About four days ago I went to Johor with Raudhah. Initially we had no plans besides shopping but I saw a post about nice cafes around the area so I decided to Google for more. So we were quite excited because we knew what we were going to do once we arrive in JB.
We went on a Wednesday so we didn’t expect a crowd but guess what??? We were stuck in JB immigration for one hour T_T It was quite bad especially after we found out that people didn’t queue up properly and there was this uncle who macam sardine potong line. I also heard this aunty saying “oh we were supposed to queue according to the counter number”. I was like ????? you mean you didn’t know that???? It felt really bad because the queue next to us were really fast and we saw people who came before us got out first!!! Ok, let’s skip to the fun part.
30, Jalan Dhoby, Bandar Johor Bahru, 80000 Johor Bahru, Johor, Malaysia
What we got:
Hokaido Matcha, RM15 [comes with mochi balls, coconut flakes and cornflakes]
Dark Chocolate, RM11 [comes with cornflakes]
The shop were really pretty it was all pink I love it *.* The ice-cream were really good as well!! The Hokaido Matcha tastes like the Green Tea frap from Starbucks and if you love matcha I think you will enjoy it.
#2 Hiap Joo Bakery & Biscuit Factory
13, Jalan Tan Hiok Nee, Bandar Johor Bahru, 80000 Johor Bahru, Johor, Malaysia
What we got:
Banana Bread, RM5++ [small] / RM9++ [big]
Raudhah suggested this place because she had the banana bread before and said that it was really good. The cakes were all fresh from the oven. We really didn’t bother to find out about the other things that they sell because our main intention was to get the banana bread. I believe that everything else would be just as good too because the banana bread was AMAZEBALLS.
We kinda got lost while finding the bakery so I took pictures with the mural that we found along the way.
I really wanted to go to this cafe called Shakespeare [9, Jalan Trus, Bandar Johor Bahru, 80000 Johor Bahru, Johor, Malaysia] but it was closed. So we headed back to City Square and had lunch/dinner at Seoul Garden.
We just walked around the mall afterwards and of course we had to deal with the crowd at the bus terminal on the way home. There were more cafes around the area so I would probably visit the other cafes the next time we are in JB. It’s literally just across City Square so you should definitely check it out!!!
