A James Beard semi-finalist, Kopitiam reminds me of living in Southeast Asia with traditional Malaysian food dishes and a decor that resembles a 'coffee shop' (Kopitiam stands for coffee shop in Hokkien). The cuisine is Nyonya cuisine with sprinkles of influences from the Portuguese, Dutch, and the British. Try their Kopi-Tarik, hand pulled coffee with sweet condensed milk. So delicious.
