Kedai Kopi Kim Hing Lee 金興利茶室 @Sinsuran, Kota Kinabalu, Sabah

Business hours: Monday - Sunday 6:00am - 2:30pm

On the day leaving KK, my friend's cousin came to fetch us for breakfast. As she's married to a local, she knows better where to have the best local food. We came to Kedai Kopi Kim Hing Lee for its famous pork noodles. Pork noodles is ubiquitous in Sabah, the best highlight of this dish is its thinness of the pork slice. Each slice is evenly thin and smooth, the soup is exceptionally tasty, and the bowl of dry noodles is full of lard aroma. No exaggeration of how tasty it is, it's a must-try dish in Sabah.

Kedai Kopi Kim Hing Lee started in 1982, they are the first shop selling pork noodles in KK.

The set of pork noodles, one bowl of soup with pork meat slices, liver and intestine. The presentation may look unattractive, but taste will not disappoint you. This is the only dish that impressed me during the entire KK trip.

The thinness of pork slice and liver.

The shop is manned by the owner's daughter now. When I walked to the counter for payment, she asked me where I am from. She told me her one and only disciple is trading the recipe for monetary purpose. There's one pork noodles shop newly opened in Kuching, very popular nowadays. Their recipe is also learnt from her disciple. If got chance to visit, I would like to make comparison of it.
