Trust me. If you cannot control your appetite, living in JB would surely put a "heavy" impact on your weighing scale. Abundance of food almost everywhere. Good and delicious food. Its a wee bit on the expensive side compared to Port Klang but the food is simply yummy. Its good that we run cos we can eat and burn them off. This should be the tagline to intice people to run. Eat all you want, just run to burn it later!
They have their own "food terms" that an outsider need to learn, fast. Haha. There's roti canai biasa, roti telur, roti tampal and roti tampal goyang (I wonder apa yang dia goyang??) and murtabak biasa, special, super and hyper! Dont order a super if you are eating alone. Its HUGE. We ordered 2 supers and luckily for us, I saw him flipping the bread and got a shock! Its easily 9" by 4", quickly changed our ourder to only one and yet we had a hard time finishing it! I cant imagine what a hyper is!! They also have teh tarik gajah, again you have to share, unless you have a huge tummy!
Sam & Sasha brought me to Restaurant Singgah Selalu. It has a vast selection of dishes for lunch. You can order ala carte as well. Ooh do try the fried baby squid. Crunchy, spicy and simply yummy! You will be spoilt for choice and will have a hard time choosing what you want to eat! This was where I was introduced to teh tarik gajah! Sam & Sasha shared and I can only looked in awe. They fed me till I cant eat anymore :) I am yet to check out the places that Shuk recommended, putu piring place, laksa, and loads more.
We are yet to explore on our own to find our favourite eating place, things to do and to see. Lots of things to do once I move here permanently. I actually am looking forward to stay in JB. I just hope there will be more friendly people to meet and be friends with compared to the ones I have in my area. They suck, big time. Uugh.
