If your morning only begins after a cup of coffee, then you should come to Luckin Kopi and taste their robust Hainanese coffee.
Thanks for the wonderful invitation, I recently went to check out the Luckin Kopi, which located quite near (within walking distance) to the Pasar Seni train station. Pronounced as Luck-in, the cafe was named to bring luck and comfort to their customers. Locally-established, Luckin Kopi serves a variety of local Malaysian comfort food with fresh ingredients.
Housed in a 150-year old heritage building that has been excellently transformed to provide a modern-meets-old ‘Kopitiam’ cafe feel, Luckin is set to take patrons and customers on a nostalgic journey back in time, while serving sumptuous comfort food that is sure to delight your taste buds.
The wild flowers decoration on their walls give the cafe a modern touch. Inside Luckin Kopi, you will also find “Oranda”, a breed of goldfish that symbolises good luck and fortune, which is one of the feature elements of the café interior decor.
Taste the difference with their fragrant Hainanese coffee. Brew fresh all day long to bring you the aromatic bonding of both coffee and people, you can order Luckin Cham, Luckin Kopi Kaw, Luckin Kopi-O, Luckin Kopi-C Kaw, or Luckin Kopi Kaw Cincau. It is refillable, you can just ask the waiter when you finish your cup of coffee.
I like the idea of this Luckin Toast (RM12.90), which comes with half boiled eggs, 5 pieces of Hainan toasted breads, and 4 sauces. Who says morning breakfast is too boring to have, I get to enjoy my toasts in 4 delicious ways – kaya, peanut butter, Nutella, butter.
I was attracted by the name of this dish, Geng Chow Chicken Bun (RM12.90), which literally means ‘super great’ in Cantonese. Featuring 2 steamed soft buns filled with chicken fillet and chef’s specialty sauce, this made a perfect choice if you want something light to eat. Next round I would like to try the Petai and Rendang Chicken flavours that look very appetizing as well.
Don’t forget to try their signature Hainanese Chicken Chop (RM16.90) that surely captured the taste buds of Malaysians. If you like chicken chop, Luckin Kopi also serves it in Buttermilk Sauce (RM17.90) and Salted Egg Sauce (RM17.90).
Feel sinful or not looking at this Cheesy Indo Mee and Egg (RM14.90)? Hahaha… don’t care, eat first then diet later 😉 The taste is so irresistible to have the melted cheese and savoury Indo noodles together, you just can’t stop eating it!
Craving for some local bites? You can get the Chee Cheong Fun, Kuih Nyonya, Butter Kaya Crackers, or my favourite Rojak (RM8.90) at Luckin Kopi for some tea time indulgence. Mixed well with a thick layer of special sweet savoury sauce, I can finish this plate of rojak all by myself 😉
Luckin Kopi is fast being recognized as a hidden gem among the many food and beverage outlets at the popular food scene in Petaling Street. They build their business out of the love for traditional kopi and local food culture. At Luckin Kopi, it is more than just a restaurant… it is an experience, a tradition and you should come to discover it yourself.
