The One Kopitiam I've Completely Combed Through

Nasi Padang, originally uploaded by Camemberu.

I still had quite a few KK Hospital visits to clear this month but I'm glad most of these are over. In the course of 2.5 years, I've become more familiar with the Kopitiam food court there than I'd like. Yes, I have tried every single stall there! Most of them left me "once bitten, twice shy". But the nasi padang is not too shabby. Nice rendang (most times). Crunchy peanuts and ikan bilis. Delicious achar. Good sambal as well. But go early as their best morsels run out fast.

I also like the ban mian or handmade noodle stall. The stock is flavourful enough and the noodles are done just right - not soggy even in hot soup. I tend to prefer ee-mee (Poh Chai noodles) but their other noodles are not bad too. A most simple but warm and comforting meal.

The Indian-Muslim stall has gone downhill a bit though. Perhaps a change of chefs or management? They used to have Indian rojak that was not bad. I preferred their peanutty sauce to that of Saji's at Waterloo Street. Recently the rojak seems to have disappeared and the briyani now sucks. Fortunately, their mee goreng still kicks ass but I won't hold out hopes that it will stay that way.

Incidentally, all the food stalls here are rated a sparkling "A" for cleanliness (well, they are in a hospital after all). We often joke that the cleaner the eatery is, the less tasty the food will be. But no matter how bad the food at the Kopitiam is, it's stilll better than what's being served upstairs in the wards.
