We’re back after a long absence. As always, if we’re in the neighbourhood it means there’s something wrong with our computer. Our spare CPU keeps resetting its date to somewhere in 2008 (we were told a simple change of the CMOS battery should do the trick) while Brendan’s CPU’s video and sound card drivers have mysteriously disappeared.

It took only about 10 minutes to fix these (big thanks to Shawn and Carmen, if you ever need an expert look your computer over just give him a call at +60391073084) and we headed over to KK Kopitiam nearby.

we're back!
our kind of restaurant

our favourite stall


Cat and I both ordered the brilliant 1Nasi Goreng Pattaya while Cat thought she’d try the 2Som Tam.

1fried rice wrapped in an omelette, similar to Omurice, a contemporary Japanese cuisine consisting of an omelette made with fried rice and usually topped with ketchup
2green papaya salad is a spicy salad made from shredded unripe papaya which combines the five main tastes of the local cuisine: sour lime, hot chili, salty, savoury fish sauce, and sweetness added by palm sugar


the choice of a new generation?
fiery siamese dish
Cat could not wait
so let's dig in


As always we are never disappointed, and on this occasion the Nasi Goreng Pattaya was excellent. The Som Tam was equally good, but being from the East Coast we felt that it lacked the sweetness. This being said, if you’re ever looking for a dish to turn you into a fire-breathing dragon then this dish highly recommended. And the damage? With Brendan being away the total came to only RM22.80, well within the realms of the everyday food for the everyday person.
