Disclaimer: Operating hours may differ slightly during this time. Most of these kopitiams operate up until lunch time, but stay open to offer tai chow in the evening.

1. Restoran Meisek (USJ 14)

Meisek is a staple for USJ residents. The kopitiam is famous for its authentic Sarawak laksa and kolo mee, as well as its char koay teow with lots of wok hei. Their Hainanese kopi peng is also incredibly aromatic, and comes with the best no-spill packaging.

During the initial Movement Control Order, Meisek was one of the first few kopitiams in USJ to implement strict SOPs and an efficient tapau-ing system. You can even buy Hainanese bread, kaya, and kampung eggs here.

At night, the hawker stalls at Meisek are closed, but you can order steamed chicken and bean sprouts, along with rice, noodles, or porridge from Lian Kee Chicken Rice.

But if you can't get your hands on the baos, fret not. The kopitiam serves up delicious hakka mee, curry chee cheong fun, and bitter gourd noodle soup. For those who like their kopi kaw, you won't be disappointed with their coffee – they even blend it in a mixer before serving.

The rojak is as good as it always has been, and you can get it with an egg, with sotong, or the full-on version of both sotong and egg.

Besides that, some Subang-ites swear by the cendol – the icy dessert features fragrant brown sugar and glutinous rice.

Yee Kee Yong Tau Fu House offers delicious yong tau fu, both fried and in soup. The unique thing about this restaurant is that they will freshly make the yong tau fu right after you've picked the ingredients. The fillings here are also generous, and overall cheaper compared to similar restaurants. However, be warned when picking your ingredients, 'cause it's super easy to over-order. ;P

One of the items you must get is the chee cheong fun, which is smooth and super tasty together with the sweet sauce and chilli sauce. The fried dumplings are never a bad idea too.
