Popo Thunder Tea, Petaling Jaya

Three months old now, Popo Thunder Tea tackles the wholesome Hakka classic of lei cha, beloved long before contemporary rice bowls came into fashion. 

Served out of a PJ kopitiam, the lei cha is alluringly aromatic, rich with tea leaves and herbs blended into a thick, comforting soup that brims with fresh-tasting goodness. Pour it over chewy-nutty brown rice, rounded out with a multi-textured medley of various veggies, tofu, onions and peanuts - plus fried dried prawns that furnish a tasty touch of brininess to garnish the green earthiness of the lei cha (RM11).
