Eating out in Tawau, Sabah is a way of life for the locals. Everybody enjoys having a good meal, and many people tend to have their breakfast at their favorite coffee shop everyday. Every time we meet up with friends, it is always to decide where we want to go for lunch.
Even in the normal course of a business day, more often than not, we continue our discussions at the coffee house with the best food. By being the best, I mean they deliver good tasting food made from fresh ingredients, day in and day out. The quality of the food is consistent, the taste is consistent and the service is consistent. This is how you build a name for your coffee shop.
Kedai Kopi Yuan Yuan
This homegrown coffee shop is located at a corner lot of Taman Mega Jaya, along Jalan Apas (Apas road), 3 1/2 miles out of Tawau town. I think this is the third year they are in business, and I sometimes wonder why they did not start their business earlier. You want home cooked food with fresh ingredients, this is the place you want to be.
There is nothing fancy about the place, they let their food do the talking. So how good is the food? Well, they sell out by the end of lunch time every day. I am not kidding. If you turn up at 2.00pm expecting to order, the chances are there is nothing left. It is packed during breakfast and lunch. And I make sure I go there every time I am in Tawau.
The Food They Serve
Everything is handmade from fresh ingredients, prawn balls, fish balls, wantan, sliced fish, beef and chicken. They serve Soto, Mee Soup and KonLow (dried tossed noodles). They don’t serve pork, and they don’t serve rice. They just don’t have enough people to run a large menu. What you get is pretty much the house specialty, and it tastes just as you remembered it from your last visit.
Everyone who visits Tawau must try the Soto, which is a delicious Malay/Indonesian soup made from stock, herbs and spices. The recipes are a secret, and the best places to try this dish is Yuan Yuan at Taman Mega Jaya, Yummy Yummy at Kobuta Point and Cool at Fajar Complexs Tawau.
No photos this time. Couldn’t want to dig in myself.
