Restoran Kin Hua @ Johor Bahru
Don’t have a vehicle but wants to eat in Johor? No problem lah! Because there are a lot of good food around Johor Bahru City Square. If you want a traditional breakfast, head to Restoran Kin Wah (锦华餐室) near Jalan Tan Hiok Nee “Culture Street” (文化街).
This is an simple, no-frills kopitiam selling old school breakfast. This place serves one of the best coffee and half-boiled eggs in my opinion. The coffee is nicely thick with the right balanced of sugar and milk. When you bring it close to your nose and take a deep breath, you can smell the distinct aromatic coffee smell. The perfect accompaniment to kopi is roti kaya with a slab of melting butter.
Unlike other coffee shops, Restoran Kin Hua uses kampung chicken eggs for it’s half boiled eggs. These are free range hens that are injected with growth hormones. We saw a big red pail of luke warm water filled with free range eggs. A staff is stationed there just to crack open the eggs.
Look at the beautiful orange hue from the yolk. It is done perfectly and also firmer in texture. Mix in soy sauce and a dash of pepper which brings out the unique aroma of eggs. It’s so smooth… Oh yes, I like to dip my roti kaya into the soft boiled eggs too.
A good breakfast is a great start. During lunch, you can come back for their nasi padang, or even join the queue for charcoal grilled banana cake at Hiap Joo bakery.
