    Gerai Simpang Lawis: Where The Locals Go To Eat

    by mizzzthanggg Written May 28, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    we did justice to the delectable spread

    Great little food court with different stalls selling all the local Malaysian fare, from satay and ikan bakar, rice dishes, noodle dishes, seafood etc. etc.

    The bill for our table of 15 people came up to just under RM400.. including steamed crabs, huge grilled fish, tom yam soup for all, satay as appetisers, fruits for dessert, fresh fruit juices and kopi kampung for the coffee aficionados!

    Favorite Dish: Ikan Masak 3 Rasa - literally Fish Cooked with 3 Tastes.. sweet, sour & spicy!! a blast for the senses.

    Apparently the kopi kampung (village coffee) is to-die-for as well!! Unfortunately, I'm not a coffee drinker :)

    the restaurant facade...
    2 more images

    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!!!)

    Tak Nak is an anti-smoking campaign, for what sir? Is for telling Malaysians not to smoking, to installed this big signboard in every little towns and big cities, so that peoples can see read, so that peoples think good and peoples will stop smoking, this is all Tak Nak about.

    At the back of Tak Nak is actually a bakery shop and a restaurant hotel, obviously you have more choices.

    The gate.: Excellent little cafe/restaurant with free wifi.

    by cachaseiro Written Jul 4, 2012
    Cafe The Gate in Kuala Kangsar.

    The gate is a real nice little place in Kuala Kangsar.
    It's more of a coffee house than a restaurant really, but they do serve hot food too and it's very good.
    I had some excellent sweet and sour chicken when i was there for instance.
    I was there a couple of times and mostly came there for thier excellent coffee and because they had a free witfif with a very fast connection.
    The place is small and cosy and the waiters and waitresses very friendly.
    They spoke little english, but did all they could to make me happy and i sure was very happy there.
    I had a chocolate cake there aswell on my second visit and that was brillinat too.

    The centre is within the Medan Selara Sg Perak which comprises of shopping and various food outlets... There is also a ferry to the other side of the wide river... Coupon parking is available...

    Favorite Dish: As the name implies, this centre is only for laksa and cendol... The cendol is good but the ABC is just ordinary...

    Hai Lam Building, Jalan Kota Lama Kiri
    33000  Kuala Kangsar
    Perak  Malaysia
    Telephone: 0125155045

    Favorite Dish: I remember going to this "Kopitiam" (coffee shop) as a young boy every sunday after church and my favourite dish was the dry Hakka Noodles with a thick mince pork gravy. You add some chilli sauce to the gravy and the dish is divine!
    The Beef Balls served in a clear soup was springy and spicy.

    Kat Kopitiam: Great western food dishes

    by Willettsworld Updated Aug 19, 2010

    This great little place is located along the main road that leads into the town centre from the Clock Tower. It's run by a really huge guy who's the chef and looks like he enjoys his food! They serve a lot of western food which is very tasty.
