The Muslim observance of Hari Raya Puasa in Malaysia is still three months away. For those who regard Lontong Johor as comfort food, and others among InterNations food explorers who wonder what on earth is Lontong Johor, come and try a unique cuisine influenced by the Arabs, Bugis, Javanese and the surrounding Malay Archipelago.

The owner of this halal restaurant, one of the few that serves authentic Johor cuisine, hails from the progressive southern Malaysian state of Johor, hence the name. I'm sure he can be persuaded to share some stories of why it's different from other states, including throwing in a royal tale or two.

Arrive early and try everything!

If you wish to see what's going on at the Perth Japan Festival in the city, you must leave at 11.30, board Bus 31 and arrive at Forrest Place in time to catch a Tsugaru Shamisen performance at 12.20, and Okinawan dance and traditional music from 1:00 to 2:00.

I think you'll find the above a fruitful and enjoyable way to pass your midday Saturday.
