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.

teh-tarik

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.

    At least by the looks of the Kaya Toast, it’s actually more thick compare to the ever growing franchise. There’s only just one in Atria? Or there are other outlets as well in Klang Valley?

    In M,sia if u walk along “kaki-lima” and killed by falling sighboard, 50% chance it,s the kopitiam sighboard. That,s the problem with M,sian, if one business thrive 2000 others will follows…rotiboy,donuts,cha chan teng,snooker craze during 80s and many more. Anyone who can toast bread and make nasi lemak open a kopitiam..those who dun know bread toasting join franchise….some genius made millions in turning the business into maney scam. They are evrywhere..it,s red ocean.So, we can,t diffrenciate which one offer good food…for me I avoid going. The only good thing is that they are killing Starbucks.

    Nice to hear that there is a good Kopitiam shop. Hate seeing those Old Town Kopitiam and others popping out everywhere.

    The last picture of the outdoor of the Kopi Time, looks pretty nice and cosy.

    I like charcoal toasted bread. There are only few old kopitiam in Penang still serve this charcoal toasted bread. But I don’t know where…

    The so-called “kopitiam” these days are not actually “kopitiam” per say. They are actually modern cafe shamelessly decked up to appear as “kopitiam” and charge you cafe prices.
    Personally I still go to authentic “kopitiams” if I come across them. I think there only a few left in KL and PJ. You can still find them in smaller towns. It is where they only serve drinks, and snacks like toasts, butter cakes, curry puffs, butter roll and packet nasi lemak (for breakfast). Oh yes, plus free daily papers to read and stray dogs or the owners’ pet dog idling around the shop!

    Sorry la! just happen to see Kopitime’s comments and want to add on! I’ve tried their nasi lemak. Its fantastic! good serving to fill your tummy.
    Btw their curry puffs are always sold out speaks for itself, ya!

    Thank you for the wonderful comments posted about us so far. Please also do share of any negative experiences you had with us so that we can improve. We have opened a new outlet at First Subang Mall Unit G20, Jalan SS15/4G Subang Jaya. The outlet is still in the midst of minor touch ups and renovations. However, this will be our first concept or flagship outlet in which you will get a very different experience compared to our 2 other outlets in 36 Jln S22 and OneUtama once it is fully touched up (pricing of food will be the same! Even though its situated in a more expensive shopping mall). Please do feel free to visit us there and share with us any of your valuable comments. Thanks to all the long time Kopi Time fans who have sticked with us since opening of our first outlet in Atria. We hope to move back to Atria soon, once the building is re-renovated.
