Yut Kee @ Jalan Dang Wangi

This place needs no introduction as you guys all know its famous for their Hainanese cuisine..set in a very run down corner shop..it retains the "feel" for the early 1960s.. imagine your grandfathers and grandmothers sipping on kopi o munching on a piece of kaya toast along with some half boiled eggs..yes despite the long queue going in and the packed crowd..it still oozes that kind of charm when you step in.. For those clueless people..this place is just before the Jalan Dang Wangi police station and the street after Heritage Row..As the police station is so nearby..park along the yellow line at your own risk! I got my first saman here and i will remember forever dearly..

There are famous for a few items..to me its all their "babi" items..no offence to my halal readers..but thats exactly what this is called.. Roti Babi.. Bread with a filing of pork and also lap cheong..deep fried with a thin batter of egg..this is very lovely as a side dish..

This baby is probably their signature dish, The Hainan Pork Chop..gravy is generously served all over two pieces of pork chops..served alone with some potato wedges, onions, tomatoes and peas.. this is so lovely that i can never have the heart to order the chicken or the beef version..

They do serve plenty of other "tai chow" items with a Hainan touch to it.. and they also serve a decent Ngau Lam Mee..for the light eaters..the roti bakar and organic half boil eggs is a great tea break as well.. Lovely place albeit the very busy crowd.. Also on your way to the counter if stomach space allows, their swiss rolls is pretty decent as well..A very decent 8.5 out of 10..

I am starting to feel sick..Woke up this morning with one of the worst sore throats i ever had..Going to bed soon..Zzzzz...
