Yut Kee, Jalan Dang Wangi

Last Saturday, rif and I decided to have lunch at Yut Kee. It’s been almost a year since I last ate here.I had kopi-ais (RM1.10) and rif ordered barli ais (RM1.20). 

Chicken Chop (RM 7)

My Chicken Chop was as good as I remembered it to be. The chicken was fried until crispy with its juiciness retained inside. The gravy that came with it was a tad too diluted. I prefer it thicker and more tomato-ey. Nevertheless, I enjoyed mopping my potato wedges in the gravy.

Pork Chop (RM 8)

rif’s Pork Chop was also not bad. Two pieces of fried pork chop topped with the same gravy as the chicken chop. We found the pork slightly on the dry side. I like my chicken chop better. :)  

Belacan Fried Rice (RM 6)

I was still feeling a bit peckish so rif ordered the Belacan Fried Rice for us to share. It was absolutely delicious! I loved the wok hei flavour in the rice, which was beautifully fried with fish cakes, eggs, beansprouts and carrots topped with freshly chopped spring onions. The sambal that came with it was L-E-T-H-A-L. I completely underestimated it and ate a spoonful of it with a small spoon of rice.

It was spicy like hell. So spicy that I turned bright red and started sweating…I never turn red or sweat…even when I eat spoonfuls of chili padi. rif had a good laugh for 5 minutes before ordering some iced chinese tea for me. 0_0

Kaya Swiss Roll (RM 0.75)

Marble Cake (RM 0.85)

We were too full and I, too numb from the sambal to eat their kaya swiss roll and marble cake. The bill was RM 24.50 including 5% tax. I’ll definitely order the belacan fried rice again but will go easy on the sambal. :)


Ambiance: 3/10 (quite hot)
Food: 8/10
Price: 7/10 (approx. RM 10 per person)
Verdict: Good food and reasonable pricing

    I had mixed ideas on their swiss roll.. To me, the texure was a little too hard and dry.. And the kaya is missing the creaminess due to lacked of eggs and pandan.. They did enjoy their publicity in the old days but too bad, their QC suffered from cost savings.

    the food at Yut Kee is severely overrated – the only good thing is the old coffeeshop ambiance. How can Time Out nominate this place as one of the best in Malaysia just tells how poor are the tastebuds of many Malaysians
