Malaysian Food in Borneo: Delicious Eats On Gaya Street

Optimized-poe_clachiandric

Everywhere you go in Malaysia, one life-changing meal after another can be found in the numerous cafes, food courts and restaurants can be found on the main streets and back alleys of its cities, towns and villages.

While the home of Malaysian society can be found on the Malay Penninsula south of Thailand, the lip-smacking cuisine (such as the claypot chicken and mushrooms with rice dish above) can also be found throughout its holdings on the northern third of Borneo.

Malaysian food in Borneo is taken very seriously, so any foreign tourists that come here expecting a good meal are in for a serious treat!

Being one of its largest cities here, Kota Kinabalu is a natural home to the best of Borneoan cuisine, which is a mix of Indian, Malay, Chinese, and indigenous styles of cooking.

No matter your preference though, coming in one of these homely places and merely ordering a random dish will likely end with a pleasurable result.

With most meals costing less than $3 USD with drink included, it’s hard to go wrong (especially when you’ve got pork slices slathered in gravy, chicken noodle soup, and a refreshing mug of freshly squeezed pineapple juice sitting before, as it was for me above!)

My First Blogger to Blogger Interview: Speaking with the Couple behind KarolinaPatryk.com

Karolina and Patryk have had the honor of being part of my first blogger interview ... check it out!

While I have struggled to update and post on PoE in recent months (for the most part due to attempting to balance running a business with traveling and other aspects of my personal life), I have started to right the ship in recent weeks.

One of the things that has come out of the increased free time that I have had as a result has been my first blogger interview. Karolina and Patryk from karolinapatryk.com are a Polish couple who has been exploring the world for the past 18 months or so, and have also succeeded in making an income from the internet in the process.

Click here to read my thoughts on travel, life and work … hopefully this blogger interview┬áis the first of a series of guest posts and such that will increase my site’s profile across the travel blogosphere … enjoy!
