Island Red Cafe, JB

As usual, I love to have afternoon tea breaks on saturdays where you can wind down after a tough week of work and not to worry about having to go to work the next day. Saturdays are truly great  where it’s like you can have the entire day for yourself and do whatever you like, be it watching a movie, staying late at night, shop and etc….. at your own sweet pace.

I visited this nice cafe called Island Red Cafe. It’s nicely decorated and it’s easily noticeable if you driving down the main road at Taman Nusa Bestari, JB.

Here’s the interior of the shop. You can surf for free with their four workstations with wide LCD screens located at the middle. Not bad as you don’t have to pay as in cybercafe, especially if you just wanted to check your emails.

Like most kopitiams, they sold variety of stuffs from local to western food. As above is a bowl of kuay teow soup which was ordered by my wife. Well, compare to those more famous ones like Ah Koong’s fish ball noodles or the Yong Peng fishball noodles, this one is so-so la….

However, they excel in their western food and the chicken chop above was one of the best that I ever tried. I don’t even needed to dip into the mushroom sauce as the chicken chop was grilled deliciously enough. With a nice cup of coffee, that makes my another relaxing saturday afternoon!🙂

Here’s their website.

Address:-1-01 & 51-02, jalan bestari 1/5, taman nusa bestari, 81300 johor.
