A morning in Kluang would not be complete without Kluang RailCoffee. I had specifically scheduled my day to get plenty of morning time to enjoy my Malaysian breakfast at Kluang Railway Station, and so, here I am after almost 2 years.
The first thing that came to my mind when approaching the station in daylight was, wow. What’s that thing at the back.
There was a queue of about half an hour for me to enter Kluang RailCoffee.
Not a view of Kluang Railway Station that I know of since I was a child.
From the main road, it’s as if the Ekspres Rakyat Timuran was flying above the tracks.
The chalkboard menu looks the same, save for the prices on tapes. Guess there had been a price increase. But no matter, I’m here for breakfast regardless of price.
Dining in is very relaxed in Malaysia as compared with Singapore. There are no group limits.
I was nicely seated with a view of the grill.
Roti buns flying out regularly from the grill.
And behold, what I’ve missed for the past 2 years, so much so that I caved in to buy Kluang RailCoffee’s 3-in-1 products.
I’m not sure if absence makes the heart (and mouth) fonder, but my previous complaints about the food and drinks can be thrown away now. This is what I know Kluang RailCoffee is capable of.
Soft yet crispy roti buns, perfectly half-boiled telur kampungs, and a nicely slightly chocolate-y and caffeinated-punched coffee is exactly what made this very expensive and stressful VTL trip all worth it.
There’s a new Wanton Mee on the menu which I tried for fun. It was a bit dry even with the black sauce. Stick to the usual bread and eggs.
There’s also Lontong which looks a little bit pale.
My staple of choice is still definitely the Nasi Lemak.
But not just like that.
I crack a half-boiled egg on it. If you haven’t done it, you must try it. It blends perfectly with the santan rice and sambal.
Overall, a satisfying meal which reminded me of why I miss Malaysia for the past 2 years or so. Now, on to continuing Revenge Travel Semenanjung with trains.
