The old and established.....

The past week was school holidays and I decided to take a two day off for some family bonding. Expectations were not high during these holidays as my wifey would preferred the kids to work on their homework and tuition. Thus, instead of planning to travel to somewhere not too near, we are home bound. The furthest we went to are places like Desaru beach (which is about 40 mins drive from JB) and Pontian.

However, I got to experience some established, famous and long running eateries here. There was this bak kut teh which was situated nearby the CIQ and had been operating for 20 or maybe 30 years. It's just besides the CIQ where you can see the causeway. Check out Kedai kopi Malaysia.

BKT...the serving was quite big!

Can't wait to start with chilli padi & chilli and white rice.
I preferred these type of  BKT compared to those claypot type as I find that more skills are required to cook compared to those claypot ones.

After trying out some 'original' BKT, I finally got the chance to eat the original Pontian Wanton noodles, in Pontian. I was at this Heng Heng Wanton noodles in Pontian, a trip where I quite reluctant to go initially as I needed to travel back to Singapore in the evening. However, since my wife likes to go out for a ride as well as checking out if I can replace my IC quicker in a small town, I decided to follow. The queues in JB was terribly long during the school holidays and I thought it's a good idea to try my luck at a less crowded place. Anyway, too bad when I reached there, they have finished giving out the numbers and fulfilled their quota for the day.

Here's the wanton noodles from Pontian. Looks ordinary but delicious!
It came with their famous fishballs and wanton, of course
They made their own noodles and the noodles are very 'springy' too. The fishballs were soft! They also served nice otah-otah over there.

Thus instead of planning to places like Seremban or Melaka,I ended up trying out some old, established food stalls. :) Have a good week!
