Luan Fong Kopitiam.
Seberang Perai is famed for its sumptuous cuisine. Its kopitiams serve more than food – they unite people from all walks of life.
Before coffee franchises and hipster cafes, there existed the good old kopitiam. And in Seberang Perai, the kopitiam has a character of its own: nestled in old shophouses, furnished with wooden tables and chairs and usually owned and run by the elderly.
While their decor may vary, kopitiams in Penang usually have a similar classic menu listing coffee, tea, milo and the signature toasted bread – or “roti bakar” – with butter and/or kaya, complete with half-boiled eggs and packets of nasi lemak for those who wish to complement their breakfast with something spicy.
