Din Tai Fung Restaurant is now opened in City Square Johor. It is located on level 2. You can easily find this restaurant going down from the escalator outside Uniqlo Store.
The restaurant was already busy when we passed by at 10.45 am this morning. Slightly after 11 am, a queue was formed but we didn’t find out about the waiting time.
We were in Penang last week. I was down with food poisoning so I could only watch helplessly as my dear wife enjoyed the xiao long bao in Din Tai Fung Restaurant at Gurney Parade. So with Din Tai Fung Restaurant in City Square, this would be another excellent lunch option for us.
By the way, City Square is dressed up for Christmas. Vendors are already starting business at the main atrium. More stalls should be coming up soon.
So it might be a good idea to hop over to City Square for some shopping and dining during this school holiday. We saw quite a few families dragging luggage with their young children walking towards City Square after clearing custom and immigration. Spending a night or two in Johor Bahru might be a great getaway too.
To get to KSL Mall, you can take a bus from JB Sentral bus terminal after clearing immigration before heading into the City Square Mall. Bus SM1 or IM17 will get you there and the cost for bus fare is just RM 1.50. The ride takes about 20 minutes. Alternatively, you may take a taxi and the cost is RM 11.50 at JB Sentral.
The money changer at the immigration complex showed an exchange rate of S$1 to RM 3.08 this morning. It attracted quite a queue as well. This looks like a good place to change money if you have forgotten to change sufficient Malaysian notes during a last minute rush to take a break in Johor.
Well, stay safe and have fun during this year end break!
