My wife and I together with our friends and their families made a stop at this coffee shop for breakfast. It is a small, old coffee shop located beside an equally popular coffee shop (Kong Heng). It has big mirrors on its wall and is also known as 'Hall of Mirrors'. We can cross order dishes from either coffee shops except for the koay teow noodles.
When we were there, the place was packed although it was a Monday, maybe because it was the holiday season and there were many outstation customers and tourists just like us. We ordered the koay teow noodles (kai si hor fun) but we had to cancel the order because the order queue was too long and the dish did not arrive on our table even after a more than half-an-hour wait. The egg custard, said to be the best in town, should not be missed by those with a sweet tooth. The 'chee cheong fun' was very smooth and different from the Penang version as it did not come with the dark prawn paste (har ko).
The pork satay seller operated from a stall between the two coffee shops. The satay was thick but tender. Satay made from pig innards were also available. The spring rolls (popiah) and 'lo bak' were of acceptable quality. The white coffee was good. We did not order any 'yong tau fu' as we were not prepared to wait.
Parking is a big problem in this vicinity because the roads are narrow and the parking lots are limited. Do make sure to park only in the designated parking lots and use the scratch-and-display local council parking ticket. One of my friends found a summon under his car wiper on his return because he did not use one. Alternatively, park in a private car park in the adjacent road and pay three ringgit per entry.
This coffee shop as well as the others in this vicinity has become a very popular tourist haunt through the power of word-of-mouth advertisement. Perhaps the food quality here has been compromised due to the overwhelming demand. But then, do come and try but be prepared to wait and endure some discomfort.
