Tuaran is an idylic little town that is half an hour away from Kota Kinabalu.
We come up here often to visit my ah-yi and to eat at a stall above the Tuaran market place. The food is yummy and fresh (literally like seafood just out of the ocean and vegetables just harvested from the backyards).
Our recent jaunt there produced an exciting discovery. The original chef had left for greener pastures, and her mum (also her guru) had taken over the kitchen. The menu stayed the same, but we were in for an even better treat than we were used to. Yumz. Mums are truly the best.
