Overdue Entry - Review on Uncle K Kopitiam

I got the photos ready for this post two weeks ago. Somehow I can't find the time to write the entry by then. Various activities follow and I was completely tied up with my work so much so that I forgot about this entry.

This Uncle K Kopitiam is situated at SACC mall, just a few meters away from the Asiari. Good ambience, friendly staff, but.... (I'll explain later)..

Puan A and Datin joined me for lunch. The two burung kakak tua (Puan Tod-tod and Puan Sue-sue) were on leave. Caya tak si Datin tu tengok paper pasal bola sepak? Caya tak Datin tu minat bola sepak??

Puan A ordered the toast. The size of the toast was big, with generous spread of peanut butter and kaya. Looks tempting, but taste blunt. The bread was chewy. If you have denture, don't order this one.

I ordered the beef meatballs with fries. The meatballs were so elastic that you can play table tennis with these. Kinda reminds me of a movie by Steven Chow where he uses the meatball as substitute to the ping-pong ball. The taste? incomparable to the tasty and juicy meatballs in the Ikea's restaurant. Again, if u have denture, don't order ya, unless you wanna play ping-pong right on the spot.

And Datin ordered the sandwich. Tuna sandwich, they claimed to be the in-house favourite - "Uncle K all time favourite tuna sandwich". Datin didn't quite like it. Who would? it's icy cold, basically very dry and chewy (again). Let alone the neither salty nor saltless taste.

Well, Puan A and Datin had already decided to ban this kopitiam. I'm still considering. Should I give them second chance?

[Yazrie] Aaahhh.... that's the film I'm talking about. Ada satu adengan diaorang main ping-pong ngan meat ball tu. Yuh, I love Karen Mok too.

Erm.. pasal meatballs yg elastic tu, macam kunyah sotong yg liat. Well, not the say a bad experience, but it's certainly a meal that I don't really enjoy.

[Feroz] Hi Feroz, thanks for dropping by and the comments. Indeed it was a loooong time. We went back there after that actually. Some of their dishes are really good, but some are still remain as it was without improvements. Anyway, the staff are friendly.
