Yut Kee Restaurant, Jalan Dang Wangi, Kuala Lumpur

Yut Kee has been an old favourite for breakfast, and last Saturday, we were there again. It's a quaint old kopitiam (established in 1928) serving all types of Chinese and Western dishes, as you can see from their extensive menu board.....

We had chicken chop (Hainanese style). The boneless chicken whole-leg was covered in eggy batter and deep fried. The gravy comes with potatoes, peas and onions....I like to add lots of Lea & Perrins sauce (the restaurant provides) on the chicken before eating, gives it an extra ooomph. The chicken chop costs RM7.00 per plate.

The other dish we ordered was roti babi, which is a traditional nyonya snack. The filling is pork (of course) and slivers of crab meat, stir fried before being stuffed into the bread. The entire package is then dipped into egg and deep fried. We enjoyed this tasty treat with extra sprinkles of Lea & Perrins sauce and a dollop of tomato sauce. The roti babi costs RM7.00 as well.

2 soft-boiled eggs at RM2.00, topped with white pepper and soy sauce. Free-range eggs were used, tasted creamier than the usual farmed-eggs.

Business is brisk on weekends, and there's usually a bit of a wait for tables. The restaurant is closed on Mondays.
