21 august 2010 – during evening, i tagged along a travel blogger and another friend to the filipino night market, which is located along the kota kinabalu waterfront, opposite the le meridien hotel.  rarely will i walk around this area, much less to eat at the stalls. but i think it is worth a visit.


tourists, braving the hygienically-challenged food and drinks. having said that, i have personally eaten a bowl of soto daging and drank a glass of leong fun susu at one of the stalls here without any dire consequences. maybe i have a strong stomach the food is clean after all.


local dishes

chicken wings, anyone?

lobster, for around RM80 – 100.

local kuehs


actually, it is a good idea to get your fresh produce in the cool of the night.

spanner crab. a first for me.

chilli padi, spicy hot!

barbequed seafood in abundance. pictured here is the tiger prawn.

out of curiosity, we tried the barbequed spanner crab with chilli and lime. sweet and succulent.

i was a local tourist for the night, taking in the sight smell and sound of the filipino night market. it was a thoroughly enjoyable experience.
