    With an encouraging name and charming interior, Grill Bar has been one of the most admired restaurants in town. The motorcycle portraits and ornaments embellished on ochre-coloured walls with sparsely lid bulbs sets the mood straightaway. Their grilled red wine chicken is an all-time favourite. Flawlessly executed on the grill, the bird has an attractive bronzed and crisscrossed exterior and the seasonings are spot-on. The tender chicken is paired with blanched greens and homemade gravy that charms your taste buds till the last drop.

    If fine dining and tranquility are what you’re looking for, then you’re in safe hands. The Brazzo House is among the pioneers of the food scene that have never taken a dip of fame despite the mushrooming competitors. Food-wise, the extensive menu may get you puzzling, but among the best servings here is their Char-Grilled chicken thigh, a dish that scores high on aesthetic and flavour scale. Seasoned with smoked paprika and seared to perfection, the whole chicken thigh plays host to their homemade special sauce, French fries, and sesame salad. The meat is utterly moist and the sauce offers a tinge of sweetness to neutralise the pungent punch from the paprika. Wines are good here, just seek the sommelier to get your best pairing. 

    Tips

    Truffle fries is a winner on the menu, never miss it!

You can opt for your chicken to be fried or grilled, both are equally satisfying. Plump and juicy chicken thigh with desired chars is paired with potato wedges, coleslaw and slices of cucumbers as well as tomatoes.  The bird is best enjoyed once it’s covered with black pepper or mushroom sauces that are worth mopping up the plate clean. Simplicity at its best. There is no doubt you’ll be tempted for another plate and the price says a big yes!

    A new contender to the cafe scene in Johor Bahru yet has taken the local crowd by storm with a sumptuous spread of Western delicacies, especially their acclaimed grilled chicken thigh. The chicken is deftly done with charred marks on top, coupled with mashed potato and fresh garden salad then lusciously topped with a sunny-side egg.  It has the perfect balance between savoury and texture, and sliding the wobbly egg adds a creamy element to the whole dish.

Besides, it’s revered as one of the cheapest Western fares in town, isn’t Fish and Chips for Rm5 a bargain? The best sellers here are their chicken chop, the fried version usually tops the billing but if you have your heart set for grilled chicken, you’ll never be disappointed too. Generously served, the chicken is full of flavours, thanks to the luscious charred marks and thick black pepper sauce and mayonnaise blanketing the bird. A dollop of coleslaw and crinkle-cut fries complete your indulgence.

    Distinguishing themselves from their competitors, One63 European Bistro & Bar has their own grilled chicken rendition that is anything but ordinary. A hearty portion of Caesar salad is generously crowned with slivers of grilled chicken that has the perfect balance of smoky and savoury. Rather an unusual pairing but the handful of croutons adds an element of crunch. Wrap up your meal with a glass of wine and linger a little longer in their cozy backdrop.
