Nice Cosy Place for Breakfast at Uncle Chow, but Slow Service

Had a nice bowl of Kway Teow Soup and coffee here for breakfast. They open at 8 am. Come early! I was the second table of the day, but the food took 25 minutes to come. Service was a little slow, but otherwise it's a nice cosy place.

In my opinion this was the best place for kopi and laksa in Tanah Rata. Go off hours or be prepared to wait as there is only one cook. It is worth the wait. Both Mr and Mrs Chow are very friendly. We enjoyed looking at their plants as well. Wish we had found it sooner.

The environment was good. Food wise - we ordered half-boiled eggs, some nyonya kuih, and main meals. It tasted delicious for a simple breakfast. I ordered white coffee, disappointed as I can tell it was those 3 in 1 packet white coffee. The price was rather expensive, it costed about RM9.90 for a bowl of curry laksa.

Whenever we are up in GH, we will visit this place. Uncle Chow is a very friendly man, it is always nice to chat with him. Food is good and simple. Good service too. My 2 girls like it here too.

Sit outdoor, enjoy the cool air and breakfast over a hot drink. Inside, the cafe is clean. The owners are always cheerful and make you feel welcome.
