Yat Lai Restaurant: Yat Lai Restaurant

Yat Lai is the most well-known restaurant in Kuala Kangsar... Ask any current student or ex-student of the Malay College Kuala Kangsar (MCKK) and the restaurant will bring back fond memories... Yat Lai is the meeting place of MCKK students during their schooldays where they can have coffee and buns (or pau)... Yat Lai is located at an old 2-storey corner shophouse right in the middle of town...

Favorite Dish: As mentioned, Yat Lai is synonymous with pau... The most sought after KK pau is sold here... The pau are halal and the pau fillings included beef, chicken, kaya (coconut jam) and red bean... They are hand-made and only available from 2.00pm... They are usually sold off before its closing time of 6.00pm... You can certainly taste its pau during royal celebrations and/or open house as the Sultan will order them in bulk... Besides pau, the restaurant also have chicken chop, fried noodles and fried rice among others... On our first visit to Yat Lai for coffee at about 12.00noon, we decided to buy some pau and we were told that the day's stock has been ordered by a customer and hence it is sold out for the day (even before it is being baked!!!)

Comparison: about average

Directions: The restaurant is on the main road of Kuala Kangsar... It is to be noted that its small inconspicious signboard is well worn out and not noticeable unless with great attention while searching for the restaurant...

Price: less than US$10
