The first recommended food in “Yi Ji” is its “Signature Wonton Mee”. The ingredients include fried wonton, Char Siew, lard and onions. The easiest way to prepare this is to cook the noodles and mix it with oil and soy sauce to blackened the noodles. The fried wonton, char siew and onions are then placed onto the noodles and it is ready to be served. It has a combination of sweet and savoury taste and the noodles has a soft texture. As for the soup, it needs at least one hour to cook and boil the soup. The chicken meat and bones and fish meat are used to cook this soup. This traditional wonton mee is one of the top favourites among the regulars.

The next recommended food is the “Curry Chicken”. The curry paste requires ingredients such as curry powder, pandan leaves, coconut milk and chillies to complete. The ingredients are fried for at least an hour and the chicken is then only put to fry for another half an hour. This curry tastes spicy, strong in curry flavour, and the coconut milk makes the whole curry taste fresh. The curry chicken when bitten, has a soft and juicy texture. The curry chicken does come with rice or noodles and it is completely optional.

When it comes to Nasi Lemak, the main ingredients include the fried peanuts, fried egg, fried anchovies (fried fish), sliced cucumber, fried chicken, fried wonton and the homemade sambal. The sambal did not come from the supplier, but rather homemade. Onions, garlic, sugar, chillies sauce and fried anchovies are cooked together for an amount of time until the sauce becomes thick and the sambal is ready. The sambal has a spicy and sweet taste. In overall, the deep fried crispy drumstick chicken, the sweet and spicy sambal, and the delicate rice make the whole “Nasi Lemak” taste perfect and delicious.
