The wonder of you…

There’s a new coffee shop in my neighbourhood…

TWC 1

…and I wonder why there are so many places here by that name. I thought they would not approve that when one tries to register one’s company and there is already one by the same name like the one here, for instance. Maybe the use of the definite article, the, would single it out from the rest, I wouldn’t know.

This one is located round the corner from my house, taking over the place of that bakery with the most yummy cream puffs which seems to have called it a day so I guess I would have to hunt for some new places now where their cream puffs would be good enough to be worth the calories.

This one is not really like the usual coffee shop though – it looks a whole lot nicer…

…and there is air-conditioning just that the unit was not switched on that morning I was there. It did not really matter as it was pretty early in the morning so it was not hot at all.

I ordered the iced coffee, black (RM2.50)…

…and from what the waiter said to me in Mandarin, if I’m not mistaken, it was Nescafe. That was fine by me as I usually would drink that at home – too lazy to brew my own cuppa…and I was glad that it was nicely done – no complaint whatsoever. I remember when I was in Kuching sometime back, I was quite put off by the fact that I was not getting good coffee from the coffee shops in the vicinity so I ordered Nescafe from the Malay coffee shop right next door to the hotel where I was staying, thinking that it would not go wrong…but it did go wrong! Even that was awful! Tsk! Tsk!

I ordered what they call their Singapore prawn noodles (RM7.90)…

…which was quite nice especially with the special fragrance of the fried garlic that they garnished it with and also with the cili padi dip…

However, I would say that I find the Penang prawn noodles here a whole lot nicer…and cheaper too!

Service was excellent and I found the people very friendly but it seems that the things are not necessarily nicer and definitely pricier than elsewhere probably due to the fact that the place appears a bit more atas (classier) than the regular kopitiam (coffee shop).

So, would I be heading back there again? Well, maybe I would, maybe I wouldn’t. Perhaps if I happen to be around the area, I may just drop by again and try some of the other things they have on their menu. Who knows?
