Warong Hijau / Warung Pokok Ceri is a small, roadside, heartland Malaysia stall located in Johor, within a 20 minute drive from the Johor Bahru Customs, Immigration, and Quarantine Complex (CIQ). Officially, stall owner and boss Rosli doesn't have a name for his stall, but common word of mouth names by which people generally refer to this stall are Warong Hijau, or The Green Stall, and Warung Pokok Ceri, or The Cherry Tree Stall.

Ambience at Warong Hijau / Warung Pokok Ceri is clean and decently comfortable. Diners sit on casual plastic stools around foldable plastic and metal tables, and the shade of the nearby cherry trees keep the place cool. The overhead shelter blocks most of the elements, but because of the surrounding natural greenery, don't be surprised to find insects around.

Service at Warong Hijau / Warung Pokok Ceri is casual and friendly. Largely self-service, where you queue and place your order. The family members will serve orders to your table, and collect payment tableside. They have a high turnover of diners here, so empty / dirty tables are quickly cleared. Hygiene standards are passable enough, though I prefer to wipe down the cutlery before using.

Food at Warong Hijau / Warung Pokok Ceri is traditional, classic Malaysian dishes. Local favourites feature, and this looks like a place for heartlanders to enjoy a simple, affordable, comfort meal. Generally, taste of most dishes is very good. In fact, this is among the better meals I've had in Johor Bahru. Portions are sized for individuals, and prices are affordable even for locals. Budget about MYR RM8 / SGD $2.70 per person for a meal here.

The Mee Rebus (MYR RM5 / SGD $1.70) here is tasty, but while the gravy is rich and thick, it also has a more pronounced sweet taste than usual. Mildly spicy and filling. Worth ordering!

A signature dish here, the Laksa Johor (MYR RM5 / SGD $1.70) has a thick, sour savoury gravy that is almost paste-like in texture, clinging to the soft spaghetti pasta noodles. The initial sharpness makes you crave more, and I like that the dish is strong without being overpowering. Pleasant and well-balanced. Worth ordering!

The most popular dish here is the Nasi Lemak (MYR RM6.50 / SGD $2.20), among the better versions I've eaten! The rice has a lovely delicate fragrance, and you can choose as many ingredients are you wish to add. What most people go for is the fried chicken, cooked only in small batches, it's snatched up the moment it's ready. The chili sambal belachan is sufficiently savoury spicy, with a good kick, and a slight burn. Highly recommended!
