Eng Loh Kopitiam

Surprisingly, if you google Penang breakfast or Georgetown breakfast, Eng Loh kopitiam will sure at the top 5 list. However, if you ask Penang lang, I'm sure this kopitiam is not in most of their top 3 favorite place for breakfast. It is not bad, but just not as crazily loved by Penang lang.

Anyway, I have to attend a class in Georgetown few weeks back, and Eng Loh came into my mind since it is quite near with the training venue.

This kopitiam is famous for its coffee and the various Western style of toasts and sandwiches. However, I was not in the mood for something too fancy so I had a set of butter kaya toast. Nice, but when come to toast, Toh Soon is still my favorite.

We ordered a bowl of "gon lou mee" that come with 5 fishballs, a piece of chai koay and a plate of "wan tan mee". Both "gon lou mee" and chai koay are just so so, but the wan tan mee is quite good. I love the homemade-style-char sioh, and the peppery noodle. The wan tan mee stall has many other specialties too but all not available on the day we visit.

If you are bringing tourist, or you'd love to have breakfast at some place with authenticity, you'll find the aging ambience of this kopitiam lovely.

Location: at the junction of Church Street and Lebuh Penang
