Jalan Besar hardly lacks good food options after dark, and Yong Kee is no exception. Much of the buzz around this corner coffeeshop centres on its crispy beehoon ($6-$18) – rice noodles flattened into a cake and seared brown on one side – which harks of the slightly charred noodles cooked up across the Causeway.
Other specialties served at the old-school kopitiam that fills its air with Channel 8 broadcasts include juicy battered prawns with salad cream ($25) served with fruit in a cored-out honeydew, claypot egg tofu ($10-$15), and mess of salt and Chinese herb-steamed chicken leg parts ($14) – a dish only your mother would order for its perceived health benefits.
