Filipino Market: Kota Kinabalu's Seafood Foodie Haven

by: Mhe-anne L. Ojeda

When in Kota Kinabalu, my stomach feels right at home with a late lunch at the so-called "Filipino Market" as most of the hawker stalls are run by Filipino immigrants (mostly from Mindanao)!

The market is on Jalan Tun Fuad Stephens and part of the Filipino Market complex where a variety of Filipino and local handicrafts are sold in the hundreds of cramped stalls, along winding alleyways.

I am not a big fan of street food, but finding a place in a foreign country that serves food that is familiar to my taste buds and palate is exciting. Besides, my CS host Chel highly recommended the place as she finds the food there sanitary and safe to eat. That sends a sense of pride on patronizing my own!

My grilled squid,green mango salad and rice with my two cans of grass jelly filled me up great!!
