Day 2 official marked the start of the whole Alshaya Food Tour which we will be taste testing 4 different American-based restaurants. Starting with IHOP, PF Chang, Shake Shack and lastly, Texas Road House. This was also marked the start of my work as we are required to hand in our food review about the restaurants on the same night. Our reviews will act as one of their consideration in bringing the 4 restaurants into Asia.
After a great night sleep in the Sheraton Sweet SleeperTM Bed, I am all fresh and ready for the challenge.

Finally, we had a weekend off for ourselves after all our endless work. I planned a surprise staycation for him at The Puteri Pacific Johor Bahru.
The Puteri Pacific Johor Bahru is conveniently located on heritage row of Jalan Trus, just a few minutes away from City Square Johor Bahru as well as the Jalan Tan Hiok Nee Culture street where you can do your cafe hopping. The Johor Bahru Customs, Immigration, and Quarantine Complex (CIQ) at the causeway to Singapore are also within walking distance.
I booked a 2D1N staycation at their dulex room on the Executive floor with breakfast at Agoda.com for $122.44.
After the short food trail I had previously at Taman Sentosa, I had been looking forward to my next food adventure in Johor Bahru.
Cafes had been sprouting out almost everywhere in Johor over these past few years. Singaporean had also starting to move into Johor to do their cafe hopping.
Thanks to Jia Hui from FaithJoyHope and Hazel from HazelDiary for planning the cafe hopping session.
Most of the cafes are located at.
