We had a great time baking and meeting new friends in Johor Bahru (JB). We had 3 sets of baking on the first day instead of two by request and at the end all of us got into being a zombie . . . . yeah, we were so tired and went straight to our bunker!

There were a lot of changes in the Johor Bahru scenery, lots of new roads and new buildings as for food, I would amazingly say, just amazing, just delicious, just awesome!. We had loads of Italian food, you just can’t imagine, just pure lovely, perfect pasta and drooling pizza. We had japanese too, outstanding flavours, fresh shashimi, truely teppanyaki of a whole squid, unagi maki, tempura, not forgetting the garlic fried rice and flushed down with a few cup of rejunevating cooling green tea.

Another exciting menu we had, it was the Bak Kut Teh flushed within the Johor Bahru downtown scene, it was totally amazing delicious. Yet another exciting meal we had was the beef noodle and also the stewed duckling noodle, both amazingly delicious, something not to be missed and I will defintely post about them this coming weeks.

And as for today, I am going to share my delicious discovery of baking, a chocolate vanilla olive oil cake and a recipe by a modest, loyal, good looking and a winning pastry chef himself, Chef Ronny Leung from the famous Hong Kong Club.



Chocolate Mousse
380g Whipping cream
380g Milk
210g Trimoline
3pcs Vanilla bean cut into 2 pieces
380g Egg yolk
1000g Dark chocolate 70% chopped


1. Boil together the cream, milk, trimoline and the vanilla bean in a saucepan.
2. Pour over the egg yolk and boil to reach 85C.
3. Then add to dark chocolate and mix well.
4. Finally, fold in whipped cream.

    I suppose the beef noodle shop is the one which overlooking the new half built bridge in JB town. I am beef noodle fanatic and have eaten in fame places like Bangkok, New York (Vietnam style), Melbourne, Hong Kong and more in KL. This JB one, is the best among all. My only fear is that the owner may quit soon due to age.

      wow Danny! we do share the passion in food! and you got it spot on about that lovely beef noodle shop located looking across the new half built bridge. Do you agree the taste of this beef noodle shop has a similarity with the one at seremban wet market?

        Coincidentally,just had the S,ban one last week (they had a branch in Kemanyan Sq)result – not up to par. Anyway, I go JB every Monday and back friday KL (Did this for the past 10 years). If you guys need a ride or send things down JB or vice versa, pls let me know. No charges but just badly need some of those pastry you made.
