Eak Teng Yu Ki is one of the oldest traditional coffeeshops in Chinatown, Bangkok. It is said to have a sister-coffesship called Eiah-Sae which is nearby too. So, instead of going to On Luk Yun this time, I visited this classic traditional breakfast place that is been around for more than 90 years or more. Eak Teng Yu Ki is run by a Hainanses-Chinese owner that serves traditional Hainanese-style brewed coffee and classic breakfast.
We took a grab over from our hotel for less than 100THB and our breakfast was 86 THB for 2 pax. The coffee shop is located along the small lane and not easily noticeable from the main road. Thank god we grab over because we are not familiar with the place and convenient sake.
We were the only ladies in the shop apart from the service crew. The rest are the Thai-Chinese uncles aged from 50s onwards. Everyone was looking at us the moment we stepped in. We were approached by the aunty who took our order. She showed us the English menu and we just pointed our orders to her.
Here are our breakfast includes kaya toast, soft-boiled eggs, toast coated with butter and sugar, iced tea with milk and hot coffee.
They also serve complimentary tea as well.
While waiting for our order to arrive, we noticed that the elderly here are mostly regulars and they simply spend their day here chit chatting. The whole place is filled with their conversation in dialects. What we enjoyed here is that it is much localised unlike On Lok Yun.
The classic breakfast here also comforting and tasty too. My friend enjoyed the hot coffee here saying that it is fragrant and aromatic. And my Iced-tea with milk, it is ultra-milky rich as compared with On Luk Yun.
We left the coffeeshop feeling contented and headed to Chatuchak Market to shop for the day.
