Kopi Street Cafe @ Kepong

Never did I know that thre's a street named 'Kopi Street' existed in Malaysia. Nor was there a street full with restaurant serving 'kopi'. This is one of the many newbies in the restaurant business with such a fancy name to it. Everyone knows that food business is mushrooming across Malaysia especially in Kuala Lumpur.

So many different types of names has been used and each and every one of them are trying to name their restaurant closest to of the original chain that has spurred across the nation ie 'Old Town White Coffee'. Just be a little more observant when you take a drive across town and you'll know what I mean.

Kopi Street Cafe is situated in Kepong. A very close friend of mine brought us there to have lunch together with buddies of ours. My buddies 'R' and 'K' suggested that I should try them out as they served good food and good coffee ~ better than the 'original'.

As usual such 'cafe' dishes out pretty identical food amongst one another. You'll find that most hawker food are made available eg curry laksa, assam laksa, nasi lemak, fried noodles, etc..... As well as some Western food eg chicken chop and fish & chips. Now we all know why such 'cafes' are famous amongst Malaysian.

Hazelnut White Coffee @ RM3.50+
This cool glass of  'Hazelnut White Coffee' is truly unbelievable. It was exactly what 'R' has described and it was really a wonderful feeling gulping it. Cool!

Curry Noodle @ RM5.90+
The highlight of the day belongs to this lovely bowl of 'Curry Noodle' which came with a huge portion of my preferred 'bihun', some beansprouts, some sliced chicken meat, 'foo chook', long beans and a couple of prawns.

I couldn't believe how delicious this bowl of noodle was. It tasted exactly the same as those I used to have when I was a kid ~ 'original taste' ~ and I was extremely happy to have found a cafe who serves this. And the 'chilli' that came with it only made things better.

Dry Curry Noodle @ RM5.90+
'K' opted for another type of curry noodle which was as good as the ones we had. When this plate of noodle was brought to us I could smell the aromatic aroma filling up the room and it really did took my attention towards it. Came with a few chicken in bite size and some potatoes.

Grilled Chicken Chop with Fried Rice @ RM10.80+
This is one plate where East meets West. Grilled chicken chop tasted really good, indeed. It's meat was succulent even though it was slightly over-grilled. Certain parts of the chicken was 'tough' but because it was so well marinated it tasted really good even with slight imperfections to it. Fried rice was simple yet tasted ok-la. Rice could be better and they should improve in it since the chic tasted a class better.

Conclusion : We were all speechless and unable to move an inch after consuming all the lovely food we had. We were very satisfied with the food choice and already thinking of making another trip here. Food is good, price is friendly, menu is colourful as the rainbow, service is commendable and coffee is fabulous. They really do make the 'original' cafe look like 'mickey mouse'. A 3.5/5.
