Nasi Kandar + Kopitiam at Oldtown Kopitiam Mamak
Finally, a truly Malaysian restaurant in Melbourne. Unfortunately, the taste is still so-so despite a crew of Malaysian-looking staff (including their chef, typical mamak "chef" look). Vegetarians can expect a great understanding of their diets here, without them questioning if you can take chicken or fish or squid etc. Mind you, I have had a restaurant asking me if taugeh (beansprouts) are okay after I said I do not want seafood, poultry and red meat. On the menu here, the only vegetarian dish I can see being offered is a vegetarian laksa. However, the waiter advised that they can also prepare a list of other dishes like mee goreng, maggi mee goreng, fried carrot cake and some selections of nasi kandar. Also availabe for vegetarians are butter toast, you tiau(chinese doughnut), potato balls, ham cheem peng (fried buns) and yam balls. As for drinks (this is a recommendation for non-malaysians), do try the Teh Tarik (pulled-tea), Cham (tea+coffee), Kopi 'O', black coffee, and honey lemon.

Seating - nice deco with the marble tables and chairs. typical kopitiam feel
exactly how you'd expect a Malaysian Kopitiam to be

Vegetarian Curry Laksa
Sorry to say Nasi Lemak House's vegetarian laksa beats this one anytime.
To me, this one lacked spiciness and also the creamy laksa feel.
