Kopi & Toast

Special thanks to Kopi & Toast for extending this food review invitation.

Kopi & Toast (咖啡吐司) is a small eatery along Chulia Street Ghaut (Gat Lebuh Chulia), just across the road from The Press and The Legend Nyonya House. The shop's entrance has an overhead signboard with its Chinese name carved in golden characters.
Kopi & Toast was recently renovated to provide air conditioning. The dining area has several wooden tables and stools, giving an appearance of a homely coffee shop. Meanwhile, the interior brick walls are covered with sketches of London and Paris. There is even a retro-style gramophone on display.
Nasi Lemak With Curry Chicken (RM9.99) was recently added to the menu. The rice is dyed by the extract of butterfly-pea flowers (蝶豆花). Other traditional ingredients for nasi lemak are sambal (chili paste), anchovies (江鱼仔), roasted peanuts, sliced cucumber, fried egg and crackers. In my opinion, keeping the sambal and anchovies separate will result in a crispier mouthfeel.
The bowl of chicken curry contains chicken thigh and potatoes. The curry is remarkably appetizing despite the fact that it is slightly dilute today. Nevertheless, the lovely blend of spices really tantalizes the taste buds.
The bestselling dish at Kopi & Toast is Cheese Noodle (RM9.99), which is cooked and presented on a skillet. The instant noodle is served with mozzarella cheese, sausages, potatoes and fried egg. The cheese solidifies as it cools down, so it is advisable to consume this dish while the cheese remains molten.
As for beverages, the Galaxy (RM7.90) is probably the most unique choice. The drink is a mixture of apple cider vinegar, grape juice and green tea. The sharp taste of vinegar really helps to quench thirst. Butterfly-pea flower juice is also added, giving this iced drink an alluring purple color. Customers who are not used to apple cider can try the lemonade-based Fantasy instead.
Besides all-day breakfast, Kopi & Toast also serves a special burger called Cheezy Cheese. Unfortunately, I am not able to try it today. Based on what I have tasted so far, the food here is commendable. The pricing is also surprisingly affordable despite the fact that there are many tourist attractions nearby.
