Renaissance Hotel Johor Bahru

Recently stayed at the Renaissance Hotel in Johor Bahru. The hotel is located at Permas Jaya behind the Petrol station. There is a overhead pedestrian bridge with bus shelter along the busy main road. The two bus kiosks can take you from JB Sentral to Renaissance Hotel and vice versa.

The appearance of Renaissance Hotel building looked rather boring and dull. Checking in was slightly delayed even though the hotel lobby was literally almost empty at that time. Understand from the staff that the room was not ready; even though it was already 3pm.  Anyway, the hotel was also promoting its mooncakes at the lobby. Did managed to sample their mooncakes – it was delicious and so I bought one box of 4 mooncakes. The staff told me that there was no preservatives used in their baked mooncakes; so it is advisable to eat as soon as possible.

The room was spacious and clean. The king size bed and pillows were clean and comfortable. I liked the shower in the bathroom; the water pressure was very strong. You can literally rinse off any soap or shampoo from your body in less than 5 minutes. The air conditioned was cold and running quietly. There was a big TV in the bedroom – didn’t have much time to watch TV.

The breakfast was really good. The restaurant was large with enough tables and chairs to accommodate hotel guests. The breakfast spread was generous; with a wide variety of food. I liked the fresh fruit juice counter, the do it yourself noodles counter and the simple porridge. The Indian mutton curry and vegetarian curry were excellent.

Overall it was a good stay at the Renaissance Hotel in Permas Jaya.  I would definitely come back to stay at this hotel when I come back to Permas Jaya.

Prawn Noodles | Salmon Noodles & Dumplings in Permas Jaya Johor

Went to this simple food outlet called Chef Ong in Permas Jaya.  Again it is one of the simple and spacious coffee shop that you see often see in Permas Jaya area. I was there at about 6pm and there are plenty of empty tables & seats.

I ordered the Prawn Mee ( noodles ), Salmon noodles and Salmon dumplings; also the Tofu. The food came quickly and it looked good. The prawn noodles was deliciously good. The 2 prawns were very fresh and the broth was excellent; and there were pieces of pork too.

The Salmon fish soup noodles was tasty as well. But I prefer the salmon to be boiled in the soup rather than the fried one. The Salmon was definitely fresh. The broth was tasty and not salty at all.

The Salmon fish dumplings was something refreshing to me; as I had never eaten such dumplings before. There were generous salmon inside the dumplings. If you are ordering the Salmon noodles, there is no need to order the fish dumplings. It is almost eating the same thing.

The tofu was excellent as well. The tofu simply melt inside your mouth.  It was a good and hearty dinner for me. I had also ordered their Soursop  juice. The Soursop juice was refreshing with some of its fruit inside the glass.

My favorite food in Chef Ong is the Prawn Mee ( noodles).
