1 Stop Cafe @ Jalan Ipoh, KL

Hidden away off the busy Jalan Ipoh, 1 Stop Cafe is located inside at a corner shop lot in Jalan Balam. Situated not too far off from Jalan Ipoh's famous dim sum, I actually do passed by coffee shop numerous time but never walked into it. Of all places, why kopi tiam lah? Afterall, we already have so many Old Towns, Pappa Rich, Old Taste, Hainan Kopitiam, on and on...and I already so sick and tired of such kopi tiam serving overpriced normal food.

Something draws me into this place, the crowds, the homely cosy environment, thinking that maybe this might be different...Hence, I still walked into this kopi tiam without much expectations. Menu came and now I understand what draws the crowd here. I was impressed with the decent pricing and the amount of choices to pick from.

Lala clam meat fried beehoon (RM 7.50) is one of the chef's recommendation. The beehoon has the "wok hei" and the bits of salted fish taste infused into it. It was good except for the over cooked lala.

Pumpkin pie (RM 3) is displayed as a huge banner outside the shop, definitely a must-try even though I don't particularly enjoy the sweetness of pumpkin. This finger food is their signature dish made from special steamed pumpkin filling with a crispy coated bread making it to resemble the actual pumpkin fruit. From someone that doesn't like pumpkin, this is awesome!

Fried kway teow (RM 6.50) is decently tasty as well, it has the sufficient "wok hei" to be considered as a good fried kway teow. Unlike the famous Penang fried kway teow, somehow this tasted differently - it has this homely feels, so can't really compare between them.

Crepe couple (RM 3.50) is a banana and grated coconut wrapped in a soft pandan and egg flavored crepe. Innovative combinations yet affordable.

Trendy tortilla (RM 3.50) is another light snack at an affordable price to munch on. Tortilla skin with a thin layer of omelette inside wrapped around a filling of cheese and chicken ham cooked in char siew sauce.

Pork cheese backed rice (RM 9.80), not the best cheese baked rice I had and they come in 3 different choices, either chicken, pork or fish.

Chicken lobak (RM 3.50) served with chili sauce, it was meaty and tasted pretty decent.

Liquor and seafood loh mee (RM 9.80), the thick gravy was really good with a hint of added liquor and vinegar into it. Unfortunately, there isn't much ingredients in it but the overall taste of this loh mee is good enough to warrant a second visit.

Minced meat with brinjal noodle (RM 6.50), you can hardly go wrong with these combinations, no doubt it tasted really good.

Also, this cafe has an extensive list of natural concoction juices for only RM 4.90 that benefits your health. For example, to reduce your blood pressure, pick Purple Lady - beetroot, starfruit and apple blended together. I believe the owners must have done their thorough research and tasting as the ratio of each fruits seems to be carefully tuned to retain the taste. Some of the concoctions can taste really awful.

"Owner Heng See Soon's grandfather had actually started the business at its current location in 1961. With 10 years of experience as operations manager for a big Malaysian restaurant chain, Heng decided to take over the family business about three years ago. Together with three chefs experienced in different gourmet styles, they revamped the look and also the menu of the shop.

Even with a contemporary decor and new fusion dishes to keep things fresh, 1 Stop Cafe has also successfully maintained that time-honoured aura of a Hainanese coffee shop. “That's why the ‘Stop’ in our name actually stands for ‘same time, old place’,” said Heng, adding that some of his current customers were descendants of customers who frequented the shop during his grandfather’s time.
" excerpt from Tan Karr Wei's article.

They too serve strong hand-roasted coffee sourced from the very same Hainanese supplier since their grandfather's time. A perfect cup of coffee...maybe next visit...

Verdict: Portions were good, pricing was affordable and overall taste was good as well. Definitely worth visiting again!
