Knock yourself out with Kah Hiong Ngiu Chap

Beefy goodness with noodles.

Beef noodles are a favourite meal in Kota Kinabalu, and the name Kah Hiong Ngiu Chap keeps cropping up whenever this dish is mentioned.

Kah Hiong is located at Hilltop, a stone’s throw away from the popular Fatt Kee seafood noodle, and about a 10 minute drive from the city centre.

tendon, beef ball, innards, what's not to love?
Take your pick of tendon, beef ball or innards.

There’s a good selection of different combinations to be had here, like mixed beef soup with rice or noodles, beef stew, beef balls, sliced meat, or beef heart, liver, tripe, tendon, tongue, and such like.

If you’re unsure then go for the house speciality, Ngau Chap Mee Kan Lao – mixed beef soup with dry noodles.

You might find the soup base to be perhaps just a tad saltier than normal, but the ingredients are cooked to perfection. The innards are soft, the meat is tender, and the tendon is fantastic. So good that you will definitely order extra tendon the next time you visit.

Admittedly there are some very good beef noodle places in the Klang Valley, but Kah Hiong’s version really does stand out with its unique taste. You will like it. They have a branch in Puchong, Selangor, as well.
