Mention Hailam Kopitiam, you sure think that, nah, it is just another franchised kopitiam. I assure you not; as there is something different in this kopitiam as compared to the others.
Here in Hailam Kopitiam, coffee or tea is a must to kick start with your meal.
Traditional Hailam Roasted Coffee (RM 3.20 for hot; RM 3.60 for cold) was my caffeine fix of the day. It was very aromatic, very ‘kao’ (which is thick) and not too sweet.
Hailam Hazelnut White Coffee (RM 4.40 for hot; RM 5.60 for cold)
Traditional Hailam Milk Tea (RM 3 for hot; RM 3.40 for cold)
Toasted Sliced Bread with Butter & Kaya (Rm 2.50)
Unlike the other outlets which are using the bread supplied from the central kitchen, Bangsar outlet gets the supples from Ah Weng Kor in Imbi Wet Market. Crumbly warm toasts sandwiched with the square cuts of butter and thick kaya spread. Love the mixture of melted butter and smooth kaya. Definitely something great for breakkie or afternoon tea.
Tuna Egg Sandwich (RM 5.20)
Chicken Deluxe Sandwich (RM 7.20)
with generous amount of ingredients sandwiched in between the toasted bread. Yummy.
Hailam Chicken Chop with Original Sauce (Rm 14.20)
Their chicken are hand-picked freshly from the market everyday (not the frozen chicken supplied from the central kitchen); battered and deep fried into golden brown. The batter was light and crispy while the meat was tender and juicy; great to go with the sourish tangy sauce. We actually had extra helpings of sauce to go with the fries too 😛
The Malaysian’s favourite – Nasi Lemak Special with Rendang Ayam (RM 9.60)
Fragrant coconut based rice with a huge drumstick rendang, kick ass sambal, hard-boiled eggs, ikan bilis and cucumber slices.
Hailam Tomyam Fried Rice (RM 8.80)
Spicy, sourish and very well-flavoured fried rice, came with lots of wok hei
Hailam Fried Mee a.k.a Hailam Mee (RM 8.50)
Mixed Fried Mee a.k.a Cantonese Fried Mee a.k.a Yin Yeong (RM 7.80)
This surprised me the most. The rice noodles were very smooth, compatible well with the fragrant and flavourful gravy and the gooey egg yolk gave the extra smoothness to this yin yeong.
Fried Kuey Teow (RM 7.80)
Curry Chicken Mee (RM 8.80)
Curry noodles lover will be wowed by their thick and concentrated curry. However, it was a lil’ too salty to my liking.
