Friends & Fig – Cafe with homely food at Johor Bahru JB
Friends & Fig is a relatively new café that opened in late November 2015 and serves homely food in a café setting, good for meal with friends and family. Their cold pressed juices are designed by a natural juice therapist and there are more than 5 to choose from. We enjoyed the Malibu Passion (RM15) that tasted citrusy and refreshing – predominantly passionfruit taste which is good for a quick detox.
Other than cold pressed juices, there are much to offer on the menu- mains like Italian pasta, pizzas to Asian cooked meal.
We settled for the smoked duck carbonara – smoked duck breast tossed in cream sauce that could have been more generous and richer. We hoped for truffle-infused pasta when we return in the near future!
We had to get this CHURROS with chocolate sauce and I(CE) SCREAM (RM12, SGD4) as they caught our eye upon first glance of the menu. Guess something like this in Singapore would set us back by double the price or more at > $8. So, just whack and order it right?
HOT Crispy churros drizzled with chocolate sauce and a cup of cookies and cream ice cream with fruits. We love the hot and cold sensation from eating the desserts. The slight hard crunch on the exterior and dense yet not spongy interior make this a delectable dessert.
There is set lunch promotion at RM18.90 with soup and drink and is just a stone’s throw away from customs, even nearer than Johor Bahru City Square.
