Chicken and Oyster Sauce from Sabah Malaysia

Chicken and Oyster Sauce from Sabah Malaysia

Chicken in oyster sauce straight from the downtown local restaurant

Chicken in Oyster Sauce is more Chinese Malaysian good food. Available in any eatery around Sabah. It’s actually really good compared to some other “everyday” types foods available here. It’s not super fried, nor is it full of bones. It’s tangy, meaty, full of vegetables and very easy to find.

What does Sabahan chicken and oyster sauce taste like?

Rich and flavorsome, a plate is packed with delicious chunks of chicken that have been marinated in a blend of oyster sauce and fresh peppers. Again, it’s another one of those dishes that seems to fill a plate with meat.

Available, everywhere

Something that long-term travel lacks is a stable diet. Everyday something new soon becomes as monotonous as eating the same thing everyday. It’s important to bring some stability with your diet. Rich dark and delicious Chicken in Oyster Sauce is just that. It is a  favorite lunch time meal for me, with double rice servings though!

    This looks way better than the Chinese food at my local restaurants. And I bet it costs like 50 US cents! Is there a soy-meat version? ;)
