This review of Kafe Kampung Kaw, a breakfast spot in Port Dickson is written by one of our contributors, Nurina. Some parts of the article may have been edited for length and clarity.
Whenever we travel to Port Dickson, we never miss stopping by Kafe Kampung Kaw for breakfast. The container-style cafe is located inside a village called Kampung Baru. It is easy to find the location even without GPS navigation, as it is just beside Kem Tentera Sunggala and there are many signs of their café from the main road up to the parking area. The signs also continue to show the way out of the village, which I find very convenient for visitors especially first-timers.
Open as early as 8 am until 2.30 pm, this cafe is always packed with locals especially during weekends and public holidays. Although it is recommended to go early to beat the crowds, I found out that the waiting time was not that long. During our visit on a weekend last month, we arrived at 10.15 am and the queue was quite long. But to my surprise, we got our seats shortly after, as the service was fast despite the crowds. They have a good systematic ordering process and attentive staff, which is a plus point for me.

I highly recommend their signature kambing bakar (BBQ lamb) and roti gemok. The kambing bakar was tender, juicy and flavourful. You can order the kambing bakar by itself, which comes with black pepper sauce and a side salad or pair it with nasi lemak or nasi goreng. Since we haven't had our breakfast, we paired it with the fragrant nasi lemak which goes very well with the kambing bakar!

The roti gemok or known as roti puri is a deep-fried bread that is normally eaten with savoury accompaniments. You can choose to have it with chilli sambal, lamb curry or sardine sambal. My favourite would be the spicy sambal! It is so good when you have it while it is still hot!

Don’t worry if you are not a fan of lamb. There are plenty of other dishes on the menu that you can try like roti telur goyang, nasi goreng, mihun sup and soto.
The price range is between RM3 to RM15, which I find very reasonable considering the food portion and its great location, situated in the tourist area. I can't recommend it enough for you to come here whenever you are travelling to Port Dickson as this café ticks off all the boxes of what a good eatery should have. The food is consistent every time we're here! If you're from KL, you can also come just for breakfast as it the journey is only 1h 15min journey.
