Malaysia Kopitiam

Hello there ladies and gentlemen. Welcome to my Felicity Corner. I am about to show you the restaurant that sells the best Malaysian food in downtown Washington D. C. The name of the restaurant is called 'Malaysia Kopitiam'. I can assure you that the journey will be a delightful one. So, do fasten your seat belt, and may you have a wonderful gourmet trip. Thank you.

Welcome to Malaysia Kopitiam. Selamat Datang (Malay, meaning welcome). 欢迎光临。(Chinese, means welcome as well.)

The front page of the menu.

This is an award-winning Malaysian food restaurant in Downtown D.C. It is very well-known among Malaysians who reside in Virginia as the price of the food is inexpensive, at least cheaper than another Malaysian food restaurant (which is located only a few shops away) that is known as Penang. An insider tips: stay away from Penang, go to Kopitiam instead.

The restaurant is operated by a Malaysian couple, if I am not mistaken. A detailed review about the restaurant posted in 'The Washington Times' does say something.

Since there were only two of us, we could not order more than two main entrees. We rationalized that there was no point ordering extra and had them take-out as the food would not taste as good later on. We had our mind settled on Yong Tau Foo and Char Keoy Teow.

Char Keoy Teow ($8.95). I thought it was expensive, but the serving appeared to be pretty huge. So, no complain. It was indeed quite oily, but hey, this is the true colour of our national dish - Char Keoy Teow, no? ^_^

I took some out and put on my plate. This is a closer shot.

Ampang Yong Tau Foo in curry broth ($8.95). (Of course, there is nothing too 'Ampang' about that.) Honestly speaking, I can make a better filling for the stuffed veges. But the curry broth tasted great! At least it is something I don't know how to cook from my own kitchen. We had this dish with rice. It was homey.

We thought this was unusual. Ha. Hey, Malaysians don't do this, do we? =P

Yeah, this is the end of the trip. I hope it was an enjoyable one.

See you next time.

Wow!! In Malaysia you don't need even RM 8.00 for a plate of char koay teow, but as I said, that's in Malaysia.

The brocolli in the yong tau foo looks new but cute! Nice pictures taken.

Hope you enjoy your food!

That yong tau foo in the curry sauce looks new! I don't recall eating it here in Msia at all! Erm..then again maybe I haven't been going to the right places! Hehe...but yes the broccoli looks very interesting!

Isn't it nice how Msian food can be found almost everywhere in the world now? Takes away a little of that homesickness sometimes. :)
