To grill or not to grill? If the answer is to grill, then head on to Chuan Hin Kopitiam for some very delicious grilled food. A variety of meat is made ready for selection, ranging from beef, fish, lamb, prawn, small bird, squid, and stingray. Sambal and balacan are the two main ingredients used to marinate the meat and fish, and they are grilled on top of a banana leaf to give them some added favour. The must have platters are the delicious grilled squid and tasty grilled stingray, both come with a bit of spicy taste.
Back in the 80s, the owner of Chuan Hin Kopitiam used to run a rented store from Lai Lai Kopitiam at Luyang. Her grilled food was already well known to the KK Lites then. Grilled food goes specially well with the iced cold beers served by Lai Lai Kopitiam. Years of hard work and perseverance earned enough capital to open up her own shop, the present day Chuan Hin Kopitiam.
