Ok..ok maybe I´m bias because the Chef is my brother but he IS good.
The cafe only opens officially at 8pm til 3am daily except for 1st Syawal.
Unofficially, just drop by if you see my brother at his cafe.
Open-air dining is the added ambience and you feel like eating among your friends
Favorite Dish: Definitely:
1. Chicken Chop - big portion for about RM7.00 per plate with delicious gravy. Fresh garden salad and fries. Yummy2.
2.Kuey Tiow Kerabu - looks plain but telling you it´s very very hot. So don´t be fooled. Sweet yet spicy.Price about RM3.00
3. Soup-in-Bread - a choice of chicken or mushroom soup.Very filling
Drinks? Asked for Teh Tarik and need something cooler, try Mix Fruit Ice-Blended - a mixture of fresh fruits and a bit of syrup and ice.
By the way if you are eating the noodles/rice don´t forget to ask for Lada Jeruk (Pickled Chili). A very special pickle mix with spice.
The Nan Yang Coffee Shop is located at Jalan Awang, in the heart of old Segamat town, just of the left hand side of the trunk road to Johor Baru. It serves good coffee and nothing else but toasted bread. The coffee is acceptable and I would grade it as better than the coffee at The Kluang Railway Station. Although the shop is small, it is airy and cozy enough for a nice cup of coffee and watch the world go by, not that there are anything much to watch.

Nan Kwang restaurant is about 100 footsteps far away from NanYang restaurant, I came by fluke for that was a public holiday and NanYang was closed and I had to search for another kopitiam to un-addict the coffee 'gian'. However I find Nan Kwang restaurant served some tasty foods as well especially the Chinese Yong Tau Foo noodles and then I ordered two glasses of 'kopipeng' without regret, as good as the famous NanYang but the toast need a little bit improve, more skills in making the kaya. The atmosphere is definitely top class inside an old non-decorative house.
Big bread in the glass is actually the breads on display inside Nanyang restaurant, while eating, I never forget to turn back taking photos of many things. I saw the bread each about twice bigger than your head, in a moment, an old man walked out from the kitchen, he grabbed one and return back, the size was exactly double your head, serious, and that was what I ate, so delicious.
Nanyang restaurant at Jalan Awang, post code 85000, Segamat, Johor state, Malaysia. Well, just look at the architecture, its like going back to 1950s during the British days, absolute antiquity ambience, the interior too, plus all the dining materials, even some of the kitchen workers were old men. The name too was old enough, Nanyang meaning Southern Sea, it was the mass migration of Chinese workers during the British industrial revolution days.
Toasts and coffee combine to give you the very special of Segamat. I ate 2 set of toasts with two cups of coffee for less than RM5, expensive or cheap? I like the toasts, while eating, I look around to see actually almost every customers were eating toasts too, but not all drinking coffee, some drink Milo or 'kopipeng'.
Consider an above average standard Chinese restaurant in small town. this place is nicely decorated, its clean & neat. The lady boss will brief guests on their dishes as no menu is provided. Looks like most are regular guests
Favorite Dish: Thai Sweet & Sour chicken at RM35. tasty and portion is big enough for 10 people to shares. Other food are on the average.
Food we ordered:
Fried Hokkien Noodle @Rm10
chinese pork rib @RM15
stirred fried green veg @RM8
hot plat bean curd @RM10
Fried oyster eggs@RM10
Hot Plate Otak @RM10 - Don't try this, lousy
Stirred Fried Fresh water Prawn @RM60
This is a traditional old Chinese coffee shop which serves one of the best kopi in town. You can smell the coffee aroma the minute you reach the shop.....and of course you can order the yummy traditional toasted bread with kaya & butter.
The shop is always crowded & noisy in the morning. However, one can spend a quiet afternoon here watching people passing by. Everything is slow in a warm & lazy afteroon.
Favorite Dish: kopi = coffee with condensed milk
Nanyang restaurant (coffee shop) Halal. I won't tell you how the coffee taste, you have to taste yourself. I only give you this tip to promote Segamat, go try it, the top 1 coffee shop in Malaysia.
