Local from Kota Kinabalu

In the heart of the city is Kedai Kopi Seng Hing – which seems to equally attract locals and tourists alike. Once renowned for their tom yum noodles (a Thai specialty but modified to local tastes), the coffee shop is now more known for its fried fare – noodles, rice and anything that goes into a wok. The one that gets the most raves is a dish that was actually concocted by a regular customer but has since made its way on its official menu – the Tuaran mee with lihing (rice wine) and cili padi (bird’s eye chilli). A tip: the chillies pack a punch - tell them to go easy if heat is not your thing. And say hi to Pauline – the friendly, blond-haired taukeh-nyong (or boss lady) who is always happy to accommodate her diners (“no egg? You want extra egg? You want with less noodles? You like soup?”), which explains why so many keep coming back.

Seng Hing serves superb Tom Yam noodles with thick vermicelli and big prawns.
The broth is unlike any other Tom Yam as it is made creamy with coconut milk, has a tinge of sour and spicy, but not overpowering. The noodles are served with bean sprouts and sprigs of fresh coriander leaves. Be prepared to sweat if you have a meal here as the place is open air and the Tom Yam noodles trigger sweat! Definitely a MUST try if you like some heat.
Another MUST try at Seng Hing is the fried fish... order this to share. The portion is quite big.
