Chop Tong Sing, Kedai Kopi & Makanan

Kedai Kopi Tong Sing is an old school kopitiam (coffee shop) that we have been frequenting for ages. Situated along Jalan Mendaling in a rather quiet part of the old town in a pretty run-down shoplot, it is the only surviving authentic kopitiam in Kajang town.

There used to be two kopitiams along Jalan Sulaiman and one on Jalan Besar, but they have long disappeared. Tong Sing managed to survive due in part to the popularity of a stall within the shop which serves a pretty good curry noodles and a decent pork porridge. Very popular on weekends and public holidays, it also has it's faithful daily regulars.

The coffee comes thick and is served in old kopitiam cups.

The roti bakar pairs a sweet kaya with thick slices of butter.

Half-boiled eggs are a energy boost in the morning! They use free range chicken eggs here.

The yam cake was so-so only.

The curry noodles were thick and not very spicy – you have to add your own sambal chilli for added heat. I usually add two spoonfuls. Slices of chicken and fried pork with some crunchy bean-sprouts make this a great meal.

Location : Along Jalan Mendaling, Kajang Town

  1. Commonly known as June's Shop. Here is where that once famous curry laksa originated from, then went out on their own, moved to Bukit Mewah and finally 'called it a day' about 2 years ago.

    Curry laksa in Mendaling Street is somehow good! Don't ask me why, it has always been good here. A few doors away, the ex-Kajang High School canteen operator, Hailam family runs a coffee shop which serves decent laksa and killer Penang Prawn Mee. That will be a different blog, for another day.

    Maybe time stood still in Mendaling Street?
