Kam Ling Seafood Restaurant@Tawau

My second time having seafood in Kam Ling seafood restaurant in Sabindo part of Tawau. The first time was when we stopped by Sabindo for an early dinner on the way back from Maliau Basin.

Sea weed appetizer. Sweet. Not to my liking. I would have preferred jelly fish.

Hoi Dai Gai (sea chicken, Maori sea perch). My first time trying this fish. The texture was quite firm and not smooth like most fish. Nice and fresh, but I really don't think I will fork out close to RM140 for a 1 kg fish like this again. A bit over-rated if you ask me.

Mantis shrimps with salted egg yolk coating. Nice, fresh and sweet. My most favorite dish of all.

Stir fried Sabah vege with garlic...heard a lot of about this vege but still not too sure what it is. It's a little like paku pakis (fern shoot)- nice, fresh and crunchy. Liked it a lot.

Edit: I have been told that Sabah Vege is actually the young tip of sayur manis bush. I did some googling and found some info here and here.

Fruit platter, on the house.
