Yesterday at Subang Courtyard is certainly a restaurant/cafe perfectly named for an Abbott and Costello skit, but more importantly, it is also a pretty nice place to hang out with friends and grab a cup of coffee, or have a meal.
Located at the pretty new Subang Courtyard “mall”, Yesterday is easily accessible and has three different seating areas – alfresco outdoors, alfresco indoors, and proper indoors, so there’s probably a suitable table for the particular mood you find yourself in on any given day.
The restaurant claims to be a British Colonial and Japanese inspired brand, and the menu does reflect the theme pretty well.
There’s the full English breakfast, and the likes of Kinwa Sarada (lemon aioli and wasabi sour cream-dressed salad of quinoa, kidney beans, chick peas, zucchini, salad sprouts and konnyaku).
However, if you’re looking for onigiri or sushi, you should head elsewhere.
The choices of coffee served here is more than decent, with the latte and flat whites beautifully prepared and tasting as full bodied as any.
The regular Espresso Affogato and Macha Affogato are somehow very reasonably priced, providing excellent value for money for something sweet with a jolt to the nervous system.
If you’re into savoury meals, Yesterday provides quite a few solid choices.
The English breakfast is decent although the portion could be bigger, and the Breakfast Box Hokkaido with garlic butter, scrambled eggs, smoked salmon, shitake mushrooms, bonito flakes, vegetables and herbs definitely gets the thumbs up.
For pasta lovers, the Smoked Duck Kamoglio and Yesterday’s Carbonara Bake should satisfy you.
However, the Kinwa Sarada or The Japanese Forage (salad of smoked duck confit, roasted pumpkin, edamame, zucchini flower, red radish, cherry tomatoes, salad sprouts and mache dressed in homemade balsamic dressing and topped with crushed walnuts) is something that’s more representative of the East-meets-West theme.
For those who love sweet endings to their meals, do try their Passionately Mango Panna Cotta, A Heavenly Match, Yesterday’s Toast, or their Royal Banana Crumble. Any of these will satisfy your sweet cravings.
