fried popiah @ kopitiam

Dear fellow tasters,

Kopitiam franchise restaurants are a dime a dozen these days.  This one is the one without anything trailing behind the kopitiam title and they have an outlet open in the LG level West Mall area of Grand Indonesia Shopping Town.  I went there one late afternoon to meet up with my friends who apparently already had lunch.  Thus, I decided to grab some bite there since I haven’t had any, while my friends only ordered some coffee and tried some of my food.

My orders that day were the singapore chicken curry with prata bread, fried popiah, and also the kopi-c ping to drink.  The cutely-named ‘kopi-c ping’ is actually their nickname for coffee with creamer and ice (kopi is Malay/Indonesian for coffee, c short for cream, and ping means ice – not sure what language this one is from, probably Hokkien).  The coffee was ok, not really special but I fairly enjoyed the food.  The chicken curry was thick and quite tasty and dipping the prata into the curry proved to be quite delicious.  The fried poppiah was a bit similar to spring rolls or ‘lumpia’ that you can find in most restaurants and somehow I felt that the taste was already Indonesianized.

The taster’s notes:
Favorite dish – the chicken curry and popiah
What to try next time – maybe try the char kway toew and carrot cake
