We decided to tryout a new venue for breakfast. Actually it's my decision. We had been to this kopitiam about one and a half years ago. We banned the kopitiam after a visit and another second chance visit. Reasons: lousy food, poor services, expensive. But they had renovated the place and gave the kopitiam a face-lift 6 months ago. We had our breakfast at Pak Li yesterday and saw quite a number of people patronizing the place, and that prompted me to give them a third chance. (Note: this kopitiam is situated opposite the Pak Li).
Puan senget ordered Nasi Kerabu Ayam. Tak habis makan pun, tak sedap ler tu. The colour of the nasi is exactly the same as the colour of Puan Tod-tod's blue Gen-2. Ok ke nasi kerabu tu Puan senget? 'Kureeennngggg' jawabnye.
I ordered half-boiled eggs and steamed bread, thinking that the taste would be as good as those at Pak Li. Puan Sue-sue ordered the same.
To our surprise, they put the two eggs into this mug, and expected us to retrieve the eggs after 5 minutes. "Ni telur separuh masak, lagi 5 minit keluarkan" Duhhh..??!!??
We retrieved them after 5 minutes. Overcooked. Oh ya, the steamed bread, elastic and chewy. The kaya tasted like plain sugar.
Puan Tod-tod ordered nasi lemak. The menu printed:
* Nasi lemak biasa RM2.50
/Ayam goreng RM3.00
* Nasi kerabu RM4.50
If you were the customer, what is the price stated for nasi lemak ayam goreng? RM3.00? Nope, you're wrong. It's RM5.50. The ayam cost her RM3.00, a very small piece of fried chicken. Duhhh????!!! On top of that, the cashier at the counter can't even remember the price of their food (they offer very few items only) and the billing took them soooooo long. We waited and waited and waited, at the counter.
Overall, none of us was happy with the breakfast. The verdict? BAN THIS KOPITIAM!! Just BAN this M*z* Kopitiam. They never learn from the mistakes. Expensive facelift without improvements on the food and the services just can't lure the crowd.
