[JB] Delicious Zi Char @ Restoran Ju Can Curry (聚餐特色咖喱魚頭) - CLOSED

Hubby and I have been keeping a look out for good food on our every road trip to Johor Bahru. We were very lucky and thankful to be directed to Restoran Ju Can Curry, which was highly recommended by the staff at JS Hotel during our recent stay with them.

About 5 minutes drive from Aeon Tebrau City and JS hotel, we spotted the humble restaurant along a stretch of shophouses. Business is brisk and we could see diners from every table have ordered a plate of Curry Fish Head.

Since it was our first visit at Restoran Ju Can, the staff kindly offered his recommendations. Curry Fish Head is a must-try as this is Ju Can's signature dish. For RM34, we were delighted to savor the juicy, fresh fish head dipped within the thick, yet not too spicy curry sauce. Gladys love the curry and it is very appetizing to go with rice. The curry fish head is cooked with a good balance of taste and flavour - not too sweet, salty and spice. Definitely one of the better curry fish head that we have tried so far that earned a lot of compliments from our kiddos.

At times, we have difficulties thinking of which vegetable dish to order that will suit the taste bud of both adults and children. Thanks again to the recommendation by the staff of Ju Can, we have voted this plate of potato leaf (番薯苗) as our top favourite and a must-order. Stir-fry with garlic, the taste is uniquely fragrant and tasty. It was surprisingly amazing how fast we cleaned the plate within minutes after it was served.

Another appetizing dish which our boy loves, that goes perfectly with rice. The minced meat in sweet gravy sauce spreading across the smooth, silky bean curd. Thumbs Up!

Minced meat with Bean Curd - 肉碎豆腐 (RM10)

This is one of my personal favourite. Salted egg gravy over fried chicken. Every bite is crispy and sweet within yet smooth and salty on the exterior. Another delicacy that can share among children.

The braised pork belly is cooked till very soft and tender such that with every bite, you can feel the fats melting in your mouth. Served with preserved vegetables which is not overly salty.

Sweet & Sour Pork is a very common dish in every Zi Char restaurant. However, not every place can cook up and serve a good plate of Sweet & Sour Pork dish. Restoran Ju Can is one that make its mark. The deep fried pork cubes were coated with a thin layer of batter, hence we could savor the meat and not so much of the flour. Stir-fried in a mouth-watering sweet & sour sauce enhanced the entire flavour of the dish.

Restoran Ju Can has been marked as one of our favourite Zi Char place in Johor Bahru. We have dined at Ju Can on two occasions and am very satisfied with the quality of food and service provided. If you are shopping at Aeon Tebrau City and am looking for a good dining spot nearby, you may wish to consider Restoran Ju Can for a hearty family meal.
