Sabah Street Food

Kota Kinabalu (affectionately known as KK) will be our base for our vacation in West Sabah. One of our initial objectives was to discover Sabah Street Food.

We stayed at Klagan hotel, which is centrally located, and walking distance to nearby food joints and tourist spots. Do pop by our Sabah Itinerary for a list of actions over our 8D7D stay.

Earlier in Singapore, we arrived at Changi Airport in limousine comfort and style. We were invited to try Blacklane’s VIP service. Our luxurious Alphard can comfortably fit “bigger” families, and we did not have to commute in two cabs. You too can book a ride from Blacklane website.

We reached Kota Kinabalu after another 2.5 hours flight. Klagan hotel is in the city center, rooms come with basic amenities and our package came with daily breakfast buffet.

Shopping malls, supermarket and food court near our hotel. We noticed there are a lot of pastries stalls (both upmarket and coffee shop) around. Kids do not have an excuse to go hungry 🙂

Do take note shopping malls close by 8.30 or 9pm, too early for Mummy Mengchoo.

View of KK from Signal Hill Observatory Tower. You can walk from East to West in about 45 minutes.

Mention Sabah, and seafood comes to mind. Even friends from Western Malaysia find Sabah’s seafood cheap 🙂

Tuck in, yummy prawns and crabs. Price is indeed cheaper but we still prefer West Malaysia (and Singapore)’s seafood. Sabah’s seafood is slightly bland. Infact, we found most of the “famous’ food in Sabah so-so only. Decent and tasty, but nothing spectacular.

Good traditional coffee (Kopi) is hard to find too, you might want to consider bringing your own 3-in-1 stockpile. You can find good Teh Tarik everywhere 🙂
