Kedai Kopi Kwang Koan

Kedai Kopi Kwang Koan is one of top breakfast spots in Kelapa Gading according to Foursquare, so I was curious to check it. It says this traditional coffee shop is famous for its coffee and bakpao (steamed buns). It turned out that this coffee shop is located in a mini food court, where there are many other vendors selling many different kinds of food. 20140808_073132 copy There were two older men brewing coffee with a younger assistant, maybe one of the elders is called Kwang and the other one is Koan. Just kidding. I don’t know for sure the origin of the name. 20140808_074622 copy I ordered a cup of hot black coffee and chicken steamed bun. 20140808_073511 copy I really liked the steamed bun, the chicken is rich is flavour and there is egg inside. 20140808_073845 copy There are three kinds of steamed buns: chicken, pork and sweetened bean, which can be differentiated by the dot colour on top of the buns. 20140808_073246 copy The customers came continuously, so the two men at the bar never stopped brewing and filling glasses with coffee and condensed milk. 20140808_074639 copyThis coffee shop gave me nostalgic feeling, as it is very similar to the atmosphere at most traditional coffee shops in Pontianak. 20140808_073317 copy I would like to recommend this place to my family, so we have more options to dine out on weekend mornings. Next time I come here, I would like to try Nasi Tim Fang Fang.
