Macau Express Restaurant @ Jusco Tebrau, Johor Bahru

It was tea time, Mr. Bf and I decided to eat some Portuguese egg tarts in Macau Express Restaurant. The food that they provide are truly the Macanese food that were offered back in Macau.

DSC00587 Unfortunately, we were informed that Portuguese egg tarts were sold out and we had to wait for another 30 minutes for freshly-baked new egg tarts. Well, we ordered our drinks and ordered chicken chop burger. It was fully sold out as well.


DSC00591We found a place near the window with our drinks and in the mean time waiting for the Portuguese egg tarts.

After 30 minutes, Mr. Bf went to check if egg tarts were ready. However, they needed another 10 minutes but we decided not to wait anymore. That was our Sunday tea time.

Kinsahi Japanese Restaurant (金旭) @ Jusco Tebrau, Johor Bahru

My Rating: (3.5/6)

happy1 happy1 happy1

Japanese food again for Sunday lunch. As there are only two Japanese restaurants available in Jusco Tebrau; Sushi King and Kinsahi, without hesitation i opted for Kinsahi.

DSC00585Kinsahi may be popular in Johor Bahru as there are 5 outlets there while there are only 2 in Klang Valley.


The interior of the restaurant was fashioned in a rather somber mood, with wooden wall.





Kinsahi’s Day for VIP Card Member only from 22/06/09 – 25/06/09. 50% off for selected dishes and it’s quite cheap. Fancy trap, RM9.95++; Nameko Tofu, RM4.45++; Shiro Maguro Sashimi, RM10.95++; Sanma Shioyaki, RM6.95++, Tori Kimuchi Itame, RM7.45++



Free flow of green tea costs RM1 per person


Tako kimuchi (seasoned scallop), RM5

Once we were seated, a bowl of seasoned scallops was served to us. At first, we thought it was FOC just like where they serve tasty FOC starter for everyone. However, this was not complimentary and they charged us RM5 for that, which was outrageous. I should say this was sorta like a rip off.


Seafood ramen, RM14.90

Mr. Bf ordered this seafood ramen. There was nothing to shout about.

DSC00554 Fancy trap (十面埋伏), RM19.90

Rice topped with unagi, ebiko, small slices of salmon and tuna, egg, cucumber and some octopus. It was delicious.

DSC00555 DSC00557DSC00572 Unagi temaki, RM 7.90. The seaweed wasn’t crispy at all.

To be frank, if there are more Japanese restaurants to choose, I would rather go to Ichiban Boshi, Sushi Zanmai or Sakae Sushi which is more worth the money spent.

Total bill comes with RM52+. With the membership card, I got 10% off the bill.
