Food Hunting List: Kota Kinabalu

Hello, thank you for your visit!

I hope you are able to get some ideas from reading my posts when planning your travel to places like Kota Kinabalu, Hong Kong, Japan etc.

Instead of the must-try or famous lists of food to try, I thought it would be helpful to have a summary for each travelogue, listing all the food places I personally hunted (and what I thought of them), be it GOOD or BAD (so you will know which to avoid).

Without further ado, this is the #FoodHuntingListKK.

  • Order: 2 portions of Tuaran Mee and 3 Layer Tea
  • Verdict: Noodles was very eggy and springy. Char siew was tender and sweet. All in all a good balance between savory and sweet. I liked how their arrange the 3 layer tea (unlike those in KL). It was an exciting experience to enjoy my tea both in layers and in mixture.

  • Order: Fish head consomme with prawn tortellini and chinese watercress, 220g medium rare black angus ribeye with caramel balsamic shallot juice, seared portobello mushroom, garlic mashed potatoes
  • Verdict: Consomme was oily and less flavourful than we thought, though prawn tortellini itself was decent. Ribeye was tender and perfectly cooked to our request, all the better with caramel balsamic shallot juice which totally enhanced the flavour. Mushrooms were juicy and flavourful, mashed potatoes were simply lovely.

  • Order: 1 portion of wine mee sua and 1 portion of yee mee
  • Verdict: Mee sua and wine soup were good, though chicken was dry and tough. Yee mee was a disappointment: noodle was not fresh, soup was mediocre and meat portion was pitiful.
