I tried their nasi ambeng with beef rendang. the rendang was somewhat sweet - not to my liking. I have had better experience with nasi ambeng elsewhere. For RM 4.50 per plate, it's ok - in terms of price.

The nasi ambeng here is not completely authentic Jawa nasi ambeng (ie. severely missing the mee goreng) but it is still mouthwatering! The chicken is served piping hot and juicily tender (fried just before serving) and the accompanying gravy is delicious. The rice comes with small servings of ikan masin, tempeh, rendang kelapa and stir-fried longbeans.

Service is abrupt, and self-serve. Approach the counter, yell your order to the indifferent staff, catch a plate as it appears on the "service counter", find a seat somewhere in the food court and chow down. Payment works somewhat on an honour system. Regulars typically pay for their food back at the stall only after having their lunch; the staff rarely come to check & collect.

One of my favourite places to eat in JB for a weekday lunch.

I have been to a few places for nasi ambang, but I guess Mat Corner serves the best nasi ambang in Johor Bahru.
