A couple of months ago, I was sent a new book (click to enlarge) by my friend Tony Johor Kaki! He runs a really great blog and I first found him from his instant noodle reviews. Now he’s written a book – Fine Dining With Johor Kaki: 100 Must-Try Johor’s Heritage & Street Food. Its a really neat presentation of some of southern peninsular Malaysia’s great foods and where to find them. Here are some words about it from the author:
The 150 page full colour book featuring 100 street hawkers and heritage food in Johor Bahru took one year to produce with the generous support of UMLand and MAGistrate. UMLand sponsored the printing costs and MAGistrate provided the artwork, design, Chinese translation and editorial support.
The 100 street hawkers were curated over a four year period. Over this period, I personally tasted the food at over 1500 stalls and eateries throughout Johor. Many of the stalls are recommended by Johor readers, others are gleaned from Johor foodie community discussions, and the rest are my own stumble upons when I walked the streets and alleys of Johor. I am grateful for all the tips and leads from Johoreans which made this book possible.
Let’s look within!
Neat maps and graphics can be found throughout (click to enlarge), showing you where to go!
Here are a couple different places to go (click to enlarge). Great images and info and even QR codes you can scan at the bottom for the locations! This book does one thing for me – it makes me yearn for the amazing food of Malaysia. Thank you very much for sending me a copy and congratulations – you’ve created a seriously in-depth compendium of great food!
