"This is a simple yet full of traditional atmosphere coffee shop is located in a back lane in Campbell Street, George Town. They serve the classic "Nan Yang Breakfast" like toast (Roti Bakar with kaya and butter), Half- Boiled Egg, Coffee, Nasi Lemak, Curry Puff and so forth.
I have been there for few times, I felt it was just a normal coffee shop. While, I visited again yesterday with my boyfriend. And that was the very first time I felt that their toast and coffee were so nice. Seriously delicious. It is absolutely worthwhile to try. And this is a favorite cafe to many of my friends too.
1.The Toast, it is baked in a traditional way - with charcoal. The taste of charcoal baked toast is totally
different from the one from oven, it is crunchier and smell greater. In addition, the combination of aromatic Kaya and Butter is always the best match to "Roti Bakar".
ii) Cup of Coffee - It was too sweet for me. While it was just fine when I dunked in the toast and the " "sweetness" was just perfectly diluted.
iii) The half boiled Egg - this is also another classic "Nan Yang style Breakfast" that I couldn't miss, adding some soy sauce and some peppers are must.
Normally they put few packs of Nasi Lemak on the table. You can take it yourself when you would like one. The Nasi Lemak looks spicy where you can see all the Chili when first unwrap it. But, it is not too spicy. The Ikan Bilis are too salty for me, but the chili is quite nice. And I like the strong Pandan aroma on the rice.
Lastly I want to show how I usually eat the toast. Dip it inside the half boiled egg. Some may feel it is disgusting, but please believe me, it is just a perfect match. You can savor the whole essence of "Nan Yang Style Breakfast" in one time.
There are photos displayed on the wall showed the visitation of Pg Chief Minister before.
The first time I was here the service of the staffs were very rude. They were not friendly at all. I told myself I would not pay a visit again, who knew I came again.
However, after trying for a few times, I felt the attitude of the staffs becoming better. Maybe because of the service change and I felt the dishes are getting nicer as well. The cafe is always crowded and most of the time we need to stand beside and wait for a vacant table.
It is quite hard to find parking here, if you’re driving, try to turn into Lorong Kampung Malabar (next to Campbell Street).You just need to walk for less than 100m."
