Killiney Kopitiam@Killiney Rd

Killiney Menu: Simple traditional menu posted on the wall… Sign of good food awaiting us?

Grass Jelly Cincau: A pretty decent cincau, not too sweet just the way i like it. Nothing to rave about this thou.

Curry Chicken With Toasted French Baguette: Thick, cremy curry gravy with enough oomph to kick start your day. Dipping it with the crunchy french baguette is an absolute treat in the life!
Superb! (Tried this before @Siglap branch and it’s a total let down thou)

Kopi-Peng + toasted bread (kaya + butter): Again, the Killiney Main Branch makes a kick-ass coffee ice. Rich coffee flavour with hints of Nescafe? It was not too sweet as well which suits dogma’s taste buds. The toast were well made, eventhou they were smack with heaps of butter.. Comparing this to Chin Mei Chin’s Kaya at Katong, I would say Killiney@Killiney Rd has a better coffee and crunchy toast. However, Chin Mei Chin’s kaya is still slightly better than Killiney’s for it’s thick creamy pandan flavour.

TuBoLeng ( Mini Octopus)

TuBoLeng aka mini octopus: This is quite a popular local dish in northern Perak/Penang area. Take some fresh mini octopus, boil them and dip them in the spicy peanut sauce and you will have a wonderful dish to go along with beers! Mmmmm, crunchy juicy mini octopus makes me droool.

One place where you can find this dish is at BaganSerai where mommy’s ex-student cook up some mean dish.

Fried Eggplant in Curry Spices: Another of our favorite is the fried eggplant laced with indian curry powder. It might look like a gooey black mess, but wait till you taste the Spicy, Crunchy eggplant slices. The curry spices /Indian curry leaf provides the firepower and i suspect the chef added some sugar to give the eggplant the crunchiness.

SeaFood HorFun: Pretty impressive with thick seafood gravy and fresh seafood “liao”.What make this dish better than most horfun is the thick Wok-hei flavour and crunchy yet sinful home made fried pork lard…mmmmm..

Verdict: Extremely value for money ( We always get free drinks/fruits/desserts due to mommy) northern Malaysian Chinese cuisine that is heavy in taste/flavour. What more could you ask from such lovely small family owned restaurant?

ps: I could not remember the name of the restaurant but it is along the main street of bagan serai.
