2 Meals at Johor Bahru City Square Shopping Mall

2 Meals at Johor Bahru City Square Shopping Mall

Last week, I was pass-by City Square due to my personal stuff and crossed over to Singapore for several day. For those who goes Singapore very often, City Square is not too strange for them as it is the shopping complex just next to the Immigration Complex of Malaysia. Therefore, I was settle my daily meal at City Square, where I consider it is a strategic place to have meal after immigration clearance or before immigration. This post will featured up 2 restaurant/cafe where I think is nice to recommend to all.

Robins Portuguese Chicken
Robins Portuguese Chicken is located at second floor of City Square, occupied a corner of the food street with its bright colour tables and chairs. Other than their speciality Portuguese chicken and egg tarts, they are also offering a wide of halal Portuguese and Macau delights. Why Macau delights? It is because Macau is previous colony of Portugal, and impact a lot on Macau's foods and culture.

Chicken Chop Bun  RM6.80
This is a halal version of Macau Pork Chop Bun, by replacing the pork chop with chicken chop. Despite there is no pork in the bun, the chicken was well marinated to make it taste 99% like Chinese Char Siew, very flavourful and juicy.
Portuguese Half Chicken with Spaghetti  RM12.90 
I was shocked that half chicken with spaghetti and coleslaw only costed me RM12.90, definitely worth for the price. The chicken is well baked till crispy of its outer layer and juicy inside. On the other hand, the spaghetti is normal and nothing to shout to, but it served a big portion of carbohydrate to fill my stomach. 

SDS Cafeteria 新利香
SDS is the concept of combination of bakery and cafe, located at the basement one of City Square, neighbouring Zen Shabu Shabu and Stone Grill.

SDS claims that their pastry are freshly baked daily. I didn't try on their pastry as I was looking for my lunch. But the crowd of people in the bakery definitely prove the quality of their pastry.
We ordered a spaghetti, chicken chop and a drink. The drink was served first before we started our meal.
Blue Hawaii Soda  RM4.90
It was my favourite drink years back to my secondary school life, where there was always a bubble tea stall outside the school and I often went for this drink despite its very-chemical-blue-colour. I wonder SDS City Square is still selling it and I decided to give it a try, disappointing when I found the taste was different. Anyway, it is still a nice and chilled sparkling drink during hot day.
Carbonara Cheese Spaghetti  RM12.90
I just can say they are not expert in spaghetti, or my taste bud is spoiled by too many good spaghetti before? The sauce is too thick, sticky and milky, I prefer it too be more cheesy and lighter.
Grilled Chicken Chop  RM14.90
Luckily their grilled chicken chop with black pepper sauce was quite good to savour to. The key of success is their marinade and the chicken was grilled quite well. 

There are few more restaurants which look interesting to me and I shall come again and discover more!
