Menu Please Bistro (N1.48083 E103.76612) is located along Jalan Maju of Taman Maju Jaya, Johor Bahru. The Bistro is easy to locate because not far away from the Plaza Pelangi, but vehicle parking can be quite challenge over here due to Jalan Maju is one of the busiest street in Johor Bahru.
The environment is warm, cozy and relax, with some creative recycle decoration, I like it very much! You can slowly view through some of their creative deco photos below…
The salad served in the unique way which was in the glass jar. That was creative! The Sesame Duck Salad was mixed with ‘char siew’ sauce and tasted good! Beside the Saseme Duck Salad, they do serve Crispy Tofu Salad and Glass Noodle Salad with Prawn…in the glass jar too…

Salmon Coulibiac in Wikipedia.
The bite was surprising! The mixed with the rice, eggs, fresh salmon, mushrooms and spinach was excellent! The dish provided of different type of satisfation compare with other main course I had before, it become one of the reason to visit Menu Please Bistro because this special and rare dish in Johor Bahru.
We catergorized this as A Must Try dish!
They serve 10 types of main course with the affordable price from RM14.80 to RM29.80.
The next dish was the Asian Delights – Menu Please’s Laksa.
The taste of the laksa was slightly different from the JB local laksa, it more close to Singapore taste. I like the curry leafs on the laksa and it’s difficult to find it around the JB area nowadays…
They have 4 types of Asian Delights to try out if you choose to have the local foods…
Braised Beef Cheek with homemade Focaccia bread (another main course)
Another Must Try dish if you are a beef lover. The beef cheek preparation took few hours before it can serve on the table. It was tasty and tender, the gravy was yummy too! It’s advise to having the Focaccia bread with the gravy. Delicious!
Coming next was one of thier side dish : Oriental Potato Cake with Tamarind Dip.
Crispy on the outside and soft at the inside, it was hot! The Tamarind Dip went well the flavorful potato and carrot. The bite was interesting! This dish will not be serve by the Bistro start from August 2013, due to the long preparation. If you want to try out the nice crispy potato, you have to act fast!
The Bistro has 7 types of side dish for guests to select.
Dessert time! Warm Chocolate Cake
It looked similar to Chocolate Volcano in some other cafe, the warm choclate cake well presented and not too sweet, nice to enjoy after the sumptuous meal…
The second dessert was Creme Brulee also known as burnt cream, crema catalana, or Trinity cream.
The dessert consisting of a rich custard base topped with a contrasting layer of hard caramel. Mr Jayson (the chef also the owner of Menu Please Bistro) advise to try it with the top layer and the custard together. I like it very much!
There are total of 5 types of dessert in the Bistro, I believe definitely one of it will suit you.
We had a chat with Mr Jayson Ang who is A freindly and humble guy, smile most of the time. He was the Chef from Four Season Hotel and Marina Bay Sands Hotel in Singapore few years back, and now he decided to come back to his hometown (Johor Bahru) to start his own business and present all the delicious and creative foods to his customer. It’s also a good opportunity for the local who no need to travel to Singapore but still be able to try the nice Western and Asian delicacy from the bistro.
The prices is affordable, all from RM4.80 – RM29.80.
We like the environment and especially the creative deco of the Bistro. I will patronize this bistro more often in the future, to explore more on their foods.
