Yut Kee

Time Out Kuala Lumpur - - Food -

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.
