Restoran Yut Kee, Kuala Lumpur…borderline Discovery Channel good. Indulge.

A kopitiam is a traditional “coffee shop” in Malaysia and Singapore. The hainanese community is well-known to run or own kopitiams. There’s the Starbucks and Coffee Beans of this world but kopitiam is the kind of place where you find yourself a cheap honest-to-goodness cuppa joe.

Yut Kee has been serving local-style brew and traditional Hainanese fare since 1928. Roti Babi (literally translated: pork bread) could be considered a savory french toast stuffed with pulled pork. It is crazy good. That’s why you’re here. Indulge. As for the kaya toast, the “kaya” (coconut jam) here was one of the best I’d ever had. The taste is one you won’t soon forget: luscious, even creamy, delivering seriously potent flavour….enough to make my mouth water. I could have finished the jar straight up spoon-to-mouth.

Short story shorter, the roti babi and kaya toast are borderline Discovery Channel good. This is the true truth as I say it as it is…
