-- Translated by Jackson Mah -- Mohd Rudin Sulaimeen,東主 哥打巴魯 Kedai Kopi Din Tokyo 馬來西亞人最愛的“拉茶(teh tarik)”,就是把熱騰騰的奶茶重覆從一個大杯倒到另一個大杯,以讓奶茶冷卻下來。拉茶人的功夫,就在於拉茶的高度:茶拉得越高,泡沫越多,功夫越好。 在哥打巴魯,Rudin是數一數二的拉茶大師。30多年來,他就站在自己的咖啡店裡那張獨特的U形餐檯施展拉茶技藝。雖然他已經74歲,但還是能輕鬆拉出一杯足足雙臂長的好茶。很多人慕名來看他的表演,一嘗那杯遠近馳名、泡沫滿滿的拉茶。 即使不斷忙著準備茶料和拉茶,Rudin也不忘和顧客談天說笑。有顧客要求自己的茶要拉上6次,他也開心順著完成要求。 這位能者多勞,也可以一邊煮生熟蛋(在他的店被叫做塔利班蛋,telur taliban)、一邊烤麵包並洗碗碟。雖然全家都來幫忙,但他還是喜歡親力親為。 咖啡店的店名除了Rudin,另一半則是這店的前身Tokyo Hotel。在60年代,Tokyo Hotel算是當地的地標。然而到了今日,Kedai Kopi Din Tokyo也同樣聞名。Rudin的兒子也毫無疑問能駕輕就熟接過這盤長青的生意。...
