Old Town White Coffee, Jalan Alor, Kuala Lumpur

The corporate tentacles of big-business start to strangle Jalan Alor.

Well,that's what I first thought when Old Town White Coffee opened-up a few months back.

I imagined a Jalan Alor full of franchised outfits such as Starbucks,Coffee Bean,The Chicken Rice Shop and Papa Rich-and thought how horrible it would be....

But Old Town has opened in an Hotel lobby so the street is probably safe for now.

Old Town White Coffee is a local franchise chain that seems to be cashing-in on the nostalgia boom that is beginning to sweep the nation and most shopping malls now have some sort of nostalgia themed F & B outlet.

If you *must* have an overpriced coffee whilst sitting in an uncomfortable chair then this place is better than Starbucks or Coffee Bean-and the Hazel Nut flavoured Iced Coffee at RM6.00 is pretty damn fine.
