Kopitiam flavours from Bentong

The kopitiam is packed with several customers waiting for a table.

My COLLEAGUE who shares my love for bread suggested I check out Thong Kee Cafe, which is famous for its croissants, toast and coffee.

Croissants? Melted butter on toast? No further convincing needed upon hearing those magic words.

Thong Kee Kopitiam has its roots in Bentong where the first eatery opened in 1988. It has since branched out to Klang Valley.

I had initially wanted to visit the one in Sea Park but fearing the crowd during the public holiday stretch, I opted for the Glenmarie branch.

How wrong I was to expect to get a seat, easily.

At 9.30am, the place was packed and there were several customers waiting for a table.

Thankfully, I only waited for less than 10 minutes before finding an available table.

A server came with a tablet to take my order and I picked the ones my friend recommended – roti bakar (Hainan toast) with butter and kaya (RM1.90), croissant with butter and kaya (RM4.90) and doughnut with ham, cheese and egg (RM7.90) and of course, Thong Kee’s famous iced coffee (RM2.50).

I noticed that many patrons had the same idea too as there were orders for toast and croissants on other tables.

Croissant is already a sinful treat so kaya and butter simply adds to the heavenly indulgence.

You can enjoy the doughnut on its own or pair it with ham, egg, or cheese. For someone indecisive, I opted for all three.

I was enticed by the aroma of fried dough when my order arrived. The doughnut itself proved to be a tasty treat and the added ingredients made it a filling meal.

I am glad to have found a new place for breakfast and tea as Glenmarie is not too far from where I live.
