Trying Out At Ho Min San At Paradigm Mall, Johor

PARADIGM MALL AGAIN...

The next morning we were here again at the Paradigm Mall to try out another noodles shop called Ho Min San, recommended by Andy.  He told us that there are more choices of food here to choose from.  And that is the reason that we came to this newly opened mall to try out their new food besides window shopping...
Ho Min San... 
Impressive decoration from the outside... 
Most of the patrons were seated outside and 
I did not want to capture right into their faces.. 
LOL..
Started off with these appetizers.... 
As for the food, we ordered some side dishes to go along with our noodles.... 
This is a similar version to the "Siew Loong Pau" 
except that these are pan fried.... 
Aaron ordered Mala (hot soup) noodles...
And regretted at once... 
Too spicy for him, no doubt about that... 
Sorry, I couldn't help him to eat that...too spicy for me too... 
I, on the safer side ordered this salted vegetables with fried fish.... 
The fish was nicely fried, just the way I like it... 
Served with three pieces of fish... 
And a very small bowl of Tau Foo Far to test taste... 
Made both of us yearning for our Ipoh desserts after eating this... LOL.. 
As for the exact prices, I cannot remember but it should be around RM50 plus in total...

GO Noodles At Paradigm Mall, Johor

JOHOR FOOD...

Back in Johor, Aaron tried to cover as much as he could within the two weeks stay, yes, very intensive food trail.  And yours truly here is joining in the club, eating and widening the waist line together with him every single day.

Started off the first morning with Lai Kee noodles in Tun Aminah, second morning at Go Noodles at Paradigm Mall and after the first meal, we went for the most fattening desserts in town.  It is a wonder that Johor has a mass production of durians and selling at lowest price ever.  How not to eat when the prices are as low as RM1 per durian??   And this afternoon we saw a banner, Eat All You Can for RM5!!  Oh my goodness.... yes, mostly "kampung durians" which are selling that cheap.   We did not go for those Branded Names durians.... we still prefer the original taste from the old trees where there are worms squirming in some.... LOL...
At Go Noodles in Paradigm Mall... 
Bursting Balls with Mi Xian noodles... 
I prefer Pork Tendon noodles where there is a tinge of ginger in the balls... 
A bowl of Crispy Fried Beancurd Skin.... 
Why does anything crispy taste so good??? 
Yes, stopped by at Sutera to relax and to have these.... 
Irresistible... 
We opted for those RM5 each.... 
That is our first day round of durians!
