Previously when I was introduce to Anuar’s Fish Head Curry & Indian Apam at Lucky Garden, I was told that this malay food stall also offer great food. Decided to come by since I am on my way back to ease my cravings for apam. Yusof Tomyam is another stall ad the far end that enjoys good business at night.

Its funny to see how the guy look at me while eating. .  I can see in the kicthen its operate by young malay chef and its quite busy in there with a few chef in a line.

 This is one of a very traditional Indian apam next to this Malay stall that I am craving for.

Since I was told that thier Tomyum and fish range are a must order then I ordered Ikan Bawal Goreng Tiga Rasa. When it was serve, the aroma of it is so fragrant and can still smell the freshly fried fish smell. The fish is fried to perfection that the skin and tail is so crisps that shower along with this gravy that is so fragrant, with light spicy and sour end. The more I take on the gravy, the more spicy it had become as it cook along with chili padi. NExt is  telur bistik which I forgot to take picture on. Egg fried in gravy that pair with my rice perfectly well.

Here comes the Tomyum Chicken. Loving it as it has well balance of spicy and sour to my liking. Chicken is soft that they did not over cook it.

Overall if you are asking me where to get nice Halal food or nice malay food in Bangsar, certainly this is one of the stall that I would be recommending. Decent pricing and the food is above average.

Love their interior, which is pretty simple with red brick wall, high stool coffee tables around the area, sofa seating behind that makes it one of a attraction for younger crowds to hang out.

This round, lets head to the local favourites that was told this stall operate in an ally back in those days, as their business boom up, then now they have gotten a shop right at the corner busy junction. A local favourite that miss by many locals around the area is this little Halal Abang Is Char Koey Teow, which is more towards malay version which is located in Bukit Mertajam, Penang.

wet CKT (1)

It might look very empty, as I was their during dinner hours, which they just started operation, as it heads towards woo hours, the crowd will start pouring in.

wet CKT (2)

wet CKT (3)

In their menu, they have limited choice of food to chose from as this is what they are good at according to my friend, also very reasonably price.

wet CKT (4)

wet CKT (5)

This is what they are famous for, wet version of Char Koey Teow or what I called it Koey Teow Basah as I order a small one, because I just had dinner at another place before heading here. One reason that attracted many people to drop by is their soup base koey teow, taste a bit sweet, salty and a bit thick in flavour, every spoonfull you get to drink with soup that is just perfect. Portion is just right at RM3 for small. You can try their special as filled with  more seafood that price at RM5. Pretty good deal.

I have tried before a few Malay version Abang IS Char Koey Teow and definately this stall hit the top at the moment. Its a crowd favourite around the neighborhood, if you do drop by, you can give it a try. . .

How many of you do you actually dine or yum cha at local kopitiam especially on local franchise chain? Often that we do not have satisfactory food or drinks in certain outlet. It was not until recently that Carmen insist to bring me here for the main reason they serve pretty good food for a franchise chain and second because her friend operate this outlet. This outlet certainly have my vote in ..

[close down]

Hailam (1)

This shop is located at one of my favourite Pork Ball Noodle Kopitiam (click here) which is directly behind is this Hailam Kopitiam, also facing directly Bangsar Village.

Hailam (2)

A place that you can dine quite cozy with marble tables and wooden chairs, as there are alot of fans in the ceiling that keeps the cool air around.

Hailam (3)

They have pretty wide range of food and drinks and price wise I find it rather cheap compare to another 2 brands. One good thing about this shop as it is a HALAL kopitiam.

Hailam (4)

Hailam (5)

Traditional Hazelnut White Coffee, Ice Roasted Coffee and Hailam Milk Teao

Hailam (7)

Passion Fruit & Dragon Fruit Shake @ RM 7.50

Hailam (8)

Traditional Hailam Tea and Traditional Hailam Roasted Coffee @ RM3.20

I am not really a coffee drinker as most of my friend know, as I drink coffee I have the opposite effect which is getting sleepy. One thing that really love is the coffee here. Certainly beats quite a number of places that the taste of coffee is robust, well blend, strong in aroma and did not go too milky. If you are here, certainly its a recommended drink!

Hailam (9)

A simple Toasted Sliced Bread with Butter & Kaya @ RM2.50 where you think most of us can do it at home, I just do not know what is the trick that it can be toasted out crispy and with one bite, you can see the crumbs dropping off and a simple spread of butter and kaya makes it a simple bites to be wobble down. Must eat it while it is freshly out from the toaster! If you pair this with the hot coffee and  half boil egg it would be the most perfect combination of all!!

Hailam (10)

For the price of RM 7.20 for Chicken Deluxe Sandwich, it is certainly reasonable in price with generous amount of ingredient added in, chunks of chicken and vege with sauce evenly spread makes it nice to eat.

Hailam (11)

Tuna Egg Sandwich @ RM5.20

Hailam (12)

Star of the night is this Hailam Chicken Chop with Original Sauce. We never expect a chicken chop will taste so good and impress us so far at this kind of restaurant chain. It is juicy and tender, as the meat is not dry, sauce is well balance that I just requested for another bowl of sauce to make it gravvyyyy enough for me on the chicken and fries. Recommended!  RM14.20

Hailam (13)

A dish of Mix Fried Mee (Fried Ying Yeong) especially with HALAL status, caught us by surpise that it was fried perfectly with wok hei, that certainly can match with many chinese hawker center area on quality. I just had this again when I was meeting my friend there 2 hours ago. It is satisfied, and my malay friend find it delicious.Recommended! RM7.80

Hailam (14)

I always love to try tomyam fried rice, not many places that can fried this to my likings, either too powdery, or the taste is too strong. Then find that Hailam Tomyam Fried Rice offer in this shop is well balance in taste, with a bit of sourish and spicy that comes to my liking. RM8.80

Hailam (15)

A simple malaysian delicacies which is Nasi Lemak Special with Rendang Ayam, with rice is very fragrant with coconut milk that serve along with thick curry gravy and eat along with the sambal just goes along very well. RM9.60

Hailam (16)

Fried Kuey Teow another dish that surprise us. Fried with enough wok hei, till the koay teow is very fragrant and while smelling it, already makes a lot people hungry. After the first bite into our mouth, we were stun! the taste is very similiar to the ones in Penang, not only that, it was fried without pork lard and we just cannot imagine that if the chef can fried with pork lard, this dish will be a big hit among many people. Recommended!

Hailam (17)

Hailam Fried Mee/ Hailam Mee @ RM8.50

Hailam (18)

Curry Noodle

I know that many franchise chain food are quite disappointing, but when comes to this outlet, I would want to say that their food certainly outstanding compare to other shops and I have went back here a few times since I was brought by Carmen that I must thank her now, even now I know where to bring my Malay friends when they crave for nice chinese  HALAL food.

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.

yut kee (2)

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.

yut kee (3)

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.

yut kee (4)

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.

yut kee (5)

Classic drink is Kopi, Kopi o’ Ice and Teh Ice.

yut kee (6)

The food came pretty fast as one shot they served all the food and filled up our table quite instantly.

yut kee (7)

Starting off a simple breakfast with toast bread with homemade Kaya and butter.

yut kee (8)

off course not to miss is with half boil egg to dip along with my bread.

yut kee (9)

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.

yut kee (10)

One of their Classic signature item ‘Roti Babi’

yut kee (11)

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.

yut kee (13)

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.

yut kee (12)

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

yut kee (14)

 

yut kee (15)

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.

Nowdays a lot of people head to Klang to hunt for food, journey there is not that short yet not that long, usually have to make the best out of it would be the mini food hunting scene.

‘Claypot Chicken Curry’  is thick in gravy, a bit spicy yet not too much of coconut milk added in, eating it with the rice is just a perfect combination. RM6 (small portion)
