Niniq Bistro & Bakery @ Taman Pelangi, Johor Bahru

The word of mouth played a strong attraction for me to head to Niniq's Bistro & Bakery. My family said that this cafe is open by one of my hometown Holylight church member, their foods, cakes and breads are fantastic.

Walking into this simple yet elegant decorated Bistro, along with the soothing sound of music, additionally the friendly waitress & waiter all greets you "welcome!" with their smiles is a twist to JB's restaurants standards.

This tea time trip with my family motive is to taste their cakes & drinks!

Marble Cheese Cake @ MYR6.80 - was nothing special but an average nicely well Chill Cheese Cake that can be purchase at any decent bakery.

Tiramisu @ MYR6.20
- surprisingly I declare in my search of the best bakery and cafe that can produce awesome Tiramisu, this is one of the best i tried comparison to Secret Recipe (I call it normal coffee cake), Starbuck (extreme fail), and Coffee Bean (way down the average standard). The presentation is a luring and it doesn't taste rich, and it doesn't stay in your mouth long enough to become cloying. However, it is lack of Coffee Rum & probably Cheesy feeling...

Azuki Bean & Matcha Mousse MYR4.80
- If you looking for a dreamy cake when you walk into this cafe. Do try this! The Sponge cake inside is similar to some cake shops green tea cake. But, this they use and have enough share of Azuki Bean (well known as Japanese Bean Paste) enough to blend well with the green tea sponge cake, match mousse and the dry coconut shavings that is coated all over. It's something different that I would definitely recommend.

Let's now focus on the drinks they serve there.. Pretty disappointing since this is suppose to be a Bistro where walk in customers to sit back enjoy their drink and actually snack on this bakery cakes and breads.

Iced Caramel Coffee MYR8.80 - cafes that actually have many different types of coffees would have at least a decent Iced Coffee. This is particularly lack of coffee & caramel taste, along with too much milk which over power it.

Iced Caramel Latte MYR8.80 - Latte in the Italian form means "coffee and milk". This glass of "Latte" is no difference from the Ice Caramel Coffee, only they added a scoop of vanilla ice-cream.

Jasmine Rose Tea MYR7.80
- this however, is special, the amount of tea leaves and flowers are just right! With slight disappointment from the coffee I shared some tea with my family and we had went for 4 refills and impressed that the flavor only gets slightly mild.

Overall, this is a nice place to sit back, relax, read newspaper (available there), and enjoy! Bill come up to MYR47.55 for 3 persons tea-time.

Will be heading back to test their food soon......

Special note they also do Catering which might be pricey! :)
