Hi Kayes
You might like to know that Wan Li restaurant has closed and in its place is Little Taiping, serving Thai food. What a shame as Wan Li served good old fashion Hainanese food.

Yut Sun attracts more crowd because it's PORK-FREE. To turn a restaurant from a non pork-free to pork-free is not easy. It requires many procedures.

hello Blue Grass and thanks for the info. If I am not wrong Wan Li was run by two brothers. I used to eat there often in the 90s. The taller brother (can't remember his name right now) likes cars and if I drove my MX5 there, we would talk about that car or about one of my Alfas. I last met him in 2001 in Chulia Street Penang.


Orange, Yut Sun is run by Hainanese I think. I often heard the husband speaking to the wife in Hainanese. I love their cakes and the chicken chop was also pretty good Smile

Wow Kayes, you actually can understand Hainanese! Thumbs Up!


The senior patriarch has very good PR skill. Even though he has passed the baton to his son and daughter-in-law, very often we can see him go from table to table to greet his customers who are mostly regulars. Occasionally, the grandchildren are in the shop to help out too.

I am sure many agree that food is only 70% of the reasons why customers continue patronising the same restaurant. The balance 30% consist of good service, cleanliness and most importantly good customer relationships.
