Yik Mun

Time Out Kuala Lumpur - - Food trippin’ -

A ha­lal cof­fee shop that’s al­most al­ways full of reg­u­lars, Yik Mun has been serv­ing hun­gry Tan­jung Malim folks since 1926. Their spread of Chi­nese-Mus­lim food is what peo­ple come here for, es­pe­cially dur­ing break­fast and lunch. Lo­cated near the Tan­jung Malim exit along the North-South Ex­press­way, mo­torists fre­quently make de­tours here to sam­ple their ex­ten­sive of­fer­ings of Hainanese fare. How­ever, the real crowd-puller is their ha­lal baos (RM2.40 each). They’re avail­able in four va­ri­eties – kaya, red bean, beef and curry chicken – and if we had to pick just one, we’d go for the curry chicken bao, which has a dry spicy chicken curry fill­ing that’s bal­anced out by the soft bao bun. Fresh batches of baos are con­stantly rolling out the kitchen and into the steam­ers out front, so you never leave empty-handed.
