Banana Leaf Rice at Kopi Tiam Yap Kee

This is a unique business model seen in Klang where an Indian banana leaf rice operating in a Chinese Coffee shop for more than 70 years, it is now managed by the third generation and the banana leaf rice is still as popular. You could see Malay, Chinese and Indians eating together in this coffee shop and that is the true spirit of wonderful Malaysia.

It was a Sunday afternoon we could not have any mutton curry but only chicken curry, deep fried chicken and fish . Maybe the mutton curry has already sold out or probably it had limited choices for the day. Well one can not expect for a wide spread of dishes at in Yap Kee and it has been that way for a long time.

I enjoyed digging the food with my fingers even though I have just had Bak Kut Teh an hour or two ago, the fried fish was awesome. It is a typical Indian rice with papadam and standard veggie on the green banana leaf.
I love staying in Malaysia you can get to eat all kind of food from all kind of ethnicity, we can talk about food the whole day through without getting bored with it. If you feel like having a banana leaf meal well this place is a good choice indeed.
