2016 was a year of disruption, albeit a gratifying one in every sense of the word. Having come up close and personal with a diverse group of mostly homegrown award-winning chefs, restaurateurs and café owners, with many upping the ante with new menus or revamped spaces, we felt the time is now right to pay tribute to these food heroes who have been quietly going about their business. After all, we couldn’t have done it ourselves, having benefitted from all the kind support as we grow our readership the slow and steady way.

All it took was a brilliant “service” (aka bright idea) during one of our regular badminton sessions after work to put paid to our grand plans to stay in shape for 2017, and a new <MENU> was born. Nowadays, going out to eat isn’t just about satiating appetites, but also having a memorable experience. Luckily for JB, an emergence of concept forward eateries have opened up with the food and feel to match.

Please enjoy dinner from our carefully curated <MENU>, presented over a special 3-course format with our selection of Starter, EntreesDessert & Brew and Wine & Spirits like no other, with added Sides and bringing you a host of Chef’s Specials and Chef Favourites to your table.


Main Course

Looking for a gastronomy experience you’ll never forget, complete with vibrant colours, bold favours and some of the nest ingredients? We’ve picked out some amazing restaurants which are guaranteed to leave your mouth watering.


Dessert & Brew

From sipping filtered brews, revel in artisanal pastries to getting a brain freeze, savour the different cafe experiences, including the old and the new, the classic and the innovative!


Wine & Spirits

If you’re looking to relieve stress, have fun, or grab your best friends and have a great night out with fantastic food and drinks, look no further – we’ve sussed out these popular watering holes for you!


Find-dining” in Malaysia’s southernmost city is no easy task, even with two of our best partners in culinary crime – Tony (Johor Kaki) and Peggy Loh (My Johor Stories) showing the way. Continuing our collective mission and passion for digging deep into JB’s food scene, beyond the legions of street hawkers and local eateries, we took it upon ourselves to search for our next great gastronomic adventure without having to jet set around the world to taste different cuisines.


Countless nights (and suppers) then followed the initial ideation, leading to more food photography, reviews and interviews, and finally countless page design, layout, editorial and translation. From concept through to print, the journey throughout JB took us around the (gourmet) world in exactly… 80 days!


If the growing food scene in JB is any indication of what’s to come, we are all in for a welcome and delicious change. In appreciation for all the continuous support throughout the year, may we present our specially curated <MENU> with a strong local identity, bringing a range of Asian, Western and fusion cuisines to your table, while showcasing some truly unique designs and ambience to match!

Happy 2017! Stay hungry and bon appétit!
