If you have ever been to Malaysia, it’s unlikely that you have never tried Oldtown White Coffee. The coffee is popular among the local Malaysian with the setup of Oldtown White Coffee Cafe with over 200 outlets all over the country and overseas including two new outlets in Myanmar — on Yaw Min Gyi street and at Junction City.
My guest and I visited the Junction City branch one fine afternoon. Divided into two zones–indoor and outside, the indoor zone is decorated in colonial style building tea shop, commonly found in Malaysia with cream color wall painting. Walking inside, the atmosphere is relaxing with white marbled round tables and black and cream premium chairs. The outside area is more open and spacious with long sofa, perfect for group of friends and family.
The cafe offers two separate set menu which are breakfast till 11 a.m. and lunch and dinner menu. The breakfast menu focuses more on traditional Malaysian breakfast such as peanut butter or kaya toast served with soft boiled eggs, Nasi Lemak, spicy sardine paratha with a few western options available.
Lunch and dinner sees more variety of cuisine; ranging from traditional Malaysian to fusion and western platters.
We opted for Nasi Lemak with Tumeric Fried Chicken (5,900 ks) which is one of the signatures for the cafe. The portion is generous. The chicken is well-marinated and juicy but not too oily. Though it shows as a spicy dish, the paste is surprisingly not too spicy for local taste.
We ended our meal with Oldtown White Coffee hot (2,600 ks) and cold (2,900 ks). The coffee is freshly prepared (not from a sachet), giving distinguish smell and taste for the hot one which can hardly be found here. If you’re not a fan of sugar, do not hesitate to tell them.
Apart from the coffee, juices, smoothies, and float drinks are up for options.
We recommend this restaurant if you are looking for high quality and good taste Malaysian dishes or unique coffee taste.
