Chow Mein for Dave

Special delivery!! Don't these look familiar and bring you down memory lane (Tamparuli's lane to be exact)? Haven't had a chance to visit Tamparuli for a long while, so I made a special tapau (take-away) order to Kedai Yun Kee through Mui Fung. The noodle hasn't change much as far as packaging is concerned.
OK, let's open it...
 
Hah, what's on the news? Oh good, we've got the cartoon page!!

Here we are - the famous Tamparuli chow mein (fried noodle). David, this is all yours. Enjoy!

As for myself, a little presentation doesn't hurt. It still retained its shape of the packaging even when placed on a serving plate...

Toss and rearrange the noodle a little and serve with some chilli padi crushed in lime and soy sauce... a feast.
David, one of these days, I promise I will go to the shop and do a proper post.

errr... no, not in Penang. Tamparuli is a small town about 40km northeast of Kota Kinabalu. A small town along the way to Kinabalu Park.

i want tamparuli chow mein..i miss it when i visit KK on April..i just have Tenom mein and tuaran mein ;)

I agree with the chopped chilli padi and soy sauce. It transports and advances the taste by several levels.

When in school, we usually add hot curry, to make the noodles warm as it was packed in the early morning.
