We have posted an entry about Salut Seafood Restaurant on the old KK Food Reviews foodblog, but we thought we'd redo a new entry about this favourite restaurant of ours here in Kota Kinabalu!

To be exact, it's not exactly in Kota Kinabalu.. here's a description on how to get there by fellow blogger, BeautifulKK.com:
Travel along Jalan Sulaman highway, after some 20 to 30 minutes from Kota Kinabalu City, one is going to pass by Salut Seafood Restaurant. Since it is quite out of the way for us KK-lites, this seafood restaurant is like a hidden gem. The price of seafood here is much cheaper compared with the other big seafood restaurants in the city. Tourists can get here by taxi; no buses up to this place yet. (grammars and spelling edited)
We were here at Salut once again last night, to let our new Japanese tourist friend experience some affordable seafood in Kota Kinabalu.

Tip: Go there in the evening, around 5:00-5:30pm, to view a breathtaking sunset over the river! (when in good weather, of course!) Click here to see us with the beautiful sunset sky there!

Here are the food that we had last night:

Fresh prawns! What better way to taste its freshness than to just have it steamed? Our favourite dish at Salut! We ordered 2KGs of these!

After the fresh steamed prawns, this Sapak (cooked with ginger) is another of our favourite! My favourite, actually! The gravy is perfect when put over the rice!

We've already let our tourist friend try the local veggie, Sabah Veggie a couple of days back, so this time we ordered another local veggie, the Kangkong, cooked with Belacan (shrimp paste) and chilli.

And 1/2 Kilo of each of these 2 clams!

This veggie dish came out last, and after feasting one the other delicious food above, this last dish was just blah for us. We had also ordered for some sea-cucumber to be included in this dish to let our friend try, but apparently it wasn't included. What a disappointment. So advice to you all who wants to come here in the future: don't order so fancy veggie dishes! Haha..

All these, plus, 2 glasses of juice, 2 glasses of cold Chinese Tea, and 2 bowls of rice, the total bill comes up to RM123.10. Considering the portion and number of dishes we had, this is cheap! Even our tourist friend was shocked! Teehee..

*While the food here is cheap, we learned that alcoholic beverages are not quite. Please ask for price before ordering alcoholic beverage, to be on the safe side!*
When it comes to Soto, there are 2 places that we would usually go to here in Kota Kinabalu. One is at the coffeshop in front of All Saints Secondary School in Likas (it's been there ever since I was in All Saints, which is like, a decade ago!).

The other, is here, Kedai Kopi Happy 2, located at Asia City, facing (Peppermint, the Vietnamese restaurant).

This coffeeshop is very popular to especially those working nearby, and would usually be fully packed during lunch hour!

Soto Daging (Beef Noodle Soup) [price:RM4.00]

We think the price is quite cheap and reasonable, isn't it? It's quite fulfilling, too!

But if you don't feel like eating Soto for some reason, there are also a variety of Nasi Campur (Mixed Rice) dishes being sold at this coffeeshop as well!
** Oh my.. this blog was deserted for a LONG time, huh?

Our apologies everyone! It's not that we didn't do any food reviews lately; it's just that there's a problem with the notebook; seems like there's a tr*jan that's blocking us from uploading to our online photo sites, thus no photo uploads for a long time! It blocks our G"*gle, our GMa*l, and Bl*gger too! So troublesome! And we can't just send the notebook for a service because there are so many things to backup just in case, you know.. sucks. But luckily, we have found a temporary site to upload our photos online! :) **

Regarding our previous post about the Indian restaurant, here are what you can have the next time you're there!

You can see not long after you turn into Alamesra from the UMS traffic light

We like this cozy corner! UMS students (or whoever wants to have Indian food) and surf the net at the same time, you can do it here!

And now the delicious food!

The Nasi Briyani. You can have a choice of either chicken or mutton in your rice

Chicken Boxing

Putu Mayam. We don't know a lot of Indian restaurants that sells this, and the shape of their putu mayam is unique, don't you think?

And of course, the dish that you must order when you're here is the Curry Fish Head. This huge portion cost us only around RM25!

And what's so different with this dish compared to others in KK?

The curry spices used are all homemade! Not machine-made okay? So that's a plus in our book!

To those of you who have dined here already, how was your experience? Was it as good as ours? :)
