Kopitiam

Perfect For: Coffee & A Light Bite Lunch

It's Sunday at 1pm, and you just tried to get into Dimes. And then L'Estudio. There are hour-long waits at both. Someone in your party suggests going to The Fat Radish. Don't do it. Instead, pop into Kopitiam, a tiny Malaysian coffee shop that serves great food. There are only three or four seats, but it's not a place you stay long. If you're looking for lunch, try the chilled sesame noodles or the nasi lemak (coconut rice topped with cucumber, egg, anchovies, and spicy sambal sauce). For a sweet snack, do the kaya butter toast or the white coffee.
