Kluang Rail Coffee, Kluang, Johor

When my brother's GF first visited my hometown in Kluang, one of the thing that she looked forward to was to sample the food at Kluang Station.
But us being the lazy bones decided to drag the visit until the day we were due to return to KL :p.
Not too enthusiastic on our end eh? huhu
Anyways, we were there one late morning...
Some Kluang Station Coffee to wake us up?
Have it hot or iced?
Aromatic, a tad sweet, but a good wake up call. Though I'd still go for Kopi Cap TV if it's coffee from Kluang..hehe
The Roti Bakar
The bread's slightly dry, the kaya and butter was pretty good.
The Toasted Bun (white bread) was much tastier..
Bread was nicely charcoaled, had that slight smoky aroma, and was still soft inside. Though lacked kaya, they served the bread with sliced butter instead of spreading it. I love butter served in toasts in such a manner as you bite into hot bread, melting kaya and then the cooling effect of the chilled butter ,ending with a salty sweet note. Yums.
We also had the Toasted Bun (wholemeal bread)
I actually like this the best as the charcoal brings out the fragrance of the wholemeal bread. Great combination with kaya and butter.
So we asked Shirley on her thoughts after trying the Kluang Rail Coffee in Kluang. It was ok... Guessed she expected more?

I just realised I didnt take down the address. Sorry folks! But here's the picture..This branch is located right in the centre of the town, you wont miss it. And yes, the original branch is located at the Kluang Railway Station (KTM). There's more variety of mains at this branch though.

I would like to drop by the original Kluang Railway Station. It must have a nice feel about it. The smell of greasy metals and jarring sounds may be very appealing to some having a cuppa and some toast nearby.

I went to Kluang a few times for work but never got around to trying this place. The KL outlets seem to be packed all the time though, so I guess it must be pretty good?

cumi&ciki: must be yummy since you can slather as much kaya and sliced butter as you want

bangsar babe: high 5!

worldwindows: yup, greasy, rusty, noisy, with vibrating walls (when a train passes by) gives a very diff feel altogether..need to try it once to savour such moment..

boo: actually, kluang station's not my fave. we (my family and frens) do find it overrated a lil. i prefer to have charcoal toast at another kopitiam..

It should be really interesting if one of us ( or all of us )could do a little comparison between all these bygone era oldies now reborn in shopping centres and prime real estates to catch the youngies(?) , but with a new coat of Burmese/Nepalese
! after which we will answer that question( Part 1 ):
1. do old men really crave for new young things
2. do young things really like old men or issit old tastes ?

backStreetGluttons: though this branch is located at the 'modern' part of town, trust me, the decor is really old. i think they moed some stuff from the main branch to 'oldenised' it..hehehe. oh, all run by malays la. very local. we're just nostalgic young things, that's all :p

tummythoz: hahaha...all the way to kluang for this kopitiam? no need la... :p
