    One of the oldest and most revered bakeries in Johor Bahru, and has always been in brisk business despite the march of time and booming competitors. The no-frills interior, timeworn signboard, rack of metal tins, coal-fired oven, and an amiable elderly man offers an experience of time travelling back before development kicked off. What tops the scorecard is their huge triangular shaped Bengali curry puffs which come in potato, chicken, beef or lamb renditions. The lip-smacking concoction is encapsulated with flaky and crispy dough that is impeccable, not a surprise as patrons leave the eatery with armloads of it. Moreover, their Roti Bengali rank among the city’s best.
