Family-owned Kopitiam serves fabulous Phuket soul food in an atmospheric old shophouse: Phuketian pàt tai with a kick, chai chae (chili-dressed noodle salad) and fantastic mee sua (noodles sautéed with egg, greens, prawns, sea bass and squid). Wash it all down with fresh chrysanthemum or passion-fruit juice. There are two branches (one air-con), either side of the Oldest Herbs Shop.
