Around Johor Bahru

March 19, 2009

Went driving around town and stopped by a few places. Dropped by a place opened by Singapore actor Xie Shao Guang who apparently has become very buddhist and decided to retire from his glamourous lifestyle in Singapore. Now he owns a vegetarian restaurant in Permas Jaya called 圆缘园 (garden of round fate) and also an animal sanctuary at another small town.  Had a quick refreshing drink of some ginseng chrysanthemum tea.

Went to buy some kimchee with the wife at a new Korean BBQ place that had opened around town and while we waited the lady owner served us some free drinks. Iced ginger and cinnamon tea, which was very pleasant indeed and some fried mini pancakes with red bean paste in them, quite oily but crispy outside and soft and doughy inside.

Stopped by a new and I think currently the only Burger King joint in johor bahru. A set meal there costs anywhere from RM10-14+++. Quite a pricey place considering local standards but still tastes better than the other “major burger place”

Phew! more pictures on my Flickr. Just finding it too slow to upload pics and put them in wordpress.
