Lam’s Place – from Menggatal, Sabah

lams place

Lam’s Place is the new eating establishment in Chong Lin Park
specializing in ngui chap (beef noodles). It just opened a couple of
days ago – it’s located right beside Waterworld. The place has a banner
that says: From Menggatal, Sabah’s “Ngui Chap” (Beef Noodles etc) & others available now!
I have a juvenile sense of humor so I didn’t really get over the
“menggatal” reference. Menggatal can mean ham sup or horny…a rather
unfortunate name for a town.

lams place interior

This is what the interior looks like. It’s pretty packed,
considering I arrived late. Their opening hours are from 8 AM – 2:30 PM
and 5:30 PM – 8:30 PM. The seating arrangements (a pretentious word for
tables and chairs ;)) consists of perfectly square wooden tables meant
for 4 people.

They have a variety of condiments on the table and this place
operates by writing down your order into a bill, which is then
tabulated and placed in an ornament on your table. You take it to the
cashier and pay the bill when you’re done.

lams place beef noodles

Here’s my order – Raw beef & beef balls with noodles (RM 5.50).
The wet (soup) version is basically the same thing, but they combine
the noodles in the big bowl of soup instead of in a separate bowl.
Lam’s Place serves beef noodles as its staple (both the wet and dry
version), though you can opt to have rice to substitute the noodles if
you want. I’m not a big fan of soup dishes, so I went for Raw Beef and
Beef Balls noodles (dry).

This is a closer look at the noodles. The noodles taste absolutely
great! I can’t remember having a more delicious bowl since this beef
noodle stall in Sibu shut down. It was infused with a variety of tangy
and salty flavors.

lams place beef soup

Here’s a photo of the soup, served separately. There are beef balls
floating on the top (don’t think they’re home made), with beef slices
at the bottom, flanked with veggies and bean sprouts. The soup was not
as salty as I like it to be, but the salty noodles more than makes up
for that. The main portion was very generous too, though I would have
liked a larger bowl of noodles.

lams place beef slice

This is the raw beef slice that’s put into the bowl before serving
to slowly cook. I love it – the beef doesn’t get overcooked this way.

I highly recommend this place if you have a hankering for beef
noodles. It’s their specialty and they have great service. I’m not sure
if the service is the type typical of newly opened eateries or they
really do have good service, but that hardly matters considering the
food. They apologized for my order taking so late to arrive (I didn’t
even think it was that long of a wait) and I was asked whether I
enjoyed my meal and how my food was when I paid the bill. I told them
it was good. 🙂

I’ll reply all the comments later, I’ve got to head out now. Cheers!

  3. Great post. Can I ask you a question? I want to start a blog as well that is why I was searching on the internet for blogs to use as examples, do you find you have to be perfect in your grammar to have people like what you write? I have been told I write like I speak, so I was wondering if that was a bad thing.

  4. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the layout of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful many text for only having one or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?

  7. I smoke non filtered cigarettes for 7 years, for the past 2 years i was trying to quit and had no luck for more than 1 month. The moment I picked up an electronic cigarette, I quit tobacco. That was over 6 months ago now. I am still going strong.

  8. Great article and straight to the point. I don’t know if this is truly the best place to ask but do you guys have any thoughts on where to get some professional writers? Thanks in advance 🙂

  10. I’m impressed, I must say. Very rarely do I see a blog that’s both educational and entertaining, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. Your opinion is outstanding; the issue is something that not a lot of people are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I stumbled across this in my search for something relating to this.

I dont have a whole lot time for it to read your entire post presently but We’ve bookmarked it and also signed up for your RSS feeds. I am in a couple of days. many thanks an incredible site.

  15. The great thing about these blogging engines and CMS platforms is the lack of limitations and ease of manipulation that permits builders to implement rich content and ‘skin’ the positioning in such a manner that with little or no effort one would never discover what it’s making the location tick all without limiting content and effectiveness.

  16. One hasn’t become a writer until one has distilled writing into a habit, and that habit has been forced into an obsession. Writing has to be an obsession. It has to be something as organic, physiological and psychological as speaking or sleeping or eating.

  17. The Nexus One uses an Adreno 200 GPU which is the weakest GPU among the high-end Android smartphones. The Droid 1 has a PowerVR SGX GPU, the same kind the iPhones have, and it’s much faster than the Adreno 200. If you’re going to compare against the iPhone 4 (PowerVR SGX 535), use a phone with hardware more on par with that phone. The Droid X/Droid 2 use the PowerVR SGX 530, the Galaxy S phones use the PowerVR SGX 540, and the Desire HD and G2 use the Adreno 205 which is close to the performance of the PowerVR SGX 540.
