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.

Excellent local zhi char

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!

Bad service, overrated food

Really bad service by the male waiter(the only guy not in uniform). Ordered us rudely to our seats.

When dishes arrived, a friend asked him what was the ingredient used in the vegetable, gave a nonchalant reply and even questioned us sarcastically if we even knew what was it.

$80 for 4 dishes is really not worth it in my opinion, overrated. Not recommended.

Food too expensive

The dishes are too expensive not worth the value. Especially the plate of snake beans and lotus root costs S$18.00(it is just French beans and celery with a few pieces of lotus root as toppings). All five dishes that we ordered are $3 to $5 more than other Zhi Cha stall. I definitely not going to patronize the stall again.

yep. it's true. jerry baastian himself told me to eat here. d*** tasty food. the vegetables are locally sorced,organic from the Cameron highlands. it's like some alchemy the chefs do in this geylang back alley that creates imaginative and delicious fare. I don't see this stuff on other menus. not one sizzling bean curd. no Taiwan sausage. just delicious vegetables. try the fermented black bean pork belly. made me forget lechon. made me forget bacon. d***. the drinks man is amazing. so fast. gets exactly what you want in under 2 minutes. oh, btw, this place is in a scary a** alley in geylang. you can viagara on the corner. prostitutes always walk by. the food so good, I bring my baby girl. good luck!
