I have read a lot about this place not until recently we all came by and throng this place with Andrew’s parents as they are in town for the weekend. It is very hard to wake up early Sunday morning but haven’t been to this place, have to drag myself up. For being first time around this area, I must warn all of you that park nearby the kopitiam as I nearly got rob off my necklace gold chain around 9.30am. I was glad that they people sitting at the lorong at the mamak stall saw what was coming and I was lucky to escape unhurt. SO just be carefull around this area. Yut Kee
Yut Kee is a very old classic Hainanese kopitiam joint that served Hainanese Malaysian style Western Food that operate in the modern town area for very long time since started at 1928 and now which is taken care by the son that we can see mostly he is standing at the counter. The business is very good as you need to be there very early to get seats or waiting time can spill up to 30 minutes wait for a table. This coffee shop serving local specialties with one of their signature is Roti Babi which is not to be miss.
As the kopitiam atmosphere can still be seen with its a bit run down paint on the wall filled with marble table and wooden chairs.
Even hanging pictures on the wall reminds me of the kopitiam that I always go with my grandfather nearby his shop when I was a kid.
One of the very refreshing drinks that we really enjoy in early morning is ‘Sour Plum with Asam Drink‘. After taking a sip, we are instantly awake by its strong sourness and it is indeed refreshing.
Classic drink is Kopi, Kopi o’ Ice and Teh Ice.
The food came pretty fast as one shot they served all the food and filled up our table quite instantly.
Starting off a simple breakfast with toast bread with homemade Kaya and butter.
off course not to miss is with half boil egg to dip along with my bread.
Then Ken mention that one of the dish must order is their ‘Pork Chop’ shower with its gravy brown sauce, thin onion slices, potato and mix vegetable. The pork meat fried till brownish outside and the meat is soft, with its gravy just goes along very well, no wonder Ken mention that a must order dish.
One of their Classic signature item ‘Roti Babi’
Cut it into half you will see bread fried like along a layer of egg till a bit fluffy, stuff with pork, onion and carrot. Then you pour some Lee and Perrins sauce to bring up the taste. I guess this version and the one that I always had in Penang differ pretty much and I would say I still love Penang Style Roti Babi which is in mince meat form and fried till golden brown and served squarish.
Another crowd’s favourite is ‘Yut Kee Roasted Pork Roll’ . They do sell in slices or one whole loaf of it if I am not mistaken one whole loaf is seling for around RM140. Yet I do see many people ta pau back.
That is served pippin hot from the oven daily after 11am or 11.30am. When this roll are taken out, the smell of the wonderful crips aroma filled the whole coffee shop as like a super star just walk pass by. First time customer like me, would run out an see what is it about, as it happen the same to other new customer. Next is that we enquire what was it. . .
When this lady cut thru the pork, quite loud crack can be heard to show how crispy it is and its stuff with some herbs to make it aromatic which is only available from Friday – Sunday
For a try, we order a plate to try on it and it doesnt come cheap. 2 slices for RM15 that served with their homemade apple sauce. The skin were really crispy and the pork meat is juicy and tender inside, not bad for a taste if you are willing to pay for the price for just 2 piece as Andrew mention that last time he came it was only 2 slices for RM10.
Well, I guess we are starting to feel the pain of eating outside since nowdays so many things increase silently. Not bad kopitiam to hunt for breakfast and also I do noted that they do offer quite alot of fried meals that during weekdays it is very popular among the office crowd.
Our breakfast meal price ranges in between RM2-RM15.
