It's my very first trip to Johor Bahru in 3 years. What is likely to be just an extended destination for Singaporeans (like going Sentosa) felt like a holiday to me. Restoran Hua Mui is an old school coffee shop that is known for their Hainanese chicken chop. This two story shophouse is popular among both locals and tourists. You can see from the high traffic flow on a weekday afternoon that business is brisk.
It's a waste when you come here for the first time and not eat the chicken chop (RM15.90). The chicken, fried till legit crispy (we call it chicken cutlet back home don't we?) and amazingly without a hint of oiliness. The sauce though felt like coloured water. Half-way through the meal, we discovered the secret to a delicious chicken chop when we dipped the fried chicken into chilli sauce. Taste really good! From the image, you get a sense of being transported back in time to the days where food presentation isn't important (what instagram?).
They also adapted to modern day and have salted egg chicken chop (RM19.90) in their menu. This time, the salted egg sauce had flavour and the chicken chop can be enjoyed on its own with the salted egg sauce.
