Please Read This! My Missing Photos....

... I just wanted to tell you guys that due to my own carelessness, I've accidentally deleted most of the photos that I've uploaded to Google Album Archive recently & with no additional backup I can't seem to recover them at all. So if you view my past posts and there seems to be missing photos from them, I do apologize beforehand for that. I'll try to update them with newer photos should I drop by said places again in the future. So sorry folks... 😢😢😢

Latest Updates: Thankfully I found a way to recover most of my missing pictures (but not all I'm afraid) albeit maybe in a much lower resolution & quality so I apologize again for that. But at least its something right? 😊😊

Six Stars Steamboat Restaurant

I’ve actually been to this restaurant a number of times now but have only managed to snap some pictures recently because I kept forgetting to do so during our previous visits (for some reason, my mind can’t seem to register the fact that a steamboat eatery is also an eatery. I know… silly me!). By the way, they’re located at Batu 3, Jalan Sin Onn (right in front of SJKC Hing Hwa).  

Totted as the so-called ‘top’ steamboat establishment in Tawau (because there were so few and far between), I give them that credit when it comes to their variety of food. Their selection of meat (plain or marinated), fish and vegetables were very commendable, as do their pre-cooked dishes. So far they provide the usual chicken broth or tom yam as your soup based, as well as some desserts. But as do other steamboat places, I do appreciate it if they do not eye me like I’m about to steal something everytime I got up to their buffet tables (by the ‘captains’ of the restaurant). I do understand that they do not want people to waste their food but I also would prefer to eat in peace. Also, it’s good to note that they have made-to-order dishes as well should you’re not in the mood to cook for yourself (and sweating profusely as you’re doing so).

Other than that…

Food – 4/5 (they have the best variety so far)
Price – 3/5 (the last time I was there, they charge RM38 per adult)
Service – 3/5 (please relax a bit okay since not all of us are food hoarders)
Décor – 4/5 (at least the place was very spacious and lively)  
Location – 3/5 (they’re quite visible from the main road due to their colourful bright lights)

Little Western

Here’s a quick entry on a food stall located at Restoran Warisan Ibu, within the Bazhong commercial area. Honestly, I was never really that interested in eating their western dishes before (same old same old I guess). But an FB post by a friend has piqued my interest in stopping by since they’d recently added a new menu which features burgers. And you know who loves them more than anything else (*cough my partner *cough). So off we went and tried out their Grilled Beef Burger and Chicken Burger (mine was deep fried though instead of grilled). I initially wanted their Fish Burger but they're out of those (or so they say anyway). And the burgers that we did ate were alright and succulent although not that remarkable. Price was quite reasonable as our burgers came with fries and a sunny side up egg on top of them. They also offer other burgers such as Lamb Burger, several types of Mix Burgers and Soft Shell Crab Burger (yup, you heard me!) should you’re interested in such variety.

All in all I say…

Food – 3/5 (I’m still curious about their fish burger though)
Price – 3/5 (still very affordable)
Service – 4/5 (was surprisingly very fast during our stop over)
Décor – 3/5 (nothing much to comment here)  
Location – 3/5 (the restaurant is also right behind the Astro’s main office in Tawau)

Restoran Bunga Cafe

I was craving for some good rice dishes one day when my partner suggested a new place that he’d recently noticed while cruising along the Fajar Complex area. Formerly an extension of Tawau Kopitiam (cutting cost there I see?), the eatery is sandwiched between the latter and an auto shop called Wawasan Auto (if I’m not mistaken).   

When we arrived at 10.00am on a non busy work day, we were initially disappointed to find out that they were not ready to serve any customers yet (which was surprising since it can be considered as late by Tawau’s standards). But since the waiter was very apologetic about it, we decided to come back at noon and wasted no time in ordering their Nasi Kukus Ayam Berempah and Nasi Kuning Ayam. Our patience were not in vain as we discovered that both dishes were pretty delectable and well-seasoned. I especially like the generous gravy that came with my dish, as it was savoury and not too spicy, just the way I preferred it. I’d also ordered an Ais Kepal off their limited menu but you guys should give that one a miss since they were too stingy with their chocolate sauce (the make-or-break ingredient in any good Ais Kepal) hence the very bland taste.  

In addition…

Food – 3/5 (so far so good but the Ais Kepal needs to be improve pronto)
Price – 3/5 (reasonably mid-range)
Service – 4/5 (at least they were pretty attentive so kudos for that)
Décor – 3/5 (just your simple, clean cut ‘kedai kopi’)  
Location – 3/5 (they’re also right behind the ASNB Tawau branch office)
