Q: Introduction of yourself
I’m Miss Foo, 31 years old. I manage all the outlets overseas.
Q: What is the concept of Poppo Canteen?
It is founded by Mr. Lim. ‘Poppo Canteen’ as the name suggests is a canteen- inspired cafe and the menu we use is like a primary school exercise book. From renovation, design to recruitment, everything is done by the boss himself because he is the only founder of Poppo Canteen. Poppo Canteen is here to relive the nostalgic moments of being a student. We provide a range of food with lower price just like a school canteen.
Q: What is the philosophy when it comes to cooking?
We emphasize on providing a variety of tasty food at affordable price. For example, local food like nasi lemak, cheesy bread, roti boom, fried squid, chicken wings with different flavours, Chinese food and Western food.
Q: What is the best seller?
Nasi lemak would be our best dish. It is very different from others because we use special ingredient to fry the egg, ikan bilis and peanuts. On top of the rice there is a little bit of shredded coconut which you can’t find anywhere else. Mr. Lim always wanted to come out with something different from others to make his food stand out from the rest. Another best seller would be ABC (bean ice). Most of the ingredients are not bought from the market, instead we cook them ourselves.
Q: As I know, there are already 3 outlets in KL. Do you plan to further expand your business?
We plan to open another outlet in Puchong.
Q: What is the most enjoyable moment working with Poppo Canteen?
The happiest moment is that when I see the hard work of my boss finally paid off with more and more outlets opening up. I feel so proud and respectful of my boss.
