BREAKFAST @ YEOW KEE KOPITIAM, JALAN KAMPASS, KUCHING


This block, collectively known as 101, has seen a hive of activities, where food is concerned, both day and night; well, some operate by day, while others along the 101 corridor only come out of the slumber after dusk. This particular coffee shop at the end of the commercial block does both, but on a different term - all-in-one coffee shop by day, and grilled western fare at night. I seldom venture into this part of the neighbourhood for breakfast, had it not been for my cousin, who wants to pay her niece a visit at her work place.


For a place that doesn't offer anything out of the ordinary, this place is packing them in on a working weekday; it seems everyone is on a working breakfast these days. There are Kolo Mee, Laksa, Foochow Kampua and the likes , Lui Chai, Penang Fried Koay Teow, Foochow Zi-Char and Tien Mien Hu.

The centre piece of the place is its roti bakar, done over charcoal at the centre of the shop. And there are Nonya Kuehs to be had as well, and popiahs too! So whatever your fancy, it seems to have it. But whether A-G'am, Bay-G'am is another matter. But can so many people be wrong, unless they are lemmings!

The laksa is not bad. Don't think they have kueh chap anymore do they ? My kids like the noodles, and of course the kaya toast which I told them I could make at home at 1/4 of the price but they still insist on having it here.

kids will be kids... having it toasted over charcoal is not the same as coming out of the toaster. my dad would say: Kai Lui Too Ho!

i would be running a kueh chap store if i did. at its simplest, it's just tau-eu-bak with all the spare parts thrown in, with a hint of star anise, cumin and clove, cinnamon.

ABOUT THIS BLOG

As the name implies, it's all about nothing! Kongkaying is like grasping in the air - more like hot air with occasional fartulence. Hopefully, something aromatic will come out of it! If not...

May the Farce be With You!
