After yoga with surges of strong and powerful emotions, like waves of emo sadness washing over me (“send your blessings to the trees, the leaves, the animals…”), Hookerlily and I were starving. She said, “You forgot my line of work?! I know where to eat during late night.”
KPT Kopitiam is a very funny name. It’s like KPT². Well, you know KPT lah, don’t need to describe the ambience right?
Hookerlily had a chicken cutlet, which to you expats, means a flat piece of deep-fried chicken. Her cutlet was huge, covering most of the plate. Made up of mostly skin, with just a thin layer of meat. Sinfully delightful.
I had chicken chop, which is grilled chicken. I was so exaggeratedly ecstatic that Hookerlily thought I was being ironic. The bun was superb, it was deep-fried and then coated with a layer of butter. The bun soaked up the oil, which made it so, so delicious. The coleslaw alone can get you a heart attack, the dressing was sooo creamy and rich. The hot chicken chop itself was admirably done, tender and savory.
This shop is value-for-money and very delicious. It opens till late night.
