The much anticipated OldTown White Coffee restaurant had finally arrived in Melbourne and being part Hainanese from Ipoh (Hainanese is a type of Chinese dialect known for running kopitiams back in the days), I was very keen on getting my Malaysian fix here.
For those unfamiliar, kopitiams are akin coffee shops that usually serve traditional Chinese brekkies such as soft boiled eggs, toasts with butter and kaya (a pandan infused egg custard) and of course, coffee. These establishments are very popular in Malaysia and much sought for quick and cheap meals.
OldTown White Coffee sachets are commercially available in most Asian grocers and is something that my family usually drink on a daily basis. Now that I have given you a summarized history lesson, let's talk about the food here!
