Kedai Cheong Fong @ Kalumpang, Selangor

For old school coffee and steamed Hainanese Bread and Buns, I would recommend visiting Cheong Fong that is located in Kalumpang town. This little town which was once a mining town had lost all it's glory, sadly to the migration of families to larger cities. In fact today, only three shops are still operating in the entire town.

Old School Design

Colonial Architecture 

Lovely Atmosphere
This restaurant opens for breakfast and they sell their signature Hainanese Curry Mee. After that, they start making Pau's and trust me they are already sold out even before they start making them. Customers who are passing through that day would call in to order and they literally order by the cartons. Even this afternoon, I wanted to have Pau but they ran out of it.

Hainanese Tea @ RM 1.30

Hainanese Coffee @ RM 1.30
Both their Hainanese Tea and Coffee are good. The coffee is ground the traditional way with margarine and it has such a classic taste. Similarly, their Tea is another excellent preparation. For both these drinks, I would give them 9/10. 

Steamed Bread @ RM 3.00
If you have never tried the Hainanese Steamed Bread and Buns, then you have got to give this place a try. They are so good and the bread is served with their homemade Kaya and Butter. Again, those two as so tasty as well. My rating for this is 10/10.

One of those last few shops that is still in existence in Kalumpang town is Cheong Fong. They have been making Hainanese Pau's for over three generations and there is so much demand, so much so they are sold out even before they start making. That is the volume of telephone orders that comes in and customers buy by the cartons. Besides Pau, they do sell all the items that you would typically get in an old school Hainanese Coffee Shop. My favourite is their Steamed Bread that comes with their very own homemade Kaya and Butter. Coffee and Tea is equally good. If you're here for breakfast, you would get to enjoy their Curry Mee which again sells out fast. Best time to visit them would be before 11 am. But be prepared to wait in line for a table.
