Nasi lemak, interior decor, kaya toast, street view
Killiney Kopitiam, Shop 11, 108 Bourke st, Melbourne CBD
I was craving nasi lemak the other week so Daniel and I ventured across the road to Killiney Kopitiam. From the outside I didn’t even realise it was an eatery but the kaya toast on the menu caught my eye. For those of you who have been to Malaysia I’m sure you would have seen the Old Town White Coffee chain there – I LOVE the kaya toast they serve and got excited to see it on the menu here.
We went during peak lunchtime hour and to my delight there was enough room for Daniel’s pram and I to sit comfortably and the staff were very helpful sitting us near the kitchen and counter. You pay as you order so it’s good for those work lunches as you don’t have to worry about whether they split the bill and the crowd seemed to reflect this – groups of corporate folk grabbing a quick meal on their lunch break.
When my meal was served I was pleasantly surprised to see a generous amount of ikan bilis on my plate – normally when I order nasi lemak at other places they tend to skimp out on that and the sambal sauce. The meal was big, hearty size and even though I was full from it I still decided to order the kaya toast to try it. The kaya didn’t taste exactly like my favourite from Old Town White Coffee but I guess I’d have to go back to KL for that! All in all it was a tasty meal, great value and friendly service 🙂
