Yut Kee KL Restaurants

Today I am going to go back in time and write about my foodie adventures in the back streets of Kuala Lumpur. Yut Kee enjoys quite a reputation with local crowds and has become more of a tradition with regular crowds that visit this interesting and very affordable everyday cafe. Located at a walking distance from Menara KL, Yut is managed by a second-generation owner. 

The recipes are simple and authentic and capture the rich mix of Chinese Malays flavours. Yut Kee is popular with office workers as the simple menu does not offer a very extended list o dishes. You can enjoy fried rice with clear soup and some light chicken dishes. 

A chicken schnitzel cooked in gravy and potatoes is an interesting dish which is quite popular at this establishment. I ordered beef soup in clear noodles which went quite well with the fried rice. 

Other popular dishes include roast pork, lum mee, chicken noodles (dry/soup), beef noodles (dry/beef), hailam mee, roti babi. 

The decor of the cafe is basic and functional. Yut Kee is a great place for lunch. 

On my way out from the cafe, I got into a conversation with the owner who was kind enough to offer me a coffee and house-made cake. I came to know about the interesting history of the cafe and changing trends of foodies in the town. I was lucky enough to get a recommendation on another interesting establishment Sek Yuen which claims to be one of the oldest Chinese restaurants in the Pudu area in Kuala Lumpur.
