Kluang Railway Coffee
This kopitiam received a lot of publicity lately on Malaysian newspapers and is rated among having the best toasted bread and coffee in the country. (See my previous post). With that (after so much reading week in and week out in the Sunday papers) I decided to stop at Kluang during one of my recent trips to the seremban.
According to some of the Kluang folks, the kopitiam originated from the Kluang railway station but now they have opened a new outlet at the town centre. (as below).
A closer look ……
The kopitiam was decorated like an old railway canteen where once you’re in, it’s as though as you’re sipping coffee while waiting for your train to arrive! It looks so nostalgic inside and I wonder if they moved some of the planks and woods from the railway station.
Now, the interesting part. I order the usual stuff, coffee and toasted bread. The coffee taste good and surprisingly and unlike other kopitiams, it comes in a large portion, in a glass. The coffee is really good with a nice, pleasant aroma, though not the best coffee I’ve ever tried. It’s good, anyway.
Then, the toasted bread. hmm…. sadly,I don’t have good comments on it. It just tasted ok to me, like any other toasted bread where you can find anywhere. Well, it’s ok, not too bad. It’s great to have it with the coffee. Probably, my expectations are higher, thanks to the publicity. 😉
Anyway, heard that the nasi lemak and mee jawa are good, but I didn’t try it. Probably next time, when I stopped by the quiet and serene town of Johor, that is Kluang.
