Eating It Fresh

One in a while when one can get to eat fresh catch from the sea, it is the best choice not miss. Usually fresh food catch from the sea is available at places near the sea. One of the best place to experience fresh fish from the sea is at Kota Kinabalu, Kuala Perlis, Kuala Kedah, Kota Bharu, Kuala Terengganu, Kuantan to name a few.
If you visit Kota Kinabalu, don’t miss the ikan bakar stall (fish grilled over charcoal fire) at the open market behind the so called Philipines Market (local don’t want it to be called so). The market is open from evening till night and fresh fish are sold ad a reasonable price. Fresh vegetables and other village products can also be found.
At one end of the market there are stalls selling fresh grilled fish and it is eaten with rice. Just sit at one of the stalls and make your choice. Price is reasonable for something fresh.
