A New Makan Place


This restaurant, Restoran Yok Tho Hing@Damansara Uptown, is not exactly new. It has been around for ages, just that my partner and I have never dined there before.

It is along same row as Village Park.

As for me, heh..heh... I used to come to this place often for their soya sauce chicken which I thought was really good. They also sell char siew and siew yoke

Let me share a story with you. One evening, I was very hungry and the first thing that came to my mind was the awesome soya sauce chicken. So I walked over to the shop and ordered quarter chicken (leg portion) with rice. 

Since I was so hungry, I could not resist adding on a portion of siew yoke and char siew. The auntie who was serving me asked if I could finish so much food. So I told her that the food is not for me but for my brother who is a big-sized six footer wahahaha!!! The auntie nodded in understanding. I told my brother this story and being a good sport, he laughed.

I have since stopped buying the chicken because the price kept going up.



I noted that this restaurant also serves individual set lunches at quite an attractive price.



They also cater for group set lunches.


This restaurant is a down to earth no frills eatery and you will find that the ambiance is very coffee shop-like. That's downstairs, I don't know what it is like upstairs.


I am not too concerned about the aesthetics, what's important is the food. The menu is extensive enough to give you adequate choices for a nice meal. 


I love having raw garlic with cili padi and soya sauce as a condiment to go with my food. But the last couple of times when I ate garlic, my partner complained about my breath. But that evening, he took some garlic too, so I joined in. Get smelly together.


We ordered the Chinese Style Pork Chops which was delicious.....


.... Salted Chicken in Wine.....


.... Stir Fried Sweet Potato Leaves and ....


.... Four Variety Vegetables (non-spicy for my partner's sake).


I did not have rice, so my partner ate two portions.


We enjoyed our dinner and we will be back. This dinner cost  RM76+ which is all right.

  2. I have also passed this 'coffee shop' many times but didn't go inside yet. My wife is now happy when I told her that I will not eat mouthfuls of garlic again as it made my whole body smells even after i flushed my mouth & gargled my throat with buckets of listerine. The smell is still there inside the car and bedroom. Sigh! Bye bye garlic.

  3. Pork chop looks good. I had the 4 variety veg - I think they call it Four Heavenly Kings the other day but turned out to be only 3. Fried with sambal belacan, very nice...but the photos turned out blur. Can't share it in my blogpost coming soon.

  10. Looks like your partner is also quite a big-eater (if it's food he likes). 4 dishes for 2 is enough to feed a family of 2 adults + 2 children since the chicken looks like half a chicken....wuahahahaha! ;D
