One of my favorite stall in Johor Bahru. Nasi ambeng missing the mee. Food was always good. Self service. Drinks order from another stall. 2nd best nasi ambeng (from my opinion). The problem is the best is only opened on weekdays. Weekend always crowded but service is fast. So no worries eveb if long queue.

The chicken is served piping hot and juicily tender (fried just before serving) and the accompanying gravy is delicious. The rice comes with small servings of ikan masin, tempeh, rendang kelapa and stir-fried longbeans. Service is abrupt, and... More

I have been to a few places for nasi ambang, but I guess Mat Corner serves the best nasi ambang in Johor Bahru.
