This traditional old school kopitiam (coffee shop) is an institution for KL-ites. Situated near the centre of the Kuala Lumpur City Centre on Jalan Kamunting, Yut Kee has been dishing out delicious Hainanese dishes for decades.
One of the ‘go-to’ places for a typical Malaysian breakfast, Yut Kee serves up an interesting variety of dishes ranging from the staple, half-boiled eggs with toast, to more elaborate offerings such as the Roasted Pork Roll, which is only available on weekends. Other mainstay favourites include the Roti Babi – a deep fried bun stuffed with minced pork, stir-fried Hailam Noodles, and the Hainanese style Pork and Chicken Chop.
The décor of the outlet is stereotpically Chinese with Western influences such as mosaic tiles and it exudes a nostalgic appeal that keeps fans and foodies coming back for more. As such, it’s not surprising to find a regular crowd lining up outside the outlet to get a table in the morning – espeically on weekends.
