Update (Sep 2013): This restaurant is closed and the owner has moved to Papar town doing other business.

Beef Noodle (Ngiu Chap or Ngau Chap) is a signature dish of Sabah, so I’m always on the quest looking for the best Ngiu Chap. Sometimes I’m surprised that good food is just nearby. For example, I found very special Ngiu Chap at Damai Plaza (Kota Kinabalu), which was not far from my office. Since then, I visited Kedai Kopi Good Luck Restaurant (Chinese Name: 澔運茶餐室) regularly.

Beef Noodle
Pic: The spicy beef noodle with tendon (Chinese Name: 麻辣牛肉面) is my favorite.

The beef soup is delicious, and the handmade flat noodle is smooth and springy. Look at the big beef slices, tendon and meat balls, your every bite will be a mouthful of beef and noodle. You can choose 3 levels of hotness, i.e., little, mild and super hot. You can try their Stewed Beef Noodle (Chinese Name: 红烧牛肉面) if you don’t like spicy food.

Ngiu Chap
Their beef noodle only consists of meat and tendon (no internal organs such as tripe, tongue and liver like other Ngiu Chap), so I’m not sure if it is considered as Ngiu Chap, technically. Well, who cares as it tastes so good.

The meat is so well-marinated that it is soft, juicy and “creamy”. The restaurant is 8 years old. The lady boss, Ms Huang, is a Taiwanese married with a Malaysian, Andrew. Both of them love beef noodle, so they invent a Sabah version of Taiwan Beef Noodle, or you can call it a “hybrid” of Ngiu Chap (Sabahan mixed beef noodle).

Both Spicy and Stewed Beef Noodles cost the same, MYR8 (≈USD2.66) per serving, without tendon is MYR6 (≈USD2). If you are a big eater and want extra meat, add another MYR3 (≈USD1). Prices as of Nov 2012.

Besides Beef Noodles, their famous dish is Nyonya Asam Mix Fish Noodle Soup.

This restaurant may sound new to you, but trust me, Good Luck.
