The Salts Kitchen | Value for Money Western Food in JB | Eat In Johor Bahru

There are many cafe/restaurants around Taman Molek and we stumbled upon The Salts Kitchen. Heard that it started from a mobile food truck specializes in Western Food and I believe business must have been good that it is now an established restaurant!

Humble and cozy space for meals

We visited on a Tuesday afternoon and the restaurant is almost full by 1230pm. More residents/workers from nearby vicinity started to come in for lunches/takeaways. Thankfully we arrived slightly earlier and our orders were served after waiting for about 10 minutes.

Prices on the menu is really value for money and you can get a main dish from RM10.90 (~$3.50) onwards! Portion of the food is generous as well!

I ordered Fried Chicken Cutlet with Salted Egg Sauce (RM16.90) and really appreciate that it came with salad, coleslaw, mash potatoes and fries! Usually only 1 or 2 sides are available and this plate has it all!

Hubby had Signature Beef Burger (RM18.90) and it is just as filling. Burger had egg, beef patty, cheese, tomato and lettuce within.

Ice Honey Lemon Tea (RM6.90) & Ice Lemon Tea (RM3.90)

Our total bill came up to RM51.30 which is less than SGD16. Definitely Value for Money! We will definitely be back to try out the other dishes :)

Din Kee Beef Noodles (鼎记牛腩面) | Best Beef Noodle in JB | Eat In Johor Bahru

Recently, Hubby brought me to try the beef noodles from Din Kee (鼎记牛腩面) at Bukit Indah as he recalls trying it before from a different location many years ago.

We found the corner shop located along the row of shop houses (about 5 minutes drive from Aeon Bukit Indah).

Shop space is neat, bright and air-conditioned. There aren't many people during our visit (probably cos we visited on a weekday).

We picked the beef noodle bowl with a mixture of all the different kinds of beef (meat slice, tendon, tripe) so that we can have a taste of everything. Price at RM15 (~SGD4.60), the serving portion is good with lots of meat within.

Personally, I prefer the dry one compared to the soup version as I like the stronger flavour and its sauce. Was delighted to see that they added peanuts in which makes the beef noodle bowl complete. Some may argue its a bit salty or flavour not strong enough etc, but I thought it was to my liking. Like the chewy tendon and the beef is tender and juicy.

Din Kee also have other dishes on their menu like fish soup and pork noodles, but I will go for their signature instead. It is one of (if not the best) beef noodle I have tried in JB so far.

Singapore's first Pop-Up Manga Library | City Square Mall | 漫画

Singapore's first Pop-up Grab-n-Go Manga Library opens at City Square Mall from now till end-August 2023! Gladys and I went to have a look today to check out the new library especially so since she is also a Manga fan.

Located on Level 4 of the shopping mall (near Daiso Japan), though the space is not big, it has about 5,000 graphic novels and comic collections. The books are new and we saw many familiar titles like Beyblade, Fairy Tail, Dragon Ball, Detective Conan, Spy X Family, Assassin's Creed etc.

Only books on the Lending section are available for borrowing. The other titles placed on the Reference shelves are only for browsing. Nevertheless, I took opportunity to borrow some comics too for my leisure read. Seems like rekindle the good old days. Entry and exit into the Manga Library is via scanning of your NRIC. Borrowing of books is also made easy with the Grab-n-Go concept. Simply pick up to 8 books and scan your NRIC prior to exit. Do ensure the titles of the books that you are borrowing are correct. Pop-up Manga Library is only open for the next 6 months so you may want to check it out if you are a Manga fan and around the area.

TANBA Japanese BBQ (炭馬烧肉专门店) @ Twin Galaxy | JB City | Eat In Johor Bahru

Our first visit back at TANBA after 3 years. Quality of food did not change much but the price has definitely increased significantly. The total amount was about RM172 per pax (~SGD53) for dinner price which is steeper. However, we really like the variety of dishes (more than 100 items) on the menu - especially the assorted marinated meat and sashimi.

We came here for New Year celebration and it still feels good to be back. The ambience and service is the same - prompt and friendly. We can pick our dishes from the tablet and we just need to sit, relax and eat to our hearts content. Assorted marinated meat grilled over charcoal taste extra sweeter.
