Kuala Lumpur Eats - Tasting History

Yut Kee, a Hainanese family coffeeshop first started in the 1920s and handed down the generations (in fact - the current owner bears a striking resemblance to his father pictured above). Choose from a wide range of cooked dishes or simply chill out over a traditonal coffee with charcoal toasted bread served with home made kaya.

I have a thing for Hainanese coffeeshops - the nostalgia, history, marble table tops, wooden chairs, retro tiles... everything about these establishments gives you a sense of calm. The fact that they have stood the test of time and have served up caffeine and sustenance to generations before me is very humbling because you realise that more than just a cup of coffee with toast... you're tasting history.
