Best Fried Rice in Johor Bahru (JB)

Written by Updated ago

Fried rice is a good old friend. Food trend and Instagram-craze dishes may come and go, but few days without rice will have us niggling for some. Therefore, restaurants without fried rice on the menu aren’t actually Malaysians’ cup of tea. What not to love about fried rice? Far-flung varieties, never a worry to the wallet and easily accessible. Conversely, there are a dime and a dozen, spreading mediocrity rampant and we scoured alleys and nooks, high and low, and then finally rounded-off the finest fried rice that lives in your memory forever.

    How often do you start your day with fried rice? We rarely do but for the patrons of this well-known eatery its a part of their daily routine. Straight off the blistering wok to your table, their Kampung-style fried rice is loaded with slices of sausage, fresh prawns, egg and handful of anchovies. Each mouthful just pumps in with savoury, chewiness from the meat morsels and a tinge of brininess of the anchovies. Wrap up your meal with their signature Kopi O and gleefully gear up for the day.

    This cozy restaurant is among the best places to immense in authentic Thai cuisine. Aside from Tomyam and Pad Thai, when it comes to rice, Pineapple Fried rice needs no introduction. Soul Thai’s version soulfully showcases how an exemplary one should be, thick and fragrant rice generously loaded with chunks of pineapples, prawns and finished with cashews and raisins at the peak. To score on an artistic scale, the whole dish is wedged onto the fruit itself. For a dose of heat, dabble in their chili concoction.

    Ask any locals where to scarf down the finest chicken chop in town, you’re sure to be shown the route to this renowned joint, and the bird does live up to the reputation. Conversely, if your belly begs for fried rice, their Chinese-style fried rice is an absolute bomb, despite its humble appearance. Served piping hot, the rice tows a smoky aroma and copiously thumped with chicken meats and prawns, and best enjoyed with their sizzling sambal. If you miraculously still have some space, why not embrace the chicken chop too.
