Jalan Sisi for supper and Jalan Yahya for breakfast. Running in parallel and separated by a few streets between them, one can really spend a day in Muar without fear of getting hungry. Lunch is no big deal as well, the infamous 贪吃街 is just sandwiched between them, 真的是从头吃到尾.

The 面煎粿 I had today is somewhat similar to what is sold in Singapore, filled with grounded peanuts and sugar as its core, sandwiched with a thick & fluffy pancake. No red bean paste, no coconut shreds, just plain old traditional peanuts and sugar.

传统古早味面煎粿的制作过程,依然被这富有浓浓乡情味的城镇保留着, 并没有被时间的流失而逐渐的迷失了方向.

Price: 6.5/10
Service: 6.0/10
Conclusion: Taking a walk in the morning of Muar town, one seems to be transported back 10-20 years. Breakfast today is somewhat unusual, putting negligible focus on the food but more of embracing and enjoying the lifestyle one would not typically experience in urbanised Johor Bahru. Savouring my food, it is not the be all and end all of a food review but at times, the deeply rooted cultural aspects behind.
