Best Chicken Curry in Johor Bahru (JB)

Written by Updated ago

Malaysians and curries are a marriage made in heaven. There may be a plethora of choices yet chicken curry is impossible to resist as there is nothing that this tawny gravy can never get along. An exemplary one should have the perfect symmetry of spices and heat level and chockfull with tender chicken chunks and potatoes. Thanks to its famed status and our multicultural makeover, we are spoilt to rotten with renditions that are easily accessible, affordable and absolutely delicious. From unassuming stalls to casual cafes, flaked with a fluffy bread or drenched over steaming rice, chicken curry takes a couple of norms in Johor Bahru that are worth each and every calorie.

    EhHe Art Cafe

    This popular haunt is widely patronised by cafe nomads, art lovers and famished foodies. And it is not difficult to understand why once you’ve stepped in the dining space which is adorned with nostalgic and cultural artworks with an eye on modern day comfort too. Food-wise, expect choices of local and Western delights, and among the pride of the kitchen is their chicken curry. The flavours are spot-on - subtly sweet, mildly spiced and you’ll certainly taste the overtones of santan while the tender meats and potatoes bring it a degree higher. Mop the bowl clean with their lightly toasted bread or add in a handful of noodles. Tame down your taste buds with their cold-pressed juices.

    Don’t be deterred by the unassuming façade of this restaurant as the dining space is habitually packed with patrons. Their signature chicken curry deserves a special mention as the gorgeous dish holds nothing back to charm your taste buds. Generously served with succulent pieces of chicken and halved potatoes, you can either opt for plain noodles or steamed white rice to tag along.

    Bunkers Cafe

    Bunkers Cafe is relatively a new kid on the block yet has been drawing decent reviews with a menu that collides local and Western fare. For the uninitiated, the first few dishes that are recommended by the courteous staff is their chicken curry with a mound of white rice. This comforting dish delivers on all accounts – ideal balance of flavours, a huge portion of meat, creamy potatoes and isn’t cloyingly oily. Absolutely what you need during rainy days.

    Dishing out assorted local fare in an interior that clamours to fill up your Instagram, Dapur Jendela certainly warrants a visit. It’s easy to spot puddles and bowls of chicken curry accompanying various dishes such as roti jala, chapatti and nasi lemak kukus.

    Toast Box

    Guessing by the name, if your think this establishment churns out a range of toasted bread, you’re absolutely correct but there’s a lot more for your palate to discover. The white-washed interior and exterior with opulent touches certainly tick the ambience box. Among the mainstay on the menu is their chicken curry. Tender chicken and potato chunks swim in the wicked gravy that is imbued with coconut milk and a clean hit of spices. The freshness of the meat is clearly a winner as it’s bought fresh daily, and if rice isn’t your jam, opt for their baguette.

    Kerala Restaurant

    Speaking of curries, you can never ignore a restaurant that specialises in banana leaf meal as curries take centre stage all the time. Once the green canvas is filled to the brim with steaming white rice and assorted vegetables, be sure of ladling over their aromatic chicken curry which is slightly spicy, in a good way and the subtle touch of coconut milk is spot-on. Do include few pieces of meat that just slides off the bone with ease, offering a lethal combination that has you licking your fingers clean.

    Kopitiam Kim

    Definitely not your typical kopitiam scene that always has a sense of rush and bustling crowd. Kopitiam Kim is a more casual and clean restaurant that offers wide-range local delicacies that are pocket-friendly. Their chicken curry is a must-try, it hits the sweet spot between a comforting and satisfying meal. Soaking up the thick gravy, the meat morsels utterly melts in your mouth sans masticating while the potatoes do not disappoint. Many patrons opt to add a smattering of noodles or dabbling in plain bread for that extra oomph.

    With a charming name, you have all rights to expect an upmarket setting with old-school touches here and there. On the other hand, the extensive menu compromises range of local and Western dishes. One of the crowd favourites is their chicken curry with white rice by the side. With a compelling and copious quantity of chicken and potatoes flooding in aromatic gravy, you would polish the bowl sparkling clean within a blink of an eye. The warmth service is another scoring point.

    One of the most talked about restaurants in Johor Bahru that churn out an eclectic mix of local and Western fare. The never-ending crowd and busy kitchen is a dead giveaway that you need to nab an empty table too. The real draw here is their chicken chop and assorted bread dishes but their chicken curry can never be overlooked. The crimson-red gravy has an amazing depth of flavour penetrating the fall-apart chunks of chicken and potatoes. The hearty bowl is paired with its regular suspect, steamed white rice and a crispy papadam. Wrap up your meal with their signature Kopi O.
