Poon Choi and Claypot Crab Rice at HoHo Food World Seafood Restaurant

It been very long time since our last visit to Tambun, today we heading down to Tambun to try HoHo Food World Seafood Poon Choi and some other interesting dishes. HoHo Food World located at the very end of Tambun seafood street, it the last shop hence not much people know about it.
Greet by the owner Henry, he is a very nice person that share with us his background and why he setup this restaurant. From our conversation we know that Henry is working on manufacturing line but himself is very picky on food selection hence he decide to take over this restaurant 8months ago and working his best to deliver the best seafood to customer. On top of that, HoHo Food World is pork free restaurant and he is working hard to get Halal status, he is trying to deliver the best seafood dishes not to only Chinese instead to everyone else that came into Tambun.

Isshin Japanese Food Restaurant at Juru Auto City

Isshin Japanese Restaurant situated in the heart of the FTZ Prai, Isshin is the biggest Japanese restaurant in the mainland Prai. A busy restaurant with expatriates and local. A wide variety of bento is available. We will greet with hand towel and small plate of dishes.


Yari Ika Batayaki RM26, imported giant squid in butter sauce. Squid is a bit chewy but not overcook like vulcanized tire texture, portion is big, season with salt and pepper.

Teppan Bento A RM55, beef tenderloin, cod fish, scallop, prawn, mix fried vegetable. This bento set is quite expensive because the portion of each is quite small, scallop is pretty small and taste like fish ball while beef is very chewy and we fail to swallow it.

Seafood Yaki Udon/Soba Special & lidako salad RM22, fried Japanese noodle with seafood and baby octopus salad. Quite disappointed with this dish as the flavor is just normal, the use of artificial crab meat has spoiled the overall tastiness.

Isshin Special RM28, Japanese Rice wrapped with cucumber and unagi. Short-grain variety of rice is nicely cook with it unique stickiness and texture, cucumber is crunchy and unagi taste good.

Just on time for sunset after finish our dinner, pretty early!

Overall taste just normal, bento set is quite disappointed for the price we pay.

Double Good Restaurant Juru Auto City

Double Good Restaurant(好好)Auto City is branch for Bayan Lepas, famous for its Indonesian Prawn and effective service during our last few visits to Bayan Lepas Double Good Restaurant.
We 10 persons head down to Juru Auto City Double Good Restaurant after tiring Paintball game and expecting a delicious lunch.
We took Set C which cost RM178 for 10 persons, including of 5 main dishes, rice, drink and free Shark Fin Soup. We are actually request to change the Shark Fin Soup to other dish but they refuse so we have no choice but to take the Shark Fin Soup.
A small bowl of Shark Fin Soup is serving to everyone; very small bowl and it taste just normal.
Shark Fin Soup

Special Beancurb with Dried Shrimp, Bean curb is deep fried and top with Dried Shrimp and spring onions. Not much flavor and the dried shrimp are so limited that you hardly notice it present.

Stir Fried KaiLan, KaiLan fried with KaiLan, that the best word I can use to describe this dish. No Prawn, No Meat, No Salty Fish, Nothing, just plain KaiLan.
Stir Fried Vegetable

Sizzling Deer Meat with Black Pepper, a lot of Onion and Chili instead of Deer Meat, cook in black sauce and it taste just normal.

Beijing Style Pork Ribs, Deep Fried Pork Ribs cook with Sweet Sauce, Pork Ribs is tender and soft while the sweet sauce is nice to take with rice.

The signature dish, Indonesian Prawn. After so many disappointing dishes this is the only dish which keeps the standard as Bayan Lepas Main Shop.
White Prawn uses to cook in curry paste which very strong flavor and extremely good gravy taken with rice. Recommended!
Indonesian Prawns

It quite disappointed with the service and food quality in Juru Auto City branch, piece of advice is to go Penang Island for the “original” quality food from Double Good Restaurant.

Halal Food at Jamu Selera Juru

Thanks to my friend Terry who brought us to Jamu Selera for our dinner, this restaurant is really hidden in one of the village near Juru, we will never come across without anyone bring us.
Jamu Selera is a Halal restaurant and operate by Malay, it been quite some time since the last time I have Malay food which I miss a lot.
Jamu Selera famous for its Mee Udang and Mee Ketam as well as Ikan Bawal Goreng.

For those that not familiar with Malay eating culture, please don’t misunderstand this tea port is for refill water. This is use by our Malay friend to clean their hand before bare hand eating

Ikan Bawal Goreng with Sweet Sauce, we ordered 2 fish as the portion is not really big. Ikan Bawal is deep fried to crunchy and sweet sauce added on top, even deep fried but the fish meat is still very juicy while the sweet sauce further enriches the tastiness for the fish.

Prawn, the soup is taste on the sweet side but the prawn is not white prawn hence is not that tasty, for a portion of 3 people around 15 prawns are serving.

Fried Egg, it exactly the same as Chinese Fu Yong Tan just without pork.

Free Soup, normal soup without any ingredients.

This cost us RM40 for 4 people, quite reasonable and the Ikan Bawal Goreng is recommended.
