Johore Bahru: The Replacement – Lodge & Kitchen

JB - The Replacement Cafe - Jalan Dhoby

Last weekend, we visited a relatively new cafe in Johore Bahru as part of our cafe hopping adventure. By no means was this visit to The Replacement a planned one – our initial plans to visit IT Roo Cafe (which is supposed to be famous for their Hainanese style chicken chops) but had to walk away disappointed because they were closed for renovations.

P.S. The Replacement is an off-shot of the popular Faculty of Caffeine (along Jalan Trus – a quick 10 minute stroll away). I will be blogging about my visit to FOC shortly.

Both the Salmon Eggs Benedict – RM23.90 (pictured above) and the English Breakfast platter – RM25.90 (pictured below) were well within expectations.

There was nothing to fault in either dish – the smoked salmon was not of the overly-salted variety, the poached eggs on the eggs benedict were beautifully done and the scrambled eggs were of the perfect consistency. They were good enough Simple dishes done right, I’d say.

The drinks however, paled in comparison to the breakfast dishes.

Both Cappuccino – RM 10.00 and the Ice Mocha – RM 12.00 came across as rather mild which did not quite agree with my tastebuds.
