Besides Tangkak Famous Food - What Else To Do In Tangkak Johor


Tangkak (东甲) Johor is also known as "Fabric Town" or "Syurga Kain" in honour of its many textile shops. Many people know that Tangkak most famous food is the Tangkak Beef Noodles. If you are making a visit to Muar, you can pop by Tangkak to taste some of this popular dishes here. You can read about our Muar food trip from this link

Besides the textile and food, Tangkak, Johor is also known for the treatment of skin allergy by Klinik Pakar Dr Wong Tangkak which is located along the main street of the Tangkak town. There are many people who have special skin allergy seeking treatment from this clinic.


On our trip to Tangkak recently, we explore some of the popular food that is served in this town. While searching for the Tangkak Beef Noodles, we found a Tong Kee Bak Kut Teh shop which is just the next door to the Tangkak Beef Noodles shop.



At the entrance, the strong aroma of the Bak Kut Teh captivates our senses and we decided to try it out (as we like to explore some options).


We ordered a bowl of Bak Kut Teh and a clay pot of dried Bak Kut Teh. We the Bak Kut Teh arrives although the aroma was strong it lacks the strong flavour of herbs that we like. I would rate it as an in-between version of the Kuala Lumpur and Klang version.

After that, we make way to the next door shop where we ordered the Kuang Fei Tangkak Beef Noodles. Taste-wise, it was as expected, nothing much to really shout about,



At RM8.00, the portion of the noodles was way too little for a town offering comparing to my favouriteTangkak Beef Noodle in Taman OUG which is RM8.50 for a small bowl, but having a meat portion that was much more than the one at Tangkak.



We ordered 2 bowl one which is, the first one was the mixed ingredient while the second was just beef balls. We order one takeaway with mix ingredient plus an add-on of 4 beef balls. When we reach home, they beef ball was missing end up we paid RM12.00 for this takeaway (felt cheated although the boss specifically asks me how many beef ball I wanted to add). Next, we made a visit to a few textile shop along the main road of Tangkak to look around on some of the offerings. 


We were told that Tangkak also has a shop that sells this Roti Terbang. We decided to check it out from the Internet which later we found that they have moved out. A check with one of the staff at a textile shop says that they have since moved out to the next kampung which she gave us the direction.

We manage to locate this shop and was lucky as it is just opening its shop at around 4pm. We were treated to the flying Roti Canai performance. Apparently, this Pak Cik is very famous as even Martin Yan has featured him in one of its TV programs recently.


Overall, the trip was nothing extraordinary for the food that we tasted at Tangkak but nevertheless, it was a nice experience to visit this little town.
