (crab stick), Kappa (cucumber), Ebi (shrimp), Tempura, Avocado, Ebiko(shrimp flakes), and Inari ( Rice in Tofu). 
All the maki and nigiri are with cooked topping ingredient. There is no raw ingredient.

My favourite Edamame as appetiser to kick start of my Japanese feast ~~~ 

There are variety of vegetable tempura, which deep fried and coated with thin batter. If you are vegetarian or vegetable lover, don't miss this section, with brinjal, pumpkin,oyster mushroom, green capsicum and carrot, turn into the tempura.

Tips of eating Japanese buffet: 

  • Try to have a bowl of Miso soup, before eating the food. It's great to warm your stomach, before starting a heavy meal. 
  • Try to have tempura first before the maki and nigiri. Maki and Nigiri have a lot of rice, which may make you feel full easily. Try to have edamame, salad and tempura, then only the maki and nigiri. 

You will enjoy more about the buffet if you eat in the right sequence. 

For main dish, there are still have some common local food, with fusion of Japanese delight.
For noodles, the chef uses the udon instead of normal noodle, and stir-fried in a local way.

Not forget about the tofu, which is a very common in Japanese food. The chef serves the tofu with dashi stock, ginger, shredded seaweed and daikon radish. Tofu is soft, with slightly crispy fried layer. 

Compound Salad

Again, remember to keep some space for dessert. Besides the common cakes and fruit as we see in every buffet, I found some special dessert, which you may interested to have a look.
This white chocolate with dried fruit attracted my eyeballs when I go around the dessert section.

Variety topping of doughnut, which enlighten your day~~~

Dorayaki-- One of famous Japanese street food, which two pancakes sandwiching sweet ‘anko’ (sweet bean paste).

Drink of the month. Try this refreshing hazelnut drink, to relieve the thirst after eating. It's slightly sweet when mix with the chocolate syrup.

Chinese Cuisine Buffet Promotion @ Qing Palace, Pulai Spring Resort, Johor Bahru.

What kind of table you would prefer in your home?? I guess most Chinese will tell you they prefer round table.
A round table allows people to eat facing each other. It also means that when seated at a round table every one is equal.Round table is a symbol of reunion. 
Most of the Chinese Family will choose Chinese cuisine for reunion lunch or dinner, the price for most Chinese cuisine in Johor Bahru will be nearly RM 1000 per table. 

Qing Palace Restaurant, which located inside Pulai Spring Resort, Pulai area, about 35 minutes drive from Johor Bahru town area, offers a limited time promotion of Eat All You Can for up to 80 different Chinese Cuisines, from soup, vegetable, chicken, duck, prawn, fish, seafood, beancurd and desserts. With one price, you can eat as much as you can. 

One of the dish which make me amaze is the Australian fresh asparagus with garlic. This is not a common vegetable to be served in Chinese restaurant. The taste is very natural , without much seasoning, only fry with the garlic. The spear is fresh, which give a deliciously crunchy texture. One of my favourite among the vegetable choice in menu.

One of the common way of Chinese cooking, using the claypot, which preserve the warmness of food for longer time.

Another pick among the menu will be Peking duck. The texture of duck is soft and tender, marinated with savory sauce, which make skin of duck very tasty.

A mixture of different ingredients including the mushroom, tofu,egg and etc.... , which can be found in this soup. A good start of the meal, which warm your stomach before you eat the others food.

A complete Chinese dinner must have a fish, which to symbolize the wish for more in the sense of good luck and good fortune. There are 3 choice of fish- Red snapper, Seabass and red pearl, with up to 7 methods of preparation. I tried the steamed with Asam sauce. The asam sauce is rich, well match with the fresh seabass.

There are variety of seafoods for choice, such as prawn, cuttlefish and eel. Too bad there is no crab in this promo ( Well , the price will not be RM 65 if got crab , haha~~ )
