Roti Babi At Last!

You know how some people have a list of things to before they die? On mine was "try roti babi". It was just one of those things I took for granted because, well, its so nearby and it will always be there right? Kind of like my list of places to visit in Malaysia, namely Taman Negara and Sipadan. Anyway last Sunday, Cuz and I resumed our Cousin's Day after a long absence. Our visit to Bisou was thwarted by the fact that they had changed their opening times. They are now closed on Sundays and open on Mondays. It was a blessing in disguise as I suddenly remembered Yut Kee! It was crowded as expected with, strangely enough, a lot of people who looked like they just went jogging. Is there a jogging path around the area that I am not aware of? Is this another thing I need to add to my list? Yut Kee is a charming coffee shop. Faded photographs adorn weathered walls and furniture older than my parents still stand proudly among more recent purchases.

I ordered the roti babi while Cuz ordered hoi lam mai fun. She was a little disappointed when it arrived as it was not drowning in chup as she expected. Still, it was tasty. Really tasty if you know what I mean. It couldn't have been that bad because I wasn't all that thirsty after. I love mee hoon anyway. I haven't met a plate of mee hoon I didn't like. My roti babi arrived swiftly. It was lightly fried (yea who am I kidding?!) and the surface was golden and crisp. It was not oily at all which was surprising. It was interesting. There were slivers of pork, strips of Chinese sausage and even the odd piece of crab meat. Crab and pork is a wonderful combination! Even better with a dash of worcestershire! As much as I enjoyed it, its not something I see myself eating very often. Theres just something rather it that suggests "HEART ATTACK"! Perhaps thats why people jog before they eat. Ahhhh....
