3. Coffee @ JWC, The Factory 30

JWC has such a strange name, coupled with the words ‘The Factory 30’. But every word has a meaning that makes sense once we explain it. JWC stands for ‘Just Want Coffee’, and The Factory 30 is an important part of their identity because this café is located within a refurbished factory. The unique touch of darker tones and leather chairs suits its grunge aesthetic of being built within a factory. In fact, it adds an edgy and cool atmosphere when you sip their signature house blends!

4. BBQ food @ Demon’s BBQ Garden

The wafting scent of a good barbecue can be irresistibly tempting, especially if you’re walking past a barbecue joint! Residing at Taman Desa Tebrau is the iconic Botak Demon BBQ. Why is it called botak, you might ask? That’s because the boss that manages the cooking has a signature shaved head that is instantly recognisable. Although it is just a humble stall, nothing suits the smoky scents of BBQ better than an outdoor setting. You can feast on various BBQ fares without the sacrifice of confining yourself in an indoor restaurant filled with smoke from other grills.

5. Wantan Mee @ Fortune Pot

Fortune Pot Wan Tan Mee is famous for their “Johor Bahru Style” Wantan mee, even though they also offer other menu items such as rice dishes and assorted Taiwanese cuisine. Usually, Wantan Mee can taste heavy or over-seasoned when there is too much sauce. However, Fortune Pot’s Wantan Mee is uniquely light, and its noodles are springy. For an additional RM1, customers can add-on a small wanton, lava egg and pickled Choy Sum. It’s incredibly worth it because your Wantan Mee dish becomes fuller and more complete, especially if you’re a big eater!

7. Hot Pot+Shabu Shabu @ D&C Hotpot Shabu

Shabu Shabu and Hot Pot might seem similar, some might even use the terms interchangeably, but they have distinct differences. In Hot Pot, the ingredients are cooked in a broth, whereas in Shabu Shabu, the ingredients are parboiled in a sauce. But, what if you could have the best of both worlds in Mount Austin? D&C Hotpot Shabu lets their customers indulge in either options and they also have delicious à la carte menu items such as Claypot Chicken Rice that go perfectly with your Hot Pot or Shabu Shabu.

8. Vegetarian Food @ Vege Coffee

This is a place for the vegans and the meat-eaters looking for some healthy greens. We were utterly taken aback when we first saw their vegan dishes because they looked incredibly similar to their meat counterparts. Dishes such as their Vegetarian Roast Duck and Vegetarian Pork Vinegar looked too real, we couldn’t believe these were simply vegetarian renditions! Their food not only looks convincing, but they’re also incredibly delicious with a homely feel to them as well.

9. Roasted Duck @ Meng Meng Roasted Duck Mount Austin

Meng Meng Roast Duck offers many Chinese staples, but they’re called Meng Meng Roast Duck because it’s their speciality. A delicious plate of roast duck can be difficult to find because it’s not a typical choice for meat, and is challenging to prepare. However, Meng Meng Roast Duck prepares the dish perfectly with expert prowess. If you feel like ordering more dishes to go with rice, their Honey Char Siew and Shao Rou are also highly recommended dishes.
