Special Coffee looks special and different from the ordinary coffee in kopitiam. However, I feel it tastes almost the same like the ordinary coffee and fail to taste any difference in it.

Babyshake is nevertheless a special drink which consists of milk tea and a small amount of coffee powder. There is a strong flowery taste in it as well.

Sin Ming Hong coffee shop is the oldest coffee shop in that area. It opened before I was born in Butterworth.
