Craving for tze char from Johor Bahru but unwilling to travel all the way there? The solution is to patronise JB Ah Meng restaurant at Geylang Lorong 23, which whips up dishes that are typical of the tze char style in Johor Bahru.
This has been one of my favourite local zhi char stall.
The san lou bee hoon with crab and fried lotus with veggie is a must try.
The black pork is good as well.
There is not much ambience as the zhi char is located in an alley. Don't be scared off by it!
Dodgy back alley seating? Check.
Weird smells all around? Check.
Waistaff who don't give a rat's a**? Check.
The food is authentic, rustic, wonderful. The speciality is the "pancake beehoon" which did not disappoint. Love the honey kumquat drink as well. We will keep coming back and ordering different things each time.
As for the service - at a place like this it's either "one of a kind" or "one kind" hahaha! I wouldn't complain because it is expected.
Come just for the true Malaysian food and forget about everything else ok! :)
Very good Malaysian local food. My 2nd visit with fresh crab but wish to have bigger Sri Lanka crabs *haha!* other dishes are great in taste but u need patient to wait for the chef to cook one by one. Every trip need to wait best to go before 6pm or after 9pm avoid crowd. Do ask one of the friendly "auntie" she is the one and only "smiley" helpful lady u will get to see :) she can recommend u the famous and must try dishes!
