I love street food. I love it even more when I can share the joy with all my friends and family. There's a grilled fish stall here that is halal, so many of my Muslim colleagues would definitely visit this place when they are in Johor Bahru.
In case you are not sure where it is, google the road name below..
The grilled fish stall I referred to is Tip Top B.B.Q. Ikan Bakar. It is situated at the corner end of the row of stalls.
Customers can choose the seafood they like from the table.
Pari or stingray has always been my favourite ikan bakar (grilled fish) choice. I like the strong pungent chilli spices used to grill the fish.
I have also grown to love sotong (squid) if they cook it right.
Right beside the grilled fish stall is a stall selling cooling drinks to sooth our scorching throat after the fiery ikan bakar.
We ordered "ching po leong", a chinese dessert drink that has cooling effects. Good to balance the heat from next door.
I truly enjoy the "ching po leong" as it is laden with many chewable goodies. These herbs/seeds are also good for cleansing. Nyum..
Then we have another stall named "Yong" that serves killer tauhu bakar (grilled tofu).
The tofu is real crispy and laden with sweet fragrant prawn sauce. The taste can't be described....
Of course I wouldn't miss a chance to grab a couple of otak-otak (grilled fish stick).
I have fond memories of stripping down these sticks with my family. The blend of sweet and spicy is enhanced with the fragrant smell from the grilled coconut or nipah palm leaf. Owh.. I miss it already..
