It was a public holiday the other day when we were out around town for our family outing.
I saw the banner outside one of the restaurant along Gaya Street for quite some times and it was actually my first time having meal (brunch) at the restaurant selling the famous pork noodle a.k.a Sang Nyuk Mian (生肉面) which originated by local SABAHAN! And many of them told us that Sang Nyuk Mian can only be found in Sabah! But sorry to say, that I'm not a huge fan of it.
So, we had our meal as follow...
- Kon Lou Kuey Teow 干捞粿条 -
Pork slices cooked in soup while noodles 'kon lao' (served dry with dark soy sauce).
- The Story of Kedai Kopi Kim Hing Lee -
From the huge board behind the noodle stall, there's short (which quite long in fact) story explained about 金兴利茶室 (Kedai Kopi Kim Hing Lee), the well established restaurant at Sinsuran and assuming it is the first pork noodle restaurant in town and review from local newspaper editor.
- Noodle Soup -
If you would like to eat something light with pork meat and pork "spare parts", we may seek for their noodle soup. However, the one served with dark soy sauce will taste much better.
- Kon Lou Mian 干捞面 -
As some of us may not favour pork spare parts, we might personally request what we would like to include in our soup as well! No heart feeling bah~~
- The review by local newspaper editor -
From my personal opinion, I love the Kon Lao Kuey Teow which is soft and thin and the dark soy sauce mixed with it taste good. :)
But as for the soup, I think that it wasn't salty enough (yes, I know salty is unhealthy, but the correct portion of saltiness will make the soup taste GOOD). I wonder, maybe I should try the original restaurant at Sinsuran someday. As for now, I still prefer the famous one at Lintas, either the one next to Hong Leong Bank or Sinsuran Sang Nyuk Mian.
