Meals at Hailam Kopitiam

With so many types of kopitiam food outlets in Kuala Lumpur, I was already asking when will one open up at my residential area.

True enough, the Hailam Kopitiam decided to open up in Taman Danau Desa. One of the bosses told me that this is their 16th outlet.

Not bad for a local kopitiam that originated from Kuala Pilah of Negeri Sembilan. Glad for all these locals that came up with such innovative restaurants that are giving a challenge to renowned cafes like Coffee Bean, Starbucks, or Gloria Jeans.

Their set-up are almost the same with other local kopitiam type of restaurants as they sell almost similar food.

In a hailam food outlet, you must try their Hailam Traditional Chicken Rice Special to see whether they deserve the right to use the word hailam in their name.

The Hot Chocolate drink is found in a kopitiam too? A bit westernised I think.

The Hailam Chicken Chop with Rice that comes with black pepper gravy is excellent. The gravy is filled with strong pepper taste and it burns a bit in your lungs as you swallow the meat. I like it this way.

The Hailam Special White Coffee Iced Blended was filling too. Quite like white coffee. Can't drink too much of coffee as it will give me migraine.

Price wise - reasonable for this type of food outlet. After tasting only two of their dishes, can't say much about the rest of it in the menu but those that I have ordered were good.

Maybe it's still new, the outlet is filled during lunch and dinner time during the weekends.

It's great that we finally have a kopitiam in Taman Desa. I hope more will come. There's too many pubs in Tamn Desa but lack of good kopi tiam especially those with nice food stalls.

Great blog,I have try is below average. If you want eat real hainanese food, the only true one i eat is hometown hainan coffee at kota damansara opposite of paparich. I think it is their second branch. Very good food.

Oh yeah I saw this kopitiam & there's one new restaurant "Chelos" (don't know spell correctly or not). I like buying breads & cakes at RT & Cranberry there. Seems like Tmn Desa is becoming an eatery hub!
