KOPITIAM MALAYSIAN STREET FOOD RESTAURANT [53 CAPEL STREET DUBLIN]-126314
This has yet to open for business but I hope to give it a try as soon as the doors are opened to the public.
Up until a few years ago this street was dominated by Furniture Outlets and Tool Shops and a few Polish Grocery shop but more recently the furniture shops are being replaced by restaurants.
A kopitiam or kopi tiam is a traditional coffee shop found in Southeast Asia, patronised for meals and beverages. The word kopi is a Malay/Hokkien term for coffee and tiam is the Hokkien/Hakka term for shop.
Menus typically feature simple offerings: a variety of foods based on egg, toast, and kaya, plus coffee, tea, and Milo, a malted chocolate drink which is extremely popular in Southeast Asia, particularly Malaysia and Singapore and Brunei and in some parts of Indonesia, especially at Sumatra Island.
