Kedai Kopi Wan Wan, Kota Kinabalu

Kedai Kopi Wan Wan is an auspiciously named eating establishment in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah. The eatery specializes in fish noodles (as in noodles made of fish puree) and fish pieces (also made from the same puree). It came highly recommended from a KK resident who claimed that seafood and the fish noodles here are the only noteworthy specialties in Sabah.

After recommended by my friends, we drive our "small green sport car" to find the place at Bundusan. The photo below is the car that we use to find Kedai Kopi Wan Wan.

After driving around half an hour from University Malaysia Sabah, we saw a signboard which is shown in the photo below. The signboard ask us to turn left. It is very easy to find Kedai Kopi Wan Wan.

After entering the shop I am surprising because there are a lot of people having their lunch at there. It is totally full. It seems that a lot of KK residents agree, as the place was packed during lunch and even well after lunch hour. Kedai Kopi Wan Wan spans two large shop houses and is neatly compartmentalized into indoor and outdoor (the term al fresco should never be used to describe the Malaysian dining experience) spaces. The tables were filled with people eating the much lauded fish noodles and a side dish of fish slices in soup.

Another surprising things for me at Kedai Kopi Wan Wan is there are a lot of Malay citizen enjoy the food at there too. It is very weird for me because it is really very difficult to the a shop like that at west malaysia.

Without wasting the time, I ordered an fish cake/fish slice Thailand Tom Yam Mee/Mihun. It is really really very delicious for me. If I get 100 mark, I will give this food 90 mark. The fish cake/ fish slice is made originally by them which is very fresh for me. The way they cook is really delicious.

My friends ordered the Kou Lou Mee which is nice too.
After I finished my food, I should say that I must rise up my thumb and say "excellent" from their food. I strongly recommended your all come to eat at here.

If you watch episode movie "富貴門", I think that you will very familiar with this shop. There are a lot of superstar come here to eat before. For example, Liu Qing Yun and 羅嘉良 ! There are a lot of evidence photo shown in the shop.

Every workers in the shop are very busy to serve customer and cook for food.

The kitchen is very clean and neat too.They are really take care for cleaniless for the food and the shop.

The photo below show the salt fish made by them.

At the end I really enjoy the food at here and greatly recommended you all come to here and eat because of their good service and delicious food. Good bye , Kedai Kopi Wan Wan
