Tofu with minced beef is one of Nyuk Pau Kopitiam specials. There are not many places to find Tofu with minced beef, as most people make Tofu stuffs with pork meat or fish meat. Therefore Tofu with minced beef can be considered as a kind of rarity. Well Nyuk Pau Kopitiam is the only one that has Tofu with minced beef in their menu, that I know about.

Kedai Kopi Loi Hin

ngau chap with noodle soup

“Ngau Chap”, which consists of beef ball, briskets and mixed cow parts, is my favourite breakfast. “Ngau Chap” literally translates from Chinese to “cow mixed”. One finds all sort of cow parts in a “Ngau Chap” meal, beef balls, cow intestine, cow tongue, even cow ligament is on offer.

Since I was a young boy, I have heard of this popular “Ngau Chap” kopitiam from Donggongon, Penampang. In the old day one would need to drive through narrow and winding road for about 45 minutes to go from KK to Donggongon, but today with the new highway, travel time has been cut down from 45 minutes to a mere 20 minutes.
