Kampong Glam Cafe

Kampong Glam Cafe

Kampong Glam Cafe is not glamorous, notwithstanding the flashy cars we saw parked near it. Located in the middle of the historic enclave of Kampong Glam, it is more like a big sarabat stall where you can get a good kampong style meal and enjoy a teh tarik or a Milo Dinosaur at affordable prices.

It is, however, popular with locals in the know – for lunch, high tea, evening cocktails or to party the night away. It was said to be one of Malaysia’s best kept secrets. Continue reading →
