Malaysia Kopitiam

Malaysia Kopitiam Review

The style of this subterranean hideaway may be Gilligan's Island meets Kon-Tiki, but the voluminous menu has Malaysian treasures to spare. Though menus with photos are usually cheesy, the binder here is quite helpful, since Malaysian cuisine is less well known than, say, Chinese or Japanese. Sticky rice with minced shrimp and chicken, okra and eggplant curry with tamarind, and savory noodles like laksa (helpfully categorized under "hawker specials," street food transplanted indoors) are among the stars. The place is a hit with groups despite its smallish size, because of its rock-bottom prices and the lively communal dining approach.
