Kedai Kopi Lotus, Kota Kinabalu

Kota Kinabalu doesn't have huge hawker center like you will see in Peninsular Malaysia or Kuching but I have to reckon that the best hawker center in Kota Kinabalu is in Kedai Kopi Lotus. Kedai Kopi Lotus themselves do serve their own food which was very terrible and beyond edible state. So do not eat anything from this restaurant. You just pick the stalls beside this restaurant. There are 4 stalls which I will introduce one by one to you but the only stall which will not be introduced is the stall which is selling Guo Tie ( a kind of dumplings) -  not my favorite.
The best and the most popular stall of all is this chicken wing stall. Everyone is there lining up for them either taking away or dining there. You may need to wait for 15-20 minutes for it. However, it will be definitely worthwhile.
RM2.65/pc for this chicken wing. The reason it is taste so good is because of the perfect combination of the honey and the BBQ fragrance. They blend it so well inside the fresh and tender chicken meat. Every each bite will immersed the BBQ fragrant and some honey juices out into your mouth. The feeling is sensational. 
Ranked second of the local favorites will be this stall's grilled stingray. They do not just sell stingray, they have other fishes too. You can choose any fish you desired in their cold storage and he will weight them to tell you the price. If you agree then only he will proceed to cook.
The sambal and the seasoning are the reason for their grilled stingray to taste so good. If you prefer a little sourish kick in it like I do, they will provide lime for you to squeeze on it. Apart of that, the meat had a little crispy delight which gives you a little cracking sound into your mouth. This grilled stingray cost me RM28.00
Not to forget is this Pork satay stall. They only sell pork and no other meat. They are really the expert in it.
RM1.20/stick is not cheap at all. Almost double the price from what is selling here at Kluang. However, I love the way how they prepare the meat. The meat has a mixture of fatty part and non fatty part in it. This gives the extra fragrance into the whole satay when the fatty part will squeeze out some juices which will definitely awe you. The only thing they need to improve is their satay sauce which was very terrible,.No spicy taste, lack of peanut taste and just contain sourish taste. Doesn't fit the satay at all.
Overall, this is a great place for some junk food. However, be early because the seat here is very limited.
