We were fortunate enough to experience the Windy Season of Mersilou/Kundasang area, which normally starts around July, end in September.
I can't describe more for you how strong the wind was during our stay at Mersilou:
- After kept the charcoal in good order and light up the fire starter, the charcoal then burn to white on the surface in less than 10min -- all by itself without the need to fan at the hot charcoal (which we normally do to escalate the burning).
- I weight 85kg and still can felt the wind was pushing me hard
We had some barbecue lamb, beef skewer, Char Siew, chicken chop and hotdogs as our dinner. See caption of the pictures for more details on the ingredients or marinate. To balance up our meaty meal, I also prepared some Caesar Salad, BBQ Pineapple and pumpkin for the hungry people. Everyone had a full tummy that evening with warm corn soup and we finished with cherries which I bought from Tong Hing Supermarket in KK.
|During the Raya Holiday, by car, we went to Mersilou then Sandakan|
We covered merely 700KM, back-and-forth.
It's a food trip by foodiotkk :D
|Me preparing salad in the kitchen|
|Chef in action XD XD XD|
|I cooked the meat to medium / medium well|
Overdone the meat is a big NO-NO as it would loss the juiciness
|Very comfy Corn Soup, made by BigFish|
|Not salty enough, and need to add some more honey during the barbecue to make it juicier|
A bit overcooked >.<
What not in the pictures / forgot to snap was: BBQ Pineapple (excellent!) and BBQ Pumpkin (Good idea but need to fine tune next time). We also had some cherries and, new product from Tiger Beer -- The Tiger with Lemon, which only contained 2% alcohol and sweet like Shandy!
So here concluded our barbecue dinner... and started another day with magnificent view of the Mount Kinabalu!
