First and foremost...

Thank you so much for visiting this humble blog of mine. I'll try to give you guys some good reviews on the local food & sceneries especially from my hometown (yay Tawau, Sabah) so please bear with me ok 😊

Oh and just so you guys know before proceeding...

a) I never travel abroad - so you won't be seeing any posts outside of our beloved country (yet!)

b) I take all of my pictures with my puny, low megapixeled & outdated smartphone - so no professionally taken photos here as well (sad but true)

c) I never got invited to do a review - so my comments are somewhat unbias (for now)

d) I have this ongoing problem with my internet at home so I can only go online at work - so I'm sorry beforehand for any comments that cannot be reply timely (my bad)

e) I don't mind if you guys wanted to use any of my pictures - just as long as you credit this blog as well ok 👍

Also due to my own carelessness, I've accidentally deleted most of the photos that I've uploaded to Google Album Archive recently. Thankfully I found a way to recover most of them (but not all I'm afraid) albeit in a much lower resolution & quality. 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... 😢😢😢

So here goes nothing...

The Bowls

Man… the Kubota Sentral commercial area has really been booming with numerous new eateries as of late. If I were to compare, I’d say that they are comparable to the Plaza 333 in KK (well… maybe not as abundant but we’re getting there). So obviously this particular ‘makan’ place is situated within the area, right next to the Authentic Cafe (that had recently moved there as well from somewhere else).

A vast majority of their menu items were obviously Thai such as the boat noodles, green curries & pad thai while the other half focused more on fusion cuisine. Unfortunately when me and my mum tried them out recently, we were not really in the mood for their boat thingy. Instead, we opted for their Sweet and Sour Chicken Rice and Tom Yum Spaghetti (hey, at least I did picked something that is Thai inspired right?). Both dishes were pretty good and scrumptious but their pricing can be considered a bit expensive than your usual, average eatery. I also had their Leche Flan (as my initial choice for Mango Sticky Rice was not available) and although I do know that flan was supposed to be a very sugary dessert, the amount of sweetness within the latter threw me off at first. But I still managed to polish it off so it wasn’t all bad. It was actually yummy but a tad too sweet for my liking.

Restoran Kampung Taste - Singgang

The ‘kampung’ taste that this Fajar Complex eatery (they’re on the same row as the Nationwide Express office) referring to is the local cuisine; specifically Buginese dishes. Since a vast majority of Buginese resides in Tawau, it’s no surprise that such eatery exist. But a recent visit to their FB page saw a number of dishes not exclusively from the ethnicity being prepared as well such as Ambuyat. So it’s good to know that they’re expanding their kampung theme menu.

Let me tell you guys straight up that if you’re hoping for the usual Nasi Goreng or Mee Goreng, than I’m afraid you need to find another place to eat since the place only serves local kampung dishes. When me and my partner were there for a late lunch, they were almost out of their pre-cooked dishes (Tawaurians sure are fast when it comes to good food) so we tried out their Nasi Ayam Penyet Balado (I think that is what they called it) and Nasi Ayam Lengkuas instead. Both we pretty good and flavourful (with the sambal from the Ayam Penyet on the tangy & spicy side) but the Ayam Lengkuas that I had was sourer than I thought it would be. Then again, I’ll probably be back in the future to sample their other pre-cooked dishes so stay tune for any updates.

Weijiabao Noodles House

Ever since we passed by them (several times) whenever we were in the Kubota Sentral commercial area (they’re on the same row as #Ekae restaurant), my mom has made it clear that she intended to try them out and we finally did it one afternoon. Well, it was actually because our initial choice for lunch that day has an off day so my mom suggested this place instead.

Going through their menu is a bit of a challenge (at least for me but not my mom) since I can’t seem to familiarized myself with some of the dishes Chinese names. So to guarantee that I will not be ordering something that I might end up not liking, I decided to go for a safer choice which was the Nasi Lemak Sayap Ayam. Or so I thought anyway. The sambal that accompanied the dish tasted exactly like the ones you usually bought in a can from the supermarket. And although the rice was pretty fragrant, the fried chicken was just err… not that good. It was oily and the batter was just plain weird tasting. You pretty much tasted the flour and nothing else. But my mom had a better luck than me since she enjoys her Wa Dan Mee Hoon more than I did. Well, just my (bad) luck I guess. It is also good to note that the place do serve pork in their menu.
