KY eats – Malaysian Breakfast at Kedai Kopi Wah Mui, Kota Bahru, Kelantan

On my first visit to Kelantan, we managed to try two meals outside of the “kenduri kahwin” that brought us there, first was the nasi kerabu Liniey, and the second was this quintessential Malaysian breakfast set at Kedai Kopi Wah Mui.

This little old school restaurant is located by the main touristy area of Kota Bahru (if you can call it a touristy area at all), just across the road from Muzium Diraja Istana Baru, or the royal museum of Kelantan, a place Sultan Yahya Petra lived from 1939 to 1960. Worth visiting if you’re into a walk down the memory lane for a bit.

Anyway, back to this kopitiam.

Kedai Kopi Wah Mui is operated by a Chinese owner, but the Kelantanese way is such that everyone is a customer so long as halal food is served, and in this case, it is.

I ordered the simple classic mix of roti kahwin (toast with kaya & butter), half boiled eggs, and kopi ais for some afternoon tea time indulgence. It was simple, and for the lack of a more sophisticated word .. tasty! Love the richness of kaya, how the eggs are executed perfectly, and crispy toast bread.

If you want a simple 1 Malaysian breakfast (or afternoon snack) and a good cup of coffee at Kota Bahru, this won’t be a bad choice.
