I'm a Johorian and proud of it. I lived in JB for 16 years before I moved to KL. What I love most about JB is the delicious local food such as mee bandung, mee rebus, satay, nasi lemak, soto, lontong, etc. So everytime I go back, I never fail to make a trip to my favorite eateries.
Last Christmas I went back to JB for 5 days and I had a lot of fun. My family and I went to two of our fav restaurants for breakfast and dinner.
1- Breakfast @ Kacang Pool Haji
Kacang pool is sort of gravy made of kacang parang (probably kidney beans in english...someone pls correct me), onions and some spices served with chopped onions and chillies, fried egg and thick toast.
Everyone should try this. They're so yummy. I still can't find it anywhere in KL. If anyone knows where I can find kacang pool in KL, do let me know =)

Susur 5, Jalan Tun Abdul Razak,
2- Dinner @ It Roo Cafe
This place is famous for it's chicken chop. Awarded as "Best Chicken Chop in Town" by The Star on 2003 and until now it is still the best to me.
Everything was delicious plus the price is reasonable. I like the ambience, great for a family gathering or special occasion. You can call to make reservation to avoid disappointment because it can be a full house during weekends.
