We had arrived at the airport early, and after browsing all the eateries at the departure hall, we decided to try out Pinang Kopitiam. We ordered a Penang Laksa (RM10+ 6%GST) and Rojak Buah (RM6+).
Had some difficulty trying to communicate with the staff as he kept explaining things in Malay, and we had to catch several key phrases and clarify in English. But he sure was very friendly and helpful! When he served the laksa, he asked if we wanted something, but we could not understand. Then he went “Penang flavour. Don’t know? Nevermind, I show you”, and he came back with the prawn paste, which was the saviour of the dish! Ooohhh wooo! The noodles might have been a bit overcooked, but the prawn paste made the gravy very flavourful, and we thought it was better than the other version that we tried.
They were very generous with the prawn paste for the rojak as well, and I particularly enjoyed the tart green mango mixed with the sweet sauce.
This was such a pleasant find at the airport 🙂
Of course, we have always heard how KFC in Malaysia is so much better than that in Singapore, so we simply popped opposite and ordered a 2-Piece Chicken of original flavoured chicken (RM9.20 nett). The meat was succulent and juicy. But we can’t really tell if it’s truly better than Singapore’s because we have not had KFC in Singapore for such a looong time… Haha… 😛
