Beg to differ

Went to this cafe with a girlfriend for brunch the other day. It has been a while since I have eaten here.


Located next to NK Food Network, this Kwong Hup Cafe has never been short of crowds. The cafe is noted for some nice choices of food, mainly its Penang fried kuaw tiaw, Sarawak laksa and kuih-muih stall.

Reason that I seldom come here is I am not so fond of any of its food. It is not that the food are not nice but nothing much to shout about. Nothing really addictive or super delicious for me.

People keep saying the fried kuah tiaw, laksa and popiah were good but I beg to differ. Yes, when they were in Bormill Cafe, I find the laksa was yummy but somehow it was not the same when they moved here. Other food are decent and good enough but I would not particular come here for any of its food.

RM3.00 popiah

However, I could do with a nice plate of healthy popiah on any day. Kwong Hup Cafe serves a nice popiah that goes well with its sweet and spicy sauce. The popiah is made on order so freshness is guaranteed.

RM3.50 sambal panggang

Different story for this kuih. My friend bought this panggang to try from the kuih stall. Soft texture but not enough sambal to please me. It was salty though. A disappointment for both of us.

RM3.00 fried kueh tiaw

I ordered this normal plate of fried kueh tiaw. The kueh tiaw was broken to smaller pieces but enough wok hei fragrance with its spicy paste. However I personally prefer the whole kueh tiaw than this broken noodle. Looked messy and unappetizing to me.

By the way, you can have special order such as add clam, prawns etc to your preferred noodles.

RM3.00 fried noodle

My friend had its fried yellow noodle. She requested for the salty flavour but ended up they gave her the sweeter one.

We were there for about 30 minutes but could not stay any longer. Weather was warm but luckily it was windy. Bearable for us but my boy was hot and his cheeks turned rosy under such weather. So after finished our brunch, we headed home to stay away from the sun before it was time to pick up the other schooling kids.

Guess you won't be back for the food there but I think the popiah should taste very nice by the looks of it.

There's one Penang food court in Jurong Point in SG too, selling all sorts of Penang delicacies at food court price. Another one is in Sentosa Island near Universal Studio.

Yummy!!!

I do love a good panggang. Not enough filling is a no-no for me too.
