The smell of freshly brewed 'Kopi' wafting through the air and the sight of the Peranakan-inspired table set against the traditional heritage brick walls amid the retro ambience confirm that you have stepped into KL's latest Kopitiam joint - Luckin Kopi at Jalan Panggong Petaling Street, the Chinatown in Kuala Lumpur.

This Muslim-friendly and pork-free cafe is a newcomer to the popular food scene in Petaling Street in Chinatown is a hidden gem among the many food and beverages outlets in this part of the town.

Frontage Of Luckin Kopi

Sitting snugly at the corner of the hustle and bustle of Chinatown of KL, in one of the city's happening address along Jalan Panggong, right next to the famous 'Kwai Chai Hong', history-rich lane set to be the latest tourist hotspot.

Housed in a 150-year old heritage building, Luckin Kopi has been lovingly-restored transforming into a modern-meet-old 'Kopitiam' restaurant feel. The interior that carries the charm of a century’s old heritage building is equally impressive and totally nostalgic especially for me and my hubby, Uncle Hong as we spent a great part of our childhood here. 

Luckin Kopi is one such Kopitiam that was refurnished from its original structure of the pre-war building. With the stunning ambience, reliving a significant era through its food and decor, Luckin Kopi aims to bring back a sense of nostalgia and sweet memories with each dining experience at their cafe.

Stepping into Luckin Kopi feels like being transported back to good old days of the 1960s. Dining at this place brings back lots of nice memories for me as I grew up in this part of Chinatown. 

Reminiscing my childhood days where I used to drink Kopi Kaw from a saucer while savouring kaya butter on toast at these coffee shops. 

I still remember the strong scent of roasted coffee beans, the warm aromas of baked bread,  the perfect half-boiled eggs and the characteristic thick-rimmed cups and saucers. Life was so much simpler and carefree then!

I grew up in this part of Chinatown and it was like travelling back in time and finding myself in the bygone days while dining at Luckin Kopi!

Beyond the sights of the quaint cafe, the people behind Luckin Kopi are serious about their food choices that are being offered in the cafe. Diners are spoilt-for-choice from breakfast, lunch to dinner menu with a wide variety of local Malaysian and Western comfort food to delight their taste buds.

I have to say that the food they serve is really good quality. Fresh ingredients are used in all their cooking, from making their own sambal to the spicy rendang paste that is all made from scratch. The dishes are original and unique, completely different from the commercialised or franchise outlets. 

As the saying goes like this "The best recipe comes from our heart" is no lie!
