Rosmarino Italian Restaurant
When it comes to Italian restaraurants in Johor, Rosmarino definitely emerges as one of the tops. Rosmarino strikes a perfect balance between prices, taste, atmosphere and service. Their aglio olio and lobster pasta are not to be missed. You can be sure to find fantastic Italian cuisine with a more affordable price tag and romantic atmosphere here at Rosmarino.

Flowers in the Window
This two-storey cafรฉ Flowers in the Window is built for Valentine's Day! Its quaint floral-themed faรงade is unafraid to be over-the-top, extending even to their seasonal homemade cakes and drinks menu. By the same team as Roost Juice Bar round the corner, it is almost impossible to not love this place. The star desserts on display are the chocolate beetroot cake and citrus syrup cake. From coldpressed fusion fruit juices to their flower-infused teas to coffees, all of which had a premium quality to it.

Bev C'afe
The hunt for Bev C gives you a mini adventure that test your chemistry! When you find it, you will be charmed by Bev C's whimsical vibes. Its enigmatic visual illusory signboard and then the little hideout upstairs are all very un-Singapore. I could spend the whole day there, with a book and just overlooking Jalan Tan Hiok Nee to people-watch. Some of the best cakes around Bev C include their famous Chocolate Mint Pie, the all-new Gula Malacca Banana Pie, and the interesting Spicy Sunfruit Pie. Their handcrafted beverages include espresso ice-cubes with caramel and milk.

Sugar on Top
If your girlfriend loves cafehopping, she would be thrilled with Sugar on Top with its endless yummy pastas and desserts. You must not miss the matcha lava cake here - forget all you've tried and look for this one here. I prefer their first outlet cafe - the Taman Pelangi branch.

Wheat & Wit
The cakes at Wheat & Wit are the sort that are quietly pretty, and taste absolutely delicious. You can celebrate V-Day with multiple cakes if you'd like here. Their Chocolate Raspberry cake and Raspberry Cremeux are my favourites. No doubt they are super photogenic too!

Shakespeare Milkshakes
Shakespeare Milkshakes will guarantee a sweet time with you and your adventurous date. Go for their Caramel Granola Yogurt for sharing, but if you're not into that, their specialty milkshakes Matcha Adzuki gives you an opportunity to drop a pick-up line like: We're a Matcha Made In Heaven.

How to get around Johor Bahru

Romantic V-Day Foodie Adventure 2017 in Johor Bahru

1. By foot๐Ÿ’ƒ
From the Causeway, you can access several popular dining areas on foot, including the restaurants in City Square Mall, the stretch along Jalan Wong Ah Fook and Jalan Trus. To get to the cafes and dessert places at Jalan Dhoby and Jalan Tan Hiok Nee, you will need to walk about 10 minutes and pass by the 'Little India' of Johor.

2. By bus ๐Ÿšƒ
You can take buses at the interchange on the ground floor. Take the escalator right after you exit from the railway station. There are several buses that lead you to major landmarks including KSL, Pelangi Mall, Holiday Plaza and more. From there, you can walk to most of the restaurants located near these places.

3. By taxi ๐Ÿš•
This is the most straightforward method. Many people may still have reservations on how safe taxis are in Johor. I have not met any problems with taxis yet. However, some cab drivers may try to take the further route to maximize the meter fare or suggest a lump sum for a short distance (most likely during peak periods). As a gauge, a smooth ride from City Square to KSL should be around RM7 by meter, and you should not accept more than RM15 for a 'lump sum' fare.

4. By Grab ๐Ÿš•
This is my most preferred way, it is the most efficient, cheaper than taxi, and very comfortable. The only downside is that you need data (or a SIM card).
