Ulu Tiram Old Upstairs Wei Sheng Yuan Coffee Shop 衛生園茶餐室 JK1361

Ulu-Tiram-Old-Upstairs-Coffee-Shop-衛生園茶餐室

Here is an old school Hainanese kopitiam which is well known to Ulu Tiram folks but still hidden under the radar from most people outside. I am fortunate that my Johor kakis John and Foo shared 衛生園茶餐室 kopitiam with me :-D

衛生園茶餐室 doesn't have a signboard nor an English name. The Chinese name translates roughly as "Hygiene Garden Cafe".

衛生園茶餐室 doesn't need a signboard as everyone in Ulu Tiram knows this kopitiam - the Tan family matriarch who is now 88 years old started working here since she was 15 (73 years ago).

衛生園茶餐室 is along Jalan Hang Tuah, above Pao Jin Enterprise. The most prominent signboard here is Hap Heng 916 Gold (beside Pao Jin Enterprise).

If you need directions to 衛生園茶餐室, just ask any passer by :-D

The coffee shop is on the second floor, up this flight of stairs.

Inside 衛生園茶餐室, it is bright, clean and airy. There was a constant stream of people, many families having their breakfast here.

Two of us tried as many things as our stomach can take :-D All were nice and a few items were outstanding.

Of course, I must have my good morning Nanyang kopi.

Kaya and butter toast.

衛生園茶餐室 uses traditional old school white bread loaves and toast them over charcoal fire.

This toast with fried egg and house made sambal chili was great. We couldn't resist repeating our order for another set of this.

I like the eggy flavour from the fried egg with runny yolk, balanced with mildly savoury sweet spicy sambal chili. The light crispy toast added interesting texture to the whole sambal egg toast.

Must try.

->> When you are on your way up north to Kota Tinggi, Mersing, Desaru or Sungai Rengit, 衛生園茶餐室 is a very good old school breakfast pit stop which only locals know about.

Thank you John and Foo for sharing this little secret :-D

I firmly believe that taste is subjective and so, warmly welcome differing viewpoints :-D But, I disapprove negative comments that are anonymous or hide behind fake identities. I feel that that is the same as speaking ill of others behind their backs. I look forward to all your comments :-D Thank you. (Date: 18 Dec 2015)
