Yeow Kee is a breakfast hotspot for the locals. There were several cuisines served mainly Chinese cuisines such as lakes, mee sua, kampua, dim sum, Kuih, penang special food, wantan, kaya toast and many other more. The drinks were cheap too. It would be crowded during the "peak hours" but it's worth a try and a great place to enjoy... More

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

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