Western & Pasta @ Restoran Yu Yiee, Damansara Jaya

Short post on another good option for coffeeshop Western food :)....

My friends who live in Damansara Jaya have long told me about their favourite neighbourhood coffeeshop Western food stall, but for one reason or another I never got around to trying it out till last week.
(Located in Restoren Yu Yiee, a fairly unassuming corner shop lot just behind the Kolej Damansara Utama aka. KDU):
Outside the "restaurant"...

Of course being a coffeeshop, the setting inside is basic:
(Note: The ventilation inside there is not great - It is likely you will leave smelling like food)
Basic coffeeshop setting...

That night I tried the highly recommended Lamb chops with pasta and chips (RM 10):
(You can have the lamb with just the olio pasta or just the fries but Sooj suggested that I try the "half and half" option)
My dinner...

So, was it the best lamb chop and spaghetti I have ever eaten in my whole life?

Well, no.... :P
... but here's the thing: RM 10 nett for 3 pretty big pieces of (fairly) tender and tasty lamb chops, with crispy shoe string fries as well as some fragrant, al dente aglio olio pasta on the side?

(I was surprised how much I liked the pasta - it was slightly dry but deliciously garlicky and accentuated by the generous sprinkling of herbs)

There are also some other really affordable choices at this stall (Ham & Cheese Toast for RM 2.80, Spaghetti Bolognese for RM 6.50, etc) as well as 3 other stalls for you to choose from (one serving fried chicken, one serves fried rice and noodles and some other Chinese dishes (mini tai chow), and another serving bak kut teh).

So, it's: Simple coffeeshop setting, quite limited selection but decent tasting Western food at decent prices, convenient location for PJ folk BUT ventilation is bad there, so you may leave smelling like food... and nothing else bad, just please don't expect it to be as nice as a proper restaurant - it's cheap! :)...
