Tan Hiok Nee Heritage Walk & Chicken Chop at IT Roo Cafe @ Johor Bahru

#1 Welcome to the Historical Street of Johor

During my last trip to Johor, I managed to stroll along the very famous street named Jalan Tan Hiok Nee (陈旭年街) aka 文化街 meaning the Chinese Heritage Walk in Johor Bahru. 

#2 The Old School Street

It was alot quieter than Jonker Street at Malacca, but here I discovered many good food too. Just at the corner where colorful parasols are standing on the shady pavement, I found an old, long famed Hainanese Kopitiam, named Kin Wah Coffee Shop

#3 Teh O' @ RM1.80

To start off the breakfast of Hainanese affair, Teh O' and Kopi O' were a must-order before proceeding with the freshly toasted bread; Highly recommended for coffee addicts. 

#4 Village Half-Boiled Egg @ RM1.00 each

#5 Butter Kaya Toast

Then we had small butter slabs sandwiched between the fresh toast to add into the Kopi O' for rich flavours. The bread was warm, crusty yet soft inside. 

#6 Apollo Bun

A Hainanese meal wouldn't be complete without a traditional soft Apollo bun, toasted into crisp burnt perfection and laced with butter and kaya. For more than half a century, this had won hands down with its beautiful aroma coupled with pleasant taste. 


#7 Hiap Joo Bakery and Biscuit Factory 

On the direct opposite side of the road, there is a baker who still believes in making cakes using the firewood on an old style brick oven, a skill that is slowly dying out. They offer some fresh charcoal-baked bread with a variety of filling--- Sweet Coconut, Peanut with Brown Sugar, Red Bean, and more. But these were all sold off when I arrived at 11am on a Sunday morning! 

#8 Signature Banana Cake

Although simple ingredients are used, I'm truly amazed with the soft, moist banana cake. Probably because the old man follows the traditional method, using the real banana fruit without flavourings or preservatives. 

#9 Nasi Lemak Bungkus 

For a heartier Malaysian breakfast, you may opt for the all-time favourite Nasi Lemak with a choice of chicken in rendang curry, or seafood in sambal sauce. 

#10 Jalan Pahang @ Johor Bahru

After a long, chatty breakfast, we walked a few streets across to Jalan Pahang, where another half-a-century-old eatery tucked in. I noticed that there were a few old school cafes and bars along the stroll, some only opened its doors during the night. 

#11 Menu of It Roo Cafe

Our next shop was It Roo Cafe, a very renowned Hainanese cafe with its tagline of "The Best Chicken Chop in Town". The humble shop was tucked in a corner lot along the row of 1950's shops. Parking was rather tricky there, and we took a good 15 minutes before we managed to secure some seats in the cafe. 

#12 40 Years History of It Roo Cafe 

#13 Exterior of It Roo Cafe 

#14 Interior of It Roo Cafe

The simple, clean interior with plenty of faded photographs hung on the wall simply reminiscences the nostalgic yesteryears.

#15 Golden Fried Crispy Chicken Chop with Mushroom Sauce @ RM13.00

This dish was the main reason we were there for. The classic Hainanese chicken chop tasted as good as it looked, so thick and juicy. Thumbs up to the homemade potato wedges which delighted me with its firm texture instead of the usual mushy type.

#16 Golden Fried Crispy Chicken Chop with Black Pepper Sauce @ RM13.00

Eventhough black pepper was the main spice, it did not overwhelm the palate and still managed to retain the fresh flavour of the succulent chicken fillet. 


#17 Grilled Chicken Chop with Mushroom Sauce @ RM13.00

As a healthier option, the grilled chicken chop was just as great but it didn't provide the crisp touches on the exterior so I still prefer breaded chicken chop to grilled ones. 


#18 Signature Root Beer Float @ RM5.50

Verdict:
1. Frankly, the quality of chicken chop is the best I've tried. Charcoal-baked buns are simple yet awesome. However, for Hainanese food, I prefer those in Penang. 
2. Recommended: Roti Kahwin @ Kin Wah, Golden Fried Chicken Chop @ It Roo and Banana Cake @ Hiap Joo
3. Pricewise, most of them are comparable to those in KL, but of course better value for money, considering the portion and taste.

Petite Patisserie @ Shaftsbury Square, Cyberjaya

GOOD NEWS FOR CYBERJAYA-ians! 

*excited* 

I have been staying in Cyberjaya for almost 3 years now, and Petite Patisserie is the first cake house opened within the vicinity of the students and corporate. Now we are spoilt with more choices, and goodbye to the boring selections at Secret Recipe. 

#1 Entrance of Petite Patisserie 

Strategically tucked within the front row of Shaftsbury Square, it is very noticeable, and only a few feet away from Chatime Cyberjaya and Starbucks.


#2 The 3 Flavours of Mousse Cakes

Originated from Singapore under the mother company, The Patissier, Petite Patisserie specializes in producing premium quality mousse cakes.

Uniqueness of the cakes:
1. Snap Freeze under -30°C, the freshness can be preserved up to 6 months, yet you can enjoy the goodness of a freshly baked taste of the cake.
2. Trehalose: A natural Japanese ingredient to maintain the moisture of the cakes.
3. Freshness Seal: Each cake comes in an innovative packaging, retaining its moisture and freshness.

#3 Chocolate Dream @ RM8.50 

My number one vote goes to this rich combination of smooth Belgium chocolate mousse layered with chocolaty sponge and French hazelnut praline paste. Best for those with a sweet tooth to enjoy the luscious, melt-in-the-mouth texture. Delicious! 

#4 Mango Madness @ RM8.50 

If chocolate is a tad sweet for you, another best-selling cake that may suit your taste is this piece of firm yet smooth mango mousse layered with vanilla sponge. Bursting in robust mango flavour, every mouthful gives a distinctive refreshing taste that keeps you reaching for more.

#5 Strawberry Delight @ RM8.50 

The sweet tartness of the strawberry mousse is slightly overwhelming for me, nonetheless the sourish flavour is well-balanced with the layers of light, airy vanilla sponge. 

#6 Plain Whole Cake (1/2 kg) Without Topping @ RM49

Along with the tagline "Let Your Imagination Run Wild", Petite Patisserie allows you to buy a cake of the flavour of your choice and DIY--- Decorate It Yourself

#7 Decorations of The Cakes

The small packets of deco come in 3 for RM5, while the fondant cake topping varies in many designs, shapes, colors and price tags. Since my left brain is getting a little rusty, the friendly staff there are more than willing to guide me towards my ideal cake decoration.

#8 Pre-made Whole Cake (1/2 kg) with Toppings @ RM60

I can't bake a mousse cake, but it's nice to have myself customizing it for someone special during birthdays and special occasions. Since the cakes are highly customizable, so your cake and your friend's will not look the same anymore! 

#9 Nutritional Facts of The Cakes

Something I notice on the box is the clearly stated list of ingredients and a detailed nutritional facts which I can't find it in any cake house. Simply feel safer now that I know what I'm feeding myself with.

#10 Interior of Petite Patisserie

Whether it's the regular mousse cake or home-baked pastry, it's great to sit down with one under the vibrant ambiance, to wash down a meal, or just satisfy your sugar craving.

#11 Slices of Mousse Cakes

Petite Patisserie is simply the top option if you want to order mousse cakes. Serving them as chilled as possible gives the best sensation, as every bite feels like a whole scoop of ice cream! 

#12 Creme Brulee @ RM3.90

But I'm also lured by the yummy French dessert. The rich custard base is not as creamy as I'd prefer but it's a very nice comforting food when the cold adds to the texture and enhances the contrast to the slick, candy crack of the melted sugar on top.

#13 Cream Puff @ RM2.50

A delicious aroma wafts out within the oozing custard cream as I pop a chilled light-as-air cream puff into my mouth. The cream is lightly sweet, not overly greasy like the more typical cream puffs. However, if the cold custard pairs with warm puff, it could be a winning taste.

#14 Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee

For coffee enthusiasts, here you can enjoy one of the most expensive and sought-after coffee in the world. Lightly roasted, it has a very mild flavour and slight hint of bitterness, without overshadowing the subtle sweet desserts.

#15 Assorted Cookies @ RM16.90 each

It makes an ideal place to shop for cookies and festive snacks as you can see neat rows of jars filled with an array of cookies at the entrance of the shop.

#16 Map to Shaftsbury Square 

Another thing to add on! Petite Patisserie does caterings for parties and weddings, so you can place your order in bulk to obtain special discounts.


Verdict:
1. It is definitely a delight for those having a thing in between cake and ice cream. Be it a cake for birthdays, anniversaries or weddings, I buy the idea of surprising my loved ones with my "artwork" :P
2. Recommended: Mango Madness and Chocolate Dream
3. Pricewise, the half kg cake is filled compactly with high quality mousse, and worth every penny you pay.
