Ever since I started food blogging, my friends and colleagues like to ask me for recommendations of food places to visit. If we have a gathering, it seems to be my responsibility now to think of a suitable venue too lol. Much as I like to share my suggestions, I also love it when they
Eschewing all the trappings of fancy flavors and varieties, this is bread at its most basic form but to me, it is the best form. The loaf was so extremely pillowy soft and fluffy that if I use an extra ounce of strength more to hold it, I would have threaten to flatten it between my fingers. The buns were served warm with a well toasted crust and given a spread of peanut butter or the classic combination of dark kaya (coconut jam) and butter. We ordered both and they were equally awesome. I'm usually quite indifferent to bread but that was one of the rare times I enjoyed it that much. Best savoured with a cup of coffee or milk tea.
It being dinner time and also supposed to be my friend's birthday meal, we also order their signature Special Beancurd and Coffee Flavour Pork Ribs, as well as perennial zhi char favourites like Fu Yong Omelette and Sambal Kang Kong to go along with white steamed rice. While all the items were competently executed, none were exactly as memorable as the Claypot Ee Mian. It was such a simple yet delightful pot of noodles! Served piping hot with generous amount of seafood and a gorgeous raw egg which we stirred into the lip-smacking savory gravy, the ultimate taste enhancer were the Pork Lards! Yummy to the max!!! I wondered who was the genius who first made such wonderful use of the fats of pigs.
So that concluded my maiden visit to YY Kaifei Dian, it was a tummy happy one. Even though their service really sucks, I still wanna bring my BFF here to eat their soft buns and 'la kopi' lol. Simple pleasures of life. That's what I like.
