I stumbled upon this restaurant while I was on my way to get baking supplies from Bake With Yen. The first thing that caught my eye as I was driving past was the long waiting line, which to me usually is an indication of how good an eatery is because lets face it, if food sucks, long waiting lines are unlikely, right? I took note of it and told myself that I’d be dropping by soon to give Yi Feng a try.
Fast forward a week later, here I was back again and this time, I made sure to arrive before lunch time. I arrived around 11.15 am and lucky me there was still a table or two that was vacant.
To me, Yi Feng has a modern kopitiam feel, which I liked very much. It was bright, airy and open. Despite being fullhouse, there was no feeling of stuffyness. Customer service was good and food arrived quickly.
Rice with 2 combinations, RM 9.50
The 2 combinations being Honey BBQ/char siew and steamed/poached chicken. It tasted good. However, when it comes to char siew, we usually have our preferences, which more often than not, differs from one another. I prefer char siew with different textures – crispier edges with less fats and a sweeter coating. The one here was smooth all around with a 50/50 ratio of fat to meat, the Honey part though, that was missing. It was not honey glazed but you would be able to taste bits and pieces of it. While I was not that big a fan, my friend loved it. It was my dish but he ended up finishing it, lol.
As for the chicken, I’d most probably request for breast meat if possible next time. What I received this time was the leg/thigh piece and it was riddled with bones. Some pieces had more bones than meat. I was not a fan. Again, a matter of preference. I am ashamed to say that I haven’t yet master the art of eating a chicken clean. Especially with bones, it requires maneuvering skill I seem to lack, lol. Hence why I’ve always preferred breast meat. Tastewise, it was good.
Curry Laksa Noodle with 2 combination, RM 10.90
This was delicious. Oooo yum!! I loved everything about it. The curry was thick and flavorful. I slurped several spoonful of it on its own. The noodles were different – light and springy. I think it was mee hoon but thicker or was it thin wan tan noodles? I did not take note as I was busy ‘hantaming’.
The dish came with char siew, steamed chicken, pork skin, tau hu, long beans and brinjal. The combination of it all was simply delicious. I loved it.
Double butter Kaya Toast, RM 3.60
This I ordered for dessert. Something light and not too filling. It was just the way I liked it – crispy, dense bread with generous butter and lots of kaya. 😍😍
Would I head back here? Yes I would. I’d like to try the other dishes available here.
