What a beautiful couple of days we have had this weekend! So my weekend started off with going out for dinner with my fiancé M. We live in the Bayswater/Maylands area so we went to a little noodle house called Yip Kee Noodle in Maylands. It is a very simple place and to be honest, the first time we went there we didn't like it. Maybe we were expecting it to be better? Who knows. Anyway, a couple of months ago we tried it again and now we frequent this place quite often when we want a cheap/easy dinner.
From the outside it looks a bit dingy but when you walk in you will notice it has nice wooden floors with simple Australian/Chinese décor around the place. By Australian décor I mean it has surf life saving uniforms up on the walls, it is quite weird when you start to think about it too much!
Anyway, we placed our order, which were one dish of Beef Rendang and steamed rice and another dish of BBQ Pork Soup Noodles. Both of the dishes were only $10 which is very good value! We also got an iced tea and honeycomb bubble tea.
The iced tea arrived at our table quite quickly and about 10 minutes later the dishes arrived at our table. I have taken a picture of the noodles we ordered by M was starving and dived into his meal before I could even get my camera out!
Both meals were nice, I had the BBQ Pork Soup noodles (pictured below) and it was good. It had big pieces of Bok Choy and of course, BBQ pork in the noodles. One thing I would have liked though is a soup spoon to try and drink the broth with.
Anyway, we had both finished our meals and we still didn’t have the bubble tea. M went and asked for it and it then came out very quickly so I think they must have forgotten about it. The bubble tea was ok but I have to admit I am not the biggest fan of them.
We then left and payed for our meals which came to $28 for the two meals plus the iced tea and bubble tea which isn’t too bad!
Yipkee is definitely a family restaurant and is also BYO. It is cash only payment which is quite annoying but there are ATM’s across the road which is easy enough.
Likes: Cheap & easy
Dislikes: Having to pay cash, get with the times!So it is a good place to go if you want something quick, cheap and easy but don’t expect any stand out meals.
