Best in town for: Kopi O, Peanut Butter Toast
Worst in town for: Hainan Chicken Rice, seriously don't try this, its terrible.
CAT: I've been coming here for a while now, but it's only recently that I've brought Bear along to let her try out the food.
Kopitan is basically a slightly higher class Kopitiam, serving local dishes, coffee, tea and toast. They are similar to Old Town White Coffee, but at a lower price, and with a greater variety (and better taste too!)
Kopitan also does decent local dishes, in this case Singapore Fried Beehoon. Priced at RM6.50, its a bit more expensive than the ones at local coffeeshops, but its easily twice the size.
BEAR: I definitely prefer Kopitan to Old Town cause the food is just as good, much cheaper and the service in Kopitan is fantastic. There is absolutely nothing to complain about the staff there; they may not be locals but they are efficient and attentive. The food arrives in a blink of an eye (Err, okay, maybe a few blinks) and there is wi-fi so there's usually people there with their laptops and other gadgets.
My favourite there is the peanut butter toast. It's nothing fancy with no 'special sauce' it's just peanut butter in between two warm toasted bread but it taste pretty darn good at only RM3.20.
The other favourite of mine is the Kaya Butter toast.Thin slice of butter stuffed between two slices of bread with kaya. RM2.80
Suger, suger, na na na na na naaa, Honey honey, na na na na na naaa, you are my candy girl and you got me wanting you, Oooh~
So far, I've only ordered the Kopi 'O' from Kopitan. I prefer my local coffee black and hot. The coffee is nothing fancy-smeancy and tastes like any black coffee except maybe a little more 'kaw'. It's a little pricy to me at RM2.20 per cup but the price is still acceptable *mumble unlikethepriceofacoffeeat..mumble* Don't listen to CAT on the 'strong enough to put hairs on your chest' or I would have the hairiest chest in Penang.
