Chong Kok Kopitiam
Klang, Selangor, Malaysia – Halal
Started in 1940, Chong Kok Kopitiam is an old coffee shop in Klang, Selangor, where the locals go to to have their fill of coffee, toast, nasi lemak (fragrant rice with chilli and other stuffs), etc. whilst sharing a table with strangers who are most like from within the area (Klang); because the place is so packed even sardines in a can are looking at them wondering what it felt like being one of them humans in a Kopitiam. Yes, Chong Kok Kopitiam is famous.
Some of the delicious food served here.
Kopitiams or coffee shops are the Starbucks or Cofee Bean back in the day. They still are the “go to” places for locals who want to hang out and relax with some friends without needing to mentally calculate how much coffee one can sip during the duration of one’s time there before one has to spend a “grenade” on another cup. A cup of coffee at kopitiams will not make one cringe with the knowledge of a lightening wallet, and the coffee taste like real coffee because they certainly are real coffee done without the magic touch of a trained barista. This is what one gets at Chong Kok Kopitiam; real coffee.
Left: famous coffee. Left: toast.
Other than food, the appeal of Chong Kok Kopitiam is its old school charm. Dining at Chong Kok Kopitiam is like climbing into a DeLorean and travelling back into the past. The setting of the restaurant reminds me of a time long gone, perhaps back in the 70s to early 80s. The chairs, tables, etc. may have change but the ambience is the same.
Having my coffee and toast here brought back a rush of memories when I used to go to the kopitiams with my late dad for our cup of tea, coffee, toasts, and pau (buns with filligs), and even dim sum. Those days we used to share a cup where he would pour the tea into the saucer and I would drink from the saucer while he drank from the cup.
Old school ambiance; a walk down memory lane.
Should you be in Klang and want to take a trip down memory lane, do visit Chong Kok Kopitiam. The recommendations here are the nasi lemak (the one with side dishes to choose from), toast with half boiled egg on top, and coffee. There are other foods to try too but these are recommended ones here.
