Restoran Yong Xin @ JB

Check out this Kway Teow shop if you happen to be in the area near Tun Aminah. They are quite popular with the Abalone Kway Teow Soup (鲍鱼粿条汤). Finally got a table in their shop and was given their hard cover menu. I thought it had been so long since I last came here as the menu was not that "grand" as far I had recalled.

Hard Cover Menu

Just like any typical Malaysia's coffeeshop, they were installed with wrought iron grills for the shop house and some chinese paintings hanging on the wall.

No. 143, the shop house.

The drinks we ordered to half fill our stomach while waiting for our breakfast. The longan drink was special to me as it was sweet tasting (but of course not diabetic sweet) with winter melon stripes as well as red dates while Teh O Ice Limau was rather standard.

Having ordered the combo set for 2 (两人套餐) which comes with a bowl of soup consisting Abalone, Asparagus, Pacific Clams, fish maw, oyster, sliced pork, minced pork, pork liver, parang fishball and fishball with 2 bowls of noodles at our choice.

Combo for 2 - RM 20
Ingredients were fresh, especially the unscaled prawns, see the freshness from its orange red color? A good mix of ingredients had each contributed the sweetness to the soup.


Ingredients was that much such that every spoon dig into the soup would at least have some of them scooped out. The pork bone soup was naturally sweet and clear in color,just like the way a Teochew Kway Teow soup should be.

Ingredients, Ingredients!

If you ever wonder where is the abalone for the noodles, ta-da! It's here! There are 4 big slices in the bowl. Just stir through the ingredients and I'm sure you can find them. Chewy and sweet from the canned food, quite popular among the Malaysians.

What I like about Malaysia's Yellow Mee is that they do not have the stinky "ki" smell. These noodles were in faint yellow and tasted great with the sweet black sauce coated.

Besides their "Si Dao" fish (西刀鱼), this is a good alternative to go for. The alluring white cripsy outlook with Otah encased was a perfect choice.

Cripsy Otah 脆皮乌打- RM 3.80

As you sink your teeth in, you can hear the cracking bites produced by these flaky and thin crust. The Otah which was wrapped within was in bright orange. What a great combination. Simply love the crunch with the tasty Otah!

Restoran Yong Xin, well-known among the eateries of JB served a warming and comfort food us, especially if you are a Teochew, their bowls of savoury soup will definitely hit you at the right spot.
