Foochow dishes in Johor Jaya

Posted in food,Johor Bahru,malaysia by chrisau on September 8, 2008

I’ve always tried the foochow dishes in Yong Peng, Johor each time I traveled back from the north. However, it’s been quite a while since I travel around and suddenly, I got a craving for these food on a saturday night. Well, luckily, I know one restaurant in JB which served foochow dishes in Taman Johor Jaya.

The foochow dishes are always eaten by mixing with black vinegar sauce, especially on their noodles or soup. So, it’s typical to have a bottle of vinegar sauce in every table, readily to be mixed with the dishes by each individuals. Below are the most common ordered dishes.

I like this very much, the red-wine chicken. Pieces of chicken meat are cooked with red-wine and sends out a nice aroma when served in clay pot.

This is one of the speciality of foochow dish. Frankly I don’t know what this soup is called but when we tried to explain to the waitress, she will know it! It’s like shark-fins(of course not a single one there). The soup should be mixed with vinegar sauce to bring out the best in it.


This is the foochow fried noodle. It looks like the Malaysian hokkien mee, with thick noodles, but it’s eaten by mixing with vinegar too. Most of the folks order the noodles with the foochow dishes instead of rice.

You can visit the place at :- Restoran Fuchew, No 1 & 3, Jalan Ros Merah 2/1, Taman Johor Jaya.
