Restoran & Chalet Anjung Seri @ Torong Soko, Pitas

HALAL | ALL-DAY DINING | MALAY CUISINE | PITAS

Stopped by at this restaurant & village-style accommodation to have a lunch. The restaurant is built partly on the beach, so a beautiful seaview is guaranteed. Unfortunately all rooms in the chalet which is just 50m away from the restaurant, is fully booked by a company until end of the year, so only food is available at the moment! Sea view is free though :D

Sambal (chili paste) Prawn (RM12)
Despite a little bit spicy. this plate of prawn is definitely fresh and delicious, best to eat together with rice!

Kangkung Belacan (RM8)
This is the reason why I don't want to post this blog last week, kangkung (water spinach) was a sensitive issue during the second week of January 2014 in Malaysia!

"Kampung" Fried Rice (RM6)
Again it is related to "kangkung" because "Kampung" Fried Rice use a few ingredients which includes kangkung, ikan bilis (anchovies) and bird eye chili. Very nice I would say, one of the best fried rice I had in years (probably I was too hungry by that time!)

HOW TO GET THERE:
Drive from Kota Kinabalu to Pitas would take approximately 3-4 hours, via KK-Kota Marudu road, then follow Kota Marudu - Pitas Road to reach this quiet town.
