The Overview

Occupying the same corner in downtown Kuala Lumpur since the 1920's, this kopitiam is legendary for its coffee, charcoal-grilled toast and kaya. Tables watched over by a wall-mounted portrait of its Hainanese founder (whose son and grandson now run the place) sport bottles of Lee & Perrins and soy sauce. The former are meant to season chops (lamb, pork or chicken, served with roast potatoes, peas and carrots) and roti babi, deep-fried toast filled with melting pulled pork and onions; the latter to spike solidly Chinese dishes like congee, fried rice and beef noodles. If you can be here on Friday or Sunday at noon, do: Yut Kee recently debuted a wondrous pistachio and sage-filled rolled pork roast that invariably sells out within 30 minutes of being pulled from the oven.
