KL Kopitiam Malaysian Cuisine, Haymarket (19 Oct 2008)

Dixon House Food Court
Shop B9, 80 Dixon Street, Haymarket NSW 2000

It's been many years since I've stepped downstairs to Dixon House Food Court and it's still a crazy busy place to find seating at peak-hour lunchtime. I didn't expect much from a food court shop so I thought for the price you pay this place served up some decent dishes.

Famous IPOH Bean Sprout Chicken with Rice $7.50. Chicken was moist and the chilli and ginger sauce was fresh and tasty. One of the better ones I've tried around the city and hope to try again.

Other places tried for Chicken Rice:
Singapore Shiok!* - 29 Sept 2010
Malacca Straits - 23 Jan 2010
Yummy Chinese - 20 Jan 2010
Laksa House - 24 Sept 2009
Laksa King - 16 Sept 2009
Malaysian Food House - 18 Aug 2009
Malay-Chinese Takeaway - 6 Aug 2009
Mc Lucksa - 5 Aug 2009
Jaya Malaysian - 29 July 2009

Chicken Laksa $6.80. Nice depth of flavours but preference is still Malay Chinese laksa chicken pieces and spongy tofu.

Har Mee $7.50. Generous sized prawns although my preference is Malay Chinese with stronger broth taste I think. I hope to try again though.

Other places tried for Har Mee:
25 Jan 2012 - More More Char
6 Oct 2010 - Singapore Shiok!*
24 Sept 2009 - Laksa House
16 Sept 2009 - Laksa King
12 Aug 2009 - Jaya Malaysian
23 April 2009 - Lee's Malaysian
24 March 2009 - Malay-Chinese
19 Oct 2008 - KL Kopitiam Malaysian Cuisine

Char Kway Teow $7.50. My preference is still Alice's in Thornleigh. I'm more used to having flat rice noodles and a darker soy appearance with a more smokey wok burnt taste.

Other places tried for Char Kway Teow:
25 Jan 2012 - More More Cha (includes clams)
2 June 2010 - Wong Kee Fast Food

I noticed this the other day, and whilst it was exciting to see another kopitiam, I was disappointed the Thai place before it had closed! Har mee doesn't look as tasty as Malay Chinese but I might have to sample it just in case :)

What a drool worthy post! I now have a hankering for some noodle soup. A pity as I have fish and salad ready for dinner right now lol

I just stumbled upon your blog randomly and I find it very interesting. I see you've tried most of the chicken rice in Sydney city. Have you tried the chicken rice in Kopitiam, Harris St? It's only available on Sunday and it's actually pretty good.

hi helen, i've yet to find a better Har Mee than Malay-Chinese.

hi lorraine, noodle soup will be good for the cooler weather coming up now.

hi jenna, thanks for stumbling across my blog. i have tried Kopitiam on Harris St for chicken rice, on Sunday. I remember it was pretty good and I tried it before I started food blogging so don't have any photos of it. hope to revisit again and add to my list. thanks for reminding me about it.
