Tuaran Noodles @ Restaurant Tai Ann, Tuaran, Kota Kinabalu

21 Dec

Dear Food lovers,

Last Sunday, my God bro woke me up on a beautiful Sunday afternoon (yes. i was catching up on my lost hours) inviting me to join him and our mate who just got back from Sydney for lunch at Tuaran.
Tuaran is a small town located approximately 20 mins up north from KK town/city. A much smaller town compared to Kota Kinabalu tho. Every Sunday, you may come across natives from around the area actively trading in the market which also known as the ‘tamu‘.
Foremost reason we went all the way to Tuaran was for their Tuaran noodles. Apparently there are several restaurants to settle for good Tuaran noodles, so my God bro suggested restaurant Tai Ann. A very run down tacky restaurant where you would probably think twice before entering, however it gave me the genuine feeling of a well preserved ‘kopitiam‘.
We ordered three plates of Tuaran Noodles the moment we sat down and minutes later the kopitiam worker lay three plates of Tuaran Noodles on our table… that’s right… tacky restaurant with efficient workers.
Tuaran noodles basically consists of fried egg noodles thus giving it a shiny effect, sliced red devilish char siew (bbq pork), sliced chun ken (meat egg roll) and cooked choy sum (菜心) but i think they ran out of choy sum so they replaced it with cabbage…
The first bite was intriguing, you could literally taste the elasticity of the egg noodles but at the same time the taste of oil that is left within your mouth after swallowing the noodles is kinda upsetting. But to most people, the oily effect does not quite bother them.
I thought the char siew and chun ken was average. It tasted like any other char siew and chun ken you may find in KK. Overall the dish was still good and recommended if you are ever to drive up to Tuaran for their signature dish.

    I find the char-siew so weird with Tuaran mee.. I had some at another shop before I left and it just looked awful.. I didn’t even want to put the char-siew in my mouth, let alone eat it! :S
