Penang Restaurant: Kopitiam Junction

Penang Restaurant, Kopitiam Junction, Old Town, Penang FoodSince the birth of Oldtown Kopitiam, there seemed to be more and more similar type of kopitiam mushrooming around Penang and other states.

Or perhaps, the aggressive marketing of Oldtown Kopitiam made us more sensitive towards any new opening of such outlets. One such outlet is Kopitiam Junction, located at the lower ground floor of Sunway Carnival Mall in Seberang Jaya.

The setting of this place is quite similar with all other kopitiam outlets that you could have mistaken it for the Oldtown Kopitiam if you had not read the sign.

Even the food ordering methodology is quite similar.

Our order of Nasi Lemak came first and the plate looked quite large. Each of the nasi lemak ingredients, ikan bilis, cucumber, salad, chicken curry, sambal and rice was put separately with an egg on top of the rice.

For a RM5.90 plate, this was quite worth the price. The rice was quite fragrant while the ikan bilis was crispy. The sambal was a bit spicy only but tasted sweet while the chicken curry was just right. The portion of the chicken curry was also generous as we got 2 pieces and some potatoes.

The toasted breads were slightly different compared to Oldtown kopitiam. The butter and kaya toasted breads comprised of two slices cut into four pieces. Somehow this arrangement made the breads looked so little.

The peanut butter bread toast was generous in its spread and they also sprinkled some sugar onto it. Depending on your preference, you may choose to like it or not.

The eggs on bread toast were something similar to Oldtown. You will need to eat this fast while it was still hot, else the cold taste of half boiled eggs could be a bit geli.

The white coffee was quite thick and strong, emitting the nice coffee fragrance every time when you take a sip. Aahhh… just like the old style.

The drinks here were quite interesting and adventurous. There was a selection of drinks that incorporated lemon, cucumber, honey, nutmeg etc… We chose cool cucumber with lemon iced drinks and it was quite refreshing.

This place is good as an alternative if you ever feel bored going back to Oldtown again. The price was quite reasonable and we found that certain items were comparatively cheaper than oldtown and bigger in size.

This could be an attraction since money got to be well spent these days. Don’t you think so? 

    Oldtown Kopitiam is originated from Ipoh. Although I always feel that the real kopitiam in oldtown serves better food, but still Oldtown will always be the choice for me to take a break or to meet up with friends.

    soo sean,

    places like oldtown and kopitiam junction or other similar outlets are great places to hang out and meet up with friends. We do occasionally meet up there as well for discussions... And the coffee is comparatively cheaper than Starbucks or Coffee Bean... sometimes you get nice enviroment too... :P

    Hi, Huat Koay...my first time here. You do have a nice blog. Hmnn..now I know where to surf next. Will be adding you to my bloglist.

    With so many kopitiam sprouting around it is a competitive business but good for us customers to have more choice tastewise.

    Looking at the pics, this place certainly looks like OldTown and it's giving OldTown a run for their money eh! Any outlets in the Klang Valley?

    Sweet Jasmine,

    Nice to see you here. Hope you'll enjoy the content and perhaps can try these places on your own too...

    Yea, we can have more choices and varieties, price and also taste wise. Each of them will try to outdo one another through innovative menu and competitive pricing. Their competition is to our advantage.. GOOD!!!

    PureGlutton,

    The last time we dine there, we asked one of the staff. He said this restaurant had another outlet at Ipoh, at Ipoh Parade if not mistaken. Not sure if they have another branch elsewhere...

    Jon,

    Given the price and portion, it's worth the money.. normally when we went there, especially during lunch or dinner, the place was quite packed. But you don't have to wait long before you can get place. Hope you'll enjoy it... :)
