Lemon Chicken from Sabah Malaysia
It’s sweet without being too sweet. Filling without leaving you overstuffed. Best of all it’s tasty, fresh, crunchy and very enjoyable. Lemon Chicken from Sabahan Borneo in Malaysia is delicious.
Taking a look at the everyday food I find in Sabah
Lemon Chicken was my first meal in Sabah, Malaysia. Lemon “everything” is available in every street cafe it would seem.
I was nearly expecting to eat something more “Malaysian” until I remembered that Malaysia is a mix of Chinese, Indian, Malay and a whole lot more. For the tourist Sabahan food leans on on the Chinese / Malay side of culinary delight.
Chinese influence on the food in Sabah
With this comes a diversity of food. I realize now that writing down about food from Malaysia will also include food from China, India and so on. But, each one is as easy and typical to get in Malaysia as anything else.
But as it’s Chinese New Year … it seems one cannot escape it’s influence.
Lemon chicken is everywhere in Sabah
Lemon chicken is no different. Deep fried pieces of chicken infused with lemon grass, placed on a bed of lettuce with chives sprinkled on top along with a dashing of soy sauce. Rice comes with it in a separate bowl.
It’s not fancy 5 star cuisine. It’s local restaurant food. But it tastes good, is very cheap and available everywhere!
