I guess I got the heredity from my dad that I love having breakfast, I woke up early in the morning on a pleasant Saturday and drove down to KL just to have breakfast with KTV they all.
The hainanese kopitiam we went - Yut Kee, located at Jalan Dang Wangi, is a very traditional kopitiam exist before the Merdeka, and that's why some of my friends call it "Gu Dong Dim" - the antique shop. It is like a blast from the past once you step into this kopitiam, they are using all the ancient furniture - the round marble tables, the yellowish wall painting, the hard wooden chair, the old fashion food cabinet, the hand-written menu, the old potraits, the wooden staircase...
Travel back in time?
We arrived there before 9am, it was quite crowded but since it is still early for other city-dwellers, we still manage to get a table for 4 of us. We ordered roti babi, french toast, hainanese chicken chop, mee suah, marble cakes and half-boiled eggs!!
Roti Babi is the specialty of Yut Kee and a must-try item, my most favourites. It is a deep fried bread stuffed with minced pork, crab meats, onions and some other ingredients. It is crispy on the outer layer and tenderly soft inside it, very rich with fillings too. Don't forget to eat with the Worcestershire sauce, then you will really get the taste of hang fuk. ^__^..
We also had the Hainanese Chicken Chop, not bad too but it is forgetable, anyway, it is worth trying. However, the mee suah is just a so-so, I find it a bit too salty.
By the time we finished up our food, we intended to chit chat for a while just like other old folks, but we realized there is a long queue outside the kopitiam, thus we just leave the kopitiam and go back home..
Burp.. Opps, excuse me. :p
