Fresh Lobster @ Jade Garden Seafood Corner, Sungai Rengit, Johor


As the restaurant name suggests, this place serves a wide selection of fresh seafood that you get to pick and choose.  This is where I got to taste one of the best and freshest Lobster at a fraction of the price that I and most people would typically pay in other cities in Malaysia, regardless of whether it is in a Chinese or a Western restaurant.

This place can be be found hidden in a fishing village that is about a 1.5 hours drive from Johor Bahru.  The footprint of the restaurant is awesomely big and although I did not do a count on the number of tables it could fit,  I imagine it could probably fit a hundred tables, or close to that number.  The place appears to be filled with a lot of Singaporean tourists.  The menu offers Chinese cuisine with many choices of cooking style.  I happily went along with the restaurant’s recommendations which were actually the standard recipe that I had tried umpteenth times in other seafood restaurants.  I did that so that I could have a good comparison with the others I had elsewhere, and regardless of the name on the menu, there is always some difference in the style and taste and they never come out exactly the same.  I wasn’t disappointed!!! The freshness was awesome and taste the cooks gave to the dishes was really good.  So, the next time you are in Johor Bahru and you have a craving for seafood, take a ‘road trip’ to this place.  You won’t be disappointed. Oh!, be early because the place is packed during dinner, especially over the weekends.
