We visited the restaurant because it's the daughter of Ah Kaw (阿九） who is Famous with his San Low Fried Bee-Hoon (三楼干米粉）, it's look just a simple fried Bee-hoon (rice vermicelli) but it has a different taste from others, difficult to describe by words and you have a taste it yourself! This is the Special dish which only available in Johor Bahru. I had been having this simple meal more than 2 decades ago which was cooked by Ah Kaw (阿九) and we like it very much till today. Ah Kaw (阿九) started his own recipe since year 1979 for the popular fried bee-hoon since he was a cook at the San Low Seafood Restaurant at Pelangi and now he's even pass down the recipe to his children...
Our order was taken by the lady boss (Ms Yeo Wen Hui) - very friendly lady and patiently introduced their signature dishes to us.

The San Low Fried Bee-Hoon was fried to slight charred and yet not burnt on the surface, processing enough 'wok-hei' to carry out the unique flavour and texture. Even the surface was crispy yet moist enough on the inside, furthermore...Not oily! The simple ingredients which 'press-fried' with the bee hoon were just eggs, shrimps, fish cakes and slices of vegetables. The Bee-hoon went well with the special 'Sambal' provided by the restaurant!
Must try the Unique Fried Bee-hoon if you visit the restaurant!
The Sambal served with the San Low Fried Bee Hoon
The Fried Chicken with the special shrimp sauce was our all time favorite! They got the taste right!
Singnature Tou-Fu was Nice! Crunchy at the skin and soft inside! Like it!
Another 'Must try' dish in the restaurant. Beware! It's Hot!
Singnature Tou-Fu of Ming Ji Restaurant
The Claypot Assam Fish Head was cooked without the coconut milk, and we be able to taste the pure Assam flavour in the fresh fish head.
Stir Fried Kangkong Belacan was average and the Marmite Flavour Pork Ribs was soft and tasty!
