Recently, a few of my followers send me msg in Insta to check this place out. After I google about this place, it turns out to be a famous Hainanese Kopitiam that had been operating for more than 60 years at Lorong Pangung. Ho Kow Hainanese Kopitiam at Petaling Street had just moved to their new location that is currently creating more modern classic touch of their interior. Drawing massive crowds from both local and international tourist.

It is a crazy hype at the  moment and do prepare to queue for a minimum 30 minutes. At their peak could be 60-90 minutes. Was told that the queue even started as early as before 7AM on weekend where all are ready to dig into their famous Hainanese Cham drink with soft boiled egg, kaya butter toast.

Their signature drink is Cham Peng @ RM 3.50 (L) is indeed a drink that you must not miss. Punch with flavour and a well balance of tea and coffee. For their Teh Ice at RM 3.50(L) is just normal. I would prefer to order 2 glass of cham instead.

Ho Kow (7)

seen alot table ordering this, hence we follow suit.

Ho Kow (8)

Their nasi lemak picture in the menu looks good, hence we decided to give it  a try. Turns out to be as good as it looks. Chicken fried to perfection, crispy skin and chicken meat is soft. Their Sambal is is salty, mild spice and with a a little hint of sweetness.

Ho Kow (9)

Nothing much to shout out abit this as a croissant comes with meat floss, egg, ham.

Ho Kow (10)

Curry Chee choong fun is abit of Ipoh style.

Ho Kow (11)

Their dry curry chicken noodle is one of the famous item too. Do give it a try. Mild flavor curries served with soft chicken meat and their noodle texture is pretty good. Not the usual type of noodle that you can find in kopitiam.

End with this classic Kaya Butter toast. A simple toast that you should not miss with a glass of Cham and half boil egg.

Do note that there are dispute within both stalls. Do ask do they serve it to the place where you are seated. If you are seated on another side zone of the other stall, you wont get your noodle as I was keen to try both. So I could not try both at the same time.
