Best Lontong in Johor Bahru (JB)

Written by Updated ago

Lontong is among the most sought-after local delicacies in Malaysia, and Johor Bahru is known to be the best place to get your cravings fixed. It’s widely raved as a comfort meal, especially during breakfast hours. Despite the humble appearance, the rice cakes aren’t a piece a cake to make. Traditionally, they are wrapped in a banana leaf in a cylinder form and boiled for a couple of hours, giving it a mild green tint once done. Conversely, today there are cylindrical aluminium tubes being used as substitutes for leafs. Commonly sliced into bite-sized morsels, it's best consumed with gravies, lashes of spicy concoctions and assorted condiments. There are ubiquitous eateries offering this authentic dish yet for optimal gratification, we have curated the finest for you.

    If you’re a nature’s advocate and authentic Malay food devotee, this renowned restaurant is sure to be a pilgrim for you. As per the name, the celebrity on the menu is their sup tulang (bone marrow soup) but veering out for their lontong will never disappoint. The sheer deliciousness of the pillowy goodness and lip-smacking gravy as well as sambal surely stands out as a solid contender for the best seller on the menu. And why to settle for meats when you can enjoy your rice cakes with gargantuan pieces of lamb shanks that are enriched with gamey goodness.
