Now the town is a part of the RAPID development that focus as a petroleum brewing town (in my own transaction) this town has more and more visitor and people staying now. Recent spillover from Iskandar development in Johor has triggered some major development on Desaru too. with the new development over there. i would foresee there will be more and more visitor coming to this small town in no time. Well that is a good news for the folks of the town.
In this town, there is a an already famous restaurant for its seafood delicacy. Jade Garden Seafood (aka Fei Cui Seafood) has been famous of its dish of small lobster (young Lobster) with a superior gravy steamed. unlike frozen lobster that i had tried in Bali and Phuket... instead of using a frozen lobster they are using live lobster so that we could taste its freshness of the lobster. its meat is also more juicy and bouncy when compared to a frozen lobster when its meat are meshed (or easily torn off) when we tried to eat. there is totally no fun in eating a frozen lobster!! Boss also introduced others cooking style for the lobster but of course we go for the most famous so that i could introduce to all of you!
1) Tai Zi Fried mee hun, 太子抄米粉 - Mee Hun is fried to dry with whole prawn, with this method the prawn and the mee hun is full with fragrance of the fried prawn. you can easily imagine the fragrance now. OMG!! i miss this dished better than the lobster in fact!!

2) Salted Egg Fried Crab - it is a normal dish that we could eat in any restaurant. the difference is it is much more tasty than others, the gravy of the salted egg yolk mixed with the gravy, and its gravy is generously rich in the dish unlike other restaurant you can hardly had a spoonful of the gravy on the plate.
Jade Garden Seafood is a must try restaurant in Penggerang. it is not overly rated by the media in my opinion. i would welcome any recommendation in that area so that i had others thing to try on.
it is definitely worth the travelling time from Desaru about 20 mins drive there. As desaru you could hardly had anything decent there.
