Historical Yut Kee

Went for dinner at Pasta Zanmai, Midvalley just now with Kingston and Cindy.

More photos will be up in August.

3 months ago, on the 28th March, I went for lunch with mum at this super old kopitiam called Yut Kee.

I heard that this place has been around for generations… but not sure how long.

The ambiance portrays the lifestyle of the olden days when people were to sit at the coffee shop sipping coffee and reading newspapers. (but seems like they added an LCD TV as you can see in the photo)

Me lo.. who else. lol

I ordered one of their signature dish, the Hainanese Chicken Chop. Tasted ok lah.. kinda expensive for that small piece of chicken… it was around RM9.. if I remember correctly.

Mum ordered this. According to her, it was very ‘homecooked’ style.

We then left the kopitiam and I went to KL Design Week expo at Capsquare. Photos will be up tomorrow 😀

    my mother claims that my grandfather used to visit that shop when he was younger. it was already a landmark by the time she was born. so…around 3-4 generations?

    i cannot believe you didn’t have their french toast and roti babi! i’m sure you didn’t buy their (quite expensive) butter cake and kaya roll either. fantastic stuff. my aunt used to buy those back and we’d have them for tea.

    make sure you visit again!
