(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.
