Along the road to the airport from Bayan Lepas, there’s a coffee shop which is always crowded in the mornings. People throng the place as early as 7am for Joo Leong Cafe’s toasted bread and half boiled eggs. The coffee shop is a bit hard to notice because there’s no signboard or any indications it is selling such breakfast. The many number of vehicles parked outside the coffee shop which stretch as far as 50 meter away show the popularity of this establishment.
A piece of toasted bread, two half boiled eggs served in a cup, and a cup of hot Milo are RM4.10. Frankly it is quite expensive for a simple breakfast like this.
The toasted breads are done in a very original and nostalgic way, with only a layer of butter spread on top. A bottle of castor sugar is provided to let you sprinkle all the sugar you like on the toasted pieces. So they are both salty and sweet.
The half boiled eggs are for you to dip the toasted pieces if it suits your taste. For me it was a new experience, and it was quite good actually.
Joo Leong Cafe operates from as early as 6.30am and it’s located directly opposite the post office along Jalan Sultan Azlan Shah. I am not sure what they sell in the afternoon but Ipoh Salted Chicken is sold here in the evenings. Try it if you are too lazy to prepare your own toasts and half boiled eggs lol.
