Kopi Hai Peng in Kuantan, Malaysia

If you happen to pass through the city Kuantan when travelling on the East Coast of Malaysia there is at least one spot you should have on your list. Kopi Hai Peng is a very popular Kopitiam (coffee house) among locals, but also many visiting Malaysians from Kuala Lumpur and other parts of the country rave about it.

It is open from the morning on until 6 pm and is always crowded. Families with children, Workers taking a break, rounds of old men, housewifes, some tourists, people of all origins gather here for their dosis of caffeine.

Actually what makes it special to me in the first place is this particular atmosphere – it is the first place I encounter in Malaysia with an ambiance reminding Southern European cafés.

But what makes it special to everyone else here is of course their Vietnamese style coffee which is roasted in a particular way giving it a barbequeued, charcoal like flavor. For getting their bestseller you have to order an iced Hai Peng Coffee; you’ll be served iced coffee with condensed milk in sealed plastic cups and its flavor really has potential for addiction.

Of course they also serve food, breakfast buns with the traditional Malaysian Kaya jam ( containing coconut milk and pandan leafs) , or sweet peanut butter and banana sandwiches.

Small, but always packed

Of course the always requested Nasi Lemak and Nasi Dagang are also on offer as well as Mee goreng and other savoury dishes. I also tried small banana leaves filled with fermented rice, a traditional treat which nearly tastes like Sake, the Japanese brew. (check here and here for more detailed pics of food)
