16th September 2011, it’s Malaysia Day. My two friends were very patriotic ;p they took a day off and went for lunch at a Malaysian restaurant in Rundle Mall.
Then at night, I joined them and they went to another Malaysian restaurant, Kopi Tim, located at 168 Gouger Street. *LOL* The food here isn’t very cheap -.-” chicken rice costs more than AUD10. Of course I won’t go for any food which are available at my workplace, every week see the same food also scare hahaha…
These were what we had:
Left: The interior.
Right: Grass jelly and herbal tea. Forgot the prices. By the way, I heard they don’t serve FOC water like any other places. You must order the bottled water.
Right: Salted Fish Bean Sprout (AUD13.90), stir fried bean sprout with salted fish in tasty sauce. GOSH! Can you believe eating such expensive bean sprout dish?!?! Even in Chinatown, I could get a packet for less than AUD1. Taste? Salted fish and bean sprout as it should taste *LOL*
Left: Sambal Okra (AUD13.90), okra in thick chili sauce. I really can’t help it, the most expensive okra/ladyfinger dish I had in my life! ;p The sambal was quite sweet but it was good.
Roght: The famous Kadazan Chicken (AUD16.90) of Kopitim. It’s deep fried chicken marinated with the chef’s special spices. YUM! I love this! Don’t remember how many pieces of chicken there. If I recall correctly, there should be 6 pieces.
Left: Sambal Squid (AUD16.90), the sambal was the same as the okra’s. I like this too even though it’s quite sweet.
Right: Curry Prawn, no idea how much because it’s not in the menu. Not bad too.
I don’t remember the exact total price but each of us paid about AUD18+ for 7 of us.
Overall, I won’t recommend the vegetable dishes because it’s too expensive. Even the Ã€ la carte dishes too. Not worth it. The prices here are quite steep and portion wasn’t big. Meat and seafood dish are okay I guess…
I don’t think I’ll come back unless I have too much money to spare.
Comments on “Kopi Tim”
We have the curry fish head there once. It’s ok. The second time we wne tthere, the taukeh neu and taukeh son weren’t very friendly and surprisingly slammin the table when we requested one. We never been there since.
Sure expensive to have some Malaysian food there, but once a while, treat yourself to it, okay lah
William, not surprising lol I heard many bad feedbacks from people about the place =D
