Restoran Muar @ Tengkat Tong Shin

By Aiman Azri

Thriving for more than a decade in the competitive minefield of Tengkat Tong Shin, Restoran Muar is a testament to the power of good cooking - it's an exemplary envoy for time-honoured recipes inspired by the southern Malaysian town for which it's named.


Crispy Fried Eggs might sound simple, but this is something that customers justifiably flock for - a very satisfying union of many eggs combined on one platter, their yolks frilled by crackling edges, showered with soy sauce (RM 6 for this serving).


The Assam Fish is another signature here, a should-try for first-timers to Restoran Muar, showcasing a snapper in a bowl of tasty assam pedas, its flesh achingly moist and tender (seasonal price; RM 33 when we visited).


To round out your meal, have the Mantis Prawns with Dried Chillies, a love letter to heat-packed spicy seafood (RM 20), Butter Kai Lan that's coated in rich creaminess (RM 13), and the 'Secret Cendol,' which is what the servers recommend if you request dessert (RM 4.50).

  2. OMG, those fried eggs are perfectly done to my liking...with extra crispy edges. It looks like it's been drizzled with thick dark soy, not light soy. That was how chef Kylie Kwong did it too...I learned from watching her show how to get crispy fried eggs...you've got to deep-fry them, not pan-fry! ^_*
