I went to JB (Johor Bahru) last month. Managed to try some good food as recommended by bloggers. Banana cake from Hiap Joo Bakery is one in the list. I was quite skeptical about it at first, "banana cake" sounds so ordinary. There must be a reason why it's so famous right. Too bad, only banana cake was available by the time I got there. I just bought the banana cake and walked around that area. There is another famous Hainanese shop, Restoran Hua Mui located in the same area, which I'm going to blog in the next post.

Excuse for the blurred photo. I only managed to take one shoot. The staff is packing the banana cakes, the customers are continuously coming in to buy.

The banana cake was freshly baked. Steaming hot. Smelled very nice too. I wanted to retain some stomach space for Hua Mui so I didn't have it until the next morning.

The next morning, it looks perfect still. Doubt, will it taste the same over the night?

I had the first bite. Now I 100% agreed it's the best banana cake I ever had. The texture is bouncily soft, moist and smooth. The banana aroma will make you one bite after another. Gosh, I gonna miss it now. 

Lesson learned. Don't judge the book from its cover. Though banana cake sounds nothing special but you gotta have it before you judge it. This is the food I would miss in JB among the rest.
