Paradigm Mall, is one of the largest shopping center in Johor Bahru, offers a diverse range of dining options with over 80 food and beverage outlets. Whether you’re a food enthusiast or just looking for a day-trip destination, this mall is sure to satisfy your taste buds.

To help you navigate the numerous dining options, I’ve put together a list of recommended dishes that are sure to surprise and delight. So, be sure to try these delicious treats during your visit to Paradigm Mall Johor Bahru.

  1. Go Noodle House

Go Noodle House has recently become famous among diners for its great food, honest service, and affordable prices. What makes this noodle restaurant stand out is its unique noodle dishes. The noodles are slightly thicker than traditional rice noodles and their taste depends entirely on the soup.

When ordering, you can choose your preferred soup base and mains. Additional mains are available at an extra charge. Go Noodle House offers five interesting soup bases to choose from, including pickled chili pepper, superior, tomato, tom yum, and salted vegetable.

For those who do not enjoy spicy food, the tomato soup is highly recommended. The soup has a thick consistency and a sweet and tangy flavor that will leave you licking the bowl clean.

If you look around the restaurant, you will notice cabinets on the walls filled with bottles, each with a name. These are wines that customers can buy from the store to add to the sanxin soup to enhance the taste. Customers can also reuse the wine when they come back next time.

The meatballs at Go Noodle House are a must-try. The large meatball is solid and wrapped in a smaller meatball. When you take a bite, the gravy inside the meatball sprays out immediately, similar to eating a dumpling. The gravy is sweet and has a slightly oily aroma, making it a customer favorite.

Overall, Go Noodle House is an excellent choice for those looking for delicious and affordable noodle dishes. With friendly service and a variety of soup bases to choose from, it’s no surprise that this restaurant has become a popular destination for food lovers.

2. Awa Mee Bar

Awa Mee Bar, located on the fourth floor of Paradigm Mall Johor Bahru, is committed to providing guests with affordable yet heart-warming noodles. They have a unique and meticulous approach to preparing their soup noodles, which involves double-boiling each pot of soup for four hours at 100°C and then pouring it into a pre-heated 280°C pot. Additionally, they serve the bowl of noodles separately from the pot of soup, requiring diners to pour the soup over the noodles or vice versa. This method maintains the piping hot temperature, ensuring that diners enjoy the dish in optimal condition.

Awa Mee Bar’s signature dish is their own kneaded lissome noodles, which are served with generous amounts of ingredients that justify the price tag. Bold tasters can choose from AWA 13 Tonkatsu Dry Noodle or Superior 18 Seafood, both of which offer unique and rich flavors. For a clear and direct sensation, try the Stewed Fish and Vegetables Soup with a pleasant sour taste or the Wako Superior Tonkatsu, which carries the essence of bone from hours of simmering. Alternatively, the Awa signature spicy soup offers a mild hot sensation.

If you are still hungry after your noodles, Awa Mee Bar has various Chinese side dishes available, including Braised Pork Belly and Golden Salted Egg Chicken Claypot. To complete your meal, be sure to try Awa Beancurd, which has a unique taste and smooth texture that is second to none. You can enjoy it in its original flavor or add some caramel for a different type of savoring.

3. Dragon-i Restaurant

Experience a memorable culinary journey at Dragon-I. The inspiration behind this restaurant comes from the rich and diverse culinary offerings from China, specifically from the regions of Shanghai, Szechuan, Beijing, and Lanzhou.

Dragon-I prides itself on its signature dishes such as xiao long bao (Shanghainese steamed meat dumplings), la mian (hand-pulled noodles), and other traditional Chinese dishes that have been preserved for over a thousand years. The highly skilled chefs from China prepare all dishes using top-quality ingredients to ensure authenticity in both presentation and taste.

The Chinese name of the restaurant, “LONG DE CHUAN REN,” means the descendants of the Dragon (LONG), which also happens to be the name of the restaurant. This is not just a mere coincidence but emphasizes the importance of serving authentic culinary art from ancient China.

4. D’Shanghai

D’Shanghai is a family-friendly restaurant that provides a nice seating area and an oriental-style ambiance for customers to relax while enjoying their meals. It has a similar feel to Crystal Jade or Tim Ho Wan but at a more affordable price.

One of the key highlights at D’Shanghai is the Xiaolongbao, traditionally steamed in little bamboo baskets and typically referred to as soup dumplings. Children always enjoy finding ways to slurp all the soup that oozes out whenever they take a bite. Another delicious option is the Rice Wine Xiaolongbao, which has wine incorporated into the soup, adding more fragrance and flavor.

The Steamed Liu Sha Bao is a tasty treat containing a mixture of egg custard and salted duck egg yolk. When you bite into it, the mixture flows out of the bun like lava, which has a strong salted egg flavor and tastes savory-sweet. The skin of the Liu Sha Bao is soft and fluffy, making it best eaten while still hot.

Steamed rice rolls are another popular dish enjoyed by both adults and children, and a must-order whenever having dim sum. The translucent, chewy skin wraps savory minced meat and fresh, springy shrimp that’s hard to resist. For an extra spicy kick, dip the Steamed Rice Rolls in the chili sauce offered by D’Shanghai.

Apart from the conventional fillings with char siew and prawns, D’Shanghai also offers Steamed Rice Rolls with U-Char Kuih and Carrot, Yam & Yam bean, providing an array of options to suit every customer’s taste.

Paradigm Mall is a very family shopping place, because not only there are many delicious foods, but also many shops and facilities that can keep you here all day long!

So how do you get here? Rather than taking a bus, I would recommend you to take a taxi from Singapore to JB (Johor Bahru), such as SGMYTRIPS, which I use every time.
They provide Singapore to Malaysia taxi for everyone, so no matter where you want to travel to or from, they have you covered. Each 7-seater MPV is equipped with a professional driver to pick you up and you can decide where to get on and get off. Choose their services, so you don’t have to worry about traveling across borders.
