The meal at Desa Kopitiam for 2 pax from the Groupon promotion was for ‘Authentic local set meal with watermelon + ABC for RM15 instead of RM27 , the promo include :
Since an earlier incident where I lost track of the expiry dates of one of the Groupon vouchers and suffered a loss of RM20 ( and the missed opportunity of a meal that might change my life), I have created a folder for my vouchers and hope that there will not be anymore of such wasteful incidents ! Rugi la…
Getting a parking space at Danau Desa can be chaotic, I don’t see that many people around but the parking lots were always full. I wonder where all these cars were from ? Anyway, we were lucky today and managed to find a parking space reasonably easy, must be a spillover of good karma from Wesak day yesterday ka ?
The ambience at Desa Kopitiam was cozy, with wooden furniture. The seating areas at the inner part of the cafe was airconditioned while the outer section at the five foot way were equipped with ceiling fans
After showing our voucher to the waiter, we were provided with the menu and told of the five choices for the main course : fish head noodles, chicken noodle soup, curry laksa, kampong fried rice or fish paste noodles, – we decided to go for the fish head noodles and curry laksa.
The fish head noodles- the soup was rich and on the verge of being creamy –this was rather enjoyable, the soup was not overly sourish which is the version that i prefer lah. There were 3 large pieces of fish but not that much of meat and I find the pieces a bit over-fried making the meat a bit tough.
Curry laksa- the soup had that fresh and spice taste that clears up your head and your nostrils ( in a good way). The chicken was just rightly cooked- the meat was smooth and tender. There were generous amounts of fish paste slices and bean sprouts in the soup. There were also long beans in the laksa, missing was the cockels ( see-ham)..Ohh Seehum…where art thou lerrr ?
The ABC ( ice kacang) looked fabulous and taste pretty good too, only complain is that it was a bit too sweet probably due to the large amount of gula melaka in the shaved iced. Apart from the usual ABC ingredients like- cincau, jelly ( I usually do not consume those colourful cubes of jellies that appears in ABC but I liked the firm texture of the jelly served at Desa Kopitiam), red beans, corn, cendol and peanuts- there were canned lychees in the ABC, which added a nice twist of flavour to this dessert
Service was commendable, the staff were quick to attend to the diners needs and were clearing the debris on the tables promptly and efficiently
Overall, an enjoyable meal.Location : the kopitiam is at a corner lot , and is by the roadside. No. 5-0-12, Jalan 3/109F, Taman Danau Desa
