Kopitiam NEW Sandfly Café Pasir Panjang, near Redang Bay Resort, Pulau Redang.
A Chinese coffee shop offering wellpriced local and Western dishes, with walls painted bright pink and blue. Hard to miss, really. Get a seat on the small porch and chow on a steaming dish of fried rice (it’s really good), or hor fun, a noodle dish in thick broth. Opt for beer and maybe a bowl of shaved ice from the neighbouring Redang Bay dessert stall. Good food, overlooking the blindingly blue water; life doesn’t get much better than that.
