We come here whenever we want crabs. Their crabs are the cheapest in town (RM18/kg or US$5.50/kg) but lately its always sold out (as is the case tonight) even when we get there at 7:30pm, or what's left is too small. The food's pretty good (for KK standard) and prices very reasonable. It's casual, and most people prefer to sit out under the stars. But be warned; they are always full and its a long wait for the food. Tonight, being a Sunday night, we waited ONE hour.
The restaurant is at the far corner of the row of shophouses behind the well-known Supertanker Restaurant in Penampang.
I doubt you'll find this anywhere in Mongolia. It's fried pork with a yummy heavy cream sauce that's slightly hot.
We brought this to the restaurant (Hubby's friend caught it today in Kudat, north of KK) and it was GREAT! My favorite part of any fish is the dorsal fin and the surrounding flesh, which is especially smooth and flavorful.
Baby geoduck clams
I always find baby geoduck clams bland, unlike the bigger ones. So much shell and so little meat. It almost makes me guilty eating it.
Wey's favorite. I didn't even get a bite. He said to make sure I get the omelette in the picture-other places usually don't show off the heat of the cast-iron plate this way.
This veg, known locally as sayur manis ('sweet veg') in Malay or sujaicai in Chinese, is native only to Sabah and is a must-eat for all locals and tourists. We love it simply fried with garlic. Crunchy and sweet with a mild, unique flavor.
For those on Lipitor, the fine shreds are egg yolks cooked in butter! Yummy, especially with the crunchy fried curry leaves but a little too oily.
I wouldn't touch escargots (once was enough, especially with blue cheese) but these are from the sea...quite tasteless actually but they're fun to eat. Gives a good chew (not much meat though) and the fermented bean curd (yes, Chinese blue cheese) dip was very salty but sooo good!
You get them out with a toothpick.
The total bill for 9 people came to RM167 only! That includes a small charge for cooking our fish. Definitely reasonable. I'd say its 8/10.
