But here at HHWT, we always have room for one more especially when it comes to food ? So today, we’ll be shining the spotlight on the charming eatery that is Roti & Kopi House.Making its debut in December 2019, you’ll find Roti & Kopi House nestled in the suburb of Damansara Uptown. The restaurant is located in an office tower, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled for Uptown 5 Tower where you can easily park in the basement carpark. #HHWT Tip: If you can’t find parking in the basement of the tower, then make your way to Starling Mall and park there instead. Step out and walk around the corner until you see the tower up ahead of you. Upon reaching the eatery, you’ll immediately be greeted with an expansive wall adorned with the name of the cafe, colourful plants and an image of a tiger - nicely representing Malaysia’s national animal ? Practically made to be an Insta-worthy spot, make sure you snap a cool picture here before you enter the restaurant (or after your meal)! P.S.

The restaurant occupies two floors - the lower ground that's perfect for kicking it back while enjoying the beautiful interior and the upper floor for those wanting a little more privacy. Either way, you'll still be in for a good time here ? Known for their unique menu that puts a twist on local delights, start off your meal with the Roti Tiger - a special on the menu which is toasted wholemeal bread with cheese. Take the flavours to the next level by ordering it with a mix of various fillings and spreads such as cheese and roasted almond with butter and kaya or the one with chocolate and peanut butter. Also offering other kinds of toast such as rendang beef toast, nasi lemak toast and kam heong chicken toast, you can say goodbye to plain ol' breakfasts. P.S. Skip the local flavours and savour authentic Japanese ramen at this halal-certified eatery in Uptown Damansara instead. Need something a little heavier? Well, then you should give their signature dish a whirl - the Nasi Lemak Harimau. Dig into the wonderful combination of special ayam berempah, otak serai, blue coconut rice along with the usual suspects of roasted peanuts, ikan bilis and cucumber. If you're looking for a complete meal, then opt for their lunch set which is served with a main dish, a drink and fruits ? P.S. Thinking of a cafe-hopping adventure? Start off with this hidden Muslim-friendly cafe in TTDI! Wash down it all down by ordering the Kopi Harimau made with dark roasted Johor Natural Processed Liberica Beans or Kopi Belang which is a blend of the same dark roasted beans and Arabica Beans. You can add sweet notes to your meal too as the menu offers a wide variety of traditional bites. From kuih lapis and kuih talam to kuih koci pulut hitam and onde onde, you'll definitely be able to find something that's going to suit your taste bud.
