Best Asam Pedas in Johor Bahru (JB)

Written by Updated ago

Fancy something served piping hot, pretty to look at and tugs your heart straight away with bold flavours? Say hello to Asam Pedas, a renowned dish all over Malaysia and Indonesia. For the uninitiated, it’s a fish stew cooked with tamarind (asam) juice, chili paste, and range of spices, then flooded with assorted vegetables, and commonly paired with a mound of white rice. The sour and spicy notes just wave on your tongue, affirming it's not your regular stew fix. There are a dime and a dozen in Johor Bahru, spreading mediocrity massively. Drop the worries, we have carefully curated the finest ones that make its way to your dish of fame.
