Restoran Seafood Sim-Sim, Sandakan

Image
After the bad experience at Restoran Ocean King Seafood, I just can't give myself up to find a better seafood restaurant to replace my disappointment. So I have found Restoran Seafood Sim-Sim. This restaurant is having the same concept which is built above the sea water so called Kelong style. There are two similar restaurants here which is called Restoran Seafood Sim-Sim 88 and it is located on the right of this restaurant.

Overall: 3/5 - I am not really a fan of sweet and sour because usually the taste always does not reach the meat. Same goes to this dish as well. However, the meat is really good. So big and fat!

The Mile 1 1/2 Market, Sandakan

About Sandakan specialty, I am always proud to introduce this noodle stall which is located at The Mile 1 1/2 Market. Their noodle is so special enough which you will not find it at Klang Valley. It is a very small stall which they only have two oblong tables which are linked together. We all seat together with other customers in a long bench which is so similar like our school days.

This is their handmade mee hoon accompany with delicious handmade BIG prawn dumplings or known as wan tan. Unlike in Klang Valley where most of the stalls served a stingy portion of wantan in it.

Restoran Ocean King Seafood, Sandakan

It does not need to study a rocket science to know a restaurant which is meant to bait the tourist but somehow I still ended up in there. The place is called Restoran Ocean King Seafood. Pretty frustrated for me at that time.

Overall: 2/5 - Yes, their clams are quite big in size but I am not really impress with the taste of the ginger and onion which are barely reach the meat.

Overall: 2/5 - Only one way to cook them which is steamed. So nothing special about this dish. But one thing for sure is you are advised not to eat the sea snails without the special sauce because it taste so raw. But once you have the sauce which is spicy and sour with slightly sweetness in it, this will be a great dish for you.

Sweets Tick Beans, Sandakan

Today I will share another quite special and unique dessert which is available in Sandakan only (as far as I know). This dessert is available at Sweets Tick Beans. While the special dessert is called Lai Lou Fa or in direct translation into English is known as "Old Milk Flower". Yeah...it did sound weird but never mind, the most important is the dessert itself.
