Angie's Family Trip - Johor Bahru and Singapore (2nd-3rd Sept 2010)

My hubby have a business appointment down in Singapore to meet with his client, so he decided to bring us along as a business and pleasure trip. We travel by car, he drove of course, is fun cause we can stop by for some good food in Johor area.We make a move early in the morning, with an empty stomach, we plan to stop by this famous wantan mee restaurant for lunch.
Restaurant Ho Seng Kee No. 12, Jalan Kancil ,
Taman Century in Johor Bahru.
Open daily from 10.30am to 3.00pm except Tuesdays.
(Non-halal)
Ratings:
Food: 4/5
Services: 3/5
Cleanliness: 4/5

Ho Seng Kee is a very famous Wanton Mee restaurant, everyone in Johor knew about it and is highly recommended must eat place. We ordered otak-otak, 2 big dried wantan mee and 1 small wantan mee soup and 2 herbal drinks. Total paid for lunch RM 29.50 ( 2 adults 1 kid )
Kon Lau Wantan Mee (Large)
Yummm...this is good, maybe we are too hungry, but everyone in Johor agree this is the best wan tan mee. Springy noodle made by them, top with kon lau sauce with a lighter taste compare to KL, char siu pork also good, less fat with a light sweet taste and aroma of spices.
Angelene prefer soup noodle, wan tan was good and fresh, soup was light and sweet, nice!
She finish all the char siu then only she start eating her noodle
Otak-Otak
Wow! Must order this, good quality otak-otak, make your mouth watering!
Angelene loves the otak otak ! But too spicy for her , she drank a lots of water
Very intelligent, using the flour packaging for deco, telling us they used quality and a mixture different type of flour to make their wan tan mee.

 Time to make a move, continue our journey to Singapore

Ice Kacang Special
For a hot sunny day, this will be a very good dessert...aaahhhh cooling
Really cooling, after we sat for a while we can start to feel the breeze of wind, Angelene start to feel a bit cold, better put her jacket on, avoid catching the cold
She's so happy to see the Kids Menu, but we are heading back to Johor Bahru later for dinner, don't want to let her eat too much now
She actually kept the menu for colouring
