Enjoying an old-school breakfast in Taman Berkeley

A simple breakfast makes for a great start to the day.

While many restaurants boast of a certain unique selling point that draws customers with their fancy dishes, interior decor, or exciting new tastes, there also exists those that seemingly operate in exactly the same way as they did the day it was established, staying on as a sort of time capsule.

Thye Huat at Berkeley, opens from Mon-Sat
Thye Huat Kopitiam is open from Monday to Saturday.

In the era of quirky Instagram-worthy cafes and fad-based food, this is an increasingly rare sight. One such place is Thye Huat Kopitiam in Taman Berkeley.

yam cake anyone?
Yam cake anyone?

Located at Lorong Lang, just a few minutes from the old Sungai Rasau toll, this kopitiam certainly fits the bill.

Its floor was laid with mosaic decades ago, and it consists of a single stall offering different simple dishes on different days of the week, and even some nyonya kuih to boot.

In addition to curry mee, mee siam, laksa, prawn mee, curry puffs and so forth, the half-boiled eggs and coffee here is also not to be missed.

Expertly crafted by the old operator, the coffee carries an aroma and body that’s as good as some you enjoy at modern cafes.

The half-boiled eggs are cracked open for you and come to the table in little old china cups.
