Penang Street Kopitiam, Dataran Prima

Don’t be fooled by its name. It is called Penang Street Kopitiam not Penang Kopitiam. So the menu is a little different from the likes of Penang Village and so on. From the name, the assumption is that the kopitiam features food found along Lebuh Penang. There is the usual fares such as Hokkien Mee and Fried Koay Teow, but they have other interesting choices as well.

We tried the Cucumber and Celery Juice and Orange Juice, RM3.50 each. Each glass of juice comes with cubes of watermelon and one longan in it. That is a much welcomed addition!
The Fried Singapore Beehoon, RM4.90, is well, fried Singapore beehoon. On a scale of 1 to 10, it would score a 6.5, meaning it is edible and palatable enough. No complains there.
Try the Fried Rice with Sirloin Steak with Black Pepper Sauce, RM14.80, for fried rice with a difference. Or go for Nasi Bojari, RM13.80, which consists of nasi minyak, fried chicken, beef rendang, sambal squid, half of a hard-boiled egg and slices of cucumber. For both the fried rice and nasi bojari, it is indeed value for money as the portions are adequate to keep you sated for 2 or more hours.

Drinking water is RM0.30, which is acceptable, as more and more shops are beginning to charge for plain water. There is a 5% service charge and our bill totaled RM42.85. It is neither cheap nor expensive. It is more about value for money. The place features the typical kopitiam ambiance - marble table top, wooden chairs, and a sepia tone image (of Lebuh Penang).

The kopitiam faces the main road and is located where Mama Chop & Papa Grill used to be, the same row as Pizza vs Satay and Nasi Kandar Sedap.
