by Jermina

The feasting truly never ends in Johor Bahru, especially when everything goes for a third of the usual prices. 

Here is yet another pop-up bazaar that you have to check out the next time you decide to cross the border.

Located just 10 minutes away from the checkpoint, Kopi O-Rama Raya will take place from 3 to 5 May 2024 at Carpark Plaza Seni

The lineup includes over 50 vendors ranging from F&B stores to vintage thrifting and entertaining live performances from local artists and bands. 

Unlike other popular bazaars, Kopi O-Rama Raya is open earlier from 10am to 12am on both days so you can easily get a head start on your shopping.

Food-wise, you’ll be delighted to find an interesting array of local street fare. 

Hit up Mee Kari Nyonya for curry noodles with fishcakes or Fav Fatimah serving good ol’ nasi lemak with crispy chicken and sambal belacan. The latter comes wrapped in banana leaves so you can always take it on-the-go if the place gets too crowded. 

Otherwise, Bubur Matjitpat sells bowls of savoury porridge with hearty ingredients — a super comforting yet simple meal.

You can never go wrong with crowd favourites like Sausage Sizzle Seri Alam offering black pepper hotdogs alongside a side of nachos slathered in the sauce of your choice like sriracha mayo, jalapeno salsa or honey mustard.

Besides that, TacoBaa.JB serves corn tacos that are filled with shredded chicken or beef, crunchy veggies and nacho cheese sauce.

Meat lovers should check out Ayam Gunting Vamos as they offer thick slabs of crispy, fried chicken in a spicy and savoury seasoning (definitely for those who like their food to have an extra kick).

Alternatively, Abang Wagyu offers heavily seasoned char-grilled smoky beef steak skewers that’s made-to-order, while KaiJia Muslim Food has pan-fried dumplings served with their signature chilli oil.

Wash it all down and get your daily dose of matcha sorted at Unicha Matcha

They have various renditions of matcha drinks like the viral strawberry matcha latte, matcha creamy latte, passionfruit matcha latte, passionfruit matcha soda, and so much more.

Butif the queues are a tad too long, there are other vendors like Kopi Se.nja, Panda Coffee, and Lepau Coffee.

For those who aren’t a fan of caffeine, why not try out Ngopi JB instead?

They serve non-coffee drinks like the Supreme Chocolate, Green Tea, and Vanilla Strawberry Milkshake that come with a generous amount of whipped cream.

Craving for something sweet?

The Pine offers dessert croffles stuffed with cream cheese, nutella or biscoff spread and crunchy nuts (it’s a light snack that you can munch on if you aren’t feeling very hungry).

If I were there, I’d immediately make a beeline for Vanillicious as they have IG-worthy mini pavlovas topped with fresh fruits. 

These crisp meringue desserts come in various flavours to choose from like chocolate, matcha, mango, and coffee.
