Best Fried Fish in Johor Bahru (JB)

Written by Updated ago

Sliced to blocks, fillets or the whole portion itself, who doesn’t love their fish to be hurdled out from piping hot oil with a crispy outer layer and pleasantly flaky core? Blessed with a multicultural mashup, varieties do not only come from fish breeds yet the subtle preparation from each cuisine. Served on a banana leaf along coconut rice and sambal, masala-infused fish cubes, crowned atop noodles or just fried to perfection on its own, it’s all here in Johor Bahru. Your notion about this staple dish is about to change, for good.

    Restoran Muthu

    This humble restaurant has been the best bet to satiate banana leaf rice with a reasonable price-tag. Once the huge verdant leaf is graced up with colourful sides, white rice and curries, you’ll constantly see crimson-red morsels accompanying the meal. Say hello to their boneless fish which is marinated with rich spices then fried to a firm outer layer. Spear the bite-sized cubes with the mildest touch to unveil the moist flesh within. Best massaged with rice and curry, or delved on its own.

    Famous Dart Noodle House

    Fish is utterly versatile and has that oomph to take any dish to a whole new level, especially the fish head noodles, a stellar meal in Johor Bahru. This renowned restaurant has been a magnet for those who crave a hearty bowl of noodles drenched in a broth that is infused with evaporated milk and topped with shriveled golden-brown fillets as well as a sprinkle of herbs. The fillet is firm, flaky and downright enhances the flavour in the bowl.
