Kedai Kopi Hiap Hing 协兴茶室 Restaurant

28, Jalan Sri Selayang Taman Sri Selayang 68100 Batu Caves Selangor Malaysia

Hiap Hing Kopitiam was the original coffee shop business which was started in 1930 by grandfather in Penang under a big tree nearby the Jetty to serve the workers and business people who were working the Port. During the Japanese Occupation, the Second World War in Malaysia, the Coffee Shop was relocated to 618-8 Jalan Pasar, Air Hitam, Penang. Then in 1964, my father who was the eldest son in the family, decided to open a new branch and named under Beng Chin Garden Restaurant which situated at 617-H, Jalan Balik Pulau, Air Hitam, Penang. Till today, both of these coffee shops are exits but the operation and management is run by my uncle and cousins. In 1970, my father moved to Capital of Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur to seek his fortune. He decides to venture a new business called “Hainanese Chicken Rice” stall at Jalan Klyne (near Jalan Silang) at the heart of Kuala Lumpur until 1977. In 1977, my father was motivated to open his traditional Coffeeshop at Taman Midah Cheras and Jinjang. In 1994, we have shifted to our premises at Taman Sri Selayang, Batu Caves, Selangor. Our coffee shop, Hiap Hing is famous for its traditional kaya toasted bread with butter, special Hainanese brewed coffee and fragrant brewed teas which patronage by of our regular customers. This business has been in the hand of Lee’s family for more than 80 years under 3 generations.

Hakka mee is also available, and best enjoyed with his “5 treasures beef ball” which comes with tenderloin, tripe, tendon, beef slice and a beef meat ball stuffed with juicy minced beef. You are also given two types of chili: red and green. The difference? The green version is concocted with belacan and spicier too.

Instead of ordering from their preset menu, I usually customize my order to include only the seafood I felt like having. Oyster is a must for me because it’s so hard to get really fresh ones in the city. This time, I went slightly overboard while ordering so the noodle cost me RM27.50. But as you can see, it was loaded with plenty of seafood so it’s worth the price.
