If you're in Petaling Jaya, Selangor, you should stop by this recently opened kopitiam in PJ Oldtown, Tingkap Cafe! This eatery serves an array of affordable and delicious Malay fare while giving the place a sense of nostalgia with the vintage interior.

As soon as you step in, you will be taken back to the 1970s and 1980s as the interior is built to evoke nostalgia with actual tingkaps (windows) plastered all over the wall. There are even antique household items on display such as a sewing machine and an abacus calculator, to give the cafe a more vintage feel ?

For those who never get tired of eating traditional Malay food, you’ll be glad to know that you can find a variety of it here, ranging from Roti Jala with Curry, Nasi Dagang, and even Nasi Kerabu ? Better yet, all these delicious Malay cuisines are freshly brought in from Kelantan every morning. The best part is that it’s super affordable with menu options starting from RM3.50!

This eatery also serves breakfast menu options such as Roti Goyang (Buttered toast topped with soft or half-boiled eggs) and Telur Separuh Masak (half-boiled egg). Don’t forget to complete your breakfast meal with a cup of Teh Panas (hot tea) or Iced Milo!

Additionally, they even sell traditional Malay kuih such as Kuih Lapis, Lepat Pisang, and Pulut Hitam. But, you may want to get there early in the morning as by lunch time, you might not even find a single packet left as they’re gone at the speed of light!
