Sandakan ... Some food binging!

Yours truly, together with his missus, paid a recent visit to missus hometown. According to my archive of photos, it's been almost 4 years since I came here...

So, have a lot changed? Not really. Okay, it pretty much depends on where you are... But more on that some other time.

This is about food. So... erm... something different than the ordinary burgers that one finds in McD's or Burger King. 

This is called G Burger!
 Quite a selection too!
 So this is what we got, all lined up... with the fries (not as salty as ... others) to the right.
 I really cannot remember what I ordered as I know I was kinda knackered and slept a wee bit as yours truly has been working late nights prior to arriving here in SDK.
 Missus obviously couldn't resist the pineapple in her burger...
 Something that my brother in law ordered...
 Oh yeah, it ain't that big, btw. Think A & W size... But certainly very different from the norm.

Thereafter onwards is normal food, unless you count on eating Bak Kut Teh with seafood as different. It certainly is a very interesting experience as we peninsular folks are used with the Pork version.

And finally, as SDK is a seaside town, you obviously gotta have a go with a traditional Seafood Rice, right? :)
So the below comes from the very famous Sim Sim Seafood Restaurant.
And  ... something called Ikan Bakar, or Grilled Fish. This stall is located just off Sim Sim, in a small market. What makes this so grand is the combination of the grilled fish and ... THE sauce! Many grilled fish stalls/restaurant have failed this test!
The End.
