Old Hwa Mui Kopitiam at JB old town ....

Somehow when my wifey and sister in law braved thru the heavily congested traffic in the JB town area to get to this famous and popular kopitiam in JB, the fussy me as well as my kid were complaining. Moreover, I haven't taken my breakfast yet except a protein shake while my kid just finished his tuition. Probably, both of us were grumpy due to our empty stomach while stuck in the jam. It also doesn't help either as this eatery was crowded and we gotta wait almost 30 mins to have our food served , besides spending some amount of time looking for parking and walked quite a distance. :P 

Anyway, after all the complaints and grumpiness from both father and son, somehow we are glad to come to this place...as the food is good!! 

Crowded but I like their nostalgic decor... which I guess it's being like that for decades!

This is really an old 'authentic' kopitiam ... unlike those modern ones which trying to be 'nostalgic'. No air cond..no fancy design.... it's like a time warp there.

Finally my glass of ice kopi ... the kopi really 'kau' (thick). I had two cups!!

My kaya toast which I shared with my kid

And , that's my brunch ... a Hainanese chicken chop. It's very delicious and I don't mind going there again!
They have a branch near Sutera Mall, which is much comfortable but I guess nothing beats the original. And, this place is halal too where there were many Malays and Indians having their lunch there. After that,  we took a walk down memory lane in JB old town. Its becoming like Jonker Street there but I didn't take many pixs there.  I will try to share some pixs of the town area if I go there again. :)

  11. Oh ya, this place was recommended to me too! I quite like it when I drove down to JB and Singapore 3 years ago. It was very crowded when we went but it's good food.

    I also like Kam Long Restaurant (the fish head curry by Chinese) that's in JB too.
