XiXiang Kaya Kopitiam @ Gurney Paragon, Penang

While many may thought Gurney Paragon is full with Michelin star or renowned franchise restaurants, there is a Kopitiam style restaurant at Level 2 serving simple local delicacies such as toast, coffee and nasi lemak - XiXiang Kaya Kopitiam. Their tagline claims they are serving authentic Nanyang flavours food which we concurred because as far as our geographical knowledge concerned, Nanyang refers to Southeast Asian region.

As Malaysian food cultures matter, a set of bread, a cup of coffee and a half boiled egg is the most typical acceptable breakfast regardless of races. The "kopitiam" here offers various set consists of the mentioned combination with a different choice of bread. We picked set D (RM 10.90), as steamed bread is the best to testify the quality of bread being used.

The steamy soft bread, accompanied with a cup of coffee served with a aluminium cap to preserve the heat is an excellent choice for a light breakfast or tea break. It was a great enjoy to savour such a combination.

Their Nasi Lemak (RM 11.90) had its rice served in triangle shape, which is such a reminiscence as our previous encounters was in Sabah. A small piece of ayam rendang was served, together with a handful of anchovies, few slices of cucumbers and half piece of boiled egg. The rice was lacking of the coconut milk scent, peanuts were missing, and what more the sambal provided could barely cover half portion of the rice. We do feel the dish is not well justified at a price tag of RM11.90.

We were introduced to this Hand-made spicy noodles (RM 11.90). The lacklustre of chicken slices and other ingredients made this noodles a dull ones, leaving the sambal to mask its monotonousness. However, glad that the noodles was something to differentiate it compared to other yellow noodles out there. An above average dish.
