Kopitiam Style 19
I hardly step into kopitiam chains anymore. They have become more of a meeting place for business or friends. But I was so impressed by the cendol at Nyonya Cendol Cafe that I had to drop by their sister restaurant in Equine Park. It's called Seremban Station Hainan Coffee and the premise used to be occupied by Hailam Kopitiam.
If you love Nyonya Cendol, you should make your way to Summit Subang USJ as quickly as you can. There's a quaint cafe at the lower ground floor going by the name of Nyonya Cendol Cafe which serves possibly the best cendol in Klang Valley.
One of the perks of staying in Petaling Jaya is that there are many good Penang food around. Among them, Choon Prawn Mee House is one of my recommended places to go for Penang-style prawn mee. However, do note that the soup here leans towards sweet, so it might not be everyone's cup of tea.
Among my close friends, I am known to be extremely picky when it comes to Penang style Char Koay Teow. So when I say that I have found one that is the definitive version of this iconic dish that every Penangites in KL crave for, you just have to take my word for it.
Sisters Place, a kopitiam-like restaurant at Pacific Place in Ara Damansara is your next destination if you are serious about satisfying your craving for Penang Char Koay Teow. As a bonus, the Curry Mee is great too!
Poppo Kanteen is a cheerful restaurant that serves local delicacies with a few Asian-Fusion dishes thrown into the mix. The backstory was that Poppo used to be a canteen operator at a school in Batu Pahat, so her mission is to provide new food choices for the students and teachers. Because of that, there is a back-to-school vibe featuring traditional metal dishes and a menu that takes the shape of a 'buku latihan'.
Limapulo: Baba Can Cook is known for serving one of the best Nyonya Laksa in KL. For those interested to get taste of Limapulo's award-winning Nyonya Laksa, do note that it's only available on Monday, Wednesday and Friday!
