BRINGING TOGETHER THE OLD AND THE NEW.
Yap Ah Shak House is located in KL’s heritage centre, two kilometres away from the bright lights of KLCC and Pavillion KL.
The building is a five-minute stroll from LRT Dang Wangi, a seven-minute walk from Stesen Monorel Medan Tuanku, and twelve minutes by car to KL Sentral.
Within walking distance of the building are many notable food and drink options for a taste of the old and new. A short stroll to The Row will take you to Limapulo: Baba Can Cook, serving up authentic Nyonya cuisine, Yarl with its timeless menu of Sri Lankan appam, thosai and thali sets and Heritage Pizza for those yearning prosciutto and nduja on their pie.
Along Jalan Yap Ah Shak itself is Pizzeria Dihyang, KL’s certified Neapolitan pizza specialist along with Gavel a few doors down, where a lovely traditional Sunday roast can be washed down with craft ale. Licky Chan’s in the neighbouring shophouse presents a sweet option for a scoop or two of artisanal gelati.
Across the road on Jalan Kamunting meanwhile is Stripes Hotel and Yut Kee, a venerable local institution for traditional Hainanese coffee-shop fare. For the more adventurous, there’s Joloko with a Caribbean and Mexican inspired menu as well as local brunch favourite Tapestry KL, along with the more recent additions Bricks & Bread for their sourdough creations, and Thai Bro for a savoury bowl of kwai chap.
Quill City Mall on Jalan Sultan Ismail offers easy access to shopping at NSK Grocer for daily essentials and any emergency needs while at work.
