If you would like to get some taste of the greatest yam rice, it must have to be the yam rice from Bukit Mertajam. This will definitely be no mistake to have a taste of the yam rice from BM Yam Rice Kopitiam.
Chong Lian Shin, the owner of BM Yam Rice Kopitiam, who opened Bukit Mertajam’s first yam rice stall in Jalan Murthy in 1983, has tweaked the recipe from a similar dish which he enjoyed very much when he was in Singapore.
Besides anticipating to sell more than 1,000 bowls of rice on that day, he has also reserved additional pork from his supplier to cope with the demand as yam rice is often served with salted vegetable pork soup or soy sauce pork trotters.
The shop, BM Yam Rice Kopitiam, is open daily from 9am to 3pm, except on Wednesdays. BM Yam Rice is located at 6, Jalan Murthy, 14000 Bukit Mertajam, Penang. To avoid disappointment you may also call 012 564 6104 for table booking.
