Sinalau barkas. BBQ wild boar.

Posted in Around Kota Kinabalu by 1davidstella on November 23, 2015

BBQ wild boar. We call it “sinalau barkas”.

There are a few stalls serving sinalau barkas long the mountain road to Mount Kinabalu. We seeked out this one at Kg Kelawat (Kelawat village) which serves wild boar burgers. Unfortunately, the burger guy wasn’t around. We had the BBQ ribs and sides instead. At RM20 per kg, it was an affordable and delicious meal.

A hawker selling food on the backstreets. This is still a common sight in Penang. They are largely “extinct” in most other cities and urban towns in Malaysia where they operate in hawker centres and markets. Penang is considered a hawker food heaven among the Malaysian Chinese population and deservedly so.

The cendul is a favourite Malaysian dessert. The Famous Penang Road Teochew cendul shop is a family business with a history that dates back to 1936. A must-visit destination for travelers to Penang!

Traveller and photographer {Ian R of UK} interacting with the locals at the waterfront night market, Kota Kinabalu.

~Lightbox~ More photos in my Bazaar-KK City set.

The night market consists of a wet section for fish and other produce from the sea, and a dry section for vegetables and fruits. There is also a section for hawker food. The atmosphere is friendly and the people eager to interact. Although Malay is commonly spoken at this market, simple English is widely understood. They like you, Ian.

She was selling an assortment of seaweeds, including the popular caulerpa (commonly called sea grapes, green caviar, “ar-arosep” or “lato” in the Philippines). Read about this grapelike seaweed on Wikipedia here.The woman said the seagrapes are eaten fresh.

I found a recipe to make a salad from this seaweed here. I also found a blog with an entry about this salad “lato” here. The photos look delicious!

I spent an hour at the market, with a traveler and photographer from U.K. {I think you will remember this stall at the market, Ian.} We enjoyed ourselves, sampled some jack fruit and fresh coconut water, too. Oh, we normally drink our coffee in small glass mugs like the one in the photo. Coffee cups belong in the hotels, cafes and restaurants. 🙂 .

Kinarut is a town located about 17 km from Kota Kinabalu and just a few km from Putatan. It is one of the stops for the North Borneo Railway {out of commission for upgrading works}. A small town with just two rows of wooden shophouses and two rows of new concrete ones, the population here is 15,716 (circa 2006) consisting mainly Bajaus and Dusuns.

Kinarut is one of three places in Sabah with “kina” as part of its name. The word probably comes from the early connection with the Chinese. “Cina” is Malay for chinese. The other two are Kota Kinabalu (which derive its name from Mt Kinabalu, the 5th highest mountain in South East Asia) and Kinabatangan River (the longest river in Sabah).

#Indian Gulai Sotong.. squid curry.
#Sotong Bakar .. Barbeque squid.
#Barbecued squid with tomato vinaigrette .. I think this is European.
