Taïm is my all-time favorite place for Falafel! Taïm means tasty in Hebrew, and so is their falafel! Though I work in Midtown Manhattan, I still make the trek downtown to the West Village to relieve my craving for falafel.
I discovered Kopitiam, this hidden gem, during one of my walks in Chinatown. It’s a small “stop and go” place that serves typical Malaysian dishes for breakfast and snacks. It’s run by a Malaysian family, and their kitchen is the size of my bathroom…Tiny! Resourceful, creative…their food has to be authentic and good. I made a mental note to return.
I went back and fell in love with the place. My prior thoughts were also correct. This is now one of my top 10 places in Chinatown.
