BRN: MyTown Eating House

Where is Tuaran? You can find a dish from that particular town here!

MyTown Eating House is a highly rated self-service eatery near Badi'ah Hotel that serves Malaysian cuisine. My BFF and I decided to have a meal there, even though our next destination would be somewhere in Malaysia. The eatery works in collaboration with Justberrys to provide dessert items for its guests.

Melon was surprised to see the amount of mayonnaise in front of her.

Golden Chicken n' Shrimp Cracker B$6.90 (=S$6.90)
Taste: 7/10

Many a time, the dish that arrives at your table doesn't look exactly what's shown on the menu. Indeed that was the case for my crunchy you tiao (Chinese cruller) appetiser as it came with much more mayonnaise than expected, while the amount of nacho cheese was alright. The shrimp and chicken filling was pretty moist. 

Tuaran BBQ Chicken Mee B$4.00 (=S$4.00)
Taste: 8/10

For the uninitiated, Tuaran is a town located about 34 km north of Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia. The eatery's rendition of the noodle dish created by the Hakka community of Tuaran tasted homely and heart-warming. The BBQ chicken, not pork as MyTown is a Halal-certified, was sweet and savoury at the same time.

MyTown Penang Kway Teow B$4.50 (=S$4.50)
Taste: 8/10

The signature dish of stir-fried flat noodle doused in a significant volume of dark soy sauce was delicious. While it could have been made to exude more of the smoky fragrance, the balance of flavours was there without the use of MSG. It may not be seen clearly from the picture above, but I found quite a lot of cockles in the dish.

Pandan Chendol B$3.50 (=S$3.50)
Taste: 7/10

The eatery seemed to be serving a healthier version of the otherwise sinful dessert dish due to the moderate use of coconut milk and gula melaka (Malay brown sugar). It was a pity that the green jelly worms were a tad frozen, but I really enjoyed the lightly salted red beans.

Teh 'C' Peng Special B$2.30 (=S$2.30)
Taste: 8/10

One of my all-time favourite drinks is the Malaysian three-layered iced tea comprising brewed black tea at the top, evaporated milk in the middle and gula melaka at the bottom. The one that I had that day was pretty robust in terms of aroma without being too sweet. 

Melon's Rating
Taste: 7.5/10
Ambience: 7.5/10
Overall: 7.5/10

Pika's advice: If you're a bread lover, you may want to consider getting some from the in-house, which only operates during the day. That was a good dinner after a long walk from the gorgeous Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddin Mosque.
