Nanyang: A Kopi Tiam in High Street

Kopi tiam is a traditional coffeeshop that is popular in Singapore. Aside from breakfast, kopi tiam or kopitams is also a popular place for lunch and snacks because of it serves Singaporean comfort food favorites such as laksa and nasi lemak. Of course, a kopi tiam won't be complete without coffee and kaya toast pairing.

Nanyang opened in Bonifacio High Street to satisfy that craving for authentic Singaporean noms even without a plane ticket.

At Nanyang, coffee or tea is brewed the traditional way. It is quite a sight and experience to see how your coffee (or tea) is prepared. My fave drink is the Yuan Yang or the coffee + tea which you can order hot or cold. Another favorite is the Kopi which has coffee + condensed milk + evaporated milk. 


So here is a breakfast or snack order of toast with kaya butter, kopi and an order of soft boiled eggs. For Singaporeans (and Malaysians), they add some pepper and soy sauce to the egg and mix it before they dip their bread. 


The Fishball Noodle Soup is hubby's favorite. It's good although I am more partial to Nanyang's laksa which has a creamy and spicy broth. Really delicious!


This is the Cheesy Chicken Chop Noodle, a favorite amongst the kids including my daughter. Anything with cheese is a sure hit with kids. 


Hainanese Fried Chicken Rice. If you're a fan of fried chicken, this is so good! A whole plateful of crispy and flavorful fried chicken. Best paired with laksa imho. 


The Homemade Nasi Lemak is definitely a favorite at Nanyang's, not to mention that this is a very popular Singaporean (Malaysian) dish and also known as their National Dish. There's a twist to Nanyang's serving of boiled egg though. This is not the usual boiled egg but fried in batter. The sambal sauce is also quite good that I wish they sell that in bottles. Next to the laksa, this is definitely my favorite. 


Hainanese Chicken Rice is another popular dish in Singapore and is now being served in Nanyang. 


Of course, it is nice to end the meal with coffee or tea. This is Nanyang's to-go cup.

Overall, the dishes they serve at Nanyang will definitely make you crave so I'm betting you'll be excited to schedule your next visit.

Going to Bangkok is not complete if you haven't tried their famous Thai Milk Tea which are sold on the streets for 20 baht. It's not really hard to find a milk tea seller because there always seem to be one nearby.
