When looking for food at Donggongon, everyone will mention of Mee Sup Pipin. What is Mee Sup Pipin and why does it called Mee Sup Pipin. We meet up with Georgina Pipin, The owner of Mee Sup Pipin and ask her about the origin of Mee Sup Pipin
According to Georgina, Mee Sup Pipin was originally known as Mee Sup Inobong, as their outlet is located at Inobong area. As they becoming more and more famous, many shops at Donggongon area start serving the same type of noodle and also named it as Mee Sup Inobong. The DO (District officer) drop by one of the shop and tried their version of Mee Sup Inobong and disappointed with the food quality. Later when he realised they are mere copycats of the original Mee Sup Inobong, he meet up with Georgina and advice her to choose a new name for her business and register it so other shops around Donggongon cannot use the same name again. The name Inobong cannot be used because Inobong is name of an area and cannot be registered.
Georgina decide to named it as Mee Sup Pipin as remembrance for her late Grandfather, Anthony Pipin. She learned the recipe from her late grandfather and think it’s appropriate to named it after her grandfather. Since then, Mee Sup Pipin become one of the most popular eateries in Donggongon and peoples come from all over Kota Kinabalu to taste this tasty noodle.
