Actually I have been noticing this restaurant for quite sometime ago. I thought to myself, "that's an interesting name for a restaurant!" (literally "Kedai Kopi Janggut" means "Beard Cafe" in Malay). And yet, it has nothing to do with the beard, really.

This restaurant is located a block behind Klinik Hilltop. There are quite a few restaurants here are known for good food, and I hope I can share with you more in the future :)

Coming back to the Beard Cafe (heh).

As soon as we settled down, a staff carrying with a Tab (an electronic device) to take orders. He literally sat down on one of the chairs from our table, waiting for us to make the orders. Well... that's unexpected :x

Basically there are 3 steps to complete an order: (1) choose a soup base (tom yam, bitter-gourd, or choy sum), (2) choose between meehoon or mee, (3) choose the meat kind (fish slices, fish cake (鱼滑), prawn).

If you know me, how can I miss the chance to try out their tom yam soup? Nowayyy :9

Seeing the colour of the soup might be terrifying, but it is not as spicy as you thought it will be. In fact, the taste reminds me of Kedai Kopi Ah Chee Tom Yam (阿志冬炎), the one who used to be at Sinsuran, but now relocated to Gaya Street.

As for the meat selection, I chose fried fish slices. There are 4 big chunks of fried fish slices in per serving. Quite generous.

As expected, dad ordered with bitter-gourd soup base. They say it is good for health. It actually look and taste way more appetizing than I thought. Not that awful tho. If you had too much acidic foods recently which causes “yeet hay”, you may want to eat a bowl of this to cool it down.

Do I enjoy my brunch today? Picture speaks louder than words.

To our surprise, a friend of dad's who was having meal nearby saw us and paid for our meal today. (Thank God for unexpected blessing!) The total bill for today's brunch is RM21.50. If I have guessed correctly, the 2 bowls of meehoon would cost RM8.50 each and 1 Kopi O would cost RM2.50. That's merely my guessing since we didn't ask the price of the food individually.

Will I revisit this restaurant in near future? Yes, I can't wait!

Will I recommend this restaurant? Yes, speed service and good food. Just a bit pricy, as expected.

Cheers! ^_^
