It all started with a Malaysian food stall based on Gordon Lane offering homemade dishes bursting with Asian flavours. Well, it actually started before that.

Julie Lin MacLeod has been fascinated by cooking since she was a child. Inspired by her Malaysian mother, who moved to Glasgow to live with her dad, Julie started experimenting with recipes. Encouraged by friends she applied for MasterChef and progressed to the quarter finals in the 2014 series.

After that she worked with Babu Bombay Street Kitchen before setting out on her own with Julie’s Street Kitchen. She’s continued to work on television with STV Glasgow and you’ll see her colourful culinary creations at food markets regularly.

Now Julie’s Kopitiam, a Malaysian coffee shop, will provide a permanent home for Julie’s cooking. The location was previously Cafe Strange Brew, who moving across the street on Pollokshaws Road earlier in the year, allowing Julie the opportunity to join the burgeoning food scene in this part of town.

The plan was to open in April. It didn’t quite work out like that. However, Julie’s Kopitiam has slowly taken shape and setbacks have been overcome. Tonight they opened. The compact local hangout is ready to welcome customers.
