George & Dragon at JPO

outlet at Johor Premium Outlets

When George & Dragon opened in Johor Baru in 2002, this English themed café attracted a loyal clientele who appreciate a taste of traditional English and Irish tavern food.  Guests thrill to the fun of sitting in charming old-world ambience at custom-made wooden tables fitted on cast-iron sewing machine stands. 

Now the medieval English charm of George & Dragon can also be experienced at the brand-new Johor Premium Outlets at Indahpura, Kulaijaya.

From the coat-of-arms shields and swords that adorn the walls, the knight’s shiny suit of armour standing sentinel next to the wine chiller to signature furniture that features cast-iron table legs, their new George & Dragon outlet located at Low Street of the Johor Premium Outlet reflects the same charming identity.

“Our menu here is the same as in the city outlet,” said Patricia Chew, Executive Director of George & Dragon Café.  She said that at the moment, the café serves two choices of set meals for lunch while there are ala carte items for dinner.  This set meal comprising a soup-of-the-day, a choice of drink and main course, caters to the quick lunch most shoppers prefer because they only want a short break before continuing with their shopping.

“In the evening, there is a more leisurely group of visitors at the Johor Premium Outlets,” she added.  She said many people come to enjoy a stroll around and dine in the restaurants here.  The ala carte menu includes a menu of Appetizers, Soups, Salads, Pasta, Entrees and Desserts.  English fish ‘n chips, black-pepper lamb, grilled chicken and chicken chop as well as seafood specialties are popular choices. 

Meat-lovers can pick juicy New Zealand sirloin, T-bone or Rib-eye steaks that are marinated and grilled to perfection before being served with their signature sauces.

Traditional English scones for tea
Shoppers also drop in for homemade English desserts like Trifle, Apple Pie, Chocolate Fudge and Blueberry Cheesecake that are perfect with freshly ground fragrant coffee brewed in a menu of hot, latte and ice-blended recipes or a choice of English tea served by the cup or pot.  Many also choose to enjoy the epitome of Englishness – freshly baked hot scones served with a dollop of whipped cream and jam, savoured with sips of warm English tea.

“We have more space here,” said Chew about the spacious café that can seat up to 104 guests including single diners at the bar.  Just as in its Johor Baru outlet, the café has a full bar stocked with local and European beers as well as a wide selection of wines.

For the festive season, the café has created a range of luxurious food and wine hampers that are a joy to give and receive.  George & Dragon Café is located at No. 1 Jalan Glasiar, Taman Tasek, Johor Baru and at Suite 204, Johor Premium Outlets, Indahpura, Kulaijaya, Johor.

    A pleasant ambience, but unfortunately we (myself and friend from London) didn't find the food very good! He ordered Fish n Chips and left half of it on his plate. However, this was about 2 years ago and it could well have improved! :)
