Tired of malls? Just go outside and find cheap food here...

As I wait for the train, I wander outside JB City Square. Busy street. Watch out for the bus/car/motorcycle. Try the food.

This street in JB has many historical shophouses alongside both side of its road. There have been many popular and interesting food shops serving classics dishes for many many years, only till recent years when the older generations retired, the younger generations took over the shops to serve something more contemporary. My fav haunt, roast duck & curry fish head!... More

I had read other reviews that said there was construction and traffic but I really thought it might just be a minor issue and decided to still give it a try. What is happening on this street is more than just regular construction. A canal is being created to make a river in the middle of this road. The project... More

The food are delicious, and the price is cheap. Do note you are eating Street food and loitering on the alleys, take care of your belongings. The cooking areas are not hygienic and there are rats running around, food is still delicious though.

Has a multitude of things to do along the whole stretch. Easily accessible via public transport. A bit difficult to find parking spots. Many eating establishments available as well as shopping.

This place has changes tremendously over the years. It used to be very shabby but now it's very vibrant and busy, filled with new shopping mall. The downside of the development is terrible traffic congestion.

This is not designed for the locals, it is for those who lives down south in Singapore and some overseas tourist. It reminds them of what Singapore was like in the 1960s. The only reason for going through to another country with all the hassles of border customs going there and coming back is hoping to get cheaper bargains, food,... More

This street is always congested with traffic since it is under heavy construction. Many stalls along the way. Good for a stroll in the evening.
