The lowdown

After a rent hike that led it to close, Kopitiam returned in early 2018 with in a significantly bigger space and has earned all sorts of praise for its equally enlarged menu. In the morning stop by for chef-owner Kyo Pang’s hearty Malaysian breakfast — like the nasi lemak, a craggy nest of tiny dried anchovies flavored with sambal and peanuts, deposited over a mound of coconut rice, or the kaya toast spread with pandan-tinged coconut jam. Then drop by for dinner and enjoy soul-warming dishes like chilled spicy sesame noodles or a fried-oyster omelette — all under $16.
