Heap Seng Leong was founded in the 1970s, and little has changed since then. You can still see the owner, an elderly guy in his 80s, brewing kopi at the shop. Heap Seng Leong is famous for its traditional kopi gu, or coffee with melted butter.

Isn't that a weird combination? But don't worry, this will undoubtedly be one of the most peculiar kopi that you won't find anywhere else since Heap Seng Leong is one of the few places that provides this artery-clogging kopi.
