Mak Tim Restaurant - Sajian Asli Warisan Johor

This restaurant is located right at the roundabout opposite the Glaxo Smith-Kline (previously Sterling) factory near Taman Sri Keramat. It is at the one end of the DUKE Highway (still under construction). I've been eying this place for a very long time as the tag line 'Sajian Asli Warisan Johor' has been calling for my Johor-food-freak's attention.


The place is actually a corner lot house and you'll be able to see it from the main road. As a matter of factly, parking will have to be by the road sides. Ambiance wise, OK la.. not at all posh, more of a gerai style but at least the sky is covered if it rains but unfortunately the place is less than 50 meters from the DUKE construction site - we were there for dinner so the work had stopped for the day.

Of course, when at a restaurant claiming to be serving authentic Johor food, I would be looking forward to try their Laksa or perhaps Soto Nasi. From a nephew whom we met there that evening, claimed that Mak Tim serves the best Briyani Gam in town so KN ordered a plate of Briyani Gam Ayam and a glass of Watermelon Juice.

I ordered, what else, a plate of Laksa Johor and Ubi Rebus served with Sambal Tumis and a glass of Air Mata Kucing.

From KN's facial expression while eating the Briyani I know that the food wasn't up to expectation. I couldn't agree more with my Laksa Johor. It didn't taste like Laksa Johor at all but what I like about it was the noodle - they use the real home-made Laksa Johor noodle, not spaghetti like most of the shops selling this dish do. The Ubi Rebus was nice except for that it came in cold.


What was really nice that night was the Air Mata Kucing - boleh lawan la the one at Petaling Street! Cayalah!. I am sure there are many more pleasing dishes sold here and perhaps some of the dishes I've reviewed here may turn out just fine to some people's taste buds. I'd say, go try yourself, then you'll know.
