Labuan is perhaps one of the least traveled established islands for most Malaysian, the duty-free land is usually frequent only for those who has a purpose related to work, and I too was not immune to that same logic. This was was in fact my just my second time being at this part of Borneo.

Anyway, I thought it’ll be a good idea to jot down some of the eateries I’ve tried over this trip for the sake of completeness and future reference, starting with Loong Fish Head Soup Stall.

The “stall” is actually a restaurant by itself situated a stone’s throw away from Dataran Labuan, which itself is a very short walk from Dorsett Grand Labuan which I spent my nights.

The set up is not entirely too different from any kopitiam, but featuring only one stall serving primarily noodle soup with your choice of different noodle in soup or dry versions.

I had mine in dry kolomee that comes with a bowl of delightful soup filled with several pieces of deep fried fish fillet (looks to be garupa). The noodle itself had a nice texture and was topped with some crispy bits (I can’t make up what it’s made of), while the fish was fresh and even still slightly crispy even if it was soaking in the tomato based broth it came with.

The condiment of chili sauce wasn’t something to shout about, but overall it still made for quite a pleasant dinner for RM 10.

There’s another more “famous” fish noodle place at Kedai Kopi Chai Wang but sadly I did not get to sample that this time around due to timing of flights. Perhaps next round.
