Opened by Malaysian couple Sonny & Debra with a view to benefiting indigenous workers from Sabah & Sarawak as well as people who might not be able to afford a meal.

This chicken is damn bloody good. A must dish to order if you re here.

The Sarawak Laksa is also just as good. Not so spicy but very flavorful.

We had to try the Nasi Lemak because it’s a common food in Malaysia and everyone eats it. Here it’s best to go with the Ayam Goreng Berempah.

Just 2 of us and we shared 3 items. Totally satisfying meal and for dessert we had the Durian soft ice-cream. Buy one free one. Yummy!

There are two components of Charlie’s mission. Behind the scenes in the kitchen, the Borneo-born Sonny & Debra employ mainly folks from East Malaysia & try to use a fair bit of indigenous produce for their menu. Secondly, for customers who want to help out, a pay-it-forward sponsored-meals system is available: Give the cashier RM5, take a receipt & post it on the board; other people who come in can claim a free meal using your receipt if they’re short of cash or struggling to make ends meet.

There are so many varieties of food in Nam Chuan Coffee Shop and in fact there are so many eateries in Lucky Garden’s itself in Bangsar.

When I first visited Nam Chuan Coffee Shop the first thing that caught my eye was the famed Aunt Christina’s Sarawak Laksa, which is still arguably the most famous version in all of Klang Valley. Some may beg to differ but her version was the closest to the ones I had in Kuching.

Must remember to ask locals where you can get really good authentic laksa. In my case the hotel I was staying was a stone’s throw away to the restaurant. Really good laksa.

Besides the Sarawak laksa the Kolo mee is also very good and not forgetting the popiah which is crunchy when you bite into it. I would always eat this 3 types of food whenever i am in the cafe.
