There are many famous Bak Kut Teh in Johor, we pick two from Johor Kaki‘s recommendation. Just add white rice and yummy fritters (油条).
Name: Hwa Mei (华美肉骨茶 )
(10min walk from CIQ building. This spot is not easy to find if you drive, narrow road and lack of carpark space)

Generally, Malaysia’s Bak Ku Teh are more herbal then pepperish. Our kids are more accustomed to pepperish broth, as they might not like the “Chinese medicine” smell of herbal broth.
Surprisingly, kids finish every last drop of goodness at Hwa Mei. It must be the rain and cold weather, everyone order additional rice and of course more refill of the tasty broth.
Name: Ah Soon (亚顺肉骨茶), near to Taman Sentosa The Store

Stewed goodness, but we found the meat too tough. The standard is about similar to Soon Soon Heng (顺顺兴肉骨茶) opposite KSL.
The quality used to be good (maybe a decade ago), but it was too oily this round. We could not find “charred” crispy corners. We had to ovened it one more time before it taste nice. Do order the Char1 Siew1 Soh1 (叉燒酥) instead.
