Wow for the pao

My father in law is from Kuala Kangsar and he knows the best places to get food there. This is at the top of his list because of the chicken chop and amazing pau. We got over 2 dozen pau to take back to KL to give to the other family members who couldn't make it up to Kangsar. Very... read more

My twin sister and I went to this old kopitiam for our lunch. We arrived at 1pm and there was no pau available yet. We just order chicken chop and roti bakar to dip into chicken chop gravy. When chicken chop arrived at our table, I just wow because they are not stingy when they pour the gravy. It looks... More

Yut Loy or Yat Lai is the famous coffee shop in Kuala Kangsar especially for its ‘always sold out’ ‘pau’. It serves other foods too like chicken chop, egg on toast, omelet on toast, fried noodles, fried rice, vegetable rice, etc but Yut Loy is always famous for its ‘pau’. The ‘pau’s is ready for sale at 2.30 pm and... More

Went on a weekday and was told that the pau wd only be available after 2.30 pm and only if there were any remnants after existing orders were fulfilled. So no guarantees that you wd get a pau on the spot. Also for a hainanese coffee shop, the chicken chop was pricey at RM17 bucks. Opportunistic pricing perhaps?

The top item on the menu was definitely THE pau. The pau was light and fluffy, with delightful fillings inside. In comparing with other version of pau where one can easily get it is THE 'inti' or the fillings. Most of ordinary pau will have limited amount of filling but not Yut Loy's as theirs is sufficiently for an adult.... More

Was on a working trip to Kuala Kangsar recently. After reading reviews on Tripadvisor, decided to have the chicken chop for our lunch. The Yut Loy coffeeshop is situated right in the middle of Kuala Kangsar town. It serves chicken chop, fried noodles, steamed bread and others typical in a coffeeshop. It is an old building, non air-cond, with some... More

We ordered the 1 chicken chop, 4 steak, 1 meehoon hailam, 2 mee hailam, 1 wantai mee, and 3sets roti steam. And an average of 2 drinks each. The bill was rm139.00. The best part was when we ordered the pau. The owner said they sold out. The gentleman on the next table heard our disappointment and sent us a... More

Be patient and you will be rewards. THE BEST PAU in all of Malaysia. Full stop. And they only make 300 each day which is ready by about 2pm and finishes by 3pm if you are lucky - that is the palace hasn't tapau the entire batch.
