JB Eat: Pacific Kopi (民洋茶室) @ Tan Hiok Nee

Pacific Kopi (民洋茶室) is a new setup in the vicinity of Tan Hiok Nee Heritage Walk, an area that is populated by restaurants and cafes. Pacific Kopi serves traditional coffee and toasts and Malaysian local delights.

Pacific Kopi has few tables on the open-air ground floor, as well as some alfresco seats outside the restaurant.

One of the signature dishes of Pacific Kopi is their fried rice cakes, which are available as "original" or "3-in-1". Other dishes include nasi lemak, biryani rice, curry laksa and various noodle dishes, and traditional toasts. When spoilt for choice, flip to the "Top 10" pages and pick from the list.

The Pacific 3-in-1 fried rice cake (民洋招牌三合一炸年糕) has 4 pieces of rice cakes sandwiched between thick slices of sweet potato and yam. The nicely-fried, non-oily snack is crispy and the homemade rice cake is not over-fried till too soft and not too sweet. This is really a must try. There is a new variant using purple sweet potato in place of (orange) sweet potato.

A traditional breakfast set with hot hor ga sai (kopi-o with chocolate powder), two soft-boiled eggs, butter & kaya toasts and fried rice cakes is my way to try as many of Pacific Kopi's dishes as possible. The soft-boiled eggs are perfectly done till the state where there are no raw albumen and their toasts has great buttery taste.

The Pacific Mushroom Chicken Mala Pan Mee (dry) is a tasty dish. The homemade pan mee is added with minced chicken and mushroom sauce, poached egg, fried anchovies, kailan, fishballs and mala sauce. The mala sauce is aromatic, not very spicy and greatly enhanced the flavours of the noodle dish. The poached egg smoothens the whole dish and gel the ingredients to the pan mee. Tasty and delicious.

Will I be able to resist the temptation of the mala pan mee on my next visit and try other dishes?
