Malaysia Kopitiam, Washington D.C.

On our first night in Washington, we wandered around for a while, but when our hunger got the best of us, we started to look for somewhere to eat. We walked past the basement entrace to the Malaysia Kopitiam, and decided that it looked worth a go. Little did we realise that we had stumbled upon a little treasure.

The Malaysia Kopitiam is a regular guest in Cheap Eats and Best Restaurants lists and it's easy to see why once you've been there. Located in a basement on M Street, the Malaysia Kopitiam offers some of the finest Asian food I've eaten. The menu is extensive, but comes with a binder containing photos of all the food on offer. We had chicken and lamb satay skewers to start with, which were freshly grilled and served with plenty of satay sauce. For mains we chose Singapore Noodles and Beef Rendang. The rendang was generous and beautifully tender. I've often made rendang at home (or at least what I thought it was) so it was good to taste the real thing and realise that I wasn't that far off the mark at home.

Service was super courteous and attentive throughout and the bill was a very pleasant surprise. Next time I'm back in Washington, I'm definitely heading there again.
