This is a popular traditional coffee shop (kopitiam in hokkien) in Kuching. It iss always filled with customer since early morning when open. Very crowded and seats are hard to come by. Usually have to wait beside someone to finish on a table to "book" a seat if you know what I mean. Unless you're lucky when groups of people... More

A buddy brought me here after our morning jog at Stutong Park and boy the Laksa was the best i tasted on my short trip to Kuching even better than the more famed kopitiam in town the name of which escapes me. The kolo mee is good too. And it is always packed so do go early.

We stumbled into this place not expecting much, but the food was really tasty (I had noodles) and prices were good. All very basic so don't expect to much but all in all a good dining experience.

Yeow Kee is one of the places that just ever stops buzzling with people. Food is aplenty and has great variety. Made up of many different hawker stalls, it is a great representation of the various food you can find in Kuching and Sarawak. My personal favourite is the foochow noodle "Chao Cai Mee" which is a clear based noodle... More

Get there early. It's ALWAYS busy, The wontons are especially nice, with a hint of cooking wine in them. They're good for their kuehs, toast with kaya (coconut jam) and a lot of other choices of local food. With the current construction work going on, traffic is a pain in the neck, but if you happen to be around there,... More

love the place. Food is good! Atmosphere is good! Loving the LAKSA and the hand made noodles. I come here to have my regular toast with kaya. Fresh kuih too. Just that people Just flood the place during Lunch time. It really shows How popular food is here.

This kopitiam located strategically within residential areas. However, limited car parks and seats have made me not listing this kopitiam as a breakfast place

a popular coffee shop in town, with people hovering around waiting for you to leave so they can sit at your table. some of them look like they want to shovel the last mouthful of noodles into your mouth for you. lots of stalls but nothing spectacular. I really don't get the attraction, as there are lots of other similar... More

I always come here for their roti bakar or roti kahwin. The toast with butter and kaya are toasted with flaming charcoal to give it a nice smell. The Foochow Kampua Mee here is not bad as well. The drinks are very reasonable priced and the place is clean. The stir fried noodles, kueh teow and beehoon are great too!
