Kopitiam Group is a leading name in the local food service management industry. Kopitiam outlets are reputed for providing a comfortable, modern dining experience along with the authentic taste of local and international fare - all at competitive prices. The term “kopitiam” literally translates to “coffee shop” in the local Chinese dialect, Hokkien. At Kopitiam, one can experience and enjoy Singapore's cuisine, a delightful fusion of flavours and a typical “kopitiam”, with its extensive variety of food stalls. In addition, our Group pioneered the popular 24-hour food shop concept in 1988, setting off a culinary trend that has now become a norm in our city landscape.
Looking for a place to have Singapore style coffee or tea in Raffles City. Well try the Kopitiam in the basement. Kopitiam is the Singapore euphemism for Coffee Shop. There was a queue waiting so usually a good sign. I was with old primary school friend and we were looking for a place to have chat.
Since it was late afternoon we decided to forego the caffeine hit and had barley water. This was barley boiled in water with sugar added. It is supposed to be a cooling drink. Add ice and it is lovely on a hot humid day in Singapore. The restaurant also serves local favourites like Bak Kut Teh or pork ribs in a herb soup. Char kway teow, fried carrot cake, nasi lemak and rojak is also available.
