Old Town White Coffee @ Central Market, Kuala Lumpur

Malaysians are known as coffee and tea drinkers that’s why Kopitiams’ are all over the place specially in the City of Kuala Lumpur. In Manila, one of my favorite Coffee Shops serves Kopi – A Malay word for Coffee.

KL Kaya and Butter Toast

While walking around the Central Market yesterday, I saw an interesting restaurant that serves Coffee and my favorite Kaya Toast. Its been more than two hours since I had my not so small breakfast so I decided to try out Kopi and Kaya toast at Old Town Coffee inside the Central Market of Kuala Lumpur. If Starbucks is the largest coffee shop chain in the Philippines, The OldTown White Coffee is its equivalent in Malaysia.

In this coffee shop, a chit form and a pencil is conveniently located at your table so you can write down your order according to its product code. Once your done listing your order, you can hand over the chit form to the barista for them to prepare your food. No need to fall in line and wait for the barista to call your name as the food will be served to your table once its already availble.

I love the taste of their coffee and its aroma, something that I like to smell whenever I crave for coffee. After visiting their website, I learned that their coffee beans are being roasted at a different temperature with the addition of caramel in the roasting process.

I’m glad I tried this coffee shop and experienced it coz Ive been wanting to visit Starbucks near Bukit Bintang just to have a coffee fix, Now I know where to go for coffee In my future trips here in Kuala Lumpur.

Aside from their coffee, I also tried their Kaya & Butter Toast and their Peanut Butter Toast. Its really different when you taste the food where it originally came from. The Kaya toasts in Manila are good until I tasted the Old Town White Coffee’s version.

I really want to visit their branch in Bukit Bintang but I don’t have too much time since Ive been exploring foodie places and interesting tourist spots here in KL. How I wish they have branch in Manila so I can just go back anytime I wish to:(
