Good Old Yut Kee Restaurant, Jalan Dang Wangi, Kuala Lumpur

I guess everyone knows about this restaurant which has been operating since 1928. Yut Kee is probably one of the oldest Hainanese restaurants in Kuala Lumpur that still survive up to this day. The dishes that they serve ranges from local noodles like Hokkien fried bihun to semi western fares such has Hainanese pork chop. They also offer other dishes like roti babi, kaya toast, beef stew, rolled pork roast, beef noodles, fried misua, belachan fried rice, Hainanese Chicken Chop, Lam Mee, Lamb chop, Fried Hokkien mee and many more which I could not remember. The setting inside is nothing fancy but every time I walked into this restaurant, I felt like going back into the pre war era. They still have all the old furniture like tables with marble tops and old wooden antique counter. Recently, I went to Yut Kee with my buddy for lunch. He ordered Roti Babi (RM7.50) which is actually fried bread with pork fillings inside; while I ordered the Hainanese chicken chop (RM8.00). The chicken chop comes with some gravy and condiments like potatoes. The meals here might look simple but they are quite delicious. I wash down the chicken chop with a good hot cup of coffee (RM1.30). Address and telephone number Kedai Makanan Yut Kee 35, Jln Dang Wangi 50100 Kuala Lumpur Tel: 03 26988108 Open daily (8 am – 5 pm) & closed on Mondays Latitude 3.156157 Longitude 101.700203 Map to Yut Kee Restaurant

Pete, I have heard of this well-known kopitiam. My dad used to buy delicious egg-roll cakes from there. I have heard about the chicken chop. I may have eaten there before...but can't remember.

Hmm..I must try out the food one day.

Oh..I have no idea of this restaurant. Only know one restaurant (forgot the name) opposite KL Sentral serves very delicious Hainanese Chicken Chop and 'mun fan'. Did not go there for so long already. Miss the food there.
