Warning: Tidak Ditanggung Halal
On the morning before gathering in front of Heritage House for the bus to Singapore for the Nuffnang AP Blog Awards. I purposely went there earlier so that I can have breakfast in Yut Kee. Reached there by cab at 6.45 am, and it's not open yet. Then, Chris and Christine saw me and asked me to join them in Christine's dad's car. Took a round trip and came back to where they picked me up lol. Christine's dad told us that Yut Kee opens only at 7am.
Yut Kee coffee shop is older than my father. It started in 1928, already 81 years. The third generation is helping out in the business now. Famous for their authentic Hainanmese style coffee shop food such as pork chop, roti babi, kaya roll, half boiled egg and kopi.
I think the furniture there is older than me but still very sturdy.
We were like the 2nd group of customer to went in and when we're inside, they were not even ready yet to take orders. Waited for about 15 minutes only then the waiter starts to take our order. The couple had breakfast already, so they only ordered drink.
The new and the old, quite a rare scene to be found in KL.
This is my second time to Yut Kee. I tried Roti Babi before, so this time I ordered Pork Chop as my breakfast. It's very meaty and not like some other pork chop in other coffee shop that only gives a very thin layer of pork. The worchester sauce tasted just right not too salty. Given the pork chop just the right juiciness.
I wash it down with my favourite teh-C. Not the best teh-C but who's to complain. Maybe next time I should try their kopi.
I went to Yut Kee again last Friday because I need to go to Nuffnang office to collect the prizes that I wont from Project Alpha contest. You can read about my winning post here. I reached Yut Kee around 11.30 am, just in time for the salivating Auntie Margaret's roasted pork roll which is only available on Friday and Sunday from 11 am onwards. 11.30 a.m. is just nice, not that many crowd yet. I read that it'll be finished by 1 p.m. normally.
I saw the staff was just taking out 5 freshly roasted pork roll out to the table where the roasted pork was cut and serve to customer. Look at the skin, look to crispy and golden in colour.
I ordered two slabs of roasted pork. Cost me RM 10 a slab. Costly but worth it.
Of course, it won't be complete without the specially made apple sauce that goes with the roasted pork.
The roasted pork is done with the perfect proportion of 20% fat and 80% meat. That's my perfect proportion, not some universal standards okay?
Rating: 4.75/5 (0.25 less from perfect scoring is because the skin is not as crispy as I would have like it to be)
Two slabs of roasted pork is not enough for a brunch, so I order a set of half boiled eggs. Yut Kee using free range eggs? Why is the shell white? But the egg here is bigger than the egg in the coffee shop near my house.
Look at the orange coloured yolk. So beautiful, not to mention tasty too. Filled with the goodness of fresh egg.
A dash of white pepper and soy sauce. Gulp, gulp, gulp. Ah...satisfaction. Beats the Omega 3 eggs in Oldtown Kopitiam anytime.
I also bought two boxes of kaya rolls on the go. One box is for the Nuffies and one box to bring home.
Updates: I went to Yut Kee again with Hitomi on another day to try out their Hainamese Curry Chicken Rice, Roti Baby and French Toast with Kaya. Wah, their French Toast is better than Kim Gary's. I am too lazy to write the details on that. You all can read it from Hitomi's post.
