Kluang's Little Bangsar

We headed south on the fourth day of CNY (Feb 13) and for the first time in some years, traffic was smooth sailing all the way to Kluang.

Except for some heavy rain along the way that made driving difficult and even dangerous, it was a pleasant drive.

Kluang (pop: 250,000 for the whole district) is a smallish central Johore town that is more famous for the tv brand white coffee powder, the Kluang railway station coffee shop (now rebranded Kluang RailCoffee) or the bust-shaped Gunung Lambak that seems to lord over the place.

But there is a busy night life in a small enclave of the newer section of the town that is like the town's Bangsar of the federal capital, with its own pubs, bistros, KTVs, coffee shops and restaurants where people gather to see and to be seen.

After a rather forgettable reunion dinner with some family members at a Chinese restaurant that cost us a bomb, we decided to check out the Kluang Corner restaurant cafe the next night.

Kluang Corner has quite an extensive menu, including the Malaysian favourite nasi lemak.

The Menu
I was told that their curry mee was worth a try and also their Thai pineapple fried rice. But not in the mood for more 'heaty' food, I opted for their Kam Heong 甘香 rice which was just right for me.

But the Kam Heong Fried Udon noodle that my friend had, turned out to be surprisingly good, a liitle spicy to boot.

Kluang was a sleepy hollow, but is fast becoming a bustling town. You can't miss the bust-shaped gunung Lambak lording over the place and the town is well known for its tv brand coffee powder

Kluang RailCoffee

Kluang RailCoffee
The Kluang railway station coffee shop, now re-branded Kluang RailCoffee, is well known for its cuppa of coffee and the charcaol grilled piping hot buns oozing with butter and kaya...It used to attract standing-room only crowds. It still does, but the last time I was there it wasn't a good experience for me. The famous coffee had somewhat lost its oomph and even the buns...The shop has a long and noted history being first opened for business in 1938 and the place is now run by the 3rd generation LIm family. I hope the next time I return, the coffee would regain its oomph. Click to read more...
