Kopi Teh Silay: Bringing Singaporean Hawker Food to Silay City and Bacolod City

Kopi Teh is a new restaurant in Silay city that brings Singaporean Hawker Food to Silay City and Negros Island. It is run out of a home located in Dr. Triño Montinola Street, Antilla Subdivision Silay City. The owner of Kopi Teh used to work in Singapore and he loved the food so much that he decided to bring the awesome hawker food culture of Singapore to Silay city!

Kopi Teh appears to be a small space but actually there is more seating on the right side. Practically the whole front area of the house and garden is now the restaurant and its dining area.

The food is so affordable at Kopi Teh, we ordered almost everything on the menu!

It is so nice to have a space that serves delicious Asian food. Kopi Teh is totally different from your usual garage type restaurants. Their concept is cheap but delicious Singaporean Hawker food and it works absolutely well!

Here we got Kopi Teh’s Nyonya Chicken Curry, Mee Goreng, Bak Kut Teh and Hainanese Style chicken !

Mee Goreng is a popular fried noodle dish that’s known to most Filipinos as pancit! Kopi Teh‘s version sticks more to its Singaporean roots by using peanuts and chilies in the Mee Goreng, something that is not usually used in Filipino pancit. The result is a delicious spicy-sweet combination. Kopi Teh also adds a delicious fried egg to top off this dish. Very nice and definitely a must try on your visit to Kopi Teh.

Kopi Teh has Hainanese chicken rice – a favorite dish found in a lot of Singaporean hawker stalls. Hainanese chicken rice is a dish of steamed chicken served with several sauces. Kopi Teh serves three kinds of sauces as well as a broth made from steaming the chicken. Very flavorful. You can eat this in so many ways. Our favorite is mixing the rice (garnished with cucumber and ginger) and a little bit of the soup to add flavor.

Kopi Teh has Nyonya Chicken Curry – a coconut cream based curry served with potatoes and a curry mix from Singapore. The curry is flavorful and with a familiar taste that Filipinos will love.

The next dish that we got from Kopi Teh is their Bak Kut Teh. This literally translates to “meat bone tea” and well, it practically is. The pork ribs are simmered until tender in a soup with star anise, cinnamon and other things. It’s a nice flavorful soup.

The two best selling dishes at Kopi Teh are two very popular noodle soups. When you visit Kopi Teh, you must absolutely try their Laksa and their Tom Yum Goong.

Laksa is a spicy coconut based noodle dish popular in Indonesia, Singapore and other Asian countries. Kopi Teh’s version is nice and creamy with the addition of tofu, shrimps and other things. They use red curry to add more flavor. Highly recommended.

Want something sourish and spicy? Try Kopi Teh’s Tom Yum Goong! This bowl is packed! It comes with shrimps, noodles and a small bundle of enoki mushrooms. It also comes with a leaf of lime. Super yummy! The name Tom Yung Goong means sweet, sour and spicy soup with prawns

To top it all off, you must try Kopi Teh’s Kaya toast! It’s a sweet sandwich made with coconut kaya jam that takes Kopi Teh two hours just to prepare.

Eating this is something special. You see, the kaya toast comes with a soft poached egg with soy sauce. Give the egg a stir and dip the toast in it! It may sound weird but the resulting taste of sweet, savory and salty is amazing. You have to try it!

Kopi teh also has several drinks on their menu. Check them out too!
