Kedai Makanan Yut Kee

There’s nothing to beat a Sunday visit to one of KL’s old-style kopitiams (coffee shops) such as the renowned Kedia Makanan Yut Kee on Jalan Dang Wangi. Take in the local atmosphere as you dine on traditional staples such as noodles, fried rice, curries, french toast and that curious holdover from colonial days, ‘chop’. Chicken chop, lamb chop, beef chop, pork chop, fish chop – this plate of pan-fried protein doused with a thick gravy and served with potatoes, peas, and carrots, is one of Yut Kee’s most popular items.

The area also has some interesting old shophouses some of which have been renovated into offices, others like this just left to ruin as the modern KL grows up around them.

You can also still see some traditional old Malay style houses down close to the river.

Cap Square is a new development in this area comprising up-scale apartment residences and a new shopping centre with restaurants.
