Always full

There is a lot of type of local food here. And everything there is worth trying. Do go early, but it is always full and you need to queue for a table regardless of time

One of the best Ka Ciam Ma Chicken I could taste in Kuching is at Yeow Kee Kopitiam 2! There are two choices, eating with mee-suah noodle or rice. Ka Ciam Ma is a herb of a distinct taste, supposedly to be heaty by Chinese belief, a favourite for mothers on confinement. No harm eating, even if you are not... More

Extremely tasty foods like din sum (especially the siu Mai), bee hives cake, and dumplings. Although the place is always pack, but you can get a seat easily by reaching the place by 7am. Foods are cheap and reasonable, same goes to the portion.

Been here a couple of times for breakfast. would normally order Kueh Chap and Dim Sum. Dim Sum is quite okay. The Kueh Chap is really a must try dish. The Kueh Chap looks clean and delicious too. This a normal coffeeshop setup. They sell many local snacks for breakfast and teatime, like pulut panggang, curry puff and so on.

The location given by Google Map wasn't very accurate and we have to take a second trial to locate this coffee shop. We walked around the 'Commercial Centre' (it's actually rows of shophouses) and finally we found this shop (it is a corner shop, occupying the space of 2 shops). The lady who served us our teh C peng and... More

I am not sure whats the hype was about pertaining to this coffee shop. The praises that was showered by my colleagues was a sad reflection for me. The various food served at this place was just average to the point that I commented to my friends that I had tasted better "laksa" and "kolo mee" in Kuching. So if... More

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.
