What's the first thing that comes to mind when you think of the royal town of Muar, Johor? Apart from the famous Muar otak-otak, there's an abundance of delicious Muar delights such as the Muar Laksa, Mee Siput and many more, ready to be devoured!
And that is precisely why Muar Road was conceptualised - to introduce the delicacies of Muar to the world!
With approximately 50% of the ingredients brought directly from Muar, Muar Road serves a variety of main courses, snacks and traditional desserts.
No Muar experience is complete without otak-otak!
Made from grilled fish paste and a mixture of traditional spices, each otak-otak is individually wrapped in banana leaf and grilled on charcoal to infuse the delicious flavours into the meat.
We love how Muar Road's version has a distinct spicy kick, perfect for spice seekers and otak-otak lovers!
Have you heard of Mee Siput?
Famed and loved as a snack during the school days in Muar, Mee Siput is made with thick, crunchy noodles which are fried into a disc and dipped in sambal or chilli sauce for that added flavour.
It tastes just like savoury, crunchy keropok and brings back nostalgic childhood memories for all who grew up in Muar. A must-try for all snack lovers!
Don't miss out on Muar Road's chef's specialty - the Muar Laksa!
The Muar Laksa is usually known as curry laksa in KL, and usually has a sweet, spicy and rich santan taste. Served with your choice of noodles, beansprouts, fried beancurd skin, fish cake and prawns rather than clams.
If you're craving for something substantial, choose from the selection of soup or dry noodles and rice dishes at Muar Road!
Our favourites were the Crispy Chicken Chop rice, Sambal Fried Rice and Homemade Mee Hoon with Otak-Otak. Simply good ol' comfort food!
There's nothing like a classic Malaysian breakfast!
Load up on that protein and energy with Muar Road's Roti Bakar and half-boiled Kampung Eggs, as well as the famous Muar 434 Kopi O (from the legendary Muar 434 Sai Kee coffeehouse which has been around for more than 60 years).
For dessert, crunch down on Muar Road's ABC Ais Kacang, made with refreshing shaved ice, corn, ice cream, grass jelly and more!
We'd also high recommend trying their Yuen Yang (Black + White) dessert on a rainy day - made with a comforting blend of white wheat porridge and black glutinous rice, served with or without cakoi (traditional fried dough). Warm, comforting and absolutely satisfying!
Hesitate no more and head on over to get your Muar fix (without needing to travel South!!)
