Don's Warong @ Plaza Damas, Sri Hartamas - Authentic Johor Street Food

Don's Warong @ Plaza Damas, Sri Hartamas - Authentic Johor Street Food

Don's Warong @ Plaza Damas, Sri Hartamas

Don's Warong which is located B-0-4, Plaza Damas, Jalan Sri Hartamas 1, Taman Sri Hartamas, Desa Sri Hartamas 50480 Kuala Lumpur is famed for its popular Johor street food. You can check out Don's Warong Facebook page for more information.


Although it has been opened for business for more than 6 years now, we have just gotten the chance to taste some of its famous dishes such as the Laksa Johor (only served on Sat and Sun) and many more dishes as we take the gastro journey to the South of Malaysia, Johor.


Don's Warong has its origin from the famous Uncle Don which is a Malay style Warong in Sri Hartamas. With some recipes pass over from the Uncle Don, you can be sure of its authentic taste. You can check out the published recipe book Johor Palate which is co-author by Don's Warong owner mother (sister of Uncle Don); if you want to try your hand at cooking some of these dishes.

Mee Rebus Johor

We start off our dinner with an order of the famed Mee Rebus Johor (RM12). Served with a thick gravy with condiments on the side such as the fried keropok, bean sprout, beef meat, eggs and Taufu Goreng is a real treat.

DW Sup Tulang

Next on our table is the DW Sup Tulang (RM15). The broth is boiled with a combination of spices with thick chunks of meaty bones that the tender meat falls off from the bones together with potatoes, carrots and onions make it a wholesome meal with a bowl of steaming white rice.

Dons Warong Nasi Lemak Kukus Johor With Ayam Goreng Berempah

We heard that the Nasi Lemak Kukus Johor With Ayam Goreng Berempah (RM12.50) was very popular with the crowd at Don's Warong. An order of this dish is probably mandatory. There are only 2 things that distinguish between a good and bad Nasi Lemak for me. One is the rice must be rich and aromatic while the second thing which is the sambal should be a balance of sweetness, savoury and spicy level. In this 2 points; it passed our benchmark for a truly delicious Nasi Lemak.

Nasi Goreng Kampung Muar With Ayam Goreng Berempah

If you are not a fan of the Nasi Lemak; you can try out the Nasi Goreng Kampung Muar With Ayam Goreng Berempah (RM15). The Fried rice is fried with spices and the chef has fried it to the right Wok Hei. This Fried rice is served with keropok and a special sambal belacan sauce on the sides.

The Don Burger

At Don's Warong; besides serving the Johor popular dishes; you can also find a few western dishes; one of the best western dishes is The Don Burger (RM19) which is a quarter pound beef patty sandwiched in between buttered bun which is topped with beef bacon slices, fried eggs, lettuce, tomatoes, onions rings and bedded with a special sauce. Served on the sides are Fries.

Cucur Udang Special

There are a few appetisers that one can choose from at Don's Warong; either as a starter or for your in-between meal snacks. One of the snacks that we tried is the Cucur Udang Special (RM8). The batter is in-house made and fried ala-minute to ensure that you get to enjoy this crispy on the outside and soft on the inside snacks. It is served with Mak Li homemade chilli sauce.

Keropok Lekor MokCik

The second appetizer we tasted is the Keropok Lekor MokCik (RM9)- this is a dish not from Johor but from the east coast states. This keropok is also served with  Mak Li homemade chilli sauce.

Ais Kacang Johor With Chocolate Sauce

For desserts; we were introduced to the Ais Kacang Johor With Chocolate Sauce (RM8). 

Kopi Muar with Ice Cream

or the famed Kopi Muar with Ice Cream (RM11.50). It is kind of like float drinks, instead of a fizzy drink; they use the famous Muar coffee as its base.
