Sunday Breakfast at Yut Kee Restaurant, Jalan Dang Wangi, Kuala Lumpur
It has been a while since we had a good Sunday breakfast. The last good one we had was in Seri Kembangan for dim sum. That was weeks ago. Yesterday morning, we decided to venture to a place that we haven’t visited before.
The ever popular Yut Kee. Located at Jalan Dang Wangi, Yut Kee has been around for years. Established at 1928, the place now is a whopping 82 years old and they are still going strong. The place itself is a pre-war building.
The interior is still the same as before. The characteristics of the place is still unchanged. Only now they have a LCD tv on the wall.
I like the way they preserved the place. For example, this antique safe. Godness, this was the first time I see something like this. Purely, antique!
Rachel ordered the “cham”. “Cham” is also known as “ying yong” a mixture of coffee and tea. The hot cham is value at RM1.30 (US 40c). Rachel loved the fragrance of the coffee in this.
There was nothing better than a good Pork chop for breakfast. Priced at RM 9 (US 2.20), the pork chop was tender. Coated with egg, the pork chop was deep fried and covered with the gravy. With fried potatoes, beans and carrots, the pork chop was pretty “alright”.
“Roti babi” or pork bread was priced at RM 7.50 (US 2). French toasted with fillings of a mixture of pork, onions and hints of crab meat. Rachel felt this was overpriced and there’s nothing to shout about. She felt it was too heavy for breakfast.
Supposingly they only sell their famous roast pork from 11.30 am but we got lucky yesterday. They took it out early to sell. Gosh look at the roast pork!
When they cut the roast pork, everyone wants it. Look at the colour of the meat. It was cooked perfectly.
The roast pork was served with the apple jam. Priced at RM 12 (US 3.30), a plate of serving came with only 2 pieces of the meat. Well, it was all worth it. The skin was magnificently crispy while the meat was tender. Similar to “siew yuk”, this was addictive!
Rachel loved this. It was a sunny morning, check out the backlight!
We also took away the “kaya roll” priced at RM 12 (US 3.30). I bought 2 rolls, 1 for my parents and 1 for my in laws.
This was the owner manning the counter.
The bill / cheque came to RM 46.40 (US 13.50) plus the take away.
Overall, the food was good and the price was slightly expensive. Being 82 years old and staying strong, Yut Kee is a must visit place in Kuala Lumpur. Finally, we tried their famous roast pork, what a relief!
