What? Mee Sup

Where? Penampang

I don’t really write much about food. Mainly because I don’t know much about food. But if you are looking for a place to eat that is different from the usual kopitiams and restaurants, then this setup located in a house in a kampung might interest you.

As the title suggests, mee sup is the famous dish here. But they also serve kon lo mien, sup ekor, sup tulang and the likes. I only discovered this place recently, but it has apparently been around for quite a while. They used to sell the mee sup at the Inobong tamu grounds nearby on weekends, but probably because business was so good, they started to operate from their house as well from Mondays to Fridays. They are open in the morning and usually sell out by 2pm. As my friend Amy said, it’s quite an interesting place to eat, because all of a sudden, you turn into a kampung, and there’s a place selling mee sup. The proprietor is probably very interested in heritage buildings as old photos of towns that have retained their pre-war structures decorate the walls. Dogs laze around next to where you eat, so if you are the fussy type whose food must be prepared to the utmost cleanliness, this place might not be for you. But rich men obviously have no problems eating at this place. (Luxury cars are always parked outside).

Mee Sup Pipin is located about 3km from Donggongon on the Penampang-Tambunan road. If you are coming from Donggongon, there’s a road sign “Tomposik” on the righ-hand side of the road, mee-sup-pipin-penampang-20090303-02

and an even smaller Mee Sup Pipin sign next to it.

Drive slowly as it is very easy to miss. Turn right into the road after this sign and you will see the cars parked in front of a house. This is Mee Sup Pipin.
