Mee Rebus @ Stalls behind Yut Kee, Jalan Kamunting, Kuala Lumpur



Recently, I have been exploring the stalls right behind Yut Kee Restaurant and next to Bodhi Tree Restaurant after reading about them on Babe in the City - KL's blog. Although my main aim was to try her recommended favourites which I will blog about next week, during one of my visits there, I noticed quite a few people ordering the Mee Rebus. The place is quite famous as it's been featured in New Straits Times and the monthly KL Lifestyle magazine.



One day, I saw one of the customers eating this which looked interesting - Mee Rebus campur Rojak Sotong (RM3.50) hence I decided to give it a try. Although the bowl comes with lots more items versus Rosli Mee Rebus with one hard boiled egg, brown sotong, slices of tofu, potato chunks and chopped green chillies, the gravy was not so flavourful. I suspect their beef stock is not so robust and the colour of the gravy looks like there's more sweet potatoes here. However it makes really nice comfort food that you can slurp down.



Something interesting I also noticed when I dined here - the pigeons will precariously perch on the wall of Yut Kee at the side as there's these small little iron rods sticking out. I guess they're just looking for a place to chill before it's feeding time.

Just managed to locate & try Rosli Mee Rebus. Flavourful but really lacked in ingredients/toppings. Kept thinking it can be enhanced with fried fritters, 'taukua' and maybe bits of meats. This has squid? A must try for me then.

this mee rebus is mamak style dats why it has fritters, taukua and boiled potatoes. anyway its no longer nice cos the original owner sold off the business to current owner and had gone back India. i know cos i've been eating here since i was a kid :p

patrick - CKT will be on next wk.

tummythoz - I think he compromised on the toppings vs his gravy so if you want a really shiok mee rebus, have to ta pau his and add ingredients from another stall?

babe kl - yup, mamak style differenet from Rosli's style. It says they're two brothers running the stall but whatever it is, very popular as that stall is the only one with lots of business.

claude - think the only way is to make another trip to KL and let us take u around?

jackson - better write a list of things you have not tried and start tasting them or else you'll be missing out in life.

intan - thxs! hope you manage to eat better with a food guide.
