Yap Kee ( 叶记),Klang- Banana leaf rice

If we think to take banana leaf rice, we will first think of Yap Kee, Klang. This shop is very popular to local especially older generation and it has been there easily for 20-30 years !! This shop really truly reflect One Malaysia spirit, Chinese taukeh (owner), Indian cook and customers are Malay, Chinese, and Indian.

-Then followed by white rice.

-You can choose to top up with fried fish with curry powder (sorry for the poor quality of photo, too many peoples look at me when i taking photo, I'm too shy, so loose control of the camera setting, hehehe..)

-Or to have a very nice piece of fried chicken with curry powder.

They also have very nice mutton curry, we didn't order this time.

I don't have the exact address of this shop, the shop is located opposite the famous under the bridge bak kut teh, Seng Huat Bak kut Teh. And they only operate during lunch time.
