Breakfast at Killiney Kopitiam

Our last visit to Kuala Lumpur led us to new restaurant discoveries even if we only stayed for less than 48 hours. But it was fun nonetheless.

We left the hotel early because we wanted to explore KLCC Park but didn't expect that will be hungry before reaching our destination. Luckily, the restaurants inside KLCC are already open so we got to eat breakfast at Killiney Kopitiam. I would have wanted us to try a more rustic kopitiam but we're really hungry and Killiney was the first thing we saw.


Killiney Kopitiam looks inviting and the interiors reminds me of the old 50's Diner in Baguio City. There were already a few diners inside so its really not that hard to choose this restaurant.


This is a fastfood type so you need to order at the counter and pay for it also.


I ordered the soft-boiled eggs, Kaya toast (no photo), and Hainanese coffee and it was a good breakfast. I didn't really like adding soy sauce to my eggs like what the locals do. But I did enjoy dipping the toast in it. Yum!


My friend had the breakfast set with sausage, beans, eggs, toast, and coffee. It was a very filling meal and costs RM10.


My daughter had the breakfast set with sausage, hash brown, scrambled eggs (you can request how you like your egg/s), toast and coffee.


Overall, we all had a pleasant breakfast at Killiney Kopitiam. I'm curious about the laksa and hoping to taste it when we visit Kuala Lumpur again. According to Google, Killiney hails from Singapore and is one of the oldest kopitiams there and has now more than several branches in Singapore and Malaysia. It is also one of the best kopitiam.

RECIPE: TKG's Pan-Grilled Maya-Maya With Calamansi Butter Sauce

I chanced upon some fresh-looking Maya-Maya being sold near my daughter's school today so I bought some. I don't really have a dish in mind when I bought it. Maybe fried, sinigang ... And upon checking the fridge and pantry (no more olive oil), I decided to marinate the fish in calamansi to remove the fishy taste. I pan-grilled the fish being careful not to burn it. Then I minced some garlic, cooked it in butter, added some salt and poured the sauce on top of the fish. And its ready to eat. And oh, I also steamed some cauliflower as a side-dish. Bon appetit!

RECIPE: TKG's Brownie Balls with Cointreau Infused Cranberries

We may still be quarantined inside our homes but that doesn't mean we have to let go of our love for food. And if there's something positive that happened in our new normal, I'd say that most people (including me) have discovered the simple joys of spending more time in the kitchen. Here's my take on a classic brownie recipe made special with Cointreau.
