An initial plan of having brunch here just before we begin our journey to Colmar Tropicale. This place was strongly recommended by Ashley. Ashley got to know about this place from her Boss. See….how the good stuff are passed around.
Somehow we got caught in the jam and only managed to reach there at around 12pm. A gentle reminder…this place is very crowded and be prepared to wait for your seat. If you are lucky, you can get your seat within 10 minutes. Though it is located in front of a busy road, getting a parking is not a big issue. Park behind its building. There’s an open air parking space *just pay lor….
An old coffee shop. Looks like a heritage shop too. I was told that this shop, Yut Kee was established since 1928. WOW! That was long! What is so good here that draws most of the crowd. The answer is PORK & Hainanese food. Which we hardly get one from the ordinary coffee shop.
While waiting….I saw this fresh, hot golden block laid on the chopping board. What is that? It looks like a block of ham which I usually see from the Supermarket. This is actually ‘Roast Pork’. And its served from 11.30am onwards. (available only on Friday to Sunday) A whole block is at price of RM140 (huh…terkejut saya)
Price of pork is getting expensive these days. Though this plate of 2 is not cheap but the taste was good le. Meat was stuffed with apricots, sage and pistachios to be roasted. Very crispy skin with tasty and tender meat. Me like that its not too dry or fat lor. .. Its served with apple sauce but I preferred to eat without the sauce.
**Though crowded, but the food arrived pretty quick**
French Toast served with homemade kaya. I felt that the bread is just normal but the kaya was good. The kaya looks ugly but taste nice lor.
This is a Hainanese Style Pork Chop. A signature dish here. 2 slices of pork chop along with mixed vegetables, onion and potato wedges covered with brown sauce. Not sure how they cooked the gravy..but the taste goes well with the juicy pork. Love the gravy…slurp slurp..
An egg batter bread sandwiched with shredded pork and onion. Some said with Chinese sausage and crabmeat. But I couldn’t taste it ler..
The golden brown bread with generous filling. Some said add few dash of Lea Perrin sauce for extra flavor. Isit?? Where’s the bottle of sauce?? Ahh..missed that. Anyway, I do feel that its good enough. Rather special to me.
Looks like Hokkien Mee…and don’t look presentable either. Surprisingly it taste good! Especially to eat the noodles with their sambal belacan. CAUTION! Its quite hot.
Hmm…this plate of char siew rice, nothing to shout about. So So only.
