We scored a bag of rambutans and mangosteens while walking around town. Our appetisers. The staff there was most alert. Upon seeing us peeling the fruits, they immediately brought empty buckets over to our table for the skins and seeds disposal. A few ordered Fresh Coconuts as drinks while others shared 4 bottles of beer.
The live seafood we chose from the displayed tanks was served as:-
Steamed Seven Star Grouper (Ching-cheng-7-sing-pan). We adopted the belief that must take the chance to eat this type of fish in East Malaysia as over here, in the Peninsular, heard the price more than doubles. Unfortunately, our fish was a tad undercooked rendering small parts of the smooth succulent meat stick stubbornly to the bones.
Our bill:- (the list on the left is the itemised billing. I have arranged the above dishes accordingly. Just cannot recall what is the 5th item on the list.)
To remind self and for those who may be curious, we stayed here in Tawau which housed the Travel Agency that arranged our trip to here .Not too shabby for a standard room without window for RM90.00 huh. (oops a friend just informed it was RM100.00)
