Thought of the day-“I love food, I love eating.”-Robin Gibb

We both love seafood and we recently had this opportunity to visit Kampung Nelayan Seafood restaurant. There’s nothing else to do there, of course, other than to enjoy the delicious food served by the talented Chefs. Kampung Nelayan Seafood Restaurant is located about 8.3 KM from Kota Kinabalu City Center. There are 2 main dining areas here namely the Main/Common Dining Hall and the Puteri VIP Rooms. In the main/common Dining Hall, customers are to choose either having that ala carte servings or to indulge in their generous Buffet BBQ Steamboat. We had both and for the ala carte, we had it in our comfy Puteri VIP Room, with full privacy, away from the crowd!

Rasa Utara is well-known for its mouth-watering dishes of Northern Malaysia and we both still can’t forget how great the dishes that we had in previous visit (November 2016). We were in Kuala Lumpur again recently and decided to indulge in more Rasa Utara’s delicacies, this time around we came with a guest from that came all the way from United States, John Eliakim (Kim). This was the second visit for Kim, he’d been to one of Rasa Utara branch in 2014. He was delighted when we invited him to come along. There are 3 Rasa Utara restaurants, each located in Mid Valley Megamall, Berjaya Times Square and IOI City Mall, Putrajaya. For this particular visit, we chose Rasa Utara at Mid Valley Megamall.

Rediscovering Makan Time

“Food is our common ground, a universal experience.”-James Beard

Our culinary journey continues at Rasa Utara, Berjaya Times Square, Kuala Lumpur. We were here for the first time in 2015 and we do keep coming back for more. Recently, we were in Kuala Lumpur and we knew that we must fulfill our cravings for authentic Northern Malaysian cuisine. And so we did. This time around we had so many great dishes, in one go. Greedy? Yes and no. We live in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah and it is not every day that we get to go to Kuala Lumpur. We are unfortunate to not have Rasa Utara branch in our own city. Having the opportunity to dine at Rasa Utara is one golden moment for us. Why? We believe in the brand’s ability to serve the best authentic Northern Malaysian delicacies. We are fully aware that this is the only brand through its 3 restaurants, ably to to satisfy our cravings for Northern Malaysian Cuisine.

Al Fresco Restaurant is situated by the side of a beautifully landscaped sea-view pool. Al Fresco patrons enjoys outdoor dining with spectacular scenery and a relaxing atmosphere. The extensive selection of pasta and seafood dishes and famous wood-fired pizzas are complemented by a lively cocktail menu. We went here twice, both for lunch, on the first and second day of our stay at Magellan Sutera Resort. Though not that a grand restaurant, it is still worth visiting for its great food and affordable prices. Al Fresco is one of the many restaurants in Magellan Sutera Resort (Sutera Harbour Resort, Kota Kinabalu, Sabah).

“To the ruler, the people are heaven; to the people, food is heaven.”-(ancient Chinese proverb)

Silk Garden Chinese Restaurant was featured in Malaysia Tatler’s Best Restaurants list of 2009. Recently (2016), it’s once again in the list. Repeating the same triumph indicates that this particular restaurant is worth visiting and so we did. We had such great moments, eating the best food at this Chinese Restaurant.
