Nanyang a taste of Authentic Singaporean Delights

The typical breakfast scenario – the combination of a cup of Kopi and a freshly toasted bread – with a modern twist. 

“Kopi” means “coffee” and “Tiam” means “shop”. Combining these two words, “kopi tiam” means “coffee shop” which is deeply rooted in the origins of Southeast Asia. It became popular through serving a variety of simple food offerings such as coffee, tea, kaya, toast, and many more.

I seldom pass by 2 of Nanyang's I believed most dine-in branches which in SM Aura Premier and Bonifacio High Street and the thing that catches my attention most from their billboard of the menu outside the restaurant is the Coffee Jelly and Laksa. Because after tasting Laksa from other restaurants it became one of my favorite Singaporean meal.

Kopi Jelly Milk Tea
Kopi Jelly Milk Tea is a perfect mixture of coffee and milk tea specially made for milk tea lovers. The strong coffee and milk tea complement each other just as if not more than those sprouting milk tea shops in the metro.

Kopi Jelly Milk Tea - Php 130.00

The showstopper that made me felt I want some more even though I'm full already is their Laksa, cooked in a spicy with creamy from rich an aromatic coconut-based broth, with shrimp, half-boiled egg and some fish cake with their own me tai bak (rice noodle). Once I get to taste the soup I can't stop slurping up the steaming bowl of the Laksa, a favorite amongst Singaporeans now includes me. Best eaten once it is served hot and smell the variety of spices, it is simply irresistible. No doubt its authenticity because the soup itself had the best spiciness and taste of a real laksa.
