Holiday Foodsteps: Ipoh Central Kopitiam
We spotted the kopitiam as we stepped out of Foh San and despite being absolutely stuffed from all the dimsum, we couldn't resist the pull of the coffee so across the road we went, because that's just what tourists do in Ipoh - eat. One sip and we were sold - we knew we'd have to come back the next day.
Frothy, and with that lovely flavour that only local coffee seems to have - the perfect pick-me-up.
A gorgeous runny yolk on light, crisp toast.
The coffee shop doesn't only serve coffee, eggs and toast, of course (though I would have been equally happy if that was all it served).
Apom balik - the soft, fluffy sort.
Curry chee cheong fun
Hor hee, for the ones who prefer a warm, soupy start the to the day.
I'm always on the look-out for a good cup of local white coffee (the places that get their coffee right almost always get their eggs and kaya toast right, too) - so if you happen to have a favourite coffee shop in Kuala Lumpur or Petaling Jaya, I'd love to hear from you, one kopitiam lover to another.
