Sunset at Tanjung Aru in my hometown of Kota Kinabalu
It's been 2 days since I've been back in Melbourne and I'm still missing my home and family back in KK! I honestly feel like this is probably the best Summer break I've had yet (despite all the amazing ones I've had in the past).
It seemed like those 8 weeks flew by unreasonably quick. Lots happened, which included:
- Flying to Penang for a week with the family
- Then straight to Singapore just for the weekend to catch a concert
- Also to Kuching for a friend's wedding and many catchups
So much good food with plenty of hilarious/treasured company during each of those trips. To make this post bearable for all of you, I had to seriously cut out a LOT of the pictures from the holiday, which was quite painful (blogger woes, lol). The following are just my favourites and are all absolutely DELICIOUS!
Anyway, if you like what you see and want to know the specific location of where I ate any of the food below, it's easier to just shoot me an e-mail. This was a really fun post for me to do and I sure hope you enjoy the pictures too.
Indian Poori with Curry and Dhal
Black Pepper Chicken Puff, Crispy Yam Puff, Glutinous Coconut Puff (with "nian gao") and Pandan Lotus Paste with Salted Egg Puff
Kway Teow Soup
Penang "White Curry" Mee
Penang Hokkien Mee (aka Prawn Mee)
Penang Assam Laksa
Penang Char Kway Teow
Fried Oyster Omelette
If you haven't been to Imperial Treasure Super Peking Duck (at Paragon on Orchard Road), you must make a booking to eat there ASAP! Despite its unbelievably tacky name, it really was absolutely remarkable in too many ways. I speak highly of this restaurant for a reason and you will not regret your meal here.
HOT DAYUM. My pictures are not doing the duck justice AT ALL!
Chef's Fried Rice (AMAZING as well)
"Otak-Otak" aka Fish Mousse
Location: Xu Jun Sheng (Long Ji), Joo Chiat Road
Meat Patty with Salted Fish
Wheat Grass "C" Peng
Teh "C" Special Peng
Nasi Ayam Penyet
Fish Slice Noodles
Sarawak Kolo Mee
Honestly, my ultimate favourite Laksa of them all. This bowl at Little Sky was surprisingly better than the "famous" one at Foody Goody -- YUMMM!
