One cannot be considered a malaysian or visited malaysia (for foreigners) if one has not patronized a Kopitiam (coffeeshop) in Malaysia. Kopitiam is actually a Malaysian Hokkien word, where Kopi is a malay word for coffee and "tiam" is actually "shop" (店 in chinese).
I personally cannot resist their Kopi-C (coffee with skim milk), teh tarik (tea that's "pulled" in mid-air to allow the tea to mix well with the milk and also achieve a frothy texture when served), kaya (egg custard jam) on toast and of coz the famous You Char Kway with kopi (literally translated as "oil fry ghost" which is actually a deep fried elongated dough). Kopitiam has emerged like mushrooms after the rain around all nooks and corners of Malaysia and you'll definitely find a Kopitiam of some sort.

Yau Char Kwai - goes very well with Kopi-O XD
