    Breakfast, being the only reason where I would ever heave my huge heavy butt out of bed on a Sunday morning, is one of my favorite meals of the day. Did I just say one of? Yes, my favorite mealS of the days are breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner and the deadliest sin, supper.


    Kam Fat, opens as early as 5 in the morning, is one of the motivations for me to get to work. Just few doors away from Meng Kee Char Siu and Max! Kitchen; Kam Fat is a chaotic little coffee shops offering a great start to your day.

    The stall in front are selling dim sums, chee cheong funs, breads and kuehs for take away as well as dining in. As you walk in, you’ll be greeted by the delicate aroma of curry that quaffed gently through the air. Take a seat, and the lady owner will come to take your order shortly. Choose from the one-page menu featuring curry laksa, assam laksa, soupy noodles, dried tossed noodles and porridge (small – RM 4, large – RM 5). You can actually choose and mix your own concoctions, such as chee chup (intestines) dried tossed noodles, chicken curry laksa, etc.

    Glorious Assam Laksa! The balance of sour, sweet and spicy will pique your tastebuds and leaves you wanting hunger for more. However, if I were to compare Kam Fatt’s Assam Laksa to the famous Penang Assam Laksa, it still lacks of a wow factor that will keep me returning.

    Here comes the creamy rich curry laksa with the usual toppings such as cockles, long beans, shredded chickens and taufupoks. I’ve taken WMW’s suggestion to order an extra plate of fried intestines and dunk it in. On another occasion, I ordered fried crullers from the stall outside; it goes really well with the curry laksa gravy as well. I’m rating this as the most versatile bowl of curry laksa because you can pair it with basically any ingredients.

    Best kept secret unveiled. Kam Fatt is slowly overtaking Imbi Market as the place with the BEST hainanese tea. Aromatic, frothy and tea, the hainanese tea has won my heart over again and again. Sometimes, I would have my second cuppa before I drag myself to work reluctantly.

    When you want something light, try their roti bakar (toast). The roti baker toasted in a mini oven, is all nicely slathered with butter and kaya before they served it to you.  

    Breakfast and coffee, one of the simple pleasures in life.
