Tong Hing Cafe @Tong Hing Supermarket, Kota Kinabalu

During my one week stay in Kota Kinabalu, I found out that there is a high class supermarket in Kota Kinabalu which is known as Tong Hing Supermarket. It has been operating in Kota Kinabalu since 1959. This supermarket selling all imported groceries, meats and products. You can get almost everything over here that that you usually see them in overseas but in a much higher price. For example, Pura milk is sold at RM39.90 and their bacon is sold at RM4000. This supermarket is definitely meant for the expatriate. What they usually need back in their home country is available here.
They do have bakery and pastries to sell too. I find that their bread and cakes are somehow still acceptable. Nothing memorable ones that is worth to mention about.
Eggs Benedict Set @RM31.90++
Outlook: 4/5
Creativity: 3/5
Taste: 2/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 2/5 - This set comes with tea or coffee but it is still expensive for a plate of egg benedict especially the taste is not impressive at all. The saltiness from the cheese is good enough to lift up the taste but together with the ham which is salty as well, the whole thing is nothing but saltiness. The ham should not be having too much salt. Let the saltiness from the cheese alone to do the magic. This will bring up the fragrance from the cheese combine with the meat.

Movenpick Rum & Raisin @RM17.90++
Outlook: 2/5
Creativity: 3/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 2/5 - Movenpick ice cream doesn't let me down as always. The rum kick is so strong and combining with the sourish delight from the raisin which makes me become alert all the while when I was having it. I wish to try their Tiramisu next round. However, this is just a scoop and already cost almost RM20.00 which is too expensive.

Overall, I find it this place is cater specially for the expatriate and I would not recommend this place because everything in there is just way too expensive for a normal citizen like us to spend.
