Yut Kee Restaurant @ Jalan Dang Wangi, Kuala Lumpur

Monday, December 1, 2008

Yut Kee is considered one of the oldest coffee shops in Kuala Lumpur or Malaysia, started way back since 1920s. Yut Kee Restaurant is a Hainanese restaurant, which serves Chinese food. As for deco wise, once you enter Yut Kee, it’s like a visit to the past, their round marble tables with rickety chairs. Old fashioned wooden shutter windows and winding wooden staircase. The wall is adorned with a simple hand-written menu while an old portrait of the founder hangs over the counter. Casually dressed waiters running round the shop like clockwork ferrying dishes fresh from the kitchen serving the eagerly waited patrons.
Yut Kee offers different varieties of noodles, rice dishes, pork dishes, and other delicacies that will make you crazy. Few of their specialties are the hand made noodles, homemade kaya, and bread (their toast is highly recommended with homemade kaya). In fact, Yut Kee in Kuala Lumpur is known for its quick and tasty food. It is the perfect place to catch up on a light snack or etc.
Another popular dish is the ‘Roti Babi’ = Pork Bun. A Chinese sandwich, which has pork fillings dipped in egg and deep-fried. The bread is thicker and not too crispy, but the filling is not bad.
If you really want to try Hainanese food, try their Hainanese Pork Chop. The Hainanese Pork Chops was of course another acclaimed dish. Pork fillet fried in a batter with a mix salad of onions, peas and potatoes. Top that off with a flavorful Worcestershire sauce, it has complements the dish well.
Their Curry Chicken rice/mee/bee hon (Ok, pass) and Belacan Fried Rice also come recommended. Also, you’ll notice that the marble butter cake and kaya swiss roll are very popular so do try if you pay a visit.
However, their Hainanese noodle is a bit coarse and bland. The noodle was not good or not bad, it just disappointed.
Unfortunately, the restaurant gets extremely busy during lunchtime. Seats are limited hence it is normal to share tables with strangers.

the pork chop is good. my pork porridge was bland. Hainanese noodle also bland. The curry was good. Roti babi and french toast was too oily for my taste. The kaya accompanying the toast was homemade and tasted good actually.
