Kedai Kopi Baru (GPS: 5.4178, 100.33233) is a coffee shop in George Town, Penang. Formerly known as Kedai Kopi Baru Hari Hari Datang, it has shortened its name. I think I like the old name better. The coffee shop is located at the junction of Kuala Kangsar Road with Chowrasta Road, and is often busy in the morning part of the day, when the morning market is in session.

My visit to Kedai Kopi Baru

28 July, 2018
I visited Kedai Kopi Baru on 28 July, 2018. We were doing a review stay at Urban H Hotel, and decided to wander around that morning looking for breakfast, when we arrived at the market, and decided to give the coffee shop a try.

I walked around the coffee shop looking at what the patrons ordered, and eventually settled on the Wan Than Mee and Prawn Mee. I ordered two plates of the wan than mee and one bowl of the prawn mee. The prawn mee as RM5. At first I thought of ordering the large, which was RM6, but on second thought, since I was only trying it for the first time, settled for the small. Good decision. It was only so so. The pork skin was rubbery. Over all, the prawn mee lacked taste, though I do acknowledge that when i finished it, the taste "grew on me", and that the broth was not too bad.

The wan than mee was also so so only. To me, although it is dark in colour, it lacked saltiness. I think it also lacked aroma, which further contributed to my lack of enthusiasm over it.
