Inevitably, coffee has become an important part that cannot be separated from my life and maybe other millennials. A dose of caffeine in the morning has become a necessity, my day wouldn’t be complete without a cup of hot cappuccino or espresso.
I’m not sure when drinking coffee and hanging out in the coffee shop become a tradition for young urbanites. But long before the trendy coffee shops sprang up in the city, we have known warung kopi and kopi tiam.
Basically, both warung kopi and kopi tiam are a traditional coffee shop, but the term of kopi tiam usually referred to Malaysian Chinese coffee shops. The menu usually consists of typical breakfast food and drink such as kaya toast, soft boiled egg, nasi lemak and coffee.
Traditional kopi tiams are commonly found in a residential area or business district and run by the owner. But these days a new breed of kopi tiams has sprung up.

Established in Ipoh, Malaysia OldTown White coffee serve a variety of Malaysian delicacies such as kaya toast, nasi lemak, noodle dishes, and famous Ipoh white coffee.
