Beaufort Mee 保佛面

There are several districts in Sabah have got their signature mee.  For example Tuaran mee, Tamparuli mee, Tenom Mee and Beaufort Mee.  To me there are similarities among them which at times make me confused which type of mee we are eating.

Today, I would like to introduce our girls' favourite mee, the Beaufort Mee...

Lots of sawi with slices of char sau and pork in starchy gravy
I was told that these yellow spring noodle is handmade locally
I am not a mee person so I opted for meehoon instead
with the same gravy and cooking style, I could enjoy the Beaufort style fried meehoon.
There was one time we drove to Beaufort to look for the authentic Beaufort mee, unfortunately it was a public holiday, the coffee shop was closed..now without much hassle, we could easily find Beaufort mee around KK.

Beaufort is a quiet town some 95KM away from KK.  It is about 1.5 hours drive on the highway or 2 hours by train from KK city. Here is where Beaufort is located in North Borneo, you can read more about it via Sabah Tourism's website here.

  2. I am also not a mee person especially with clear soup. I only eat mee in curry or fried mee. Looks like what we have over here the wat tan mee or meehoon.

  4. You drove 95km to look for food? Wow. :)

    The mee does look special. The gravy looks a bit like you can whip up at home?
