Thought of the day– “You don’t have to cook fancy or complicated masterpieces-just good food from fresh ingredients.”-Julia Child

(This particular restaurant is one of our best recommendations of eateries in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah for your Ramadhan 2017 Sungkai/berbuka puasa)

In Thailand, Chim Chum (pronounced as t͡ɕîm t͡ɕùm) is regard as street food. To produce Chim Chum, a charcoal stove (clay pot) is filled with broth. The burning charcoal will get the broth boiling and that’s the right moment to put uncooked food inside it. People in Laos and Cambodia have long been using this cooking method. It’s about using that hot pot to dip something for a while (Chim) or quickly dip it (Chum). Today, Chim Chum is still being used but in a contemporary environment, such as in Steamboat Bakar Sepanggar Restaurant, Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia.

Thought of the day: ‘Dessert is like a feel-good song and the best ones make you dance.’-Chef Edward Lee

People talked and keep writing good reviews about this place, a restaurant named as HJ (Haji) Shariff Cendol. Their Cendol is quite famous (since 1930’s) and we wouldn’t want to miss the opportunity to try it, we’re in Seremban anyway. We want to see more ‘colors’ of Seremban, this time around in its edible ‘items’. We hope to see and experience that said ‘colors’ at Haji Shariff Cendol @ Seremban, Negeri Sembilan Darul Khusus. For the record, their Cendol is ranked at #1 by TripAdvisor reviewers and that put it as the best dessert in the whole of Seremban Town!
