We’ve been meaning to give this restaurant
a long while now. We read about the tantalizing dishes served here and our
interest was piqued. However, the major downside to this restaurant was the
fact that it was located in the very busy are of Pandan Jaya, and we absolutely
abhor traffic jams, especially on a weekend. It was for this fact that we kept
putting off visiting YE Traditional Dumplings.

Today however, we threw caution to the wind
and braved the snarling, crawling traffic to get here. Soon as we arrived the
first thing that struck us was the fact that the signboard absolutely
overwhelmed the rather diminutive establishment.
|a feast for the eyes|
|the house specialty|
|only the air cond looks out of place|
|private dining, anyone?|
|this took the cake!|
Walking into the place, we were immediately
taken in with the décor and was impressed with the effort taken to make it look
like we stepped back into the past and were dined in an eatery that would have
been popular a century ago. The Pipa on the wall really took the cake!
|Cat translated this to me|
Apart from this the numerous articles and
press paraphernalia bore testament to the excellent dishes we were about to
have. After a glance through the extensive menu, Cat settled on the Roasted
Pork Vege (sic) 1Chang and Nyonya 1Chang; Brendan tried
both the 2Wantan Noodles and Fried Chicken Wings while I ordered the
Steamed Drumstick with Nu Er Hong and Rice.
Cantonese noodle dish usually served in a hot broth, garnished with leafy
vegetables, and wantan (a Cantonese word for dumpling)
|Cat ordered both rice dumplings|
|Cat's roasted pork vege chang|
|and her nyonya chang|
|Brendan ordered the wantan noodles|
|and had no complaints|
|and he added this as well|
|just as finger-licking|
|I ordered this|
|but the heavens decided that I needed the braised pork feet!|
|sheepishly starting without me|
Apparently there was a mix-up in orders and
I was eventually served the Braised Pork Feet with Rice instead, not that I was
complaining since this dish was excellent! Forgive us for sounding a little
repetitive but YE Traditional Dumplings deserves every single bit of accolade
received. So much so that Cat even ordered a couple more of the tasty Nyonya
Chang to take home.
And the damage? We are a little bashful to
say that this particular meal does not qualify for the moniker of the everyday
food for the everyday person, but having said that we are firm in the belief
that it was well worth every sen paid. Would we come here again? Bearing in
mind Cat’s love of Chang, there is a distinct possibility that we would be
coming back a little too often!
