Keep the Tradition Alive

I usually go to this traditional Hainanese coffee shop once a week for afternoon tea. Though single ladies are not commonly seen eating at this old coffee shop, I have been one of their regulars since my return to Taiping from my previous workplace. The owner and his staff know me just too well. Tarts are reserved, coffee is served in my favourite cup and saucer (special privilege)...... *wink

Yut Sun Coffee Shop

Roti Sayur @ RM4.50

Roti Sayur is a simple dish to prepare. There's hardly any secret lying behind the absolute success of this dish so you can try making it at home by following the 3 fuss free steps.
1. Toast a thickly sliced bread to golden brown.
2. Coarsely chop the mixture of vegetables (cabbage, carrot, and green peas). Stir fry the vegetable mixture with oyster sauce and thicken the gravy to the right consistency.
3. Pour the cooked vegetables and gravy over the toast and top with a sunny side up egg.

Due to the small portion of Roti Sayur which may not be adequate to last one till the next meal, diners are always seen rounding off their meals with the cakes and tarts in the glassy shelf.

  1. Pam, is the tarts as good as the kampong simee ones? :) the roti sayur looks unique.. never tasted one like this before..

    I haven't any choice in Taiping when it comes to tasty food so eating tarts that are not up to standard is the only way to curb my food craving.
