【沙巴美食】 亚庇 - 怡豐叻沙 Food in Kota Kinabalu - Yee Fung Laksa, Gaya Street

=P Totally missed this one with withinmeitzeu watermarked below and only realised it while I was browsing through my photo albums for blogging purpose.

Yee Fung Laksa has been a well recognised coffee shop at Gaya Street for years and there are so many customers on daily basis, especially on Sunday when Sunday Market was held. As one of many KKian, I'm quite ashamed that I think I only visited this restaurant for once or twice but heard about most of the time.


- Yee Fung Laksa (怡豐叻沙) -

On one fine Sunday, along with Dad and Meatball-Online, we visited the restaurant for brunch. I saw tourists were capturing photographs with the food and gosh, majority were worldwide tourists there. Convenient location where it is easily found by foot and non the less, by words of mouth after tourists went back to their countries.


- Yee Fung Laksa (怡豐叻沙) -

Various beverages and a few signature dishes shown and hanged for customers to select. Good way to ease the difficulty of tourists when they don't even understand a bit of the local language.

Reasonable pricing in the middle of the city. And how about the food tasted?


- Yee Fung Laksa (怡豐叻沙) @ RM5.00 -

I think their Laksa has been over-rated, not my kind of Laksa that I could go "WOW" with. It DOES NOT taste spicy (although some may say Laksa is not meant to be spicy) with it Curry Soup. It's seem like an average Laksa that I have tried before while I was studying back then with more Coconut milk, and how unattractive when the presentation looks like that. :(


- Yee Fung Ngau Chap (怡豐牛杂) -

I didn't try this one. But comment from Meatball, it tasted ordinary too. :)


- Teh Tarik Ping (拉茶) -

I'm a bit disappointed with their Teh Tarik Ping which is nothing tasted like tea but more taste like milk. :( No mamak taste of Teh Tarik.

There's my review on Yee Fung Laksa (怡豐叻沙), no matter how I described the food I had, the best way to indulge it, is when a person actually sit there and enjoy. I'm sure they could prepare their Laksa better than that, maybe it tasted different when the shop is crowded with people. :)

Location:
Gaya Street with huge signboard of Yee Fung Laksa (怡豐叻沙). :)

Have a great day all!

  3. This looks familiar. I wonder have I been there before when I was in KK.

    The Ngau Chap looks more delicious then the laksa (or as Ipoh call this type, curry mee. LOL.)

  13. Wonder how the can draw such big crowd as from your review, its sounds like the food is average in taste. Could be because our taste of the food and how the rest find it may be different. I am like you for curry laksa must be really spicy and in fact, I add more chilly padi inside.

  16. You've only been here once or twice?! You should be punished. Wakakaa jk.

    I agree with you too actually. I think it's over-rated. But maybe that's because the location is strategic. I dunno, my guess la. It's just normal for me also, even the drinks.

    Or the reason is because like what you said, the taste is different because a lot of people ;P

    Happy mid-week, Meitzeu!

  17. I used to go there all the time for the Claypot chicken rice. I super love it. Miss the time when my office used to be just above Hong Leong Bank. Now office moved to KKTS a bit hard to go Gaya Street just to eat that.
