Food and drink
The name basically means coffee shop in Malay, where the owner comes from, but it’s far more than that in its cute Majorcan incarnation. Although most of the dishes are home-style Malaysian, there are a few Chinese and Thai crossovers and I like to choose several plates for snacking and sharing such as the vegetarian dahl parapu (a delicate lentil and coconut curry), tofu and lotus root stir-fried in oyster sauce and Nonya vegetable pickles. If this doesn’t restore jaded taste buds, I struggle to think what will.
I love the typically Asian café feel here, but the dining room does seem rather stark compared to the wonderfully rich and colourful cuisine. If I can, I opt to sit outside.
The staff are super friendly and enthusiastic, making you feel right at home.
Kopitiam is on the busy C/ de Sa Lluna, just a short walk from the centre.
The food here is a bargain, with dishes ranging from 2.50-9.20 euros.
Tables to book
I quite like sitting out on the street and watching the world go by, especially if I’m on my own, which I invariably am. With friends I’d opt for a quieter and more private table on the small terrace out back.
