Kedai Kopi Janggut – Fresh and delicious tomyam soup


There are few places that you can get Tomyam noodle soup in Kota Kinabalu, and one of it is located in Hilltop (Kedai Kopi Janggut). Out of curiosity and recommendation from circle of friends, we went to that place and try the food ourselves.


The place usually packed in the morning, so you should consider to come early. It is known as “Janggut” because the owner has beard.


Here are some of Kedai Kopi Janggut’s menu.

Delicious Tom Yum soup with fresh fish
Fried noodle with prawn. Good for two
Crispy fried Fu Chuk (dry beancurd)
Fish with Tausi – One of the signature dishes
Look at that food. Perfect combination to keep you full whole day long
Left to Right: Iced chinese tea, soursop ice blended and calamansi juice. I really love the soursop juice.

My verdict

Food were nice, I love the taste of the Tom Yam soup and their signature fried noodle. The soursop juice is something that you should try.


Cleanliness of the restaurant is just fine but the service was quite slow. We asked for menu from one of the workers but we had to wait like ages. Ended up asking the boss to take order and all menu were based on the photos from her tablet (and no pricelist). Mind you that fork and spoon and condiments are all self-service.


Suggestion: to create menu set including price so people can easily order.
