Overall: 3/5 - Hard for me to evaluate the taste as it is pretty common to me as I have tasted a far greater than this which left me without any words to describe it. As for the price, this is the cheapest for a chicken BBQ I have been to so far.

Outlook: 3/5 Creativity: 3/5 Taste: 2/5 Price: 4/5 Overall: 3/5 - They trying to cover up the gamey lamb taste but have a heavy spicy taste. They successfully did it but I do not feel like eating a lamb anymore. So I think it is good for people for a person who likes to try a lamb but without tasting a single bit of the gamey taste.

Overall: 4/5 - Slight crispy chicken which brings out the unique different taste than the normal Chinese chicken rice we used to have. The amount of chicken given is not stingy at all. It some sense this is an economical and delicious food which is way better than a normal chicken rice.

Final words for my final post about Kota Kinabalu trip and also my East Malaysia trip. As usual, I rent a car here. It is a Myvi which cost me RM110/day. The boss supposed to give me his rented car to me but in the end given me his cool Myvi with large woofer and mini LCD tv in it. Plus...with leather seats too! Lucky me!
About the stay, I stayed in two hotels at Kota Kinabalu because it will be quite bored to stay in just one hotel through my 5 days. First is the Celyn Hotel, it is a new hotel at KK City Mall. Very decent hotel with internet facilities. However, this place is jam packed during at night because it is beside the mall. As a hotel guest here, I…

Overall: 3/5 - It is a life saver when have this during the super hot weather. Regarding the quality and the taste, the ice is still quite thick but the most the most letdown is still the watermelon seed. It is annoying when you drink this dessert and it has so many watermelon seeds which hardly to eat and swallow.

Tuaran Mee Restoran, Kota Kinabalu

Since I am already at Tuaran after visited Rumah Terbalik, we have long heard about the famous Tuaran Mee. Therefore, I brought all of them to Tuaran Mee Restoran which is specialized in this mee.

Overall: 3/5 - What special about Tuaran Mee is their noodle gives you a slight crispy feeling. It reminds me when I eat Mamee Instant Noodle. So it is quite delicious for the first few bites but after near end, you will feel that you can't go on because the noodle is too dry. However, the yellow wine gravy can last the wetness for a while.

Overall: 3/5 - Same noodle. The only difference is the meat are BBQ pork and roasted pork. This noodle is much drier. Quite hard to swallow after that.

In my opinion, it is not really worthwhile to visit this place since there is only one house is upside down and you are not allow to take picture in the house. Hopefully, my friends do enjoy themselves somehow.

Overall: 3/5 - It taste as good as I had in Miri. What is most important to me in a Kuay Chap is the pig's innards must be very clean. So this restaurant done it very well. Secondly, the "kuay" must not taste flour. It should be soft and tender with little chewing job to do. They done this right again. Lastly, the soup must have the right amount of the herbal taste and must not be too salty. I will say their soup is not very strong herbal taste but at least it is not too salty.
