Bungkus Kaw Kaw is a modern kopitiam-style chain restaurant that's famous for its classic food and beverages menu. The name comes from the Malay word “bungkus” (take away) and the Hokkien word “kaw” (thick). Just say “bungkus kaw kaw” and you’ll get an authentic, full-bodied Malaysian drink to go, packed in a plastic bag and secured with a red plastic cord that also serves as a carrier sling.
