Kopi Time Kopitiam @ Atria Shopping Centre, Damansara Jaya
Just when you thought there couldn’t be more Kopitiams, new ones are coming up every now and then. It could only mean one thing, yum cha is Malaysians’ favorite past time, and Kopitiam business is still a growing business in Malaysia.
Some of my friends like to yum cha a lot, and they go Kopitiam hopping around frequently. And one of their recommendations is Kopi Time at Atria Shopping Center for the toasts. By the way the Kopitiam’s name is quite catchy.. Anytime someone asks “Hey what time is it?” You can simply say “It’s Kopi Time!” lol lame joke. Anyway, good yum cha place must be shared right?
The main reason the toasts are popular is because Kopi Time doesn’t stinge on the butter and the breads are charcoal toasted (located next to the counter), which gives it a nicer fragrance. It’s a no-brainer really. Just make sure your toasts are generously coated with butter and kaya, reasonably priced and the crowd will come on their own.
Usually I won’t want to blog about Kopitiams, because I feel they are way too commercialized and the food quality deteriorates with every new franchise opened. But I will make an exception for Kopi Time. Besides, I think this place is well known among the locals but not featured on food blogs prominently enough yet.
A set of two slices is around RM2.20 to RM2.50, forgot already.
Besides the usual butter kaya or French toasts, Kopi Time offers something new – Tuna Sambal Toast. The first bite quickly reminded me of the spicy tuna bun produced by Gardenia. The taste is quite similar but with butter added, and a lot spicier. Not bad at all.
My only complaint is that the drinks here are quite pricey. A normal cup of teh ais or teh o ais limau would have set you back at least RM3.
There are two seating areas, air conditioned one that is within the shopping complex, and the outdoor one which is quite windy even during a hot afternoon. Not a bad alternative for TT if you are bored with your usual place.

This is actually the article or so called review I submitted to BestFoodJunction’s Restaurant Review Contest held earlier this year. Somehow the the magazine either went scammy suddenly, or they simply do not bother anymore, because there was no update on contest. Based on the contest’s rule, I am not supposed to publish this, else

I have been eyeing to try Toast Box for a long time because it has managed to attract a beeline of customers constantly. Unlike J.Co, where the queue dies off after the donut craze went down. Besides, their toasts looked really tempting because they prepare them openly. Good tactic to create buzz and attract customers.

Was doing some shopping alone at Ikano Power Center not long ago and settled for a quick lunch at Kluang Station. Of course, I did some homework (looking at what other bloggers’ reviews) before that, just to know what’s good and bad. Apparently the Hainanese Chicken Chop was one of the popular items. But, I

I just returned from attending my sister’s wedding held in [tag]Penang[/tag] two days ago. Just before I boarded my train back to KL Sentral, I treated my family a dinner at Black Canyon Coffee, AEON Seberang Perai City.

OldTown Kopitiam at Queensbay has more food and drinks available for order compared to the other branches. One of them is Twin White Shake, a much thicker version of the usual iced [tag]white coffee[/tag]. Priced at RM3.80, it is only available cold and its serving size is very small. It was a nice try, but

So I was on a mission to [tag]Ipoh[/tag] for [tag]white coffee[/tag] last weekend, thanks to [tag]8TV[/tag]‘s [tag]HoChak[/tag]. Few weeks ago, the last segment of the programme introduced Ipoh white coffee. The moment I finished watching it, I said to myself, “Dang I must get some of those!” And whaddya know, according to a camera-selling-uncle I
