Johor Bahru (Malaysia) Famous Food


It is a paradise for foodies! Many people flock to Penang, Malacca and Ipoh for their foodie delights, but Johor Bahru is often overlooked. This food paradise is home to some of the best Malaysian cuisines, with many recipes and eateries that have been passed down through generations. 

1. Bukit Chagar Roti Canai

The roti canai at Bukit Chagar is the most famous dish in Johor Bahru. Known for over 10 years for serving naans that are crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, Bukit Chagar is a go-to place in Johor Bahru for a mouth-watering local breakfast.

Why are roti canai so delicious? It’s all in the way the dough turns, which creates layers of fluffy goodness. When paired with homemade dal or sambal, this delicious combo will put a smile on your face with every bite.
