    Nestled in NYC’s bustling Chinatown, Kopitiam, with it’s unassuming restaurant front, is our latest recommendation for healthy NYC eats.¬†Eater Drinks editor, Kat Odell, is walking¬†us through the unpretentious menu and introducing us to a world of Malaysian coconut-based snacks from coconut jam, rose-scented milks and morning glory sticky rice we can’t stop craving…

    What I Ate:

    Kopitiam’s coconut-based snacks.

    Why I Ate It:

    Because I love discovering oft-overlooked ethnic gems, and Kopitiam knows its way – especially – around a coconut.

    Why You Need It:

    When the wait at Dimes stretches beyond your threshold of patience, there’s an excellent – if snug – Malaysian cafe just next door ready to serve you rose-scented milk, thick, rich Penang white coffee, and all means of coconut-flavored treats. Thick, pillowy slices of toasted white bread are aggressively smeared with neon green pandan-hued kaya coconut jam. Even better when dunked into one of the cafe’s rich coffee drinks. Periwinkle blue sticky rice stained with morning glory flowers is neatly bundled in a banana leaf, a crown of toasted, grated coconut mixed wth palm sugar peering out. A must-try!
