Kedai Kopi Tai Meng
Before my trip to Kota Kinabalu, my friend recommended me one dish by the name Tuaran Mee.
Tuaran is a town in Sabah and this dish originates from this town. Due to its popularity, the sale of such dish has expanded to Kota Kinabalu. Kedai Kopi Tai Meng is actually our second choice as our first choice is not open due to the Chinese New Year break.
Tuaran mee consist of, among others, noodles, roasted pork and vegetables. It’s fried and tastes quite egg-ish. – quite tasty too! To complement this dish, one should add the stall’s self-made condiment i.e. their spicy sauce. If it’s too spicy, you may add some soy sauce to dilute the spicy taste.
While eating, we saw this cat with multi coloured eyes.
This cat kept clinging on my friend’s jeans. After my friend kicked the cat away, the cat went to another table and started clinging on a lady’s jeans. LOL

Live it up, Clement: Tuaran Mee
One of the things I don’t see in Kuala Lumpur is small retails selling egg tarts solely. I’ve almost been a big fan of egg tarts and I would order egg tarts whenever I go for dimsum.
Took this when it was closed 😛
While walking around Warisan Square, I bought a piece of egg tart from a small shop by the name Dotts Egg Tarts. Each egg tart costs RM1.10 – quite expensive for KK standard. However, it’s well worth it. Although it’s not freshly out from the oven, the egg custard was still warm and soft. The egg custard was sweet and extremely delicious. I wanted another one when I finished the first one!!!
Soon I realised that Dotts Egg Tart is a chain selling egg tarts. In fact, there are many other shops that sell only egg tarts! This is something that I would recommend Klang Valley entrepreneurs to venture in.
A Daily Obsession: Salmon-Bacon Quiche
Our first dinner was at Port View Seafood Village, a well known restaurant for tourists. It’s located along the beach in Kota Kinabalu City. We were told that the food there is good but a little bit pricey.
After sitting down, a lady came to serve us. We wanted to eat fish..
Me: What fish do you have?
Lady: “Lou pan” and “Chat sing Pan”..
I know that “chat sing pan” (literally means “seven stars fish”) is quite expensive. However, at that time, I forgot the Chinese names of the cheaper fishes. Hence…
Me: How much is “lou pan”? For 2 person..
Lady: oh, around RM200
Me: O_O ok..how about “chat sing pan”??
Lady: About RM15 per 100 gram.
Me: Aahh..ok.. 1 steamed “chat sing pan” please.
We ordered a dish of vegetables to complement our fish. It took a long time for the fish to come.
The fish came and we ate. The fish was fresh from the aquarium. I didn’t know until I was told later but nevertheless it was good. It’s best to eat fresh fish steamed as from there, one can taste the freshness of it.
But when the bill came…RM90 for “chat sing pan”!!! What the fish!!?!? RM90 FOR FRESHNESS??? I GIVE FRESH FART RM90 CAN??? THIS IS THE MOST EXPENSIVE FISH I’VE EVAAAA EATTEEEENNNN$@$!!1111
My friend brought the www.xes.cx makan team to one restaurant by the name Siang Siang Pan Mian @ Lintas. The interior is quite similar to our Ipoh Oldtown Coffee. However, the place seems a little bit dirty – rubbish was scattered over the floor.
The menu comes in a mixture of English, Malay and Mandarin language – with pinyin for bananas like me. One part you have soup, another part you got mee kuning.
See bottom line…Feet / “Lutut” LOL! Shouldn’t it be feet / “kaki”??
I ordered a soup based pan mee aka kan lau pan mian.
After ordering our food, I spotted a small bowl filled with fresh lime. I was told that the lime juice extracted from the fresh lime is to be mixed with the soup.
Other than the soup based pan mee, we also ordered “teik pan” (hot plate) pan mee. The teik pan pan mee is quite good but their soup based pan mee is so-so. However, after adding some lime juice into my soup based pan mee, the taste of the noodles became quite interesting.
