Javanese Spaghetti in Old Town Kopitiam

She had this for lunch, minus the chilli

we shared this


Me: Am I weird?
Her: No, why?
Me: Cuz I'm snapping picture of this food
Her: I don't think so.
Me: Do you think it's alright to blog bout the food here?
Her: Why not? Go ahead, food also maaa...
Me: But normally people blog bout fine dining or hawker food wor..
Her: Yeah and ?
Me: and this is just another franchised food chain, isn't it common?
Her: Oh, yup. But still food! -_____-
Me: Ok ok!

As you can see in the pictures above, the franchised food chain where I 'indulged' my blissful lunch was Old Town Kopitiam. Just like any other kopitiam, the food served are standardized and the menu is the same I think in every franchise. I ordered 'nissin noodles with ham and egg' but the waiter said, it's no longer available. I took a quick glance at the menu, and ordered, 'Javanese Noodles'.


Do you know that Old Town Kopitiam is now serving Italian food? No? Well, the 'Javanese Noodles' tasted and smelt like spaghetti to me. Maybe it's just me, but I'm serious! I thought they substituted the good ol' javanese gravy with some pre-made pasta sauce.

Well, maybe not just me, cause I asked her if my noodles smelt like pasta to her, and I believe she said yes. So, tell me if the 'Javanese Noodles' tasted alright when you ate them in Old Town Kopitiam, or something got really wrong in the kitchen when my food was being prepared?
