Authenticity in the taste of its Johorean fare is what sets Don's Warung apart from the rest. You see, Don's Warong originated from the famous Uncle's Don, under the Don family’s F&B business chain.

Mee Rebus Johor
We started off our meal with the all-time famous Johor food - Mee Rebus Johor. This is a MUST-HAVE for any noodles lovers. They aced in this dish with the rich and creamy sauce that coats every single strand of the yellow noodles.
Simple yet delicious in its own right, noodles served with beef slices, bean sprout, tofu goreng, hard-boiled egg and the crispy deep-fried dry shrimp crackers for the extra crunch. Truly makes for the classic comfort food quality for any true Johoreans out there!
Nasi Goreng Kampung Muar With Ayam Goreng Berempah
For someone like me who must have some rice in a day, I just have to order two of their hot favourites namely the Nasi Goreng Kampung Muar and Nasi Lemak Kukus Johor, both served with Ayam Goreng Berempah.
Thumbs up to the Nasi Goreng Kampung Muar With Ayam Goreng Berempah. The Johor's version of Nasi Goreng was a bomb, not oily but full of Wok-Hei. I can taste the various kind of spices and salty ikan bilis (anchovies) coating each grain of the rice. Quite a filling dish that comes with ayam goreng berempah, fried egg, fish crackers and housemade sambal on the side.
Nasi Lemak Kukus Johor With Ayam Goreng Berempah
Fragrant rice infused with coconut milk, halba, and pandan leaves makes a good-tasting nasi lemak. Don's Warong gets it right in this dish with the well-prepared aromatic coconut rice paired with all important homemade sambal which has the perfect balance of spiciness and yet not too sweet which I really hate in some of the nasi lemak I tasted before.
Served with the usual condiments of boiled egg, ikan bilis, peanuts, sliced cucumbers, I only have one minor complaint about this dish. Their Ayam Goreng Berempah was not freshly fried upon each order and I can taste it the on the first bite. Guess the chef must have pre-fried batches of chicken to speed up the serving time instead of frying it on the spot just before serving.
DW Sup Tulang
RM 16 (With Rice)
RM 16 (With Rice)
We heard that their Sup Tulang was a hit with diners, so we give this dish a try too. The crowd favourite, a reminiscent of home-cooked Johorean dishes, the DW Sup Tulang is a flavoursome soup made from a combination of spices boiled long hours with beef bones and meat, potatoes, carrots, cabbage and served topped with chopped spring onions.
Don's Warong Classic Sup Tulang
A hit when eaten with warm white rice together with the fried garlic and spicy sambal kicap chilli padi.
The Don Burger
One of the best-selling Western food on the menu has to be the Don Burger, 1/4 pounder of pure beef patty served with buttered buns and topped with beef bacon slices, fried egg, tomato, lettuce and onion rings for the complete burger.
Keropok Lekur MokCik
Those visiting during teatime will be thrilled to find cucur udang spesial, keropok lekur MokCik, tahu telur spesial, and pisang goreng Johor.

Kopi Muar With Ice Cream
Not to be missed is Don's Warong - Kopi Muar With Ice Cream which packed a punch with the rich coffee flavour in the famous Muar roasted coffee beans. The aromatic coffee with milk goes well with vanilla ice cream!
