New Yew Sang Seafood Restaurant: Budget-friendly kopitiam with irresistible dishes & welcoming vibes

If you’re a kopitiam connoisseur, then you’re already well-acquainted with the intoxicating aroma of freshly brewed coffee wafting through the air, the symphony of sizzling woks, and the comforting hum of animated conversations. New Yew Sang Seafood Restaurant located in SS6, Petaling Jaya stands as a shining example of the enduring charm and culinary excellence found in these local treasures.

This corner lot koptiam was easy to locate as there were tents to accommodate the outdoor seating. Just down the row of shops, there’s another kopitiam, Nam Chuan Hainan Kopitiam, which I visited recently.

The atmosphere of this establishment exudes warmth and hospitality. The owners of each stall, affectionately referred to as aunties and uncles, wore friendly smiles, and a few of them were engaged in conversations with their customers.

To my surprise, at 10am in the morning, the kopitiam wasn’t overly crowded. Those who had gathered were relishing their breakfast while chatting with one another.

What I tried at New Yew Sang Seafood Restaurant

New Yew Sang - What I tried

I started my morning off with the Char Kuey Teow (RM8) with a fried egg (RM1)Upon initial inspection, the portion appeared rather modest. Nevertheless, I was eager to take my first bite, particularly with the enticing addition of the perfectly cooked fried egg.

Instantly, I could taste the smoky flavours of the noodles infused with wok hei. The combination of seafood, bean sprouts, and noodles created a harmonious blend of flavours, perfectly balanced and bursting with taste.

The fried egg was the main star of the dish, perfectly cooked with crispy edges and a lusciously runny yolk. I must admit that the fusion of the creamy egg yolk and the char kuey teow was an immediate sensation of pure delight in my taste buds.

New Yew Sang - Ying Yong

My dining partner ordered the Cantonese Ying Yong noodles (RM8.50). This dish is known for its unique combination of 2 types of noodles; a layer of soft kuey teow over a layer of hard bihun noodles. The noodles are drowned in hearty egg soup, which eventually softens the bihun noodles.

He shared that the kuey teow noodles were soft and springy, and when coupled with the crunch of the bihun, was nothing short of a match made in noodle heaven. The dish was garnished plentifully with vegetables, pork meat, and shrimp.

My dining partner personally doesn’t see any way for the ying yong to be improved— it’s perfect and he wouldn’t add or remove anything. However, do take note that the shrimp’s tail is still attached, so be careful not to gobble the whole thing.

Lastly, we tried the kopitiam’s Teh Ais (RM2.90) and Cham Ais (RM2.90). For those unfamiliar with cham, it’s essentially a delightful fusion of milk tea and coffee. The teh ais was perfectly balanced, not too sweet nor too bland. Similarly, the cham ais also had a perfect balance of coffee and milk tea. The frothy foam topping of both beverages was a delightful bonus, enhancing the overall drinking experience.

Final thoughts

Overall, New Yew Sang Seafood Restaurant is worth the visit. I enjoyed the food and the atmosphere of the kopitiam. The aunties who took our orders were very welcoming and happy to serve us. For future visits, I would recommend arriving early in the morning, as we noticed that several stalls had already closed due to their dishes being sold out early. 

Although we arrived at 10am, parking was quite hard to find. I would also advise having cash on hand, as there are certain stalls that do not accept QR payments or e-wallet transactions. 

If you’re looking for a nice breakfast or quick lunch fix, I recommend this place for its diverse menu, food excellence, and top-notch service.
