The thought of waiting at klia2 can bring out a few yawns. It takes a while to wait for your next flight or loved ones at the arrival gate, but there are things you can do to make every minute count at the airport.

1. Baiwago Plus Café
It’ll take a while for the boarding gate to open. While you wait, pick up some freshly baked pastries and coffee from Baiwago Plus Café. A Taiwanese café specialising in grab-and-go bread and pastries, look out for dirty choco bread, red bean custard bun and Taiwan rosong bread on display.

Originating from Taiwan, this sandwich bar is famous for flipping crispy and fluffy scallion pancakes. Prepare to queue for their scallions’ sandwich, chicken Bolognese sandwich, cheese and egg sandwich and more. Want to try Jay Chou’s favourite? We heard it’s the Liang chicken sandwich.

A café originated from South Korea; this one upped the ante by pairing crunchy churros with premium soft-serve ice cream. With toppings like choco choco, choco berry and mango, how can anyone turn down a dessert like ice cream churro? If you’re a fan of the classics, get the standard churros topped with cinnamon, chocolate or cheese.

4. Kluang Station
What we have here is not your ordinary local café. Kluang Station was inspired by a close-to-home Kopitiam culture that once (and still) thrived in Kluang, Johor. If you have time to spare before your family walks out from the arrival gate, savour an all-day breakfast ranging from nasi lemak to mee siam. You can also come early before your flight to enjoy delicious offerings such as curry laksa and kaya toast set.
We’re bringing this up because the all-day breakfast set comes with coffee or tea. What does it mean to your pocket? You can save yourself from paying extra for teh tarik and kopi panas. Address: L2-23, Level 2, [email protected], Jalan KLIA2/1, 64000 KLIA, Sepang Operating hours: Daily, 6.30AM-11.30PM Halal status: Halal-certified Website | Facebook | Instagram
5. PappaRich
Credit: @iam.zahir on Instagram Mention PappaRich and the name is enough to conjure thoughts of nasi lemak with fried chicken, char kway teow, and curry laksa special. A Malaysian restaurant through and through, some travellers prefer to start their day with Hainan French toast, half-boiled eggs and white coffee. Since PappaRich has a cosy ambience that’s great for hanging out, your loved ones might end up looking for you instead.

7. Boat Noodle
Sitting at the airport can conjure a sense of wanderlust. Before you fly to Bangkok, let Boat Noodle transport you to the floating markets of Ayutthaya through its mini-sized noodle soups. Dubbed as the ‘little bowls of happiness’, choose the popular Ayutthaya 2.0, dry tom yum, sweet kuey chap and more flavours. If ‘more is more’ is your dining philosophy, the restaurant has Bangkok fried rice, kra-pow chicken rice (Thai basil) and pad see ew (stir-fried soy sauce noodles) on the menu.

Slurping down a bowl of Penang laksa is a thing to do at Ah Cheng Laksa . A sour and spicy noodle soup topped with rice vermicelli, lettuce, onions and pineapple; you can enjoy it any time of the day. If you’re craving for something else, they have nasi lemak, curry chicken rice and herbal chicken soup to last till your family steps out from the arrival gate. Remember to pair your meal with a glass of soya bean for a refreshing finish.

9. Hometown Hainan Coffee
Credit: @wildy.wildly on Instagram You can tell how much Malaysians appreciate their modern Kopitiam by the crowd size at Hometown Hainan Coffee. The first thing to order is the Hainan coffee, a well-loved signature beverage. If you love coffee with a side of Hainan kaya butter bread or egg toast, this eatery has it! Hearty meals such as nasi lemak with fried chicken, Hainan chicken rice and curry chicken with roti canai are great if you have a hunger to satiate.

Seeing colourful plates of bite-sized sushi circling Sushi King is fun to watch. Just sit back and let your favourite unagi nigiri, tobikko gunkan, California maki and more come to you.
