Malaysia’s best banana cake is made here in the 101 years old bakery Hiap Joo bakery in the Johor Bahru old town
Welcome to episode 83 of my trip all around Malaysia. If you haven’t seen the previous episodes you can watch them here:
The Johor Bahru old town is a very old and traditional neighborhood right in the center of Johor Bahru city. A place where its very nice just to walk around, have a look what’s going on the eat or drink at local traditional places. One of the best things to do in Johor Bahru. One place is really famous here: The The Hiap Joo bakery right in the center of Johor Bahru’s old town. This bakery is operating here for over 100 years, it’s a family owned business which is especially famous for their banana cake. In non-corona times especially many people from Singapore come over to Johor Bahru just for the Johor Bahru Banana cake from the Hiap Joo Bakery. Of course, I had to check it out as well. I got even the opportunity to have a look inside and see their special oven, which es responsible for the special taste of their banana cake.
I am currently traveling Malaysia – all around the country – and try to find as many hidden gems and stories as possible. I am going to stay in Johor Bahru for around two weeks, so if you are interested in more Johor Bahru vlogs, Johor Bahru food vlogs or Malaysia vlogs in general, stay tuned for more.
