Located in the Lower East Side of New York City, Kopitiam is a fast casual eatery home to Nyonya cuisine.
At Kopitiam, coffee shop in Hokkien, we serve as a daily gathering space introducing visitors to Nyonya cuisine, primarily a hybrid of Chinese and Malay flavors drawing ingredients and techniques from both cultures along with sprinkles of influences from the Portuguese, Dutch, and the British.
The goal of head chef and founder of Kopitiam, Kyo Pang, a third-generation Baba Nyonya and restaurateur Moonlynn Tsai is to continually carrying forward Pang’s family's recipes in New York City and preserve the fading tradition in cooking dishes the way her ancestors did.
No additives or artificial coloring are used, instead, hues are made fresh by sourcing ingredients directly from Malaysia or nearby markets.
We are thrilled for you to join us and look forward to seeing you soon!
