My father is a regular customer to this Kedai Kopi Matahari. The server will automatically brings him a cup of warm water without him ordering it.
The traditional coffee shop usually occupies a corner lot. The coffee shop owner will sell drinks while there will be several food stalls operating on the outside perimeter of the coffee shop selling street food.
My father had a bowl of “Mee Suah”. It was quite plain without much meat in it, just a little of pork. This is RM6 (about CAD1.80).
I had a bowl of pork yee mee with an extra egg. This is $1 extra i.e RM7 (about CAD2.15).
I bought some fruit from a fruit hawker operating from a van. A piece of jicama and a piece of pineapple is RM2.60 (about CAD0.80). I added some chili prawn paste sauce which is quite nice.
For dinner, my father and I went to a Nasi Kandar place. It is similar to the Chinese “jap fan” stall but this caters to Malay/Indian customers.
We shared a few dishes. Fish head curry with lady fingers.
Achar (pickled vegetables).
More lady fingers.
A deep fried chicken drumstick.
The bill came to RM21.20 including GST. This is about CAD6.50.
