A Must Visit for Me

Many people hate their service. I'm quite neutral about this since I come from Penang where sometimes you have to wait for almost 2 hours for a plate of Char Koay Teow. I have fond memories of this place. I was in Kelantan at the age around 5, and the smell and the colour of the red bricks of... read more

The roti Bakar made me thinks about White House and the uniqueness of the Kaya! Penang can't find such Kaya to be amazed and one thing... More

If you're looking to be ill-treated and love bad manners from the owner and the staffs, you've come to the right place.

The place is nostalgic, rustic (in a good way) and will make u wonder how they can sustain such business for so long. The roti bakar kaya (kaya toast) is crunchy but yet still fluffy. The kaya taste is very different from the commercial ones. I enjoyed the nasi tumpang as well (its rice coned in a banana leaf, i... More

Firstly does not open early, probly around 7pm. Don't go thinking of any extensive menu. But the locals consider it atreat to go to it. It is clean,not expensive, friendly service and what they serve is good.
