If you want to go fully local….It needs a bit of experience, expertise and language skills to order a coffee or a tea in Singapore… The choice is all yours !!
kopi = coffee (easy ey…..)
teh = tea (also rather trivial)
si = with condensed milk
o = with evaporated milk
Kosong = no sugar
Peng = ice
==> so an ice milk tea without sugar – teh si kosong peng.
If this is too complicated, there is an increasing number of sophisticated (aka the REAL continental european bread…) bakeries and latte shops
