Although Yut Kee has moved from its original Jalan Dang Wangi premise to its current location along Jalan Kemunting, this beloved coffee shop still rolls out the same food as it did back in 1928. Now run by father-andson team Jack and Mervyn Lee, Yut Kee is busier than ever – you’d regularly find people queuing up waiting for Mervyn to yell out their names. The classic kopitiam marble tables, wooden chairs and mosaic-tiled floor lend to the overall nostalgic vibe about the place. Among its extensive list of rice, noodle and side dishes, the standout items here are the Hainanese chicken chop, roti babi, roast pork belly and Hailam mee. End your meal with a slice of their famous kaya Swiss roll or marble cake – but be quick as they sell out fast.
Jalan Kamunting, Chow Kit, KL (03 2698 8108/Facebook: Yut Kee Jalan Kamunting). Tue-Sun, 7.30am-4.30pm.
