Muar is a picturesque town popular for the delicious and inexpensive foods served by foodstalls and restaurants. Muar Town has a small population of around 110,000. The present town of Muar was founded by Sultan Abu Bakar and named as Bandar Maharani (Empress' Town) in 1887. The Muar town bears a striking resemblance to Malacca geographically, culturally and in terms of their inter-connecting historical and commericial roles. Muar is rich in history but due to the absence of proper historical record and archeological evidence, Muar's history mostly remains in oblivion. It is believed that the history of Muar started much earlier than the Sultanate of Malacca. In 1361, there was an account that claimed Muar as part of the Majapahit empire. Muar is also famous for its food. The most well-known local food are "Otak-otak" and "Mee Bandung Muar". Muar is also known for being one of the few places where satay (a Malaysian delicacy of skewered grilled chicken or beef) is served for breakfast. Visiting some restaurants and coffee shops in Muar would give nostalgic experience since the environment and food/beverage being served have not changed since the 60s and 70s. Coffee served by these restaurants has its unique taste which is believed to be comparable to the famed Kluang coffee.
