Elaine recommended her hometown famous Stulang Laut Mee Rebus to us during one of our previous trip, however, we did not managed to try it as the place was closed during the Raya holidays. This time, on our way to Batam, we stopped by at Stulang Laut in JB to check it out.

Located on the ground floor of the grey Open University building along Jalan Ibrahim Sultan (near Zon) in Johor Bahru is where the mee rebus place is located. Its made up of simple setup, plenty of tables and chairs, open space with fan. There are other food here but mee rebus was our objective.

The noodles is covered with a thick gravy, topped with fried shallots and half a boiled egg with green chilies and lime. It is at RM3.50 for the normal one and RM5.00 for the special which have extra topping of boiled prawns.

The mee rebus was ok but I still prefer the one at Chow Yang in SS2, which is stronger in taste.

Con’t from part 6…

From Pontian, we moved on to Skudai where we want to sample the all famous Skudai Duck Mee that we have seen on Axian AEC programme. It’s said that the duck are braised in a gravy that have been braising ducks for 37 years now! Imagine that, this semangat people actually kept the gravy going for 37 years already to braise their duck.

With very high expectations, we got to Skudai Duck Mee (and narrowly missing head-on accident as blur blur me going the wrong way :P) and the owner here seems to be very friendly, he even posed for photographs but too bad Sky’s lost his pictures in JB :(. We ordered the duck with a load of others like “kai choy” (leaf mustard), braised pig’s head (chee tau pei), intestines, etc. to go with koay teow.

With the name being Skudai Duck Mee… I would think the noodles and soup here are great… but ermm… its not… the soup are not tasty as I expected… its like those duck noodles instant taste. The braised pig’s head and intestines are ok.

What is good here are the braised “kai choy” which I find to be very nice! The other good one of course its their duck, first impression the duck is a little dry but you have to dip it in the dark thick gravy at the bottom to get the good taste, after all, its 37 years old :).

We didn’t ordered full portions for everyone as most of us are still overwhelmed by stuffing ourselves during breakfast. It cost a total of about RM90.00 for everyone.

When we were at the duck mee place, we spotted this bottle of pineapple preserved, Patrick then explains that these are pineapple enzyme which are basically pineapple, lemon and sugar left to ferment in a bottle. See video below:

We decided to give Patrick’s home in JB a visit and to take a short break there. Its basically shophouses with the family’s hardware business downstairs. Some of us took an afternoon shower there while some of us got into games of chor dai di, entertaining little Wai Wai or just watching TV.

We then head to Stulang Laut to check out Elaine & Patrick’s school which is facing Singapore next to ZON. We went around to locate Restoran Woon Kiang after that which is recommended for their koay teow kia by Elaine’s mum unfortunately, they are only opened for business at 5pm. So to burn sometime, we went to ZON to shop with Sky and Ed contributing further to the Johor economy ;).

Later back at Woon Kiang, we can already see cars pouring in for koay teow kia. We wasted no time and order braised pork, pig’s head, tofu, eggs, etc. with our koay teow kia. The soup is very tasty and the braised meats are a whole lot softer than what we had for lunch. But of course, these are different food but I think everyone really enjoyed our early dinner here. I really like their braised pig’s head here, superly soft and nice to eat, the tongue is not bad too but not many people fancy it as I noticed. It adds up to almost RM90 as well with 11 of us eating. A very good place for koay teow kia, thanks Elaine & Patrick for taking us here!

Con’t from part 5…

Next morning we decided to have our breakfast on the way to JB in Pontian town as there are not much to eat for breakfast at the resort area. So we hurried to take a morning shower (which some of us skipped because of the low water pressure, I was brushing my teeth halfway and no water!) and pack up to get ready to leave. We took a group photo before leaving… Elaine, where is it?

Lam Yong are basically 2 shops connected together, the famous thing here is their coffee with the brand 8383. The brand 8383 come to place because when they started to sell coffee powder, customer often got it from the wrong shop and had problem remembering Lam Yong. So, since the family car are all registered 8383, people then tend to say look out for car with 8383 parked outside. Hence, the owner have decided to brand it 8383 and its a good strategy as its easy to remember.

There’s a table of kueh in front and the friendly owner told us to take and he will only charge what we consume but this hungry makan gang ate everything we took with Ed finishing the last standing curry puff on our table :).  Sky just love the “loh pak” kueh here which are steamed from radish and flour then fried and served with chili sauce, I think he finished the whole stack of it. The donut is surprising nice too as its made from sweet potato.

The popiah here is a bit different, as I took the first bite, there are peanuts and sugar in them! Maybe this is popiah Johor style? I don’t fancy it that much but Miharu keeps saying its so good. We also got the traditional toast and half boiled eggs. The toast comes with dripping kaya and butter in it, nice! The half boiled eggs are just nice 1/2 cooked!

With everthing being so nice, I almost forgot to sip the coffee I ordered and I think almost the whole table took coffee. As I sipped, *bomb*… I got a blow in my head… you know like the cartoon… explosion in the head, eyes wide open… well, haven’t reach there… hehe… the coffee is magnificant! I turned to Ed and say you must try the coffee, its superbly good, almost one of the best coffee I had the whole trip! Ed didn’t believe me but he gave me a “wow” look with big eyes after trying as well. Curious? It basically taste like irish coffee to me and I really can’t help but imagine there’s liquor in the coffee… haha.. that is just how good the coffee is!

We asked the boss (Mr. Ching Kim Choon) how come their coffee is so good, he explained that they only use good and high quality beans to fry and powder their coffee and they do not mix. So you get a pure coffee which gives you a superior and thick “kau” taste. You can buy the coffee powder at RM15, its double the usual coffee powder at the supermarket but its worth it! KC, hope you enjoy the pack I bought for you, please bring some to office for me in a thermos :P.

Another yummy here are their Singapore style Hokkien Mee… I have seen this before on AFC channel on astro where they went and find S$2.00 prawn fried noodles. So Patrick ordered a few plates for us to try, total is RM14 for 3 plates plus 1 bowl of curry noodles. The noodles are basically fried without dark soya sauce with eggs, taugeh, meat, etc. It is served with sambal chili and squeeze of lime juice. To me its really nice and the chili is a must to take with it.

Overall, I think we are superbly happy with our breakfast at Lam Yong and the prices are fair too. I strongly recommend this place to anyone looking for good breakfast in Pontian and don’t forget to try their coffee! A must stop for coffee lover ;).
