Kedai Kopi New Light @ Gurun, Kedah

Kedai Kopi New Light (Opposite the Gurun Magistrate’s Court)
294, Main Road,
Gurun, Kedah.
Open 6am-6pm.
Closed on Saturdays.

THIS 60-year-old coffee shop is located mid-way along the trunk road between Alor Star and Penang. Since the North-South Expressway was completed, most travellers generally bypass Gurun, but the eatery continues to be well patronised.

All-day dim sum is available here. The selection may not be wide but it is adequate and the dim sum is fresh. You’ll find common bites like siew mai, fish balls, taro cake and other fried dim sum varieties.

The asam laksa, served with a generous helping of prawn paste, is right on the money with its tangy flavour, and the consistently good sotong kangkung is highly recommended too.

There must be something special about the greens here for people to come from far away to buy bags of the vegetbles. Also recommended are the blanched cockles, which are very fresh.

The restaurant next door, which opens after 7pm, is well-known for its frog noodles and other dishes incorporating the amphibian (this is the original shop famed for its frog specialty dishes).
