The Original Homemade Kueh Teow With Deep-Fried Pork (Since 1940), Sandakan

Enough of fancy restaurant and just taste the real local delicacies at their wet market! This is the original homemade kueh teow with deep-fried pork which they have been running this business since 1940. Pretty amazing where they already last for three generations.

This is the only stall in the market with big sign-board like this.

Overall: 3/5 - In Sandakan, this is the general used glass for hot Teh-C and it is very common for the local to order a hot Teh-C. The Teh-C here is really super delicious. Not the best I had so far but it is still a drink that you shouldn't miss at Sandakan. The price is slightly at the steep.

Finish it with the Fried Pork as the toppings.

Overall: 3/5 - I have fried chicken all the time but rarely hear there is a fried pork. But today I tried it and I love it! Pretty fragrant and well fried pork with smooth kueh teow to accompany with it. It is really a small bowl with nothing much in it but it does taste real good.

This is a place you definitely should not miss out or you will have real regret for failing to taste the real local delicacy. This place has limited tables to seat and everyone seat on the long bench with an oblong table and share with each other. It reminds me about my school days where I had my bento on such bench and table as well.

Well, this is a good start for my Sandakan food adventure! Hooray!

Total Damage: RM8.60
Ambiance: 2/5
Service: 3/5
Food Serving Speed: Moderate
Recommended?: Highly recommended.

Business Hours: 7.00am onwards until all the fried pork completely sold. Usually it is easily sold out before noon. No specific off day. So see your luck. Good luck!

Tamarind Springs @ Jalan TAR, Ampang

Price: 2/5
Overall: 3/5 - It is also known as their signature Symphony of Starters, which takes you across the breadth of Indochinese cuisine with Vietnamese shrimp crystal rolls, lemongrass prawns, Cambodian-style deep-fried shrimp cakes and minced chicken on cinnamon sticks. All served with a variety of piquant sauces. The plate is just nice for 2 pax but the price is too expensive for that small portion.

This is a chicken tomyam clear soup with coconut meat in it. Very delicious and creative way to make it. The coconut meat is the highlight of the entire soup. It just gave the soup an extra coconut fragrance in it and of course, they are edible. Do not worry, the soup is not too spicy.

Magnum Cafe @IOI City Mall, Putrajaya

Overall: 4/5 - It contains of cashew meringue, Mascarpone cream, honey balsamic cream served with white chocolate dipped vanilla Magnum topped with freeze dried raspberries and fresh strawberries. My suggestion is to mix them all together including the ice cream itself otherwise by eating the ice cream alone will be too sweet. Once you mixed them all together, the magic comes. The sensational taste of creamy, crunchy, a little sourish kick and sweetness combining all together to create a wonderful ice cream dessert. Definitely is a must order dessert when you are there.
