Eugene’s Grocery, Johor Bahru

English

Looking for a place to get the best meats in Johor Bahru? Eugene’s Grocery is number one on our list. Nestled in Jalan Perang, Taman Pelangi, the store imports and distributes fresh and chilled meat but never frozen below -20ºC to ensure freshness. This guarantees the flavour and quality of the proteins you get, enabling you to cook up a storm for a special occasion or even just a delicious everyday meal. Fresh ingredients are always a top priority for a tasty meal.

A main highlight of Eugene’s Grocery is their beef, imported from countries such as USA, Australia, New Zealand and of course, Japan.

Want something low-fat and low-calorie? New Zealand grass-fed beef is your pick. Want something tender and juicy? Japanese Wagyu beef is the recognized world-wide to be the best. Japanese Wagyu beef is genetically predisposed to intense marbling and melts-in-the-mouth and Eugene’s Grocery has Grade A5 Japanese Wagyu, which is the highest grade possible.  The A5 here is truly world-class, just as good as those you find in Paris, London etc.

The store is not only the go-to for freshly chilled meat varieties, they provide fresh foods such as wide varieties of pasta, and seafood. On top of the cost of the meat/ seafood, you can add a nominal and the expert chef prepares the meat/ seafood just the way you like it for you to enjoy right here in the deli.  I wholly recommend their lobsters from Boston.  Kept live in a tank till you buy it, you can really taste the “fresh-off-the-sea” sensation in these crustaceans.

Well-known for their impeccable service, you can also pick up ingredients easily from the day’s menu over the counter.

If ogling at the different kinds of grub makes you a little hungry, Eugene’s Grocery also serves delectable western cuisines on the spot. We hear that the steak, burgers and ribs are mouth-watering.

You can find Eugene’s Grocery at: No.16 Jalan Perang Taman Pelangi, Johor Bahru

您在找新山最好的肉食品商店吗?Eugene食品商店是您最好的选择。坐落在Jalan Perang, Taman Pelangi的这家食品商店进出口新鲜和冷却的肉类食品。为了确保新鲜,绝不会在零下20度以下冷藏。这样也确保了食物蛋白质的口味和质量,让您可以在特别的场合做出一桌美食,又或者只是一道美味的家庭料理。对一道美味的菜肴来说,新鲜的食材永远是最重要的。

Eugene食品商店最推荐的就是牛肉。他们的牛肉是从美国,澳大利亚,新西兰进口的,当然也少不了日本。

如果你想要低脂肪低卡路里的牛肉,新西兰的食草牛肉是您的最佳选择。如果您想要鲜嫩多汁的牛肉,日本和牛是世界公认最好的。日本和牛天生就有有鲜明的大理石花纹和入口即化的口感,而Eugene食品商店有现有最高级别A5级别的日本和牛。这里的和牛真真确确是世界级的标准,和您在法国和伦敦等地买到的一样。

这家食品商店不只提供多种新鲜冷却的肉类,也提供意大利面食,海鲜等种类繁多的新鲜食物。如果您在买肉或者海鲜的价钱上,象征性地加一点,他们的名厨可以按照您想要的方式为您烹饪,让您可以在店内享受美食。我非常推荐他们的波斯顿龙虾。他们将虾饲养在水缸里,您可以真正品尝到那壳里面“刚出海”的鲜味。

他们店里的服务无可挑剔,您也可以在柜台从日常菜单中轻松地挑选食材。

如果挑选这些食物让您觉得有点饿了,Eugene食品商店也提供现成的西式美食。听说那里的牛排,汉堡和肋骨让人垂涎三尺。

And before you ask, yes, the food’s pretty good, too!

One of the restaurant’s highlights would definitely be their Double-Boiled Ginseng Soup with Village Chicken.  The village chicken, having gone through the process of double-boiling, was absolutely tender and melted in our mouths. The soup itself contained various other nutritious ingredients and was fragrant, wholesome, and tasty to the core. 10/10 would recommend this when you drop by this restaurant.

Did you know that Wan Li serves up a variety of fresh seafood as well? A seafood dish is a must-have when you’re here, and our pick of the day was the Crisp-Fried Fillet of Cod Fish with Fragrant Garlic and Superior Soy Broth. The flesh itself was sweet and firm, owing to its state of freshness. Along with the savory and flavourful soy broth, this dish impressed us with its intricate harmony of tastes.

And, of course, how can we miss out the desserts? Starting with the Chilled Mango Puree & Pomelo, this dish impressed us with its mango-y goodness. One bite in and you can already tell how pure the puree is! None of that diluted, tasteless stuff that we so often get. The refreshing pomelo bits did a great job in balancing out the concentrated, tangy flavours of the mango as well. A match made in heaven, if you ask me.

Last but not least, a trip to any dim sum restaurant would be incomplete without some salted egg yolk buns. Aptly named the Golden Custard Bun, is it too much to say that even this common dish managed to impress us by quite a bit? Nestled within the freshly steamed bun, the salted egg yolk custard was just the right mix of savoury and sweet. Its consistency was just right as well – not too runny, not too solid, something that so many others seem to not quite get. Needless to say, Wan Li has got it down to the tee.

It was a wonderful afternoon at Wan Li Chinese Restaurant, what’s with all that goodness frolicking in our mouths. It’s definitely a place to check out if you ever want to get some superb Cantonese food, so drop by soon when that craving hits!

Top Recommended Cafe: JWC The Factory, Johor Bahru

Nestled amongst the enclaves of Mount Austin, with a multitude of cafes, stands Just Want Coffee. Being the first cafe in Malaysia to have imported a coffee roasting machine, it sets the bar for premium roasted beans that are not just aromatic, but full of body and flavour when brewed.

The juxtaposition of modern and traditional is captured in the way Just Want Coffee has designed this branch, known as The Factory 30. Furnished with an industrial vintage look in mind, it is housed in an actual factory complete with an actual shutter and containers in its surrounding. At first glance, faced with a big, grey shutter, one may be confused as to where the entrance of the cafe is. That is just the pseudo entrance and cafe hoppers will have to go in through the glass door on the left of the shutters.

With so much hype on the outlook and hipster vibe of this place, it is comforting to know that the coffee as well as food does not disappoint.

Thanks to K-drama, korean fried chicken is all the rage now.  The korean fried chicken here is crispy on the outside and fresh, tender and juicy on the inside.  They have thoughtfully provided some salad for balance as well as a disposable glove for clean eating.

The JWC signature japanese curry rice is so filling!  It comes with a delicious chicken cutlet, sticky japanese rice, and come drizzled with savoury japanese curry.

If you do make a trip to Just Want Coffee, you’ll not want to pass up a delectable slice of their signature tiramisu cake. The spongy layers, infused with liquor and generously soaked with aromatic coffee, sit between rich mascarpone custard and whipped cream. This mouth-watering treat is served frozen, perfect on a hot and humid day in JB.

Despite the hassle of having to navigate to this area, Just Want Coffee has met all my expectations of a delightfully indie cafe with a delectable menu. Thus, I would most definitely return to this place for a quiet afternoon siesta over spectacular coffee and perhaps a Tiramisu.
